We believe value is created through innovation, personalization and excellent craftsmanship. Our goal is to present you with a completed home that you will be proud to show to your friends and family. Each of our plans can be personalized, resulting in a truly distinctive space suited for your lifestyle. You’ll start with our plans, and then add your custom ideas. Our architectural design team will incorporate your ideas into the plan to ensure they function properly and present you with a Personalized Floor Plan, something uniquely yours.
Step 1: After the Purchase with Customizing Opportunities
Once you’ve signed your agreement, your sales manager will offer you the option of architectural revisions to the selected floor plan. Your sales manager will mark-up the floor plan with your requested changes and submit it to our architectural design team for authorization of changes. Once that is returned, you’ll have the opportunity to accept the changes and submit for pricing.
After finalizing your structural changes and accepting pricing, you are ready to schedule your design appointment.. These appointments are available Tuesday through Friday beginning at 9 a.m., 11 a.m. or 1 p.m. You will be allotted up to two complementary 4-hour design appointments with one of our talented design team members, where they will walk you through all the available finishes. You’ll also get an opportunity to meet with one of our low voltage professionals. Prior to your design appointment, we highly recommend attending a complementary Design Preview Session.
Our Design Studio is open for Preview Sessions every Monday 11 a.m. – 7 p.m. No appointment is needed.
If you haven’t already, now is the time to get your mortgage pre-approval. This is required within the first 21 days after signing your purchase agreement, with final approval required by day 45.
From here, your purchase agreement and final selections will go to our architectural department where custom plans will be created, and our trade partners will be notified of all your options and selections.
Step 2: Pre-Construction Meeting
You’ll receive a call when your building superintendent is ready to schedule your pre-construction meeting. This meeting is required and will take place at our Design Studio. During this meeting you’ll meet your Superintendent, review your plat plan, blueprints, design selections and the construction process with your builder.
Pre-construction meetings are held Monday through Friday at 9 a.m. or 1 p.m. and held at our Design Studio.
Step 3: Pre-Drywall Meeting
Your building superintendent will contact you to schedule your pre-drywall meeting. This takes place prior to drywall installation and gives you and your builder the opportunity to review locations for plumbing, electrical, HVAC and low voltage.
Pre-drywall meetings are scheduled Monday-Friday at 9 a.m. and held at your new home site.
Step 4: Countertops and Landscaping
You will be contacted by a representative from both our trade partners. The counter top meeting gives you an opportunity to select your granite slab. Viera Builders knows and understands how important landscaping is for your home. You will have the opportunity to meet with your landscape representative and make selections and placement best suited for our Florida climate.
Please note our counter top slab selection meetings are held in Orlando.
Step 5: New Home Orientation and Closing Letter
One of our closing coordinators will notify you via email (approximately 6-8 weeks prior to the completion of your home) to announce the dates of your New Home Orientation and Closing Date.
These meetings are mandatory and typically held 8 to 10 business days apart. The New Home Orientation is an introduction to your new home. During this important meeting, your superintendent will review the condition, use and maintenance of your new home.
Please allow 3 hours for this meeting, which is scheduled weekdays only, Monday through Friday beginning at 9 a.m. or 1 p.m.
Step 6: Final Walk, Closing and Introduction to Customer Service
Your final walk through is scheduled one hour prior to your closing and lasts 30 to 45 minutes.
During this walk, your superintendent will review any outstanding items from your New Home Orientation. You’ll be introduced to a member of our customer service team who will be present to transition your home from the construction department to the customer service department.
Viera Builders Warranty Program offers you a two-year warranty against defects in material and workmanship (non-transferable). In addition, Viera Builders will supply you at the time of closing, a homeowner's structural ten-year limited warranty provided by a third-party insurer.
