After considering your options and doing your research, you’ve decided to build your home. Congratulations! But if you’re like most people, the idea of building a home from scratch can seem like an impossibility. How do you get from a blueprint to a fully constructed home? How do you evaluate the quality of one type of roof shingle compared to another? How much padding do you really need under your carpeting?
Relax! You’ve got Oberer Homes and our team of professionals on your side. We will help you answer all of those questions and any more that you may have. We make the homebuilding process the positive and wonderful experience that it should be. When you build your home with Gold Key, we’ll walk you through the adventure and be there to support you every step of the way.
No matter what your dream home looks like, there are some basic steps when you build a home with Oberer Homes.
Choose a Floor Plan
Whether you choose one of our plans, provide your own, or let us design one just for you, the first step in the homebuilding process is to choose a floor plan. We have many beautiful standard floor plans to choose from. We have open floor plans for families who love to entertain. We have one-story ranches for families who prefer living on one floor. Once you have chosen a floor plan, we will give you a base - or starting - price for that floor plan.
Check Out Our Work
We encourage all of our clients to visit a couple of our current job sites. Look us up and down, inside and out, from top to bottom, to discover our quality workmanship for yourself. We are confident you’ll like what you see. Check out our communities.
Next, you should explore financial options and secure your home loan. At Oberer Homes, this is another step that we make easy for you. We do not lock you into a lender. We will work with you and your favorite financial institution. We also accept FHA and VA loans.
Conduct a Homesite Survey
A meeting at your property site with your personal construction manager is scheduled at your convenience. At this meeting, we will discuss the placement of your home, availability of utilities, lot grading, and any other site-related topics.
Visit the Design Centre and Make Color Selections
Your new home should be a reflection of your unique personality and lifestyle. So, we schedule a special time for you to meet one-on-one with a Design Consultant at our 12,000 square foot facility. We have many high quality customizations for you to choose from, including bathroom fixtures, flooring, wall paint, cabinetry, appliances, and more. Many options are displayed in vignette format, so you can easily picture them in a real home. Our Design Consultant walks you through the entire process and provides expert advice so you can thoroughly evaluate your options. We want your home to be just that – uniquely yours.
Finalize the Price Quote
One of the primary concerns with any builder is the likelihood of running over budget. We have all but eliminated cost over-run in our building process. By taking the time and looking at every detail before contract signing, we minimize the possibility of surprises. We then review your floor plans, your site conditions, and a wide variety of options for your home. We take this information and generate our “Carved in Stone” price quote, so you know up-front what your new home will cost. After making your final selections, we generate your home price and perform one final review with you. If we are in agreement and everything looks ready to go, you sign your construction contract. Also at this meeting, if you have chosen one of our financing options, we will close on your new home loan.
Now the excitement begins! You will be amazed at how quickly your new home takes shape – from the day that the foundation is dug to the final walk-through orientation. Soon you will be imagining how your furniture and belongings will settle into your new home, and the dreams that will come true there. This is the time to sit back, relax, and imagine the amazing future you will have in your new home.
This is the day you’ve been waiting for! You will never forget the day you move in to your brand new home, custom-designed by and built just for you.
