Once you’ve researched mortgage lenders and have a budget through the pre-qualification process, now it’s time to get pre-approved. This is not the final loan process. All you are doing is asking the chosen lender to pre-approve a possible loan. This helps you in two ways: it shows the builder you are serious and that you are financially capable of building a new home and it gives you a target price range. You can click on the Lender Services button to see more information about our partnered lenders.
Do you already own land? If not, we have Agents on standby to help you find the perfect location for your new home. You can click on the Land Search button to search available land in our area.
You will work with our team to choose models for your dream home from one of our collections. You will work with our team to choose color schemes, decor, special features, needs and wants.
Once you choose your home plan, we will send the information to our design & engineering department where they will finalize the plans.
At this time, a deposit may be required to start the ordering process. The deposit will contribute to your final price. We require a $2,000.00 deposit for Modular homes, and $1,500.00 deposit for Manufactured homes. The deposit will contribute to your final contract price, and is non-refundable.
Once your new home is ordered, we will then receive an estimated delivery date.
As we get closer to the delivery date of your new home, we will then start applying for the appropriate permits required by the county and city your home will be located in.
Once permits are issued, our subcontractors will begin working on your property and your home. Before your new home arrives, we must make sure that the property is ready for your new home. This can be included in your Land Improvement Options. Then once the home is delivered, other subcontractors will begin working on the finally touches to complete your home. We normally expect a 2 month "wrap up" period while contractors finish this work. This timeframe can change depending on material availability and workload. These contractors will complete the plumbing, HVAC, electrical, and anything else contracted to make sure your home is ready for you and your family to enjoy.
As contractors begin their side of things, you will apply for power through your new power company. This will give them time to make sure everything is ran to your new home so you can have power.
Once the contractors have finished up at your home, we will call in for final inspections with the county to make sure we meet standards and regulations. Your lender will require a Certificate of Occupancy, which the county will provide once inspections are complete. This means your home is ready to move in!
How Exciting! It Is Time To Move In!
