Building Presales with Supply Chain Constraints:

Each builder is approaching the supply chain constraints differently.   Legacy Premier Homes is allowing for selections from a predetermined set of choices for both interior and exterior of homes.   In many cases, these choices are being bought in bulk and stored in warehouses.   Our approach is to start presales very quickly which requires all selections to be made at the time of contract.   Selections that need to be ordered will be once the contract is signed.  However, it is possible that a given selection may become unavailable (yes it can happen).  If it does, our designers reserve the right to substitute a similar product.  Between optimizing our build sequence and minimizing the wait on the material, it allows us to build your home in an approximately 4 to 5-month time period.   This offers significant advantages of being able to lock in your interest rate quicker, move into your home quicker, and helps avoid those nasty escalation clauses.    Likewise, as a builder, it helps us minimize risk because we are able to order material quicker and have less time for external forces to affect the supply chain.    However, if items must be substituted, both the builder and the client must be flexible and decisive in order to keep the build process on track.

Selection of Plan and Lot:

The first step is determining the plan and lot you are most interested in.   This decision goes hand in hand since certain plans are only allowed on certain lots.   Even if a plan fits, it may not be allowed because adjacent homes are the same plan.    If you choose a plan, it will show the available lots.  If you choose a lot, it will show the available plans   Go the plat page (Click to see interactive Highland Ridge Plat) or the plan page (Click for Highland Ridge Plans).  Once you have selected a lot and plan, our home designer will have to perform a detailed review to make sure the plan will fit and that the surrounding homes are not the identical plan and elevation.  Even it if is the same plan, the plan designer may be able to modify the elevation of the home to allow it to go on a lot.

Highland Ridge Phase 2 has a large number of lots that do not directly back up to another home.    Many of the lots back up to a lake, undeveloped area, or retention area.   These lots will have a premium.    The last phase of Legacy Grove will also have a large number of lots that back up to lakes or undeveloped areas.

Interior Selections Process:

Our creative team designed twelve interior collections based on current trends and popular elements.  All will complement any of our floor plans. One is sure to catch your eye and suit your unique style.  (Read More)

Exterior Selections Process:

Part of the Legacy Premier Homes homebuilding process includes making selections for brick, mortar, and vinyl colors. This can be overwhelming when trying to select options using small samples and product boards. We believe it is much easier to visualize what the home will look like if choosing exterior selections matching our completed homes. Once you enter the pre-sales process, a member of the sales team will provide a list of homes in Highland Ridge that reflect available options from which to choose.

Presale Appointment:

To start the process of building your home, schedule an appointment with a member of our sales team. This meeting will take around two hours.  This initial meeting will include a detailed walk-through of the options that are available with our homes, a detailed walkthrough of interior selections, and exterior selections.  During this meeting, the on-site salesperson will generate a worksheet. The worksheet will contain the options that you are still considering and your preferences on selections. You will have the opportunity to review the results at home and make final decisions so that you can keep the final price of the home within your budget.

Before meeting with our on-site salesperson:

  • Be serious about building with Legacy Premier Homes, Inc. Because of the time involved on everyone’s part, a meeting should not be scheduled until you are ready to move forward.
  • Contact a lender so you know what budget you are working with. We recommend using one of our approved lenders – see closing cost paid by builder for more details on what we pay when using an approved lender.
  • Select a plan and lot and have an idea of what options you would like. The more you understand the options you want, the quicker the process.
  • Review the interior and exterior selection pages to determine your preferences.
  • Prioritize the additional features that are important to you.
