How bad are the credit scores? Some lenders can go as low as 580 when it comes to credit. So if you are above that when it comes to credit you may have a shot. Otherwise, you may want to spend sometime working on your credit. The simplest way to fix your credit would be to pay off your credit and revolving credit balance on time. The best thing for you to do is to speak with a knowledgeable lender to see if you can get started on financing a new home. If you need additional assistance, feel free to reach out. Good luck!

Well, this is one business that is like no other. When dealing with a good builder the first thing they should do is get the home owner ready for multiple headaches, water issues, and inclement weather. Although it is a spec home, that just basically means,"heres one you can walk through and see if you like it".
Different kitchens can change all kinds of costs, adding frame work for granite counter tops for example or bigger rafters for same roof line but slate or concrete shingles. A 2000 sq ft home's price can litteraly be doubled in just having different finishes. Porcelain over ceramic tile, heated garage vs. un-heated.
I have been in the industry for 20+years and home building has a small margin and big headaches, namely weather, un-decided change orders and prima donna tradesman. Some hard learned, free advice is, when you are prepared for the worst and face it with determination, than it generally goes better than having everyone under the gun to finish on a schedule. Better to have a well built home that does not squeak, lights all work and you received all the bells and whistles that you may want than have one that is done in 6 months but the can lights shine through the ceiling fan creating that highly sought after strobe effect or your garage door shuts but there a 1" gap under one side that snow blows in creates a great drift in your garage that is supposed to be heated but is not etc, etc....
Just know your blueprints and treat your tradesmen with respect. I have seen more Architects be wrong than carpenters when having....let's say heated conversations about interpretations of the blueprint. A good Architect will listen to the tradesman. Good Luck!!!!!

Q. "We signed the construction agreement April 1st ... almost 60 days ago! How long should something like this typically take?"

A. Your contract should state a time for the builder to start. If it does not, then you're at the builder's whim.

Q. "... wouldn't it be based on that same job's appraisal? Just feel like we've sat on 2 months of valuable time. Is waiting 60-75 days normal from signing contract to breaking ground?"

A. The interim lender may have concerns about the builder's exposure to market conditions (ie. over-leveraged, etc.) and is closely monitoring the bank's risk in approving interim financing. There are too many variables to know for sure, but your contract will always be your guiding document.

Stacy Galvan answered:
Thank you all for your very helpful answers. I am going to get with my husband asap to discuss going to get prequalified. At the moment we are renting a house for 400 more than our mortgage is, so it's a lot like we have 2 mortgages already. Our lease is up in 8 months but if we are lucky enough to get into a new home sooner, we will discuss it with our landlord. My 4 year old son turned out to have a severe cat allergy and the landlord lived here with a cat, and despite deep cleaning and proffessional air duct cleaners, hepa filters and all, he has developed asthma attacks and is on breathing treatments twice a day as well as other meds. So you can see we have quite an urgent situation. Thanks again and if anyone has any more tips please do keep them coming. I can use all the knowledge my poor overwhelmed brain can handle lol :) ... more
