Getting Started / Our Process

Purchasing a new construction home in Lancaster and the surrounding area may seem daunting, but our EGStoltzfus home buying process is straightforward! With our new homebuilder team by your side every step of the way, it couldn’t be easier!

  1. Select A Home Plan
    Choose which new home community best suits your specific needs.
  2. Choose A Home Site
    Meet with your EGStoltzfus new home construction sales expert and select the perfect location.
  3. Secure Financing
    Once you decide on your new home community and home site contact a mortgage lender for the type of loan that best fits your needs. We don’t require a construction loan when building in one of our new home neighborhoods—all we need is your down payment with the balance due at closing!
  4. Personalize Your Home
    Your sales expert will help you select cabinets, roofing, siding, and flooring—everything you need to truly make your new home yours!
  5. Pre-Construction Meeting
    You’ll have the opportunity to meet with your new home construction leaders including the project manager and the construction superintendent. The entire process and timeline of constructing your dream home will be explained in great detail.
  6. The Building Process
    Throughout the entire building process, your EGS team is focused on quality and on-time delivery. Your onsite supervisor will manage every aspect of the job in the field, and your project manager will be working back at the EGS office to process the necessary job information and any changes you may request during construction.
  7. New Home Ownership Orientation
    About a week prior to closing, you’ll receive a comprehensive new home orientation with your sales agent and customer service superintendent. This includes an explanation of any warranty work, which the EGS customer service department can assist you with. Your homeowner’s manual will also help answer questions you may have about your new home.
  8. Closing
    It’s the day you’ve been waiting for! Once all the paperwork is signed, you’ll be handed the keys to your brand new dream home. Congratulations!
  9. One-Year Follow Up
    We like building customer relationships as much as we like building homes! That’s why EGS will contact you one year after your closing date to answer any questions or discuss any concerns that have come up over the past 12 months.
