Benefits of Using Caruso Homes Preferred Lender

If there’s one thing that can make or break a home-buying experience, it's the financing process. The stress and uncertainty of securing a loan can often overshadow the excitement of purchasing a new home. 

But at Caruso Homes, we strive to provide our customers with an unmatched level of service and support throughout their entire journey to homeownership — from concept to construction to closing and beyond. 

One way we do this is by partnering with preferred lenders who have expert knowledge in new home construction financing. These lenders are familiar with our unique processes and understand the dynamics of building a new home, making for a smooth and surprise-free transaction. Let's explore the financing process and exclusive benefits you can expect when using a Caruso Homes preferred lender.

How Does New Home Construction Financing Work?

Financing a new home can be different from purchasing a used home. Depending on whether you buy a new construction home in a community, build on your lot, or choose one of our quick move-in homes, your financing options can vary:

  • Community living:If you choose to build in one of our communities, a traditional loan will cover both the land and building costs. You will need to receive a pre-approval from the lender and pay an Earnest Money Deposit (EMD) to write a contract on the home. Once the home is complete, your EMD will be applied to your deposit and closing costs.
  • On Your Lot:Building On Your Lot requires a Construction-to-Permanent Loan to finance the purchase of the lot (unless you already own the land) and the construction of your home on that lot. With a construction-to-perm loan, the funds are disbursed in stages as the home is being built. This allows for more flexibility and control over your budget as you only pay interest on the portion of funds that have been used. Once the home is complete, the loan automatically rolls into a traditional mortgage–without the need for (and costs of) a second closing.
  • Quick move-in: Financing options for a quick move-in home are typically similar to a traditional mortgage but with more flexibility and lower down payment requirements.
