Houston REALTORS®: The Home Purchase Process
Getting Down to Business… Paperwork!
We make paperwork fun! When your Clients choose to build a new David Weekley home, our Sales Consultants will go over the Purchase Agreement, in detail, before they sign. We want to make sure everyone is comfortable with the process before we begin building their new home!
We do allow a limited-number of contingencies in each community on our to-be-built homes. Clients are often still trying to sell their current homes once they decide to build with us. Please have them bring the listing agreement and make sure the home is reasonably priced to sell in their market.
The amount of earnest money required varies per community. Please check with a Sales Consultant to find out the amount for your Client’s new community.
Is there an Options Deposit?
The required deposit for Custom Choices™ that include your Clients' options and upgrades is typically 20% at the time of selection. Although in Houston, David Weekley Homes offers a Quick Start Program. If the Buyer completes their design selections and signs their "final" contract within 10 days of writing their Purchase Agreement, no deposit will be required for Custom Choices. Homebuyer Change Requests (upgrades that receive pricing by our Building Consultant) require 100% deposit at the time of selection. Please check with the Sales Consultant to confirm the specific policy on making deposits.
