Congratulations on making the choice to partner with Allen Edwin Homes on one of the most important decisions you will ever make – Homeownership! We are very excited to navigate you along the path towards your dream home. Along the way there will be many milestones and questions, so we have created a platform where you can access information about your selected options, documentation & photos of the construction process, community information and benchmarks of each phase of the process.
This portal is for any presold home buyers who purchased on March 1st, 2016 or later and any buyers who purchased a home prior to March 1st who did not dig until April 1st, 2016 or later. On May 1st we will be adding all spec buyers.

A comprehensive list of the options you chose during the Selections process is available for your review. You may also print additional copies if necessary.

Buyers are often curious about what to expect during the construction process. The dates documented on the Construction Schedule and the Escrow Schedule will be updated once tasks are complete; this will keep you informed about what to expect next.
Your Loan counselor will work with you to obtain a loan approval for your new home. In addition, they will provide you with information regarding how much money you can spend on options at the New Home Showroom. Finally, they will produce an initial loan approval letter (Pre-loan Commitment Form) which will confirm your ability to receive a loan and establish your maximum loan amount.
Your Down Payment Deposit and/or Lot Transfer costs (per Purchase Agreement) will be due at your initial New Home Showroom appointment.
Two Showroom appointments will be scheduled with a New Home Showroom Consultant. The first appointment is called the Consultation Appointment. At this appointment you will select the colors and option selections that are uniquely you! The second appointment is called the Final Selections Appointment. During this meeting we will review and finalize all selections based on your floor plan and budget.
After you have completed the selection process, Allen Edwin Homes will determine if your home requires a pre-appraisal. If required, we will provide your lender with the final purchase price, home plans and specifications so your lender can order an appraisal. Your goal is to complete the home pre-appraisal step within thirty (30) days from completion of Final Selections.
All customer are prioritized internally during the pre-construction stage based on the completion of your final selections. Once Allen Edwin Homes has secured all necessary permits, completed your pre-appraisal (if necessary) and completed lot transfer, your home is “Authorized to Start”.
The Allen Edwin Homes Closing Department will contact you and your lender approximately thirty (30) days prior to the anticipated completion date to begin the process of closing on your new home.
