Hello, I agree with below poster that you may want to shy away from the large builders if you want a custom built home. These are not generally custom builders as far as I know.

I offer a construction loan that only requires 3.5% down. And if you own the land you can use that equity as the down payment and effectively have zero down. This is a great program backed by FHA only offered by a few lenders as far as I know. The qualification requirements are the same as regular FHA financing.

I'm available to help you at your convenience if you wish.

I can do a full underwriting approval ahead of time if need be and I also offer credit score improvement programs for free while we work on your mortgage.

Hi Trinidad,
I am simply shocked by the last post. I live in Sonoma Ranch and think it is the best area in San Antonio.

Honestly, I have friends that bought in those areas and are so angry at their Realtor for not telling the. I will be completely frank with you and honest. This is the safest neighborhood, I walk at night without any fear. The only crime I ever heard of was a bike stolen. People love it here and they take pride in their homes and yards. We have community events, pool, playground, courts, volleyball, and much more. Give me a call if you have any other questions. Martha ... more
