Financing Your New Home
Financing your new construction home is a critical part of the home buying process. This should be the first step when you consider purchasing a new home in Las Vegas. Until you know how much money you qualify for, there's no sense in looking at homes you may not be able to afford. Of course you may find that you can afford more then you thought.
So where do you go or who do you turn to?
There are no shortage of lenders out there. Such as
the financial institution you utilize for banking. It's hard to beat the rates from a credit union, though you'll need to be a member. You can look around online. Ask a friend for a referral. Your Realtor likely has a preferred lender that they have used before and know what kind of service they provide.

Be sure to ask you lender about the various programs they offer. There are even down payment assistance programs out there. For more info check out the articles below.

Is it a normal practice for a builder to have the buyer obtain the construction loan?
We are looking at building a new house and the builder has said I need to obtain the construction loan. They have some "preferred lenders" that will allow me to obtain a construction loan with the down payment I was planning on doing and convert it to a permanent loan in the end.
How do home construction loans work?
Construction loans for new-built homes are either obtained by the homebuilder or prospective owner. In pre-recession days, small builders had greater access to capital but now must frequently put the onus on the buyer to obtain the loan.
