Get your financial paperwork in order – Buying and building a new home also requires a bit of paperwork and to get a head start before you even begin the process it’s best to make sure you have your documents in order including pay stubs, bank account statements, W2s, investment account statements, driver’s license and credit report.

Determine how much you can spend and get preapproved for your home loan – It’s time to take a look at your capital and decide what you will be able to put down as well what you will be comfortable paying for a monthly mortgage payment based on your budget.  Once you have your documents and finances in order it’s time to get pre-approved so you know exactly how much you’ll qualify for and the price range you have to work with in building your dream Bentsen Palm home.

Find the floorplan that best meets your needs – Now that you know what your budget is and how much you can spend based on building your new home, start exploring the available Tanglewood floorplans and decide on what plan and elevation best meets your family’s needs.

Choose the ideal location in Tanglewood – Your dream home deserves a perfect location.  Visit the Tanglewood at Bentsen Palm master planned community to find the homesite that will best accommodate the floorplan you want and provide proximity to the amenities you love.

Make an Offer – Once you’ve selected your homesite and floorplan, it’s time to submit an offer and get your sales contract signed and dated.  The sales team in Tanglewood is always available to answer any questions or concerns.

Attend Walk Through, the Closing and Then It’s Time to Move In! Be sure to attend all walk-throughs to ensure your home is built to your specifications and contract. Once your new home is built, you’ll attend a closing where you’ll sign all of the final paperwork and provide your check for down payment.  You’ll then be handed the keys to your beautiful new Tanglewood home and ready to move in!
