The Home Buying Process
Choose the Infinity community that best fits your lifestyle. We now offer a variety of community locations throughout the greater southeastern Michigan market. Meticulous thought and design goes into our models and floor plans, so we are certain that you find a home with the standard features you desire, along with a price that you’ll love!
Reservation & Financing
Once you have found the community that is right for you, its now time to
select where in that community your future home will be built. We recommend
our buyers reserve a homesite by placing a fully refundable deposit with our
sales staff. The reservation period will vary per community, so please check
with the sales manager for details. During the reservation period, you will
need to select your model, options and price out your home. You will also
be required to get pre-approved through our lender. Typically, you will
need the following documents to receive your pre-approval:
- Two years of W-2 & employment verification
- Most recent pay stubs for each person applying for the loan
- Past 2 months of bank, investment, retirement statements for all of your accounts
- We/our lender will obtain your credit score
- Verification of your current living status (Own, rent, etc.)
Contract Signing & Designing
Once we have received your pre-approval, we will then need to schedule an appointment for you to sign your Purchase Agreement. After the Purchase Agreement is binding, you will have up to 2 weeks to select all of your interior & exterior selections. This is the time for you customize your home by making decisions such as brick color, exterior paint and siding colors, roof color, cabinetry, counter top selection, flooring, interior painting, etc.
Pre-construction Orientation Meeting
You will meet with our construction staff to go over your home plans and site plan review, utility locations, review your selections and any change orders, etc. This will also give you more of an in depth look into what to expect from the construction process as well with getting acquainted with our construction staff/representative.
Shortly after your pre-construction meeting, we will break ground on your new home. The construction timetable will depend on the style and model of your home, so please be sure to consult with your Site Manager at the pre-construction meeting on an estimated date of completion. You will also receive periodic progress updates (usually bi-weekly) from our sales staff. Aside from your periodic progress updates, you will be given the opportunity to view your home during construction. Consult with your on-site sales manager for any additional items that you may want to add to the home (where feasible).
Approximately 30 days prior to closing, you will be contacted by our sales representative to go over your final sales summary and pre-closing procedures. We will also be in communication with your lender to ensure that your financing is being properly coordinated with the closing date of your home. Within 7 days prior to closing, we will conduct a final walk through with you so that you can tour your home prior to closing. This is the time for you to address any items that need to be corrected prior to closing. You will also be given the opportunity for a re-walk through just prior to closing to verify that all of your walk-through items have been addressed. Any items that are considered punch list items will be formalized at closing in which we will prepare a list indicating the nature of the punch list item and a completion date.
Now that construction has been completed and all the paper work has been completed, it is time for you to move into your new Infinity home! At closing, you will receive an executed copy of our Limited Home Warranty, which includes a validation form that you will need to sign and return to our main office in order to validate your warranty file. We offer a post-closing 30 day follow up warranty and our year- end warranty.
(Please note it will be your responsibility to contact us with warranty items.)
