If you have questions, comments or concerns unrelated to the actual construction of your home, they would be directed to your Sales Associate.
Q: What's the difference between being pre-qualified and pre-approved for a mortgage?
A: Pre-qualification: An informal determination by a lender or mortgage broker stating how much mortgage you can afford. You potentially could get a loan for the amount stated to you, provided all information given was accurate and true.
Pre-approval: A guarantee in writing by a lender to grant you a loan up to a specified amount. You have undergone the extensive financial background check which includes looking at your credit history, previous tax returns and verifying your employment, and the lender is willing to give you a loan. The letter is valid for approximately 60 days thereafter in most cases.
Q: How big are the lots?
A: Lot size depends on the community you are purchasing in. Check with the Sales Associate for specific lot sizes in the community of your choice.
Q: Can I build the same house as my neighbor?
A: In an effort to avoid uniformity Country Classics guidelines prohibit the building an identical house on either side or directly across from the same model.
Q: Do we have to find our own land to build on?
A: No. Country Classics provides the benefit of living in a home community. These communities are already on pre-selected lots. Talk to a Sales Associate to learn more about choosing a lot and the right community for you.
Q: When should I schedule my movers? When can I move in?
A: You can move in any time after closing. As for scheduling movers, we recommend you stay in touch with Country Classics throughout the building process so we can communicate closely. We are always accommodating and considerate of each family's unique needs around moving, and we look forward to helping you coordinate the proper dates.
