The Home Building Journey with LS Homes:
Selecting your floor plan and your lot- The first step in a customer's home building journey would be to work with the sales manager to select the floor plan that best suits their needs, homesite and personal features to come up with a cost estimate.
Enter into a purchase agreement- Once the customer is satisfied with the final cost estimate, they will meet with their sales manager to authorize their purchase agreement and provide the initial home Purchase Deposit. LS Homes provides a customized contract form that goes into detail to address items that are important to both the buyer and LS Homes.
Mortgage Application- Within five days of signing the purchase agreement, the purchaser will need to contact a mortgage counselor and complete an application process. For your convenience LS Homes uses SunTrust Mortgage.
Personalizing Your Home- The next step in the home building journey will be to meet with our Construction Coordinator to review the plans and discuss the future steps in the construction process. Our Construction Coordinator will be the main point of contact during the entire construction process and will be able to answer any questions that may arise over the next few months. When the plans have been approved and all the selections made, then construction will begin.
Construction Walk-Thru- We have two other scheduled meetings; the first being your Pre-Drywall Walk, This is an opportunity for the buyer to walk through the home with the Building Representative prior to the sheetrock being istalled; a checks and balances. The the last meeting will be the Pre-Closing walk. Again, this is the time that the Building Representative will demostrate the mechanical aspects of the home. There are numerous policies reviewed at this time as well.
Closing and Move-In- By this time, the closing date has been scheduled and once finalized; the buyer will receive keys to their brand new LS home!
