Step Three: Setup a Meeting with Our Sales Team

During your meeting, a sales expert will set up a personalized and itemized cost analysis for you based upon your home preferences. This will allow you and your family to decide not only which elements of your new home you prefer, but also which elements suit your budget.

Step Four: Community Tour

An SHC sales expert will take you on a tour of your community of choice to help you choose your ideal lot. Think about which style lot will offer what your family needs – a corner lot for extra space, trees for shade, or a cul de sac for a more secluded feel.

Step Five: Write a Contract

Once you have made your lot, model, and floor plan decisions, schedule a meeting with our sales team to complete an official contract for your new home. It’s important to note that this is not the end of your involvement in bringing your new home to life. Even after completing a contract with us, you and your family will be involved in the build process.

Do you have a house to sell?  No problem. We can create a contingent contract based upon you selling your current home.  This will hold the lot and pricing for you while you sell your current home.

Step Six: The Build Begins

At SHC, we create a site plan for your approval, which illustrates how the house will sit on your chosen lot, and you must approve this before we begin building. Our timeframe for each new home build is approximately 120 days from the first dig.  If you are concerned about this timeline being too long or too short, we have immediate delivery homes available, we can help you find a rental property, or we can offer an extended build timeline longer than 120 days.

Once your house is framed, we will schedule an electrical walk.  This gives us a chance to go over what’s “behind the walls” and the overall structure of your new home. Our customers are also able to use this time to tell us where they would like certain electrical items, such as cable outlets, to exist.

Next, we’ll give you notice for settlement as soon as possible to ensure you have time to plan your move. We also provide two walk-through appointments before settlements to ensure your new home meets your families wants and needs. In addition to these appointments, we also encourage all of our homeowners to complete a 30-day and 11-month inspection and adjustment list to address any final needs.  These adjustment lists can be completed via the form on our Customer Care page.
