Building New with Danny & Miles: Lender Q&A

Building New with Danny & Miles: Lender Q&A

Building New with Danny & Miles: Lender Q&A

One of the most important (and sometimes intimidating) elements of building your own dream home is figuring out your financing. From interest rates to debt-to-income ratios, financing can be a complicated, multi-faceted journey filled with calculations, loan options, and fine details. Eastbrook Homes takes the guesswork out of the financing process by connecting our homebuyers to professional, preferred lending partners throughout West Michigan and the Greater Lansing Area. Our preferred lenders partner with you to ensure you have all the information you need to choose the best financing option for your needs. 

Eastbrook Homes homebuyers Danny and Miles recently completed the financing process for their custom-built Violet Home in Eastbrook Home’s Cook’s Crossing community. We had the chance to ask them a few questions about their lending experience, including any tips or words of advice for new homebuyers just beginning the process. Join us as they share the details and reasoning behind their lending choices. 

Tell us what preferred lender you went with.

Our preferred lender was Lake Michigan Credit Union.

Why did you choose LMCU?

LMCU is who we personally bank with and we have always had a positive experience with them. 

What type of loan did you choose? 

We chose the Finance First loan. 

What about Financing First made sense for you and Miles?

Miles and I wanted to lock down our interest rate during the construction period and for the life of the loan.

What tips or advice do you have for people considering a Finance First loan? 

Be aware of the housing market and what direction interest rates are trending. 

How are you feeling so far about your new home building process?

We broke ground a few weeks ago and it was very exciting to see the progress on our foundation. 

Any new year’s resolutions you’d like to share?

Miles wants to spend more time reading. Daniel wants to pay off all student debt this year.

Eastbrook Homes is thrilled to offer preferred lending options like Finance First to our homeowners. Through dedicated, long-term partnerships with local lenders, Eastbrook streamlines the lending process for you, so you can skip the tedious timeline of conventional financing models and get straight into designing, building, and living in your dream home. 

We love to work with lenders who understand the Eastbrook Homes build process. Our preferred lending partners are intimately knowledgeable about Eastbrook timelines, requirements, and fulfillment steps. Why settle for a standard lending experience that takes time out of your day and keeps you from enjoying the exciting process of building your own home?
