Raise your hand if the entire home buying process overwhelms you.

We understand.
If you’re starting to look at new homes in Utah, we want you to feel prepared. And what better place is there to begin than with Utah’s Number One Homebuilder, Ivory Homes?  Buying a home, whether it’s your first or not, can seem daunting and complicated, but with the right guidance and a helpful sales consultant, you’ll be amazed at how Ivory makes it easy!

Here’s an idea for what will happen: 
You’ll visit one of our decorated model homes, where an Ivory Sales Consultant will be available to sit down with you and discuss your options. Depending on the areas you’re interested in, you’ll have a number of excellent communities to consider. We also have an abundance of elegant home designs to choose from, allowing you to find the perfect size, layout and options within your budget. Your consultant will be happy to help you get a feel for those options by showing you different homes and communities.

One important step to take near the beginning of your search for a new home is to get pre-qualified for a mortgage loan. If you’d like, your Ivory Sales Consultant can talk with you about that initially to help you get a general idea for how much you’d qualify for, and you can also talk on the phone or meet with a consultant from Ivory Mortgage to discuss loan types and exact numbers. It’s simpler than you probably think, and Ivory Mortgage is a wonderful resource.

Depending on what you’re looking for, you may choose to build a home on one of our available home sites, or buy one of our “Quick Move-in homes” that is either already under construction or completely finished.  Factors that may influence which of these you choose could be related to timing, style, prices, locations or availability, but luckily both are great options!

If you decide to build, you get to meet at the Design Center with one of our exceptional Design Consultants to pick out the colors and options for your home. They will make it simple and guide you completely through those decisions.  After that, you’ll have your pre-construction meeting with one of Ivory’s expert architects to review the plans for your new home and make sure it’s exactly what you want. You’ll be able to see the home as it’s being built and have some “walk-through’s” before the final walk-through. If you choose a Quick Move-in home, you’ll simply have the final walk-through when it’s complete. And once the financing is ready for your home, you’ll meet with the title company for Closing.

Moving into your brand new, gorgeous Ivory home will be so exciting! We’ve seen and heard how happy our home buyers are, and not just after closing—they enjoy the whole process because Ivory makes buying a home so easy!
