10 Steps to Your New Home

We want you to enjoy the entire process of building your new home. That’s why we’ve streamlined every step. And we’ll be there to guide you, answer questions, and even help you find the mortgage that’s a perfect fit.

1. Purchase Agreement

Once you’ve chosen your floor plan, preferred elevation and all the options to E Customize your new home, you’ll sign a purchase agreement to reserve your home site. At this time you’ll also provide the initial $5,000 earnest money deposit.

2. Financing

Our in-house mortgage coordinator takes all the stress out of finding the best financing option. You can even apply online HERE. If you’re paying cash for your new home, we simply need a “Proof of Funds” letter from your bank.

3. Next Consultant Meeting

Your sales consultant will walk through your specific set of construction plans, which detail your home’s orientation, added structural and custom options, and other features. Our goal at this meeting is to make sure absolutely everything is exactly what you want, and to answer any questions you may have.

4. Selection Meeting and Final Sign-off

This step includes meeting with an in-house Interior Designer at our Design Center to personalize your new home. You’ll also review landscaping options. Next you’ll have the final sign-off meeting, where you’ll confirm that all options, colors and features are correct, and make a deposit on any upgrades.

5. Pre-Construction Meeting

At this meeting, you’ll confirm with your construction manager that all of your preferences are recorded on your floor plan. We’ll give you access to our online home building portal, which details important dates and includes photo updates and a timeline for estimated completion of your new home.

6. Framing and Electrical Walk-Through

This is a pre-drywall review with your construction manager to ensure that structural and electrical items were added correctly. And you can see the amazing quality of construction in your new home first hand!

7. Site Visits

Can’t wait to see your new home? You can visit the construction site during normal business hours Monday through Friday. For your safety, you’ll be required to wear a hard hat. Your sales consultant and/or construction manager will accompany you and answer any questions you may have.

8. Pre-Closing Final Walk-Through

We’ll give you detailed demonstrations of your home’s features and systems, and teach you how to effectively maintain them. We’ll also show you how to submit warranty claims, should you ever need to.

9. Closing

The big day is here! Our mortgage coordinator make sure you and your lender are aware of your closing date, as well as any documents and required funds you need to bring to the Title Company for closing.
