Re: Getting pre-approved for New Construction Home

I was able to sign a contract before getting any kind of preapproval with the understanding that I would work with their lender and be preapproved within a certain time frame (90-120 days).  I had to wait to apply until after the last 30 day went past the 12 month mark, which was early June and my house is not scheduled to begin construction until mid-August as the builder didn't start to pull any of their construction funding until 30 days after my pre-qual.  It will vary based on the builder/lender, but it never hurts to ask.

Starting Score: 10/1/2011 EQ 568 TU 593
Current Score: EQ 664 TU 700 EX 701 (FAKO)
