Home Crafters of Western Carolina was designed around the idea that building a home should be both fun and easy. Although it is a big decision and a seemingly daunting process, it really boils down to 3 things…a home plan that you love, inside and out, a place to build it and a way to pay for it. Some clients have land, some do not. Some clients have cash or a pre-approval, others do not. Many clients have a general idea of what kind of home they want, others are unsure. The first step in our process is to help clients articulate their needs and wants and to address any concerns they may have about building a home.
For the clients that have land, but are unsure about what and if they can build on it, we offer a free site evaluation. Our team includes professionals that have years of experience looking at raw land, both on site and on paper, to make sure that nothing will impede the building process. We have graders, masons, water and septic pros as well as surveyors and real estate attorneys that will weigh in on the project up front as to avoid costly over runs once building commences. Everything is done at your pace and at your convenience.
If you don’t have land, we will set up a meeting at our Design Center with local land locators who will give you options on land available in your desired area and with in your desired budget. We also have contacts with land sellers who are not on the MLS and would prefer to sell the property with out an agent. Once the client identifies the properties they like, we will begin the free site evaluation.
For customers that would like a pre-approval from a bank, we have decades old relationships with local lenders specializing in new construction lending. They offer all of the same loan choices that are available for existing homes including VA, FHA, USDA, Conventional and Green Mortgages.
