Here are several tips when building a house with a construction to permanent loan: (1) you will need a licensed, insured builder that is willing to submit documentation to become an approved builder. The VA program does not allow for owner/builders; (2) the borrower and the builder must submit a complete set of plans and specs for the home when applying; (3) the builder takes on more responsibility with this loan than with a 20 percent down conventional loan; (4) closing costs are a part of the builder's responsibility; (5) build a home that is common in size and design for the area; and (6) do not build on land that is larger than what would be considered 'standard and customary' for the area. For more information, read the VA VAntage Point Blog. For more on VA construction loans, see this Military.com article and Q&A.
