Grant & Co. will require a deposit paid to the builder at contract when you agree to allow Grant to build your new home. You choose the neighborhood, homesite and Grant home plan and Grant will build the home especially for you. This is called a presale. The advantage of going the presale route is that you are given the opportunity to make all selections, options and upgrades to the home.

Typically, the deposit ranges from $5,000 to $15,000 and is credited toward your required down payment at closing.
