Q: What is the down payment?

A: Currently, the down payment is $3,000 and needs to be given at the Customer Journey Meeting in order to reserve your lot. We only accept check, money order, or cashiers check. Checks must be made out to Paul Gabriel Trustee.


Q: I was pre-qualified does that mean I am approved for a loan?

A: No it does not. The Pre-Qualification lets you know that you are a good candidate for a mortgage loan and the loan amount for which you could qualify.  There are still some factors in the underwriting of a loan that could prevent you from being loan approved. 


Q: Is the interest rate fixed for the term of the loan?

A: Yes. The interest rate is fixed for the term of the loan.


Q: Do I have to include my spouse on the loan?

A:  You do not have to include your spouse on the loan, but you will need to demonstrate that you can obtain the loan on your own.  The non-purchasing spouse; however, must be included on the Deed of Trust.
