We put a deposit on a site in Buttonwood. When we notify them that we are ready to start building, approx. how long will it be until they start our home? Thanks!

Best answer will come from checking with your sales person. They should be able to give you the definitive answer.

Zoomie1955 Hi,

Really depends mostly on you, how soon you pay the deposit and if you really want it quick.They are willing to work with you they can build these homes pretty fast.So ask to find out when closing date could be.
Guess you are happy about making that first big decision,but it won't be the last many more to come.
Smile And Be Happy Enjoy The Ride !!!!!!!!! Mary

As soon as you give them the 20% and say go... We bought last April and when we were down in Jan. we finalized the paperwork. Before we left the office we knew exactly what date we would close.... Signed Jan. 5th will close on Mar. 18th. To bad for us we have to do so by mail. Our jobs will keep us in Virginia until June.

We wire transferred our 20% deposit on our Gardenia in Buttonwood on Sept. 16 and closed on December 3, 78 days later. The house was certainly ready a couple of weeks before that.

BTW, where in Buttonwood will you be building?

way to go-- bought a house never saw it (we did too and never regretted it).
Glad you're part of the TOTV family and looking forward to you being here.
