Home Buying Guide: The Home Buying Journey

The Home Buyer's Journey

Let Shea Homes be your personal guide on your journey to home ownership.

It all starts with a simple thought... we're tired of renting; we need more space; we have too much space; etc. Whatever your reason, embrace this time to truly understand your motivation for moving, create a wish list of items you desire to have in your new home. This is a wonderful starting point, that's why we call it dreaming, since your ultimate decision to purchase will be based on your emotions first followed by your financial ability.
As you know by reading this online information, the perfect place to start exploring is the internet. This is also the time to visit new home communities, speak to friends who have recently purchased a home, and scout out all resources pertinent to the end result. Some things to research... the builder, the neighborhood/community, amenities, quality of schools, pride of ownership in the surrounding homes, the stability of the community, and of course, the home itself. In addition, be sure to also explore your financing options and know what you can afford. www.sheamortgage.com
Game on! Now that you've completed your research, it's time to narrow down the choices to those that most meet your needs and offer the best value. But remember, value isn't always the lowest price, since it's hard to put a price on the floorplan, community, and schools that you desire. Now it's really about refinement and bringing your vision into focus.
Congratulations, you've made the decision to move forward with the purchase of your new home. Now the fun begins. With a new home, you get to select the floor plan, architectural style, homesite, home options and designer selections. More importantly, as a builder that has been nationally recognized for outstanding customer satisfaction, we will be there to assist and take care of you every step of the way.
An exciting aspect of purchasing a new home is being able to watch it come to life. Our team will contact you at various stages of construction to inform you of the progress of your home. You will have the opportunity to personally walk through your home with your Superintendent to review the construction activity and during this time our team will demonstrate the key components of your home.
Here's the day your dream is fulfilled! Your months of planning all come down to this single day when you move in to your brand new home. To assist you with this process, our team will provide with the tools necessary to make this a smooth transition. Part of that transition is your introduction to our warranty program. We have developed a proactive approach called 1-5-11. We will "pre-schedule" warranty appointments one month, five months, and eleven months from your home's closing date. During these appointments we review your home in detail to see if there are any warrantable items or concerns that need to be addressed.
While you've become acquainted with your home and acclimated to your community and surroundings, our warranty team is there to ensure your home is performing up to our standards. We'll continue to educate you on basic maintenance, explain how you can keep your home performing like new, and address any questions or concerns you may have. It is our commitment to make certain you take full advantage of your new home for many years to come.
