Purchasing a home presents a variety of challenges and concerns. A pre-existing home may not meet the design, space, or functional needs a buyer wants. A new home offers more control, but the prospect of the work and time involved in starting a home from scratch concerns some buyers. Yet if you’re looking at homes in Birmingham AL and would like a brand new home that meets all of your needs, let Scotch Homes show you how straight-forward and satisfying it can be to purchase a home built just for you.
The process starts by meeting with the principle builder and choosing your lot and house plan, including the placement of the home on the lot. You can work directly with the builder, who is a licensed real estate agent, or you can use your own agent. Once this initial part of the decision is made, the buyer signs the 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty New Construction Contract package and provides the preapproval lending letter so that construction can begin.
Before the tools are picked up, you meet with your construction manager and go over all details of the floor plan to address any possible changes that will ensure the home meets your needs. Whenever possible, Scotch Homes will work with the buyer to make any necessary changes.
As well as the overall layout finalization, you will also need to make decisions about materials, colors, and various other elements. Scotch Homes has a Builder Trend program that the buyer gains access to in order to see the selections that need to be made and the related deadlines. You also have the opportunity to work with their Interior Designer to receive guidance on a variety of elements, including brick colors, flooring, wall colors, countertops, light fixtures and more. Their experience comes in handy when you’re feeling overwhelmed with all of the attractive options.
At this point the building work starts, but the buyer still gets to play an active role in the process with daily updates, photos, milestones, and more, along with a pre-drywall walk through.
Once construction is complete, you then get another walk through before closing, once all of the inspections have been done and everything is up to standard. As well as receiving a maintenance manual to help you keep your home working smoothly for years to come, the project manager will also walk you through your new home, showing you how everything works and where everything is located.
After all of this careful attention to detail, all that is left is the closing and soon you will be handed the keys to one of the beautiful, customized homes in Birmingham AL that Scotch Homes is proud to build.
