New Construction Homes in Auburn Make Excellent First Homes.

Contrary to popular belief, new construction homes are perfect for first-time buyers and not out of reach. Harris Doyle has featured listings and pre-sale floorplans in a variety of price ranges. As a buyer, if you choose to go the pre-sale route, it puts you in control of the lot, floorplan, and design selections in your new Auburn home. This is a huge perk for buying new and one not available if you were to purchase a resale home. 

A New Home Sales Consultant will be available to help. 

When you determine a neighborhood and have the floorplans and lot in mind, Kristie will connect you with the on-site New Home Sales Consultant to start the process of neighborhood visits and completing your lot, floorplan, and design selections. Our agents have years of experience in new construction in the Auburn market and know their assigned Harris Doyle community in detail. 

Get Pre-Approved with Silverton Mortgage

There are six steps to the mortgage process: Pre-Approval, Submitting Initial Docs, Processing, Underwriting, Pre-Closing, and Closing. First and foremost, pre-approval is extremely important when deciding how much money you (the buyer) will be eligible to borrow. Harris Doyle has partnered with Silverton Mortgage, one of the nation’s fastest growing financial companies, to make it simple for our buyers. Silverton’s team of processors and underwriters work seven days a week, advise you on the home loan that fits your needs, and offer multiple types of loans. 

Start the Home Building Process

Now that your budget is set and Kristie has connected you with your New Homes Sales Consultant, the real fun begins! This is the time to decided which features are important and must-haves in your new home. How many bedrooms and bathrooms and where you want the lot to be in the new construction community.  Next up…choosing the ideal floorplan for your family’s needs. Do you want an open concept, two stories, or an abundance of natural light? Discussing your wants with the agent will help determine which floorplan suits you best. 

Don’t Forget Quick-Move-In Homes

Here at Harris Doyle, we have quick-move homes ready for new owners at all stages of the building process. These homes sit on highly desired lots throughout the new home communities, feature designer selections chosen by Harris Doyle’s Design Team, and boast the best floorplans we offer.
