Looking for a new home but don't know where to start? Check out our checklist with info to help you each step of the way!

At Clayton, we want to help you feel confident about your home purchase and know what to expect along the way. While no two experiences will be exactly the same, think of this post as a helpful guide to all of the important parts of your manufactured and modular home buying journey. So, let’s jump right in and take a look at key milestones at each point!

Finding Your Floor Plan: We have many ways you can see manufactured and modular home models from Clayton that fit your budget and have the features you’re looking for!

Choosing a Lender and Finalizing Your Purchase: The exact order of these next steps can vary based on your individual experience and needs, but once you’ve decided on a home model and are ready to purchase it, here is typically what happens.

1. You will choose your final floor plan. The home center will send that information to the Clayton building facility so they can create the build quote for the home's price.

2. You will finalize the home's location.

3. You will select a lender and complete the loan application process.

4. Once you receive the build quote and loan approval, you will discuss the final home purchase price.

5. Finally, the lender will arrange to complete the closing and your new home financing process will be complete.

Home Building and Preparing Your Land: Your home consultant will now submit your order to the facility that will be building your home. This is a great time to check out our blog to learn more about the home building brands we partner with and our streamlined construction process.

Home Delivery and Move-in Day: Once your home is built and the land is ready, the home will be transported to the site.

We hope this post has been a helpful overview of what to expect during the manufactured and modular home buying process! And if you’re ready to take that next step toward homeownership, you can contact a home center near you for more information and start browsing home models on our website today.
