Frequently Asked Questions
The primary reasons to purchase a new home are the economic benefits. New construction provides the energy savings and comfort of the most current technology and products. Your baths, kitchen, basement, and lifestyle are built for your current needs, not yesterday’s.
A new purchase provides what you want and need at a known fixed cost. No improvements or unexpected maintenance should be necessary. Best of all, you’ll be able to enjoy your investment knowing that it should increase in value on a predictable timeline.
Rockford Homes has been in business for 25 years in the Columbus area. Rockford is a family-owned company who builds homes for families, not stockholders. Our bankers tell us that we are among the top private homebuilders in the Midwest in terms of operations and financial strength. What that means to you is that Rockford Homes is a builder who will be there for you throughout the building process and beyond. In fact, approximately one third of our business comes from repeat and referred customers.
On average, the building process takes about 180 days from contract to completion. The actual build time is approximately 120 days. The additional 60 days is needed for loan approval, structural selections, color selections and obtaining a building permit. Your Rockford construction supervisor will keep you updated on the progress of your home at every phase.
If you need to move in quickly but still want a new home, Rockford Homes offers ready-to-move-in inventory homes in nearly every community. Often, you can choose your colors and add your finishing touches. To see the inventory homes currently available, click on the Inventory Homes button and select the area you’re most interested in.
Every Rockford home is priced with the lot and standard landscaping included. All you have to do is move in and enjoy.
If you already own a lot, Rockford Homes will consider building your home under certain conditions. First, the lot must be located near one of our communities. Second, we must have the professional staff available to ensure the quality construction of your new home. If you see a floor plan on this website that you’d like us to build on your lot, simply contact us and provide a detailed map of your home site. We will verify the availability of construction personnel and the acceptability of the lot location and respond to you promptly.
Absolutely. In fact, we consider our flexibility in making changes to be one of our greatest advantages in achieving the high levels of customer satisfaction, repeat business and client referrals Rockford is known for. What we cannot do is completely redesign the plan or incur major structural expense. Bumping out walls, expanding the garage, adding windows, changing interior/exterior details—these are just a few examples of the of changes you are welcome to make to your Rockford Home. We are happy to help with the minor adjustments that make our house, your home.
Every Rockford single family home features a standard partial basement at no extra charge. Our condominiums vary by design; some have basements, others do not.
Yes you can buy a home with no down payment. FHA offers a down payment assistance program with 30 year fixed rates. This no gimmick, no money down program is approved by the Federal Housing Administration and is designed for people who do not have funds available for down payment. The interest rates are low and you can borrow up to $341,250. We will be glad to refer you to one of our several preferred lenders who can assist you in one of their below market interest rate, zero down loans.
Having a home to sell should NOT delay your decision to invest in a new home. Rockford has developed different programs to address this common situation. These programs allow you to purchase at current pricing and discounts while you are selling your existing home. Ask your Rockford home consultant for details.
