Frequently Asked Questions

What Is No Construction Loan Needed - Turnkey Construction?

Some builders require a construction loan to complete a project. That's not the case with Chase Custom Homes. We offer true one-stop shopping. With our "No Construction Loan Needed" program, you can build a new home with any kind of financing: FHA, USDA/RD, Conventional, Portfolio, VA, etc. and do it without a construction loan! When you build with us, we finance the complete build, at no additional cost to you. You pay no interest or finance charges throughout the build. Your bank takes over upon completion with an "End Loan." This "Turnkey" process simply means, a complete land + new home package, with no finance charges, or interest accrued. When your new home is completed, your bank takes over the financing, and you get the keys to your new home as if it were a new sale. It's simple and easy! Check out our financing page for more information or call 207-892-2700.

Do you only build homes?

We've been building homes since 1986 but we also do remodels, additions, renovations, repairs, commercial build outs, multifamily projects - you name it. Call us for: porches, vinyl siding, wood siding and accent materials, cabinetry, countertops, vanities, flooring, appliances, lighting fixtures, plumbing fixtures, hardscaping, walkways, roofing, garages and more.

Can I use my own subcontractors?

Have a friend or family member in the construction business? Yes, you can use your own subcontractors. While we have a network of preferred subcontractors, we are happy to work with other companies. The subcontractor will need to complete our subcontractor agreement and have a meeting with our project management before coming onto the build.

Do I have to use your floor plans?

No, you do not have to use our plans. We have a variety of popular floor plans to choose from as well as custom made plans or professional architect plans. We also offer drafting service to help you design your perfect home.

Do you charge to quote?

No, we do not charge for quotes or estimates. However, we do require a plan deposit for custom construction plans.

Do I have to build in your subdivisions?

No, you do not have to build in our subdivisions. We do have land available in many towns throughout Maine. If you have land willed or gifted to you or have purchased or acquired land in some other way, we will work with you to build your home. In fact, if you already own land, you can use that as your down payment! We can also help find the right piece of land by putting you on a real estate land search.

Will you work with my current Real Estate agent to find land/ build on land I am purchasing?

Yes we will. Chase Custom Homes understands the importance of proper communication and professional service when building valuable loyal real estate broker relationships. Real estate agents enjoy working with us because we've structured the relationship to benefit both them and their client. Many local agents turn to us for new construction build packages, putting a "similar to be built" home on their land listings.
