Are you considering buying a MainVue home? Feel confident going into the home buying process by being well-informed and prepared before beginning by reading our step-by-step process! Buying a new home in Washington can be an exciting and rewarding experience if you partner with the right home builder and lender. At MainVue Homes, we take great pride in guiding you through the new home buying process, from choosing the right new home community and floor plan to learning about the luxury inclusions that come standard in every MainVue Home, selecting a designer Color Scheme, learning about our modern facades and designer features and more!

Getting Started:

Buying a MainVue Home is a great choice for those looking for a new luxury home with modern designs and high-quality construction. A common concern is whether to buy a house now or wait, regardless of where you want to live. Hesitations in buying a home are often rooted in mortgage rates or economic uncertainty, but buying a home is an exciting process, one that Mainvue helps make effortless and stress-free. If you're ready to find your dream home, then let’s explore what MainVue can offer for your new home.

Here are the steps you can expect when buying a MainVue Home:

  1. Determine Your Why for Buying:

    Now that you’ve decided to embark on buying a new home, it’s important to determine your why for buying. Are you looking for a new home because your family is relocating? Looking to live in a golf course community, or move into your retirement home? What about starting a family or looking to move into a better school district? Your why will impact where you look, where you buy, and ultimately, where you’ll be happiest living.

  2. Determine Your Budget:

    Once you've determined why you're looking to buy, deciding how much you can afford to spend is vital. Meet with a financing representative to determine your price point and understand how much you are comfortable with for monthly mortgage payments. Once you know your budget, it's time to get pre-approved for a mortgage, then start looking for your new home!

    At Mainvue, we understand the importance of dedicated home mortgage lenders. That is why we have worked to maintain a longstanding relationship with our approved lender to ensure a comfortable and trusting financing experience. Equipped with relevant industry knowledge, our preferred lender is here to help you on your mortgage and homebuying journey.

  3. Determine Your Moving Timeline:

    Knowing your moving timeline is essential to the home-buying process and can impact the availability of homes. Are you looking for a Move-In Ready Home or would you prefer to build? Determining this early in your home-buying process ensures that you have ample time to tour multiple MainVue model homes and communities.

  4. Move-In Ready Homes vs Build Lots:

    Another primary decision is whether to select a home that has already started construction or build from the ground up. A build lot is an available lot in a community where you can choose your lot, home design, and build your home. Versus an Available home is a home on a lot that has already been planned for construction. If you decide to build, your first step is finding a community that offers Build Lots. Once you find an available community and lot, you will work with a MainVue Sales Consultant to select an available home design on that lot, choose your interior color scheme, review the modern façade, and finalize any interior options. If you decide to build, we highly recommend you tour multiple model homes to different home designs, color schemes, and options.

  5. Research MainVue Communities - Select Your Ideal Location:

    With your budget, pre-approval in hand, and decision to build or buy an available home, it's time to start looking at homes and selecting your ideal location. MainVue’s online “Find A Home” tool assists you in your home search process and allows you to discover different communities, home designs, and move-in ready homes, and all of MainVue’s homes for sale.

  6. Tour MainVue Model Homes on Display - See the MainVue Difference:

    You can visit the World of Model Homes or tour virtually to experience the 13 model homes on display in Kent, WA. These model homes feature a collection of 13 MainVue’s modern home designs, all finished with the luxury inclusions that come standard in every home. Other touring options are touring specific communities, or models and lots. You can get answers to any questions about the home-buying process from our knowledgeable staff and find your dream home in one of our beautiful communities.

  7. Work Directly with MainVue’s Team:

    Once you have narrowed in on a community and home, the MainVue team is here to help. Our team fosters professional and engaging relationships with customers to ensure the home-buying experience is seamless and enjoyable. If you prefer to work with your own Real Estate Agent, Mainvue happily can accommodate you and make it easy to schedule a tour.

    A knowledgeable and experienced real estate agent can help you navigate the home-buying process and find the right home for your needs and budget. If choosing someone outside of MainVue, look for an agent familiar with the Washington State real estate market who has a proven track record of helping buyers find their dream homes.

  8. Go Under Contract, put down earnest money:

    Following a collection of decisions in your home-buying process, you should have a complete image of what and where your MainVue home will look like and be. Now it’s time to go under contract, and put down earnest money, otherwise known as a good faith deposit to show that you’re serious about purchasing.

  9. Get the keys and move in:

    Congratulations, you're a MainVue homeowner! It's time to pack up your belongings and move into your MainVue home. Be sure to arrange for utilities, internet, and other services beforehand so you can settle in without any hiccups. Be sure to download the MainVue Homeowner Guide for expert tips on keeping your home in the best condition possible.

  10. Join the MainVue community!:

    Now that you’re moved in, it’s the perfect opportunity to find ways to join your MainVue Homes community. Meet your neighbors and familiarize yourself with your new community. Each MainVue community is unique in their offerings, lifestyle accommodations, and location, giving customers the opportunity to find a community that fits their needs best.
