Contract + Construction Finalization
It’s almost time to break ground on your brand-new home! During your pre-construction meeting, your new home specialist will review all the details of your new home (including plans and costs) and go over the upcoming stages of your new home’s construction. Once your agreement is signed, we will lock in pricing and review your upcoming construction milestones.

Welcome Home Celebration
Your home is complete! It's time to review your home's features and warranties with your experience specialist. This meeting occurs within one week of closing and is mandatory for all Betenbough new home buyers. Your experience specialist will also discuss things you should do to maintain your home after you move in.
It's time to approve and sign all closing documents, legally transferring ownership of your new home to your name. Our in-house closing specialist will walk you through each document and make sure that all signatures are accounted for. Closing on your home will take around one hour. Once complete, you will receive the keys to your new home!
Your New Home Warranty
A member of our warranty team will be in contact with you after closing to proactively schedule your 30-day warranty orientation. You will also have an 11-month warranty check-up to ensure that everything in your home is working properly. As a new Betenbough Homeowner, you can rest easy knowing that your home is fully covered by your included two-year comprehensive new home warranty.

Everyone was so friendly and helpful and so concerned about me being extremely happy with my new home that it was just so refreshing to deal with people like that because you do not see that in today's society.
