How long does the reservation/building process take?
You start with selecting the lot that you want to reserve & the home plan you want to build. The reservation deposit is a refundable $5000 and is good for 30 days. At the time of reservation, we will provide a copy of the recorded condominium documents. Within the 30 days of the reservation period, our Sales & Design team will schedule a series of meeting times with you to select your interior/exterior colors & finishes. Once you have completed the selection process, we will sign the Purchase & Sale Agreement. At this time the deposit due is 10% of your total purchase price less the $5000 reservation deposit. The balance will be due at your closing on the home.
