If there’s any question about your new home budget, it’s always best to go through a prequalification process with a reputable mortgage company, so you can understand exactly what you may qualify for and what mortgage payments may entail. You’re free to use a lending institution of your choice or we can help direct you to some we have a history with. Just give us a call.
With your budget in hand we can help guide you to the plans within your budget. Browse our home plans and make a selection. We offer free estimates and can typically have those estimates back in a couple of days and often in a few hours.
We usually have a number of building sites throughout the region or we’re happy to build on just about any home site of your choosing. We can help you find property too. We may even already have a home for sale under construction that would fit your needs.
Various factors on a home site may affect build costs. We’ll review your site as a part of the formal quote to evaluate specifics of your site.
If you’re ready to proceed there is normally a $1,000 deposit due at this stage. This is credited in contract when you build. We’ll draft a design agreement for your review which allows us to create prints, elevations and a hard quote quote for you.
We try to have as many decisions made before signing the contract as possible to avoid surprises mid way through your build. We often say we build the house twice. Once on paper and then for real. Our goal is to leave as few items undefined as possible.
If using bank financing, you will need to take a copy of the final quote to the bank for loan approval. The process for finalizing the loan and completing the closing can take several weeks so we advise you to remain in contact with the lending institution throughout the previous steps to make sure everything is in order. Once loan approval is complete construction can begin!
