Q. How do I go about ordering a home at Wynsome Knoll?
A. You can either complete a lot hold to reserve a lot for a short period or have an agreement of sale prepared as soon as you've decided this is the best home for you. The first step is to just stop into our model or contact our home counselor and complete a simple Lot Hold. The Lot Hold allows you to choose your lot and reserve it. A check for only $500, fully refunded if you decide differently, is needed with your lot hold. A lot hold will keep the lot that you want your very own for a period of time. Most buyers use a lot hold period for a week or two so they can sit down with a mortgage rep and go over their mortgage qualifications. Anytime after the lot holds or the same day if you prefer, you will enter into an agreement of sale. This document will spell out the price, conditions, settlements and other details of a real estate contract for the state of Delaware. Just contact our home counselor to arrange a convenient time. Also at the same time of the agreement, you'll have the chance to design the interior of your personal town home by selecting flooring types and colors, kitchen cabinets, countertops, etc. Again, our home counselor will be there to make sure you select everything that we need to make your selections into your new home.
Q. I've never bought a new home before. Where do I start?
A. Your two best first moves are to stop by the model home during open hours, or make an appointment to tour the model at your convenience. (Our home counselors are glad to accommodate your specific hour needs whenever possible, just contact us via this website). Take a tour and experience Wynsome Knoll. The second step is to allow a mortgage rep to contact you and determine if you qualify for a home. They can do this over the phone or in person, your choice. They'll ask you some basic questions, like how much money do you make, what are your debts and take a look at your credit report. Then, based on these three, the mortgage rep can make a determination if you are qualified to purchase. You can ask the home counselor for a mortgage rep or visit our Financing Page.
