My partner and I have lived in a small two bedroom, one bath home for almost five years. We've recently started talking about building on an addition to our home that would double the square footage (going from 960 to 2000+). We don't really have any idea where to start as far as securing financing for this project. Are there any good websites or other reading materials that anyone can suggest to help walk us through our options? When we first purchased the house we were told that we'd probably need to get a construction loan when we decided to add on, and that upon completion, we'd roll our existing mortgage and construction loan into a larger mortgage. This sounds reasonable, but I'd like to explore all options and just familiarize myself with the process before it becomes a reality. Any assistance that anyone can offer is greatly appreciated.
