Building a new home is normally very different from buying an existing house, especially when it comes to financing your dream. Homebuyers new to the process may not realize that they traditionally need not one loan, but two, the first to pay for the lot and cost of construction, and then a mortgage when the house is ready for purchase.
Just as Inspired Homes is changing the way homes are built in the Kansas City market, the locally owned-and-operated builder has also simplified the way buyers pay for their dream homes by financing the construction.
“Securing two loans can mean a lot of legwork and headaches for homebuyers,” said CEO Ernie Wassmann. “You might be able to get a mortgage pre-approved on the Internet, but qualifying for a construction loan is much more complicated. Lenders require more information on the project, and since it’s a short-term loan, interest rates are much higher. Most lenders don’t even offer this type of product. Inspired Homes eliminates the run-around and additional costs by financing the construction on every home that we build.”

Through a combination of smart design, advanced technology and minimal waste, Inspired Homes has made the home-building process more efficient, saving homebuyers money and delivering a brand new home in less than six months. Financing the construction for homebuyers is just another way Inspired Homes helps get the home buyers deserve at a price they can afford.
Inspired Homes currently builds in four communities surrounding Kansas City — Kensington Farms in Lee’s Summit; The Reserve in Lenexa; Huntford in Olathe; and Whispering Pines Estates in Kansas City, Kan. All are sought-after neighborhoods where families value a quiet lifestyle with all of the conveniences — superior schools, shopping, dining and entertainment.
“The Spring Parade of Homes is a great opportunity to see everything that Inspired Homes has to offer,” said Dan Walsh, vice president of marketing. “Visit one of our model homes. See all the finishes and upgrades available in our Design Center. If you see your dream home, $1,000 secures your desired lot. And when it comes time to sign the agreement to purchase your home, a down payment of $10,000 to $15,000 is all you need and applies to your final purchase price. Some buyers get money back on the day that they close.”
Cornerstone Mortgage Inc. is Inspired Homes’ preferred mortgage lender. With Cornerstone’s selection of loan programs, technology and outstanding service, buying a home is easy and affordable. Contact Dave Brown for more information.
“Dave has worked with Inspired Homes since day one,” said Walsh. “He knows our company, our process and has the same commitment we do to helping homebuyers realize their dream.”
