As with every new home purchase, construction, and impending move, there are many moving parts. After you have determined if you want to build a modular or manufactured home, you are ready for the planning stages. Excelsior Homes has the experience you need for modular home planning. You need to anticipate many variables along the way and help pull together required resources. From helping you initiate financing, to selecting a building site, to making your home selection and then completing the construction process, including navigating local zoning and permits, Excelsior Homes makes your home buying process as quick and convenient as possible. It’s important to us that you have all information upfront, so you can make the best decision for your family. Please read through each of these sections carefully.
As with any home building project you can choose to self-finance, if you have cash readily available. Self-financing your modular home will likely save you time and money, and a construction loan would not be needed.
There are many different loan programs available such as conventional, FHA, VA or USDA. There is a period of while your home is being built, that payments will be due exchange for the work being done.
One option of funding such payments is through the use of a construction loan. A construction loan is a predetermined line of credit that is advanced at the times that progress payments come due and stays in place until completion of the home. Loan interest accrues only on the funds advanced, or drawn, from the construction loan. These loan advances would be used to compensate contractors as your home is being built. Once the home is completed, typically the loan liability from the construction loan will roll into a mortgage. The specifics of home construction loans can vary by lending institutions, so it is our recommendation you speak directly with the lending institution regarding the construction loan process.
Whether you already own the land or are searching for land, it is necessary to be certain it is a buildable site. It is important to check with city or county planning and zoning to determine if there are special covenants, regulations and/or set-backs for the property. Our team, at Excelsior Homes, is familiar with this process, and we’re here to assist in making sure you are allowed to build the home you want where you want to build it.
