Is the homesite included in your sales price?
Short answer: Yes! A standard homesite is included in the purchase of your new home. However, if you would like a larger, tree-lined, lake view, cul-de-sac homesite, those homesites will have a lot premium. Other homesites in the community might require certain structural elements, which will be reflected with a lot premium. If you have questions, your community sales manager will be able to answer those questions for you!
Why are the home prices different in each community?
If you visit more than one community in which Arbor Homes builds, you may discover that prices for similarly styled homes may be different. That’s because the standards of each community dictate certain practices that can affect cost. Some communities, for instance, may require brick, additional coach lights or dimensional shingles.
Do you build basements?
Basements are available in select communities. Ask your Community Sales Manager for details.
What sets Arbor Homes apart from other builders?
What stages will I go through in building my Arbor Home?
Throughout the home building process, you will encounter a number of milestones that mark the completion of one important detail and the beginning of the next essential step.
What is a credit score and why does it matter?
A credit score is what most lenders use to determine your credit risk. Your credit score affects both how much and what loan terms (interest rate, etc.) lenders will offer you at any given time. Taking steps to improve your credit score can help you qualify for better rates from lenders.
How much money will I need to put down for Arbor to start my new home building process?
$500 in Earnest Money is all it takes to begin the building process. Your Arbor Homes community sales manager will then meet with you to review the purchase agreement, finalize your selections and arrange an appointment to meet with one of our preferred lenders to secure your financing.
What do I do if I currently own a home?
If you currently own a home, you have two options.
