Are you interested in building your own home, but not sure what it takes? Not to worry, we’ve taken members through this process hundreds of times. That’s why we can help you each step of the way. Here’s a brief overview of what you’ll need and what will happen.
The first thing you’ll need to do is create a set of house plans. You can hire an architect, find one online, or select a larger builder. You’ll also need a contractor to actually build your new home. Once you have the necessary help, we work together to create an itemized budget.
After your budget is complete, we can finish your loan & the work gets started! During the construction phase, you and the builder will submit construction draws. These are periodic payments to your contractor as they create the home.
Each month of the build period, Deseret First will perform inspections. In detail, we check that the work done matches up with the money drawn out. Not to mention, making sure the actual build is following the architect’s plan!
Finally, welcome home! Once your new abode is complete, you may want to consider long-term financing. In particular, we offer 15 and 30-year loans to pay off the construction loan.
One-Time or Two-Time Close
Only sign one set of documents and close on one loan.
Choose between a 9 or 12 month construction term
During the construction period, payments are interest only and made from the loan proceeds
Choose between 15 and 30 year long term
Lock your long term rate at the beginning of construction
Draws and underwriting are done locally.
Close on two loans, one construction loan and one for long term financing.
If you aren’t sure how long it will take to complete, extensions (at a cost) are available
Cost overruns can be covered with the long term financed (in applicable scenario’s)
Long term rates could be lower when the home is complete>
