When a homebuyer asks the above question, they are really asking, “How much can I personalize my new home?” The answer depends upon if the homebuyer is purchasing a presale home, which is a home that has not yet been built, or an available Showcase home, which is a home that is either completely built or is in the process of being built. This article will focus on the presale home-buying experience. If a homebuyer purchases a Showcase home, the amount of personalization that can still be done will depend on how far along the home is in the construction process.
Once you choose the floor plan, and finalizes the paperwork involved in securing the home of your dreams, the fun begins. Structural options and exterior color schemes can be chosen at the same time as the initial paperwork.
If you are not sure of what selections you want, that’s okay as our expert Design Consultant will schedule an appointment with you at one of our design studios. Our design studios have a variety of selections available to touch, see and experience, including carpet samples, kitchen and bath tile, countertops, lighting and plumbing fixtures, and kitchen cabinet options.
Normally the selection’s process follows the sequential order listed below:
- Interior selections: paint color, counter tops, cabinets and flooring.
- Plumbing and lighting fixtures
