Today’s buyers have the choice of two types of houses on the market:
build new or buy an existing home.
Buying a new home and going through the building process can be exciting and overwhelming, to say the least. This is where the team at Stoneridge Homes comes in, we will walk through the process with you, from executing the contract to the settlement and customer service after you move in.
Home buyers planning to buy a brand-new house often cite energy efficiency, open layout, and a warranty. But one of the most talked about benefit is the ability to select appliances, flooring, paint colors and other design elements that will make this your own home a “one of a kind”.
There are a lot of decisions to be made, many tradesmen working on your home, all kinds of materials being delivered, inspections, the list goes on. But there are two constants throughout this process, you the homeowner and the Stoneridge Homes team. Together we can make this an enjoyable and rewarding experience.
- We start with a “Pre-Construction Meeting” where we review your selections, how the house will sit on the lot and discuss what to expect during the building process.
- Next, is the “Framing Walkthrough”, which will give you a good idea of the room sizes, how they flow with each other and the layout of the kitchen cabinets, etc. This is also the time to review the electrical locations of outlets, switches, and lights.
- Then, is the “After Trim Walkthrough”, once the drywall is complete, interior doors, trim and cabinets are installed and the painting has started. At this point, you will be able to visualize the finished product and see how everything is coming together.
- Finally, before you go to closing, together we will perform a final walk through of your home and conduct a final inspection. This walk through provides an opportunity to spot items which may need to be corrected or adjusted, learn about the way your new home works and ask questions about anything you don’t understand. We will go over the operation of the house’s components, responsibilities for maintenance and upkeep, warranty coverage and procedures, and who to contact in an emergency.
