Buying a New Home: A Step-By-Step Guide

Raise your hand if the entire home buying process overwhelms you.

We understand.

If you’re starting to look at new homes in Central Ohio, we want you to feel prepared. And what better place is there to begin than with Maronda Homes?  Buying a home, whether it’s your first or not, can seem daunting and complicated, but with the right guidance and a helpful sales consultant, you’ll be amazed at how Maronda Homes makes it easy!

Here’s an idea for what will happen:
You’ll visit one of our decorated model homes, where a Maronda Sales Consultant will be available to sit down with you and discuss your options. Depending on the areas you’re interested in, you’ll have a number of excellent communities to consider. We also have an abundance of  home designs to choose from, allowing you to find the perfect size, layout and options within your budget. Your consultant will be happy to help you get a feel for those options by showing you different homes and communities.

One important step to take near the beginning of your search for a new home is to get pre-qualified for a mortgage loan. If you’d like, your Maronda Sales Consultant can talk with you about that initially to help you get a general idea for how much you’d qualify for, and you can also talk on the phone or meet with a consultant from FBC Mortgage to discuss loan types and exact numbers. It’s simpler than you probably think, and FBC Mortgage is a wonderful resource.

Depending on what you’re looking for, you may choose to build a home on one of our available home sites, or buy one of our Move-In Ready homes that is completely finished.  Factors that may influence which of these you choose could be related to timing, style, prices, locations or availability, but luckily both are great options!

If you decide to build, you will get to choose from one of our many floorplans and communities. Once you have decided on what style and area that works best for your family then you will get to choose your colors for your new home at our newly opened Design Center.  After that, you’ll have your pre-construction meeting with one of Maronda Homes very knowledgeable production staff.  If you choose a Move-In Ready home, you’ll simply have the final walk-through. And once the financing is ready for your home, you’ll meet with the title company for Closing.

Moving into your brand new, gorgeous Maronda home will be so exciting! We’ve seen and heard how happy our home buyers are, and not just after closing—they enjoy the whole process because Maronda makes buying a home so easy!
