Does CHIN ARCHITECT offer any financing programs?
Leveraging our strategic financial partnerships, we are able to offer a
variety of mortgage options to suit your individual needs including:
low to no down payment options, conventional financing with as little
as 5% down, no PMI options, FHA, VA and Rural Housing (USDA) programs.
Can I build a new home when I have an existing home to
Yes! We have several popular programs, which may grant you access to a
portion, or even all, of the equity in your current home. This equity
can serve as your down payment and possibly reduce, or even eliminate,
your existing home payment. Another key benefit is moving directly from
your current home into your new CHIN ARCHITECT without having to move
twice, rent, or pay unnecessary storage costs.
Can I finance land in my construction loan?
You can finance your land, along with your new home, into one
construction loan. This will save on two separate closings, which will
save you money on your overall closing costs. This also applies if you
already own your land and have a balance remaining to the original
lender as well. The balance of your land purchase will be consolidated
into your loan and will eliminate a separate payment.

Most of our home owners choose a one-time closing since you only have
one set of closing costs. This combines the cost of your land and the
cost of your new custom home. Or, if you own your land, you can use the

off the lot first - the lot and home can be combined into one
mortgage. Contact a lender today to get started!
