Instead of buying a prebuilt home, some clients decide to build their own home. When you, (or your builder), are building a home from the ground up, it could be months or even years before you need your mortgage financing.  Depending on market conditions, it could be advisable to get a “builder’s rate hold” mortgage.  This is allows you to hold a, “worst case scenario” rate for the completion date of your new home.
