The Crescendo Builders’ process of custom home building uses a systems approach to the buyer process. We have taken a confusing and unpredictable process and made it smooth, systematic and fun, every step of the way.  From the moment you walk through our doors to the time you turn your key in the door lock of your new home you feel cared for every step of the way.  Let’s explore our eight step process to new home ownership:

STEP 1   INITIAL MEETING- CHOOSE YOUR FLOOR PLAN

You can start the process in the comfort of your home by looking through our on-line library of homes and using FLOOR PLAN SEARCH to find the home that is right for your family lifestyle and that fits on your lot. You can save your favorite plans to SAVE TO MY FAVORITES to share with your family and to use during your first meeting with us. During this meeting we will discuss any changes that you would like to incorporate into making this home a custom home for you.

STEP 2 LOT INSPECTION

A meeting at your lot is designed to discuss the placement of your new home and identify any potential development issues and cost related to developing your site for your new home.

STEP 3  FOLLOW-UP MEETING

At the Follow-up meeting we will review your plans, initial selections and allowances for land development.  During this meeting you will have a clear understanding of what is included in a Crescendo Builders home.  You will also be presented with  our  purchase agreement and various other legal documents the comprise the legal understanding of your new home purchase.

STEP 4 – COLOR SELECTIONS

Let the fun begin!  Based upon your lender’s prequalified loan amount, this is the time to select colors, textures and features. With our ONLINE CUSTOMER ACCESS PORTAL you can begin looking at customization choices for your new home.  You will be able to narrow your favorite selections so that when you meet with our staff your selection process goes smoothly.

STEP 5 PRE-CONSTRUCTION MEETING

We will review your house plans, your selections, and what to expect during construction.  We will make a joint site visit if needed to review any last minute issues.
