Buying your first home

Buying your first home? Here’s what to expect

As a trusted home builder in Colorado Springs for over 20 years, we know a thing or two about buying your first home! Here’s the process that our home buyers can expect when buying a new Challenger home in any of our communities:


1. Pick your home

First, you need to find a Challenger home that fits your wants needs and budget. Luckily, we have a number of new home communities across Colorado Springs and Northern Colorado.

2. Loan Pre-Approval

Next, you’ll need to get pre-approved by the Loan Consultant of your choice. Our preferred lender is PenTrust Mortgage.

3.  Weekly Sales Communication

Your Sales Associate will now start checking in with you once a week with any updates and to answer any questions you may have.

4.  Building Permits

We’ll make sure all permits are pulled correctly and on time so we can start building!

5. Design Consultation

Now it’s time to visit our Design Studio so you can truly make your Challenger home your own.

6. Break Ground

It’s official! Your new Challenger home is now underway.

7. Pre-construction Meeting

A meeting with your superintendent to review all of your selections and answer any questions you may have.

8. Start Frame and Weekly Construction Communication

Next, construction is really taking off! After framing starts, you’ll also have weekly construction communication.

9. 1st Quality Assurance Inspection

We want to make sure you’re happy every step of the way, which is why we perform three quality assurance inspections on your home.

10. Pre-drywall Construction Walk

This walk-through of your home will allow you to see “what’s behind the walls” before the drywall goes up.

11. Finishes Begin

The final details of your home are being put into place!

12. 2nd Quality Assurance Inspection

Now that finishes have been installed, we want to perform the next quality assurance inspection.

13. New Home Orientation

Approximately one week prior to closing we’ll walk you through all of the features and systems of your new home. We will also go over operational and maintenance tips. This walk-through will ensure your satisfaction with the condition of your home.

14. 3rd Quality Assurance Inspection

The third and final quality assurance inspection is now performed.

15. Final Home Sign Off

Finally, it’s time to close on your new Challenger home! Once all steps have been completed for a successful closing as set forth in the Purchase Agreement, the keys to your new home are yours.

After Closing

Even after you’ve closed on your new home, we want to make sure you’re satisfied! We’ll provide a new home courtesy visit to make sure. We also stand behind our work, offering a 1-year limited warranty period to all new homebuyers. Finally, we’ll send out a third-party survey so you can tell us how we did! If you’re happy with our process, you can even earn $1000 for each friend you refer.
