Home Buying Process


You’ve selected the Van Metre home of your dreams. The perfect lot, with a floorpan and elevation just right for your lifestyle and personal taste. So what’s next? Three milestones lie ahead—but don't worry, we'll be with you every step of the way, right up to the time you walk through the front door of your new Van Metre home, and beyond.

Step 1

Contracts & financing

This is when you finalize your choice of structural options, complete the Agreement of Sale, and approve the terms of your mortgage as negotiated with your chosen lender.

Step 2

Selections & Scheduling

With your loan approved, it’s now time to personalize your new home! At our Design Centre, you work one-on-one with a trained consultant to choose all non-structural selections for your new home. Once all your selections are finalized—including even your multi-media wiring—construction can begin and you receive an estimated completion date for your new Van Metre home.

Step 3

The Building Process

As we build your new home, expect to attend various milestone meetings with your construction team. These meetings include a Breaking Ground Meeting before construction commences, a Behind the Walls Reveal prior to drywall installation and your Welcome Home Reveal once your new home is complete. The purpose of the first two meetings is to address any questions you have throughout the construction process. At the Welcome Home Reveal, you review your warranty and learn how your new home operates. After that, all you have left is Settlement—expect to sign papers and receive the keys to your new home!
