Q. CAN I BUILD A NEW HOME IF I HAVE HOME TO SELL?
Yes, there are a few options that can happen if you have a home to sell and would like to start building a home with us. In select product lines and communities, you are allowed to hold a contingency while building your new home. (Please consult your new home specialist and lender for qualifications on the contingency program in select neighborhoods.) Another option would be a "Buyout Program." We work with several brokers who offer these programs and will act as your listing agent in hopes to sell your home before your new home is completed. If your home does not sell by that time; the broker will purchase your home. (For more information on Buyout programs, please consult your New Home Specialist for details.)
Q. WHAT'S INCLUDED IN THE SALES PRICE?
Each of our locations have specific features that are included with the home's cost. Most costs are rolled in to the base price of the home, however many customers like to select choice locations and selections to their taste which may result in additional costs added in to the base price of the home.

Q. HOW MUCH MONEY DO I HAVE TO GIVE THE BUILDER IN ORDER TO START THE HOME PROCESS?
Unlike some custom building processes, Newmark Homes does not require a heavy "down payment" to start your home. We require earnest money to start your home (amount varies anywhere from $1,000-$2,500 depending on the location) and deposits on any "upgrades" that are added into your home. All monies deposited will be credited to you back at closing. Learn More »
Q. HOW LONG WILL THE CONSTRUCTION PROCESS TAKE?
Generally the time it takes from the time you write your contract to the time you move into your new home is 4-6 months. A factor in length of time is size of the home. Of course time may vary based on uncontrollable circumstances, but our goal is to keep our processes on track to deliver a home in a timely fashion.
Q. IS A REAL ESTATE PROFESSIONAL REQUIRED TO PURCHASE A NEW HOME?
The choice is yours on whether to use a real estate professional. However, it is not a requirement. Our online and onsite consultants are ready to assist you throughout your home search.
Q. CAN I MAKE CHANGES TO THE PLAN?
We do encourage you to make your home yours, so we offer an array of options and selections to everyone's unique taste! Although we are a production builder and do limit to approved options, we try to be as flexible as we can but are limited to not interrupting the originally approved architectural prints. We do offer a specific product line that does accommodate more customizable changes that may affect the plan. However, for all homes, we ask that you do make all of your approved selections and changes at contract and not once your home has started construction.
Q. WILL YOU INSTALL HOME BUYER SUPPLIED MATERIALS AND USE OUR PREFERRED SUPPLIERS?
Unfortunately we cannot allow outside representation to install items nor install buyer supplied materials for liability and warranty reasons.
Q. WHO DO I CONTACT IF I HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT MY HOME?
We have specialized staff members that are there to assist at different stages of the process! If your home is still under construction, your Sales Professional will take care of any of your questions or concerns that you may have during the process. Once you move into your home, you will contact one of our agents in our Customer Care department and are there to answer any questions about your new home and assist you with warranty items that may need attention.
