WALKER HOMES PURCHASING PROCESS
Purchasing a new home is exciting and maybe a little intimidating. Let us at Walker Homes make the process as straightforward and stress free as possible.
Step 1 – Contact Our Sales Team
Call Sales at 1-519-373-6554 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are working with a realtor, you must accompany them on your first visit to our model/office and sign a realtor referral and co-operation agreement to qualify that agent to represent you. (no pricing can be provided until this is complete.)
Step 2 – Choose a Home from Our Collection
Select a house model that fits your family, lifestyle and budget. Once you have decided on a model it’s time to select the lot size and location that you would like your new home built on.
Step 3 – Choose the Perfect Lot
As soon as you have decided on the perfect model and location you do not want to lose it. Once you have your financing pre-approved from your financial institute and provide a 5% deposit (permanent residents) or 10% (investors) you will be given 2-3 calendar days to work with our sales manager to sign and move forward with a purchase agreement. (APS) During this stage we will review optional upgrades and changes to be included in your new home. Quotes will be provided and pricing changes reviewed for inclusion in the APS.
Step 4 – Agreement of Purchase and Sale and Legal Review
After a meeting with our Sale Manager to review and sign the APS. There is a 14 day cooling off period for you to get final financing approval and review all the documents with your lawyer. Once these two items are complete you will be required to sign a waiver acknowledging that all conditions have been reviewed and the agreement is now firm. At that time your second deposit is due. From here we will prepare for the construction of your new home!
Step 5 – Décor Appointment – Interior & Exterior Colour Selections, Kitchen Layout, Plumbing & Electrical Plan
Within the first few months after signing the waiver, our Walker Home design representative will contact you to arrange a selections meeting. The standard selections, finishes, plumbing and electrical items and kitchen layouts will be reviewed in this appointment. Some additional upgrade pricing can be provided during this meeting. However, some specific customer selections and requests may require custom pricing quotations that may require up to 5 business days.
*Upgrades can be selected and paid for during this meeting. No upgrades will be processed until full payment is made or the purchase price has been adjusted and if required additional financing approved.
