Has anyone worked with Homestead Homes - homestead-homes.com?

They currently build only in the Midwest regions (MN, IO, WI, IL, CO etc.) but provide their own financing, plan development, lumber package, and O-B support. I'm interested because unlike similar programs (homeworx, ubuildit, presidents homes, etc) they pay the first six months of the construction loan interest. If purchasing land, they will similarly pay the interest on land valued up to 35,000.

My wife and I are currently in talks with Homestead about building our new home in northwest Missouri.  We've spoken with our rep. for a few months and have visited a couple of houses under construction.  A good friend of ours also just built a house with Homestead last year.  In helping him out during several phases of construction I was pleased with the general quality of materials that Homestead offers and their support staff seemed very good.  My friend was satisfied with the process and said he would work with Homestead again.  My wife and I both have pretty busy careers, and when you throw in kids that doesn't leave much time for building a new house.  By going with Homestead we can cut out some of the time/hassle of finding materials and also eliminate some sub-contractors by choosing what work we would like to do ourselves.   We could save more money by doing everything ourselves but this seems to be a good choice for us.  We still have more questions to ask before we make our final decision so I'll let you know what happens.

Don't be fooled by their offer for 6 months free interest. Nothing in life is free. They are actually charging you interest and hiding it in the material package. The best way to do it is by either making the interest payment on the construction amount you have drawn or to set up an interest reserve and roll it into the end loan.

Rich, have you had any direct dealings with Homestead?  I agree that the company is making their money in other ways and that was one of my questions when I met with reps from Homestead.  They were, imho, very forthright and open about their bottom line.  Your suggestions are good but not necessarily applicable in this situation.  Even if you didn't go with a construction loan through their financing company the package price would be the same.  What's more important is their interest rates and the amount of time you think it is going to take you to build.  Like anything else in life, there are no cookie cutter answers when it comes to home building and what works for some won't work for others.  The important thing is to do your research, make a plan and then remain flexible but focused.
