Building

After signing your purchase agreement, we wait for permits from the city or township, and then construction begins! During the building process, we remain firmly entrenched by your side, walking you through all the construction meetings to follow, as well as the questions and issues that arise.

Frequently Asked Questions

What happens during the build?

You’ll typically have at least 3 “official” construction meetings during the build process: (1) Pre-construction meeting: Before construction begins, you’ll meet your superintendent or CM and review the plot plan, selections, and chat about any questions you have about the process. (2) Pre-drywall meeting: After insulation and before drywall, you’ll have another opportunity to walk your home with your superintendent and see what’s behind the walls before drywall is installed. (3) Pre-closing orientation: This is the last meeting, typically a week or so before closing, where you’ll learn about warranty, how to use your new home, and complete a final punch list.

Can I enter the home while under construction?

Different builders have different rules for this, but generally, yes. Builders typically ask that you let the sales agent know prior to your visit, and request that you stay out of the house while trades are working.

How long does the typical homebuilding process take?

Depending on things like the builder, city permitting, and time of year, most builds take anywhere from 6 months to one year. Timing to sell your current home here is critical, and we’ve been through the process many times before with much success. That’s why hiring us for both sides of the transaction helps to make it a seamless process!
