Build On Your Lot

What is build on your lot?

Build on your lot is a unique program, where a buyer brings land to us and we build a house on that land.  Building a Kindred Home on your lot is a very different process than either buying an existing house or having a new house built in our communities.  Read more below or call Tammy Garcia at (877) 301-9255 for more information.  Kindred Homes offers this program currently in the Dallas-Ft. Worth and San Antonio, Texas areas.  Call to see if your land will qualify for our program!

First, if you're having a home built on land that you own, then you own the project from the very beginning. Second since you own the land, you, not the builder, provide the financing.  Those two differences mean that building on your land is a much more intimate process than simply buying a home or having a new house built in a community.  You are involved in every aspect of the building from choosing the land, to where the home will sit on that land, to any minor adjustments made to the design.

Key Steps and important information about building a kindred home on your lot.
The purpose of this is to give you the knowledge you need to achieve your goal of having a house built on your land. We want to empower you to confidently gather all of the necessary pieces together to make your dream home come to life.
The four essential steps
1
Land

You will need to own a lot or property that is zoned for residential construction.  Partnering with Kindred Homes provides you with all of the tools it takes to build your home. To begin, we need to determine if the land is suitable to build on and what needs to happen to prepare your land for construction. If you already own the land you’re planning to build on; you are ready for our team to assess your land. A visit from our construction team is a simple process in which our team members will meet you at your land for the initial assessment.  From this assessment, you will receive an estimate of the site costs, for instance, the cost to clear trees, creating proper drainage, bringing fill dirt to create a building pad along with other items.  Our construction team will guide you through all of the details in preparing your land for construction to begin.

Financing

Kindred Homes has partnered with HCP Mortgage, LLC (Texas) and FBC Mortgage (Florida) to provide you with programs that allow you to take the steps of financing a Build On Your Lot home all bundled into ONE LOAN. 

Our team will consult with you on your budget to determine a down payment and monthly mortgage payment that meets your financial goals. Once you close on your construction loan, you will pay interest only on the amount drawn from the loan and advanced to Kindred Homes at a percentage of completion points in the project. Your construction loan is like a credit card that you use to pay for the work, which is secured by the estimated as-completed value of your new home. Once your new home is complete, the construction loan is modified into a typical permanent home loan with principal & interest payments.
