With all the flurry of building going on in our neighborhood I thought I would share a bit about the building process here. Over the many of years of building houses with the same contractors the process has been finely tuned. I call this little lesson “Home Building 101”.
For the buyer who is new to the home building process this “well tuned” process creates a smooth pathway for home building decisions and ensures the details of the project are remembered.
For the buyer who is not new to building this process provides enough flexibility that you still have all the choices you want and yet the process eliminates the headaches associated with working with multiple contractors and making sure that everything moves along.
Pick a house plan and lot, then pay your Earnest Money deposit of $3,000. We have seven floor plans and 18 platted lots to choose from.
Meet with staff to select interior options.
Sign Contract for purchase and make first payment of 35% of contract.
Second and final payment as per contract.
Follow and enjoy the building process!
Walk through your completed home for final approval, then…
Come home to Stillwaters!
Enjoy the week ahead and follow the progress of the houses under construction!
