The Showcase Builders are very familiar with the covenants of the community and can make the homebuilding process easier. Plans must be approved prior to construction commencement.
Q: How do I obtain a plat with available homesites?
A: This is one of the most common questions we get. Searching for the right piece of land can be overwhelming. We usually have several dozen parcels available spread over hundreds of acres. People sometimes get frustrated because we don't just have a sheet of paper with lot numbers and prices listed on it. The reason for this is that we are a full service land company. We offer assistance through the entire process, from selecting the right lot to finding the best loan and on to choosing a builder you can work with when you are ready. Any developer who doesn't require a professional to accompany you when searching for the right lot is doing you a disservice. Our representatives are trained to know each lot and how to help find what a customer wants even when they may not know coming in. We spend countless hours learning the physical features of each lot so that when you arrive we can reduce the time and effort you have to apply. There can be features on a lot that don't show up on a plat that buyers should know about, that's where having a professional on hand is vital.
Q: Do you have established lenders?
A: We have great relationships with several banks. Most of the lenders we recommend have special rates for Southerland Communities as an approved developer. You are always welcome to use your own bank if you prefer, but the lenders who are familiar with Southerland will probably have a better offer. Most of the lenders we work with most don't charge points or fees.
Q: How do I reach the Chamber of Commerce?
