When you choose to build with Drake Homes, we will guide you through the entire process and make it exciting, easy, and fun. We build over 40 homes each year, so we’re able to provide visual examples that allow your ideas to become reality. We bet you’re wondering how everything comes together, right? Well here’s the process we think you’ll really enjoy.
No matter what you have in mind, the initial meeting is a complimentary opportunity to brainstorm with our team. We’ll talk through your ideas and general budget, share some thoughts of our own, and together, decide if there’s an opportunity to collaborate.
When you decide that Drake Homes is the Iowa home builder for you, we’ll work extensively to determine how we can get you the best new home possible. With professional realtor services, we can also help sell your old home! We hate surprises as much as you do, so we pay special attention to all the details as we prepare finalized details and overall pricing.
After the details are clearly explained and a Purchase Agreement is signed, you’ll be introduced to the members of our team that will guide you smoothly through the entire home building process. Using some cool technology, we’ll prepare a precise layout of the entire construction process, timelines and quality materials to be used throughout your new home. With our years of experience, we will help you choose items that match your style and fit within your budget. In fact, many customers have commented on how the materials we use in our homes are considered upgrades with other builders, so we think you’ll really enjoy this stage of the process. In short, this is when you make the selections that will bring your new home to life!
As selections are made and building plans are finalized, you’ll be notified as your new home construction gets underway. On average, residential home construction takes three to six months and we understand that communication is key, so we work to really explain how things are progressing throughout the entire build.
As your new house begins to look more like home, the excitement of seeing everything come to life begins! Our team will continue to communicate progress, while also touring you through the home to talk through your preferences and ensure the selections made before construction are still in-line with your final preferences. As your flooring, paint choices, appliances, cabinetry, and overall interior design comes together, our team will make any final tweaks before we work through closing on the home and hand you the keys to your brand new home. From there, all you have to do is enjoy the home of your dreams!
