Getting the loan


Getting a loan l.jpg

Getting a Loan

  • Before qualifying for this program, all participants must have an approved loan.

  • Approval for a loan requires acceptable credit, some income and little debt.

  • We will help applicants get qualified.


How does the process work l.jpg

How does the process work

  • The homebuyer gets pre-approved for a loan.

  • The homebuyer is accepted into the program.

  • The homebuyer meets with Construction Manager to discuss what they want and which house to build.

  • The homebuyer closes on the loan.


How does the procedure work l.jpg

How does the procedure work

  • Clinch-Powell will draw down the amount of the loan to purchase the property. At that point, the property will belong to the homeowner.

  • As the home is constructed, Clinch-Powell will purchase the materials or services necessary, then charge the homeowners account. The homeowner will sign off on each draw off their account, so they will always know what is being spent.
