BUILDING PROCESS

What is the building process when you work with BEAR?

Hover over each of the steps to learn more about our Building Process:

Step 1: Financing

Not sure what you can afford? Pre-approval from one of our preferred lenders will help you figure out your options:

  • Equity in Current Home
  • Down Payment vs. Your Income etc.
  • Monthly Payment vs. Your Income etc.

Tip: Pre-approval should start 6 months to a year before you are ready to make a home purchase.

Step 2: Choose Your Homesite

Bear Homes has neighborhoods located throughout Racine & Kenosha Counties

  • Whether it’s your first home or a move-up custom home, Bear Homes builds the home you want the way you want.
  • Our sales executives will walk you through homesites.

Tip: Already have a homesite? We can accommodate to see which one of our home styles will work best.

Step 3: Choose Your Home Floor Plan

  • Choose from one of our many floor plans.
  • Customize your floor plan with our in-house design team
  • Finalize plan before design center

Tip: Get an idea ahead of time! Floor plans are available to view on our website. 

Step 4: Choose Your Interior & Exterior Finishes

Step 6 : Move In Day!
