How much do I have to put down?
We normally require 10% down, but it depends on the community. Our preferred lenders can pre-qualify you and let you know what you need to put down depending on the community and loan program you choose.
How long is the building process?
The timeline for building depends on each community, floorplan, or whether it is an inventory or custom from the ground up as some require additional time. On average, our standard homes take approximately 6-8 months to construct. However, this is dependent on factors such as HOA requirements, the amount of personalization, permitting, zoning, inspections, weather, and holidays. The best way to understand the timeline is to speak with one of our Sales Agents.
Do I need a Realtor?
The choice is yours. Sunrise Homes works with homebuyers that have realtors and ones that do not. Rest assured, if you do not have a realtor, our Sales Agents will guide you through the process to ensure that you understand each component of new home construction and answer any questions that you may have before, during, and after purchasing your new home.
If I have a real estate agent, do they need to visit with me?
In order for your real estate agent to receive commission from Sunrise Homes they must be the procuring cause of visit and must accompany you upon first visit of a model home at which point your realtor must complete a Sunrise Homes Registration Form.
What is the benefit of using a preferred lender? Do I have to use your lender?
There are several benefits of using a preferred lender such as competitive rates, reduced fees, and superior customer service. Preferred lenders also understand the local market, builder’s process, and can assist in on-time closings. We already have lenders set up in our system for a streamlined process, ask our Sales Agents for more information on which preferred lenders we work with. You are not required to use our lenders; however, we do strongly encourage it.
