Selections

Part of the excitement of buying a new home is selecting personalized finishes and colors. Some Homebuilders may send you to multiple showrooms to make your selections for flooring, cabinetry, countertops, and more while others offer the convenience of an in-house Design Studio where an appointment will be scheduled with an Interior Design Coordinator who will be the guide for the selections process and provide advice to make it an easy and enjoyable experience.

Pre-Build

Before the Homeuilder can begin construction, the buyer must own their lot, and the construction financing must be in place, and a homebuilder’s risk insurance certificate must be submitted. Once the loan is funded, the lot is closed, the insurance certificate is received, and the permit in place, construction begins! At this time, our team will introduce you to Builder Signal.
