If you’re looking to purchase a home, "Don’t buy your dreams. Build them."

If you’re new to South Carolina, or even if you’ve been here a minute, SAFE can meet your home loan needs regardless of the type of home you’re looking for, even if that means building a home from the ground up. SAFE lets you build your dreams for less with just 5% down and a one-time close, saving you money that you can use for something nice for your new place!

At SAFE we save you money, not only with a lower down payment to build your dreams, but with more cost savings with a one-time close. That way you aren’t closing on a construction loan and then paying more fees to close again on a 30-year mortgage, wrapping it all in to one process and getting you in your new home sooner. Plus, we do it for less, only requiring 5% down payment where most lenders charge 20%.

Get started today by calling (803) 469-8600 ext. 2313.
