In order to do that, you need to get pre-approved for financing.

Simply contact Premier Bank to get started, and you will be pre-approved before you know it.
Where do you want to build in Ostrander, OH?
If you don’t already have land, you’ll need to purchase a homesite. Since Wayne Homes is a custom on-your-lot builder, your next step toward a home will be identifying your land. A good place to start is by working with a licensed Realtor, like our preferred real estate partner in the area, Jodie Monebrake.
However, you absolutely can start a land search on Zillow or Redfin on your own to identify potential home sites in Ostrander. You’ll just need to work with an attorney to finalize the deal if you choose not to work with a Realtor. Wayne Homes’ helpful guide to Choosing a Home Site will give you all the details you need to navigate finding land in Ostrander, Ohio.
Why should I choose to live in Ostrander, OH?
The village of Ostrander is so quaint. It is a quiet village of around 700 residents and hosts some of the best Fourth of July and Halloween celebrations in central Ohio as well as an annual car show.

The recent population increase is partly a result of a new development and village annexation in 2005, known as the Meadows of Mill Creek.
