The process of building a home


The way most homes are built go as follows: 

1) The home buyer picks a lending institution with whom they will have their mortgage. 

2) The home buyer gets qualified for the amount of home they can afford. 

3) A contract is signed between the home buyer and the builder for a specific house. 

4) The lending institution goes through the loan process and gets final loan approval. 

5) The builder is told that the loan has been approved and gets a construction loan to finance the construction process. 

6) The house is built, and at the closing money is exchanged.

One way to save money is the Construciton-Perm Loan. This is when the home buyer gets the construction loan and the bank disperses funds throughout construction. This constuction loan turns into the home buyers permanent loan. This saves money by eliminating closing costs on the construction loan the builder has to take out. A home buyer using this type of financing could save up to $4000. Another benefit is that the interest can (but doesn't have to) be paid by the home buyer, creating a possible tax deduction.
