I'm a bit surprised any builders provide financing.


(see Dodd Frank discussion)

Do you mean that they have a bank arranged willing to provide financing to the buyers?

The question I always ask a buyer when they bring up this subject:

If the builder has two homes under construction, one that he/she is providing the construction financing therefore paying the interest and one where the home owner is providing the financing, which one do you think will be finished first?
