Yingst Homes Building Steps
Yingst Homes understands that building or buying a home is one of the biggest decisions and investments you will ever make. This doesn't mean that the process has to be intimidating. Our Home Building Steps guide makes the process simple-from the birth of your very first idea to the day you move in.

  1. Meet with Yingst Homes' sales manager to discuss a home design, budget considerations and the location of your new home.
  2. Establish details relevant to your proposed plan and arrive at an estimated price.
  3. The final drawing is complete, a final price is established, and the contract signed.
  4. The customer secures financing. Yingst Homes applies for the building permit.
  5. Meet with the Yingst Homes design coordinator to review construction specifications and make selections for the interior and exterior of your home.
  6. Meet with the builder at your lot to discuss exact house placement and other site- specific considerations. Construction begins.
  7. Framing is completed. Walkthroughs for electric, plumbing and HVAC are completed.
  8. Construction proceeds to completion. Pre-settlement is scheduled and performed.
  9. Final settlement and move in. The sales manager presents the Yingst Homes' warranty and service policy to you at settlement. Our goal is that all your expectations are met and your questions answered.
By offering such individualized consultations, as well as the highest quality materials and excellent craftsmanship, Yingst Homes assures that your new home will reflect your personal taste and sense of style, while meeting your budget and saving you valuable time.
