Frequently Asked Question

What do I need to do to see a home?

Contact our office, speak to one of our agents, and answer a few basic questions.

Do I need to get a mortgage to buy one of your homes?

The majority of home buyers obtain a mortgage from the lender of their choice to purchase a home unless they have sufficient funds in reserve to pay for the home. We can recommend an experienced lender.

What do I need to make an offer on a home?

Either 1) a letter of pre-approval from your lender informing us that they have pre-approved lending you up to the ammount of the sales price of the home or 2) a proof of funds letter from your bank showing that you have sufficient money in the bank to pay for the home in cash. Your lender/bank representative will be familiar with both of these documents.

Do I need a real estate agent to buy one of your homes?

No, you do not. However, if you already have an agent, please ask them to show you one of our homes today.

How long does it take to build a home from start to finish?

Under normal circumstances, a home can be completed between 5-6 months from applying for a permit to getting a Certificate of Occupancy from the county government. We have several homes in our current inventory that can be completed more quickly.

What is a Certificate of Occupancy?

A Certificate of Occupancy is a document 1) that is issued by the local county government 2) that certifies that someone can live in a home and 3) is issued after all appropriate inspections have been completed by a competent building inspector employed by the local county government.

Will you build a home on my lot?

We do occasionally build on an owner's lot. We typically review the lot and all relevant factors to determine where a home could be placed to both satisfy the lot owner and local government code.

Can I customize the home I want to build/by?

It depends. Before the building process begins, you can customize your home as much as your budget allows. However, after the building process begins, you can only change things that have not been started/completed. For example: you could change the color of the carpet as long as we haven't bought or installed carpet already. Also, changing things can result in your costs going up. For example: it will cost more money to put hardwood flooring in a room than it will cost to put carpet in that same room.

Why should I buy one of your homes?

Because they are beautiful, economical, well-constructed, feature-packed and beautiful!
