Pre-ordering a house

Thank you for your interest in pre-ordering an Advantage Home..  Pre-ordering gives you a chance to personalize your house by adding touches that will make it truly yours.

At Advantage Homes our goal is to make home ownership easy.  Our pre-construction process is designed to help you in that. There are three phases from pre-construction to move in:

1) Pre-construction  

During this time, one of our consultants will help you choose the best house model for you and discuss all the options available, from adding a half bath or garage, to choosing the colour of your vinyl siding. But don’t worry: you don’t have to make all the decisions right away.  The decision process is broken down throughout the construction phase.  

By the end of the pre-construction phase you will need to sign a standard and purchase sale agreement and secure your financing. For a pre-ordered house we require either a 10% non-refundable deposit or construction financing. Having a choice allows you pick the best approach for your situation.  Feel free to ask your consultant about construction financing and how it works. During the pre-construction phase we will also work with you to set closing and move-in dates. 

2) Construction 

Construction will typically begin within two weeks of signing the purchase and sale agreement.  This time is needed for securing all the required permits.  Once we’ve started construction, you will be able to stay on top of the construction and make selections through our specialized client log-in.  We will post weekly pictures for you to view and to share with your friends and family.  You can also post messages and ask questions, all from the comfort of your home or office.

There are three official walkthrough points.  Your home consultant will arrange these walkthroughs so you can visit your house.  At these meetings you will also need to finalize some of your colour and other options.  Don't worry, your consultant will outline all of these as construction progresses.

3) Post-construction 

Welcome Home.  It’s time for you to move in to your new house.  During this phase we will complete our standard walkthroughs as outlined in your Home Owner's Manual.  This will give us a chance to identify any service items that may come up and fix them free of charge through our industry-leading Advantage Home Warranty.
