They will have you pay it.
I closed in July with my new construction. The builder didn’t pay anything. From intake appt to closing was about 6 months because that’s how long it took to be built. Chose my upgrades and offered about 10K less than purchase price and they accepted.
It’s the same IF you are buying from a builder because the land and loan is one. You can’t build if it requires 2 separate loans.
I did not have to secure funds with the builder. I had to have esrow which was 1% of the final cost of the home.
Intake meeting was January 17th
Verification sheets Feb. 15th
Submitted for approval Feb. 26
Conditions given Mar 4

@DCK822 They required 2 appraisals. One with the signed contract and one when the house was more than 90% completed.
I used Columbia, SC office.
I also went through a SC office. You will be unable to get qualified if the gap is longer than 3 months. Unless your income covers the amount you want to qualify for.
Here’s my timeline!
Dec. 1 – Homebuyers Workshop
Dec. 4 – Received NACA ID
Dec 11 – Everything uploaded
Jan 9 – Intake Meeting Uploaded other documented listed as Homeownership Ready & sent out renter/income verifications
It was at this time we thought it was gonna take too long because they needed by husband’s 30 day employment verification because he started a new job, but for a new construction it needed to be started 6 months in advance.
We decided to go back to NACA & our builder cancelled our contract per NACA but said they’d keep building and if NACA fell through they’d just put it back on the market. They gave us 90 days to submit a new Purchase Contract.

No, they mailed out the closing the same day or day after I received CTC final.
We set my close date back when we signed our purchase contract.
As you are married, you must be included and you can’t have any Recent charge offs.
We built our home. We stayed at UW-CTC for 2.5 weeks because they wait until the week before to do the final employment verifications. We moved to CTC-FINAL yesterday 7/8. We close Monday 7/15 so exactly one week.
Our purchase contract included a clause you cannot currently be in contract for another property.
Nope. I got a text that said it was there but it never was
