Townhomes are attached homes that require minimal outdoor upkeep. Our townhomes are designed with two-story layouts, featuring an unfinished basement and two-car garage. They also provide similar upgrade options as our single-family homes.

Single-family homes are detached dwellings that offer ample private outdoor space, with an array of single-story and two-story floor plans available. You’ll also have greater location options with single-family homes.

This contract will also establish key deadlines, such as the timeline for finalizing design choices, securing financing, and closing on the home. It is important to carefully review this timeline and make note of all essential milestones to ensure a smooth home-buying experience.

Prior to commencing your home search, we advise reaching out to a lender for guidance on establishing a budget that can inform your purchasing decisions. Moreover, it is recommended that you connect with our preferred lender within three days of signing the contract, to ensure timely approval of lending, discuss rate locks, and finalize any remaining details. The relevant information for our preferred lender can be found in your purchase agreement.
