Process

Working with Red Door Homes

The traditional home-buying experience involves purchasing the land and the home together. Finding the house of your dreams in the location of your dreams can seem impossible. At Red Door Homes, we are making both a reality for East Tennessee residents.

Find land

If you do not have land, we can recommend a reputable local realtor. If you have land, we will conduct a complimentary lot evaluation to ensure the plan you have chosen is compatible. After thoroughly assessing the site, we will provide a cost estimate. We go the extra mile to ensure you are making a good investment.

Sign your purchase agreement

Before construction on your home can begin, you must sign a purchase agreement that outlines the details of your home, including price. Red Door knows how important these documents are for a sale to proceed smoothly, so we write them clearly, accurately, and diligently.

With the financing in place, the selections made, and the pre-construction meeting completed, you are free to sit back, relax, and let us handle the rest.

Warranties don't sell homes – they build trust.

Red Door Homes of East Tennessee offers home owners a warranty on every home they purchase. We have a long-standing relationship with one of the largest insurance organizations in the country: Professional Warranty Service Corporation (PWC).

Home Buyer Advantages

We provide our buyers with an express, 10-year limited warranty. In the unlikely event that we cannot perform our obligations under the warranty, our insurer will be there to assume responsibility for our performance – at no cost to you. Most other insured warranty programs require a consumer deductible, requiring you to pay even if the repair covered.

  • Our insurer is the strongest in the industry
  • The warranty is transferable to new owner upon home sale
  • Underwriter Zurich North America is rated "A+" by a leading rating service
  • Includes binding arbitration to settle disputes quickly and without excessive expense

The Warranty

There are three, distinct home protection warranty periods:

Year 1: Workmanship and materials defects as defined by the warranty document.

Year 2: Major systems (exclusive of appliances and items of equipment) including wiring, piping, ductwork and specified structural elements.

(Note: The builder is responsible for making all warranted repairs in years one and two, however there is insurance, up to the original sales price of the home to make those repairs in the event the builder is unwilling or unable to perform his warranty obligations).

Years 3-10: The builder warrants the home against covered structural failures. The insurer assumes the builder's warranty obligations during this period.
