GET AN ANSWER:

What are my responsibilities as far as making decisions?

You will be provided with deadlines for certain decisions. By meeting these deadlines, you help to ensure that we meet your closing date.  Please come to the Design Center ready to make decisions.

What’s the best way to prepare for my design appointment?

Our Welcome video gives a great explanation of how best to get prepared for making the dozens of decisions we’ll be going over during our meeting.

What options are available to me?

There are many ways to customize your home; i.e. flooring, cabinetry, and plumbing fixtures. We will review all options that are included with your home during our design center meeting.  Please feel free to bring in a list of your ideas.  Review the Options List for your neighborhood to get an idea of what, if anything, you may like to select for your home. Please keep in mind that because we are semi-custom/production home builders we may not be able to fulfill all requests.

How much do the options cost?

We do have a list of some of our most popular options already priced for your neighborhood. Your agent should be able to provide you with a copy of the options list for your review.  Requests made that are not on our options list, if available, must be quoted by our estimating department.  Flooring changes are some of the more common items that must be quoted. Please keep in mind that because we are semi-custom/production we may not be able to fulfill all requests.

Are there deadlines for making changes?

Yes.  We aren’t able to take framing, electrical, or plumbing changes after framing has begun.  We aren’t able to take any changes after sheetrock has begun.  If you are placing an offer on a home after sheetrock has begun, options requested should be included on your purchase offer.  These deadlines allow the builders to concentrate completing your home and meeting your closing date.

What do I do if I want to change one of my selections?

Any changes that you need to make after your initial decorating appointment must be submitted in writing. This helps to eliminate misunderstandings and errors.  Email is the easiest way to accomplish this, but faxes or notes dropped off at the office also work. If you need access to the Design Center for these changes, another appointment must be scheduled with the staff.

What is a change order?

A change order is a form listing changes that you’re interested in making to your home. These will include items that have a different price than the items that are included with your home, or if you’ve already made your decorative selections, include items that are different than your original selections.  The form will have a deadline date for payment, if any, at the bottom.  The signed change order should be turned in to the office along with any payment due.  Items that you don’t wish to have completed should be struck through on your signed copy.  If you choose to mail in your change order, it should be mailed to:

 

Bill Beazley Homes, Inc.

7009 Evans Town Center Blvd

Evans, GA 30809

What should I bring to my design appointment?

Items that you know you’ll be using in the new home like sofa arm covers, pictures, and pillows are helpful when choosing paint and flooring.

Who should come to the design appointment?

While children are welcome, we have found that concentrating on the many decisions that need to be made during your appointment is easier if arrangements are made for child care.

Can you install things that I purchase on my own?

We cannot be responsible for items you have purchased independently of our vendors. In order to ensure that our construction schedule is maintained and that we are able to warrant everything in your home, we are only able to use our specified vendors.

What if I don’t like something once it is installed?

Usually our construction schedule does not allow time for items to be changed once they have been installed. It is for this reason that we ask that you make your selections carefully and deliberately.

Will I be able to close on time if I request special options?

Sometimes the changes that you make may necessitate that your closing date be moved. Delays in closing will be at a cost of $35 a day to the Buyer and closing extensions are generally extended a minimum of one week. If this is the case, it will be noted on your change order. Extension fees must be paid in full upon acceptance of the change order.

Do you take the cost of the included feature into account when pricing an optional feature?

Yes.  The price for the included feature is deducted from the price extended to you on your change order.  This also means if you choose an option that is less expensive than the included feature that we extend that credit to you to apply towards another option.

If the change requested is for an item already ordered or installed, the cost of the included feature is not deducted from the cost of the option.

Can I make changes to my home myself, before closing?

Due to safety concerns and liability reasons, changes home buyers would like to make themselves are best made after closing.

Can I schedule the design center before my contract is finished?

While we aren’t able to make a design appointment until your contract is final, we do offer tours that discuss the building process and what to expect. We can also answer specific questions during that time.  Please keep in mind that we do not have access to options pricing and must reserve making actual selections for after your contract is final.
