Your Dream Home is 14 Steps Away!
Mitchell Homes is thrilled that you are considering our company to build a brand new, fully customizable, and exquisitely designed home on land that you own. That’s what we’ve been doing for over 30 years, and we love making homeowners’ dreams come true!
If you’ve never built a home before, you’re probably wondering how in the world you’ll be able to manage everything that needs to be done. Here’s the good news: When you partner with Mitchell Homes, you have engaged with a full-service team of new home consultants, design specialists and contractors to handle all the details involved with a new home construction project. You can have complete confidence in the concierge-style treatment and care that you’ll get at Mitchell Homes, because we take the time needed to build each home as if we’ll be living in it ourselves.
Our 14-Step Process is described below and we’re ready to get started on one of the most satisfying experiences of your lifetime – building a new home that’s exactly the way YOU want it.
Step 1: Call Mitchell Homes
The journey to your dream home begins at Step One with a call to Mitchell Homes and a visit to our website, here. It takes about 30 seconds (literally!) to create a MyMitchell account, where you can save images of your favorite homes and design inspiration photos. Also, you can set your preferences to recommendations of homes you may love. Our website is so easy to use and navigate.
As you browse through our array of floor plans and design options, just click the HEARTS where you see them to add to your favorites. Then, when you meet with our New Home Consultants and Design Specialists in Steps 5 and 7, you can quickly pull up all your favorite photos to review during the meeting.
Step 2: Obtain Mortgage Pre-Approval
Mitchell Homes offers top-of-the-industry financing advantages that you won’t find anywhere else. We call it SimplyMitchell because there’s simply no down payment, no construction loan costs and no closing costs once you are approved. In fact, you pay absolutely nothing on your new home until your first mortgage payment after you’ve moved in. You can fill out our simple and hassle-free Pre-Approval Application here. To view your savings at different loan amounts, you can access our SimplyMitchell mortgage calculator here.
Now you can save even more! For a very limited time, Michell Homes will buy your rate down 1% if you purchase $25,000 in eligible options and upgrades on your new home. On a $450,000 loan, this will save you $104,134 over the life of the loan. Plus, you still get our SimplyMitchell savings that add up to $29,250 on a $450,000 home. To calculate the savings on different loan amounts with this limited-time offer, view our calculator here.
If you’re worried about not qualifying for a mortgage loan, our Mitchell Homes team has relationships with lending institutions that can help with credit repair. Our promise is to get you the best price possible.
Step 3: Choose your Home Plan
When you partner with Mitchell Homes to build a new home on the land you have purchased or inherited, you won’t be forced to settle for a cookie-cutter home in a neighborhood where all the houses have the same two or three floor plans and color schemes.
Our website makes it so easy to explore our impressive collection of fully customizable floor plans in a variety of the most popular styles including Farmhouse, Ranch, Craftsman, Cape Cod, and more. You can even click to see our gallery of floor plan options based on the number of bedrooms and bathrooms that you want, or even based on the preferred square footage ranging from 950 to over 3,000.
At the bottom of every page on our website, you can request to download a FREE Plan Book that’s filled with inspiration.
Don’t forget to click on the HEART whenever you see a floor plan that strikes your eye. We can’t wait to review your favorites with you!
Step 4: Sign Construction Agreement
We’ll walk you through the construction agreement and answer any questions that you have. The process of building a home takes plenty of patience from start to finish, and your Mitchell Homes team wants you to feel completely comfortable with all the decisions and documents that come up along the way.
Step 5: Personalize Your Home with Options & Upgrades
Here’s where you take a big step toward creating a home that’s unlike any other. Each Mitchell Home comes with over 50 standard interior and exterior features in addition to thousands of optional, affordable upgrades you can choose from to further personalize your new home. Would you believe that you can fully customize everything in the home down to the plugs on the walls, if you so desire? We offer over 40,000 different selections of options and upgrades. If you live near one of our four design studios, you can see many of these upgrades up-close.
Our website and the free Plan Book are excellent resources to learn more about all of the choices to make your home totally unique.
Step 6: Complete Mortgage Application
We’ll help you complete and finalize the mortgage application. You can count on Mitchell Homes to have your back on this important step.
Step 7: Design Center Selections & Approval Plan Day
You’ll meet with our Design Specialists to select and finalize the design of your new home. Mitchell Homes offers thousands of design choices, so it’s helpful if you come to this meeting with all of your priority picks and must-have elements in mind. Our Mitchell Homes team will take all the time you need to design your new home exactly as you’ve always imagined it. When this meeting concludes, you will have approved the plan and given the green light to move forward on construction.
Step 8: Building Permit Received
Getting this required permit is on our checklist. Just another To-Do that your Mitchell Homes team will handle.
Step 9: Pre-Construction Lot Meeting
The Mitchell Homes team will schedule this meeting at a time that’s convenient for you. This is an opportunity to confirm and finalize details about the location of your new home on the land that you own.
Step 10: Break Ground on Your Home
Construction on your dream home is officially underway—how exciting!
Step 11: Weekly Progress Reports from Your Construction Team
The weeks of construction are a time to truly embrace the journey of building a new home that you’ll be so proud to own. When you visit the construction site, take photos of the progress so you’ll have something to look back on. The Mitchell Home contractors appreciate your patience during construction since weather conditions and supply chain issues can sometimes result in unforeseen delays or adjustments to the schedule. Stay positive and keep the vision of your beautiful new home in mind – that’s the end result worth waiting for.
Step 12: Construction Complete
Step 13: Pre-Closing Orientation & Mortgage Closing
Closing on your new home will be seamless thanks to the exceptional behind-the-scenes prep by our Mitchell Homes team. They’ll make sure that all the required documents are assembled and ready for your signature on closing day. All you have to do is show up, sign a lot of papers, and pick up the keys to your new home.
Step 14: Move-in Day!
It’s here—the BIG DAY when you move into your brand-new one-of-a-kind home. You’ll be glad to know that this significant financial investment is well-protected because every new home that Mitchell Homes builds comes standard with a 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty.
