Preferred Lenders

Financing your new home doesn't have to be complicated.

What is a “Preferred Lender”?

Since 1997, we have done business with countless mortgage companies and lenders. Some experiences have been great, and some have been not so great. This extensive experience has given us the insight to know which lenders are the best. Our top of the line preferred lenders have gained our trust by consistently providing our homebuyers with exceptional customer service, extremely competitive rates, and positive experiences. 

We highly recommend using our preferred lenders! Not only do they provide low closing costs, very competitive rates, quick loan approval, and various lending programs, but they also grant you an added monetary incentive (ask for details).

In the end, we know you can count on them for the same reasons we do—to get things done fast and right.

The Finance Process
1.Get Started

The first step in the process is to contact one of our lenders and apply for a mortgage. You will be asked to provide specific financial information to get things started.

2.Choose Your Loan

After reviewing your application, our lender will help you determine the loan and payment options that best suit your needs. Once you are satisfied, your file will be reviewed and pre-approved.


Before your home is finished, an appraisal will be ordered and your file will be updated to confirm that nothing has changed. Your file will then be reviewed by underwriting for final approval.


With your application approved by underwriting, you will make arrangements to meet with our title company to sign the final loan documents.

5.Fund & Record

Post closing, it usually takes one business day for your loan to fund and record. Once recorded, you will officially own the home.

6.Move In

Once the recording of your loan is verified, we will get in contact with you to turn over your keys. Get those boxes ready because it’s time to move in!
