Homes Now has 10 simple steps for you to
follow on the road to your beautiful new home:
Loan Pre-Approval: If you will be borrowing
some of the funds for your home purchase, Homes Now
recommends you get pre-approval of your loan. This
will ensure that you know what your budget is when
you design your new home.
Preliminary Site Inspection and Home Design:
Meet with one of our home design specialists. Our
knowledgeable staff will visit your building site,
give you a tour of our model home, answer any
questions you may have and help you customize your
new home to fit your family’s tastes, needs and
Contract Signing: Once you have selected your
home and its amenities, you will sign a contract for
the purchase of your new home and the costruction
services to be provided by Homes Now.
Financing: If you will be financing all or
part of the purchase price for your new home, at the
time you sign a contract you will place a 10%
deposit with Homes Now and apply to your bank for a
loan. Your contract with Homes Now will specify that
the deposit will be returned to you if you fail to
qualify for a loan.
First Payment: After receiving approval of your
loan from the bank or upon signing a contract if no
financing is needed, you will make an initial
payment to Homes Now in an amount equal to 50% of
the total contract price. If you are financing all
or part of this transaction, the bank will advance
you money, which together with the money you are
investing and your 10% deposit will constitute the
initial 50% payment.
Home Construction and Site Preperation: Once
Homes Now has received your initial 50% payment, the
Champion factory will begin building your new home in
one of their state of the art factories. While your
home is being built, Homes Now will do the necessary
site work to prepare your property for your new
Transportation and Final Payment: Champion
constructs homes in two sections on steel frames for
easy transport. When both sections are completed,
they will be transported to your home site by the
Champion trucking fleet. Once the home reaches your
building lot you will pay Homes Now the remaining
balance of the contract price.
Placement, Attachment & Finishing: After you
have made the final construction payment, the two
sections of your home will be removed from their
steel frames and lifted onto the building pad by
Homes Now. Homes Now will then attach the two
sections of the home together, anchor them to the
piers or footings, do any necessary finishing work
and hook up the utilities.
Completion of On-Site Upgrades: After attaching
the home’s sections, Homes Now will complete any
additional on-site work you have requested, such as
building a garage or constructing usable interior
space in the area under an elevated home.

inspector has inspected your new home, you can move

home purchase as soon as possible.
