3. Find Land

If you do not have land, we can help you find land in your desired area. If you have land we offer a FREE Lot Evaluation to confirm the plan you have chosen will work on your lot and also gather information regarding your lot to assist in creating your cost estimate.

4. Create a Cost Estimate

Ask your Salesperson for a FREE Cost Estimate for the home of your dreams. Once you are aware of all of the cost involved in building a new home you can possibly upgrade your home choice or find it necessary to adjust your wants and needs a little to work within your budget.

5. Secure Financing

Red Door Homes works with many mortgage lenders, banks and credit unions as well as Farm Credit. The loan you will need to get depends on the property you have, or are purchasing, and your individual needs. We will be happy to match you up with the perfect solution to your financing needs.

7. Pre-construction meeting

You will meet with someone in our Production Department who will show you your plans which have been designed around your specific requests. This plan is unique to you and reflects the items that you chose when you completed your Purchase Agreement. The plans will be explained to you in detail so that you understand them. All of your questions will be answered, and you will even get answers to questions that you didn't even think to ask. There are no stupid questions. We believe you should be well informed through the entire process.

9. New Home Walkthrough

Once your home is complete and a Certificate of Occupancy is issued by the inspection office, Red Door Homes completes a thorough Quality Control Checklist and finishes the home 100% for presentation to its owners. The New Home Demonstration is schedule four to five business days prior to move-in. At this time we have an opportunity to introduce you to the features of your home, show you how they operate and also check the home to make sure it meets your expectation. If any items are left to be addressed they are completed over the next few days and then you move into a home that is 100% complete.
