How The New Home Building Process Works

Building or Buying a Home

When it comes to building a home, your first task is to choose a community that is perfect for you.  Some things to consider would be what part of town you want to live in, proximity to your job, what size home, etc.  You will also need to decide whether to build from the ground up or purchase an inventory home.  With our many versatile floor plans, selecting the perfect home, home site and upgrades is just the beginning.


Finance Options

Pre-qualifying for a home loan will tell you how much you will be allowed to borrow. Apply with one of our preferred lenders today and they will be able to help you with all your loan needs. Once you are satisfied with all the information provided by the preferred lender, your goal is making full loan approval.  It’s the primary step in securing a loan for your new home purchase.  Your lender will advise you about the specific information they will require for your full loan approval.


Making your new home yours requires a deposit and signing a new home sales contract to secure your new home.  Our sales professionals will go over and explain the new home sales contract.  At this time you can choose options and make your selections for your new home.  Once you have full loan approval, a contract signed and selections made, we can get started on building your new home. Private consulting firms inspect and assure building codes in every home.  Construction managers and superintendents conduct inspections daily.

New Home Orientation/Closing Day

A new home orientation is done before you go to closing.  The construction manager or superintendent will cover all the important information regarding your new home.  The sales professional will schedule the closing date and time with the title company.  The closing coordinator will give you an estimated final amount to bring to closing along with any other important items they may need. Once you have signed all the closing documents, the closing coordinator from the title company will process all your paperwork, which includes transfer of title and final funding.  Once complete and the loan has fully funded, the home is all yours and ready for move in!  Keys are picked up from the model home and moving day begins.  

Congratulations on your new home!
