Answers of Common Questions

What changes can I make to my floor plan?

You simply tell us what you want to change, and well make it happen. We have a full time design department, so whether it be changing the interior of your home by moving walls or adding square footage, or redesigning the exterior, we can customize according to your wants and needs.

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 sell?

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.

What is included in the price of the home?

CHIN ARCHITECT has been recognized for having one of the lowest claim rates in the nation.

How do I know if my lot is buildable?

CHIN ARCHITECT will schedule a time for your personal builder to inspect your lot. He will review things like locating your home on the lot, your setbacks and locating your utilities.

Have land?

Great! The first step is to evaluate your site. As a custom builder who has built more than 6000 homes, we know each lot has unique characteristics. We build your home on your land - the way you want it. With hundreds of home plans to choose from and each one customisable to fit your needs, we will work with you to make sure your home fits perfectly.

Don't have land?

That's no problem. About half of our home owners didn't have land before they came to us. We have valuable relationships with the real estate community in each of our building areas who will be happy to help you find the perfect lot for your home.


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 equity towards the down payment. Keep in mind, you do not have to pay off the lot first - the lot and home can be combined into one mortgage.  Contact a lender today to get started!
