Why can't I perform any work on my own prior to closing day?
For your own safety and for quality assurance reasons, we cannot allow you to do any work in your home prior to closing day. Should you wish to perform any work on your own you must wait until after closing day. Any independent work will be removed immediately as it can interrupt the production schedule, impede the certification process, and void your warranty with CMC New Homes.
Who is responsible for setting up the utilities for my closing day?
You should contact the utility companies to transfer your services. This should be done prior to the closing day.
Why do some upgrades cost more than at the local home renovation store?
Upgrades provided CMC New Homes will be fully installed when you move in, which eliminates potential scheduling changes or the inconvenience that may result from making an independent purchase after closing. What's more, the upgrade pricing you're given at your design appointment is guaranteed until closing, and you can finance the cost of the upgrades into your loan, which reduces out-of-pocket expenses.
