Home Building... Simplified

You're 10 Simple Steps From Your New Home

If someone tells you building a house is a pain in the rear, they aren't a Red Door customer.

This is your new home -- this should be fun! Our 10 simple steps to your Dream Home make home building simple and painless, so you can relax and enjoy the wonderful journey.

1. VISIT A RED DOOR LOCATION

If everything you see on our website seems just too good to be true, do yourself a favor and come see our New Home Center in Conroe, TX. Set up your one on one consultation by calling ahead and scheduling an appointment.

2. PICK YOUR DREAM HOME & PERSONALIZE IT

It's only STEP 2 and things are already getting seriously fun! 
We give you the ability to make any of these homes uniquely yours. Two unique Home Collections to fit YOUR budget and lifestyle.

 Once you choose your Dream Home, you can select one, of at least three, available exterior looks for your new home. From there you can explore the personalization choices available to meet your needs and desires.

3. REVIEW YOUR FREE INVESTMENT SNAPSHOT

Your friendly Red Door Dream Home Consultant will present a FREEcomprehensive Investment Snapshot for your perfect home. Then you will will sit down together, talk over your plan, and if necessary, tweak some things to make sure we're matching up with your budget. 

This is usually when our customers' eyes get really big and many decide to add customizations, or even choose a larger home plan, because the investment amount is much lower than expected.

4. IDENTIFY & EVALUATE YOUR LAND

If you don't have land, we can help you find the perfect homesite in your desired area. Once you have land we offer a FREE Lot Evaluation that enables us to:

  • Confirm your selected home will work on your lot
  • Assess any foundation needs your home placement may require
  • Gather preliminary information about site preparation and utility costs to include in your Investment Snapshot.

5. Secure Your Financing

Okay, even though our homes are amazingly affordable, you're probably still going to need to borrow some moolah to pay for it. Red Door Homes works closely with a lot of great mortgage lenders, banks and credit unions as well as farm credit organizations. Your ideal loan type may vary depending on your property and some other factors. If you'd like our help, we're happy to guide you to a financing solution that fits nicely with your individual needs and goals

6. CLOSE YOUR CONSTRUCTION LOAN

Okay... as soon as your financing is secured, your construction loan will close--and that triggers the Pre-Construction phase. Wow, that step was easy!

7. ATTEND YOUR PRE-CONSTRUCTION MEETING

Keeping you well informed throughout the entire building process is just the Red Door way. In your pre-construction meeting you will meet with a Red Door Construction Manager and your personally-assigned Builder to:

  • Make sure everyone is starting on the same page and working toward the same vision
  • Review your project and discuss any outstanding issues
  • Learn what to expect during construction

We're going to make sure all of you questions are answered - even the questions you don't ask.

9. ENJOY YOUR NEW HOME ORIENTATION

Once your home is complete, our team will complete a thorough Internal Delivery Review to ensure your home is 100% ready for you. Your New Home Orientation will be scheduled 4-5 business days prior to move-in. We'll present your new home and introduce you to the features, show you how they operate and make sure expectations are met.
