Building a new homes in an exciting process, and building a new home on your own land adds an extra layer of excitement! Our Anywhere Lombardo team’s main goal is to make the build process as enjoyable and stress-free as possible for our new homeowners. Our experienced sales managers and construction coordinators will help guide you to create a home you’ll love to live in now and for years to come.
We often get the same questions from new homeowners: What goes into building a home on your own land? As you can imagine, much of the process is the same as building a Lombardo home within a Lombardo community, with some notable differences. Below is the detailed process we will follow to build your new Lombardo home. Contact our team to learn more about building on your own land in the greater St. Louis area!
Do you own property? If you do, you’re ready to move to Step 2! If you’re still looking for the perfect spot to build your Anywhere Lombardo home, let us know! We can provide you with a real estate agent’s information who will help you find the homesite of your dreams.
Set up a Discovery Event™ meeting and price out appointment. Once that is completed, we will meet you at your property to evaluate it on site. You will meet the construction coordinator at this time.
We require a $5,000 check for due diligence. This fee goes toward the true cost of collecting lot-specific information such as the boundary survey, topography, test pits, environmental studies, and more. The remainder of the deposit is returned to you or is applied toward the price of the home. Depending on the municipality and HOA restrictions, this process can take 3-8 weeks.
After due diligence is complete, you will meet again with the custom sales consultant to review your home pricing and start the custom change process. Use our tools to help make your dream a reality! Part of our process is capturing all the modifications and additions upfront and not throughout the build, allowing us to give you true pricing instead of an estimate.
During the due diligence and custom pricing phase, we ask that you are in contact with a lender that can provide a construction loan to verify that you are eligible the loan. If you are a cash buyer, we need proof of funds.
Once the due diligence numbers are all gathered, and your home is priced, we will write a contract.
