In order to begin the buying process FCB Homes does require a buyer to obtain a pre approval letter through our preferred lender however buyers are not required to use the preferred lender to finance their home. One benefit of using a preferred lender is that they are familiar with the builder, sales staff, policies and requirements. Since the preferred lender knows what both the buyer and builder need from the beginning to the end of the building process this will help facilitate a smooth and timely closing.
