What is the Process to Buy a New Home?
A combined Non-Binding Reservation & Purchase Agreement will be completed with an initial reservation deposit of $2,500 which will start a 15-day period for you to review the Public Offering Statement (and have an attorney review if you so choose). The $2,500 is fully refundable during this 15 day period. At the end of the 15 days you will provide an additional check to bring your deposit to 10% of the purchase price at which point the agreement becomes binding.
