Is the Homesite reservation. Now that you have selected your one of a kind home it’s time to find the one of a kind piece of land to place it on the home site. Not every home fits on every home site. So now that we know the plan, we will show you a home site. Your plan fits on one to select your home site. It’s time to do a seven day refundable deposit called a Homesite reservation. This will take your favorite one off the market for the next seven days. Then we will go over any other remaining questions you have before moving forward to purchase agreement. Homesite reservations are important because we can always duplicate the home, but we can never duplicate the land that you put it on the fourth step for your new homes broken arrow are your structural options and pricing. Now that your home site is reserved, we will meet back at your favorite home and reviewed the smart flex features that are available to you for your plan and create a price out quote for you.

These options can also be found on the interactive floor plan section of the website. This is all done in an effort to get you the information you need about pricing.

At the time of purchase, we will apply the funds from your Homesite reservation and an additional deposit towards your purchase. At this time of purchase agreement, all decisions for the structure of the home need to be final, such as number of garages, one story or two bedroom count and anything affecting the footprint of the home. Other decisions pertaining to colors and finishes can wait until the design studio for the purchase agreement. It will be a one hour meeting. We will go over everything for your structural and home site selections. And you will also watch one hour informative video regarding everything you need to know from after today to completion of your home. At this time, we would ask for any additional deposits due, depending on the purchase price of your home. If your home is two 50 to 300, it is $5,000 for your earnest money. If your purchase is 300 to three 50,000, your
Speaker 3: (05:57)
Earnest money amount is $10,000. Anything that is from three 50 and over is 5% towards your earnest money. And that will all go down for your down payment to be fulfilled. At this time, we will also figure out if your contract is contingent or delay of build. The next step in the 10 step process is your design studio appointment. At Shaw homes. You will have your own personal design consultant to help you walk through the process of picking out the colors and finishes in your home. You will be in very good hands.

The first is called the pre drywall meeting at this point in construction, where we are ready to dry wall, but all the guts of the home are still exposed for you to go over with your construction manager.
