  8. During construction you will have a chance to perform a walkthrough with the Semler Homes Electrician to discuss location of outlets and other electrical items.

  9. You are welcome to visit the building site as much as you like but please take caution while on site as a building site can often be dangerous especially for little children, please keep a close eye on them.

  12. Semler Homes has a final inspection performed by the City and receives a Certificate of Occupancy which states that Semler Homes has satisfied all code conditions and the home is safe to occupy.

  13. The lender you are using will also come in at this time to do an appraisal and home inspection verifying that the home is up to their standards before borrowing the funds for the purchase.

  14. Finally we have a closing at a Title Company where Semler Homes transfers title of the property into your name and collects the funds from your lender. At this time you will need to bring in any additional proceeds that your lender instructs you to bring in for closing costs, pre-paids, down payment, etc. Also any additional items that you may have added during construction will be due to Semler Homes at the closing.
