So you're building a new home
One New Home Sales Agreement
First, schedule an appointment with your new home consultant. At this appointment, you will finalize your lot reservation and floor plan. At this time, you will also select any upgrades or options that you wish to add to your home. A contract will be prepared, and a deposit requested. The documents and deposit will be forwarded to the title company. You may be required to send a copy of these documents to your lender.
Two Loan Application & Approval
After your contract is accepted and processed, it's time to apply for your loan. Please schedule an appointment with Kindred HomeLoans, our preferred lender. During your application process, you will need to be prepared to submit several documents to the lender. Your lender should provide a complete guide to what they will need to complete the application. You have 30 days from the contract date to complete the application and receive final loan approval.
Three Personalize Your Home
If your contract allows design selections, you will meet with one of our design specialists in a studio to help you every step of the way. See and feel the choices in cabinetry, fixtures, flooring, lighting, and more at our Design Studio, with a variety of choices all in one place.
Four Pre-Construction Meeting
You will meet your construction team for the first time at this meeting to review the floor plan, design selections, as well as the plot plan and location of the home and driveway on the site. At this time, the construction team will answer any questions you might have before we begin construction on your new home.
Five Construction Begins!
Construction is often the most exciting time in the building process and can also be one of the most stressful. You will receive weekly updates from your community team as we build your home and if you have any questions as well, please don’t hesitate to reach out. During construction, we ask that you do not visit your new home without a Kindred Homes representative with you. Construction sites can be dangerous, and your safety is important to us.
Six Pre-Drywall Meeting
As part of our commitment to quality and customer satisfaction, Kindred Homes provides homeowners with the opportunity to have a pre-drywall meeting. This meeting allows you to check the progress of construction, confirm locations for your electrical selections, and talk through the remaining construction process with your community team as we get closer to completing your new home!
Seven New Home Orientation
Upon completion of your home and prior to closing, you will have a final orientation with your construction team so they can demonstrate and explain products and features in your new home. This is also the time to review all finished surfaces such as cabinets, countertops, faucets, hardware, light fixtures, floor coverings, tubs, mirrors, windows, walls, etc., so that any imperfections can be corrected prior to closing.
Eight WELCOME HOME
Shortly before closing, your construction team will meet with you in your home to review any items that might need correcting from the New Home Orientation. You will also review your home warranty and our customer service processes. Home maintenance items will be discussed with you at this meeting as well. Home maintenance is essential to keep your home in the best possible condition. Please do not hesitate to ask your sales or construction team any final questions.
Before closing, the title company will provide you with details regarding dates, times and the funds needed to close. It is essential that you are prepared for your closing. A delayed closing will result in a delay in moving into your beautiful new home. At closing, you will be provided with the keys, and you will officially be a Kindred homeowner! Welcome Home!
