1. At this stage, Homes Direct requires a fully refundable deposit to lock in the price of the home and demonstrate your intent to move forward with the process. The money will be placed in an escrow or trust account. **AT THIS TIME HOMES DIRECT CAN NOT LOCK THE PRICE OF HOMES WITH THE HISTORIC BUILDING MATERIALS INFLATION HAPPENING RIGHT NOW**
2. Homes Direct will help arrange financing for our customers if necessary and ensure that the home selected is within the customer’s budget. Different lenders can work better for different customers based on where a home is going, what type of foundation is used, credit rating and how big of a down payment, and if permits and site prep are going to be included in the loan or not.
3. Homes Direct can also help with obtaining permits. Getting permits can vary in difficulty and expense by state and in some cases can be time consuming and frustrating.
4. The site where the home will be placed will need to be ready before the home arrives at the location. Any utilities that need to be run, any foundations that need to be built, and all requirements for obtaining the permit need to be finished before the home can be ordered from the factory.
