Build Process

Riverwood Homes knows that the home buying process can be overwhelming and stressful. We try to simplify this process and maintain communication from start to finish.

Initial Search

The first step toward purchasing a Riverwood Home is determining your budget and obtaining pre-qualification from a preferred lender. We work closely with regarded lenders such as Guild Mortgage, HomeStreet Bank, Banner Bank, and Bank of Eastern Oregon.

Whether it is a whole ZIP code or just a specific neighborhood, your next step is to pick out your preferred search area. Our community map helps with this, allowing you to visualize where we are currently building and to see if those locations are in your preferred area. 

After determining your desired area, you will be ready to decide whether a move-in ready home or a build-to-order home will be right for you. Our broad range of floor plans and our design flexibility allow us to meet your housing needs, such as adding a daylight basement or providing handicap accessibility throughout your home.

Contact a Sales Representative

Meeting with one of our realtors allows them to provide you with the information you need to finalize your decision. Our realtors can walk you through one of our completed homes and answer any questions you may have. The listing agent can provide pricing and explain any of the home's included features. Riverwood strives to provide a simple, transparent pricing system to all of our customers to make selection simple.  

Our selection packages range from Bronze, Silver, and Gold for every floor plan and pricing is all inclusive, so there aren’t any surprises. If you wish to deviate from the packages and customize even further, Riverwood is more than happy to accommodate your wishes. 

After any and all questions have been answered you are welcome to submit an offer, request modifications, and/or schedule a meeting to learn more.    

 

Pre-Construction

Once under contract and earnest money has been collected, you will have the opportunity to meet with our in-house draftsman for any modifications before signing off on the approved plans.

After final approval, an application for a building permit will be submitted to the proper authorities for review. While we wait for approval, we often encourage our customers to use this time to make product selections.

These would include cabinet color and style, counter top material and color, flooring selections, etc., as well as any special instructions or upgrades. This allows us to continue forward immediately after receipt of the building permits.

Construction Period

Our construction kick-off is held before we receive the building permit and begin actual construction. This meeting consists of a review of the construction plans, material selections, and any special instructions that will be implemented during construction. We do this to ensure everything is correct and accounted for up front.

 

 

Closing

After your new home is constructed, we perform a rigorous quality inspection before inviting you, the new owner, to walk through the house and inspect the craftsmanship. Riverwood will then complete any remaining touch-ups and will provide you with detailed instructions on how to best care for your new home.   

Now this is the really exciting part! You are ready to sign your closing documents and take ownership of your new home! Our preferred title closing partners are: NexTitle, Cascade Title, and Mid-Columbia Title. Our title partners share our values for quality and customer service, so you can rest assured that there won't be any surprises.  

We will take care of you after your move-in too! Our warranty covers any defects, up to a year after closing, to put you at ease and let you enjoy your new home.
