New Home Construction Process Timeline

When building a home, it is important to understand the process that starts with looking at the land and determining if there is a home or not. This includes finding a location, putting forward proposals together with the seller, and finally signing a contract.

Many times as developers, we work with builders that have previous relationships with sites they have developed. By having this connection, it can speed up the process and create a better product for your buyer.

If you are interested in seeing what products and services are included in your new home, then check out some of these new homes being built today! They are hand-selected by experts to be of high quality.


Structural construction

Once the owner and/or architect has selected a location and evaluated the site conditions, the next step is to determine if construction is allowed in the area.

Construction is currently not allowed in many areas of the country due to structural deficit and safety concerns. If it is allowed, then it must be measured at a minimum in two weeks!

If not, then the next step is to determine if there are local construction experts who can help with some work-off-the-shelf (WTS) items. These people can usually help with small projects as they have experience and expertise in their scheduling and delivery capabilities.

If this does not work, then there are some basic structural constructions that need to be done. The first one is determining whether or not you want reinforcement in place. Next, determining what type of wall or roof you want for your home. Once those are completed, then you can begin installing your windows and doors.

Exterior construction

Once the site has been selected, the next step is to determine what type of exterior construction will be used. There are many ways to build a home, so decide based on your lifestyle!

Typically, there are two main ways to construct homes: wood-frame or steel-and-concrete. Both have their benefits and drawbacks.

Wood-frame homes were historically more popular and more accepted than others due to their simple design and simplicity. They can be found in many places, like the back of a truck or as an option at the new luxury homes.

If you are looking at more traditional or simpler homes, then this is the way for you! Steel-and-concrete homes are more modern and contemporary looking, which is what you are looking for if you are looking for a little extra luxury.

The third possible style of home is glass–or glassless! These houses do not have walls that separate inside from outside, which makes them very open.

Interior construction

Once the demolition and interior construction is complete, the home is ready for you to live in. Now is the time to extend your stay!

Most new homes are built in a standard 90-day window. This means that the home is inspected and approved for sale, but it does not mean that people can immediately move in.

Typically, people lease or rent the house until they find an place to live permanently. Then, it’s off to the store of fun things to do together as a family.

The process of selling a home can be stressful, especially if you are getting ready to move In or you have big plans for your property.

This article will go more in depth and explain some common mistakes new owners make when changing ownership.

Paint and finishes

After your builder performs a walkthrough, he or she will usually paint the house to match the contour of the site. This can include painting doors, floors, and accents.

This process can take several weeks, so do not rush it. The painter must also finish all edges and decorations, such as painted ceiling moldings or painted walls.

After the painter marks where studs are and any other studs, they can start preparing the home for someone to live in. The bedroom must be painted soon because once someone moves in, they want to begin their new home immediately.

The kitchen may need to be painted next due to people wanting to prepare at the new house. Once that is done, the flooring needs to be laid.

Cleanup and turnover

After your house is finished, you’re ready to start cleaning up. Most homes need some sort of cleanup, and it’s important to do so!

Housepreneurs usually have a lot of stuff they’re leaving behind. So, you may have to pick through some possessions, find things you wanted or needed, and/or ship away anything that isn’t used.

This may be done in stages, so as not to overload the first person who comes to your home. Once this is over, you can start working on turnover.

Sorting through things can be stressful, but it is important to get everything out in order. New homeowners should work together and help them out during this process.

Warranty work

After you purchase the home, you’re ready to start building. However, you’ll need to arrange for some warranty work such as closing systems and repairs.

Home warranty companies will come out and offer their services, but they do not always have the highest quality work. Therefore, it is important to talk to these companies to find out if they can resolve your issue and leave you feeling comfortable that you will have what you need if something major happens.

They will usually charge a fee for this service and can be found at state or national government level sites like Warranty companies are also able to help with legal matters when issues arise.

When working with a warranty company, it is important that you use their services because of this coverage.

Settlement date

Now that the planning and preparation phase is complete, the next step is to settle in for the long wait. The settlement process can be scary, especially if it is your first home.

Most home sales have a set date until which homes in stock can be obtained. When a home is sold, it has a specific date on which the new owner can obtain their title.

Home sales are not always scheduled for an exact date so many times, making getting a loan and building your own dream home a little out of reach at first. Even if you are prepared with your funding timeline, having an extra month of peace and convenience will help you feel more confident that you’re getting a good deal.

When going to market your home, there are some things that you must take into account such as insurance coverage requirements, neighbors’ information, and any re-hab or upgrade requirements. All of these factors must be considered before and after the sale occurs to ensure your privacy is kept.
