Building with the Right Lender

Building a new home is exciting. And there are a lot of decisions to be made during the process. Most of which are about how your home is going to look when it’s completed. But one of the more important decisions you’ll need to make is what lender you’ll use.

Now, most builders prefer that you work with a lender of their choosing. And they’ll offer plenty of incentives to make it an attractive option. Those incentives can range from offering to pay closing costs, upgraded finishes or appliances, and even a finished basement or sunroom. Again, these are all very enticing offers. And they can be hard to pass up.

However, it’s likely they’ll come at a price of increased closing costs and a higher interest rate. And while builders may tell you they can give you the best loan option, you should always shop around to find a lender that’s right for you.

Relationships Matter

This business is built on relationships. And in this instance, the builder’s preferred lender is actually more invested in that relationship. Now, it’s possible that working with their lender is your best option, but you won’t know until you do your own research. We believe it’s best to work with a lender that’s invested in a relationship with you.

Better Financing

Who’s going to give me the best rate? It’s the ultimate question when it comes to financing your new home. A lender like Guardian Mortgage can offer you a variety of new construction specific loan programs with competitive interest rates, and several rate lock options.
