4 Reasons to Schedule a Consultation Appointment
Buying a new home is a special time and always a big decision to make. It’s emotional and life-changing, – for so many reasons. There are myriad questions and concerns when you buy a home that's not only built for your needs and lifestyle today, but in the years to come. As the experts in 55+ building in Virginia, Cornerstone Homes has found that the experience goes much more smoothly with a consultation with one of our new home sales managers. It's their job to explain the ins and outs of our process and to help put you at ease every step of the journey.
Here are some of the ways talking with one of our sales manager can help:
1. Helping You to Understand the Homebuying Process
New home buyers often feel overwhelmed with everything that the process of buying a home entails. When you sit down with one of our sales managers for a consultation, they will lay out the overall plan so that you can get an idea of what will happen. You’ll discuss what you want and need in your new home. Your sales manager will review structural and design options, and will also explain each step in detail to make sure you feel comfortable and are able to make informed decisions.
2. Guiding You Through Financing
Financing a home at this point in your life might be a bit different than the last time you did it. If you are selling your existing home, you may require less additional financing. Your sales manager will explain the types of loans that are available to you. They will also introduce you to our team of Preferred Lenders, who specialize in financing for 55+ buyers. If you do require financing, you can begin the paperwork process and get pre-approved. Assisting you in completing the loan process to get final approval on funds is one of the most important ways your sales manager can help to streamline your homebuying experience.
3. Enlightening You on the Housing Market Where You Want to Live
When purchasing a new home, the housing market in the area where you want to live can be a big deal. But for Cornerstone’s 55+ communities, our buyers are usually more concerned with the location itself: what it’s near, how easy it is to get to local shops, restaurants, etc. The areas we build in – Fredericksburg, Hampton Roads, Hanover County, – are sought-after, historic, and convenient locations in Virginia. Your sales manager can discuss the current housing market where you are hoping to buy your new home and give you an overview of what the local lifestyle is like.
4. Helping You Choose the Right Design and Floorplan for Your Lifestyle
Our unique homes are designed to make your life easier and to change with you as your life changes in the coming years. It's important to us that you have a sense of our communities before you come in for your consultation. Looking at the floorplans of our single-level, energy efficient homes is sure to get you excited about seeing them up close and personal. Your consultation may include an in-person or virtual tour of our communities. You will see specifics of different homes so you will be able to weigh the options in front of you.
As specialists with deep local roots, we have a unique understanding of what truly matters to active adults. Simply put, you want so much more than a house. Cornerstone Homes has been building great 55+ communities and delighting active adult homebuyers for over 25 years.
Our goal is simple – to enhance the lives of our homeowners and help them live healthier, more enjoyable and engaged lives. We look forward to doing the same for you.
