- Sign your contract and give Ryan Homes your deposit. Your lot will not be held without this. We were able to give them a small amount ($1000) at the initial contract signing and then a larger amount 30 days later.
- Meet with their mortgage broker within 7 days of signing your contract to complete the necessary paperwork for loan approval.
- Within 14 days of signing your contract you must make all of your exterior and interior decisions at a 2nd meeting with your sales representative. During this 14 day time period you also have to meet with their flooring company (in North Olmsted) to finalize that portion of your house also. *If you make any changes to your options and upgrades after the 14 day time period, you will pay a $200 change order penalty.
- About a month after you sign your contract you'll meet with a representative from Guardian Technologies. This is the company that tries to sell you a alarm system, sound system, additional phone, cable, and internet outlets. This company is paid directly by you to them. The costs are not rolled into the mortgage. This must be why you can meet with them after the 14 day period.
Our sales rep stated it takes about 72 days to build a home - even in the dead of Winter. Our ground breaking is set for the end of January with possession in April. She said to keep her updated on the progress of selling our current home and if we need to move our closing date on the Ryan home up or back to let her know and she'll work on this for us.
Say a prayer we sell our house in time!
