    Priority Registration

    Getting on the priority list is the first step in the process of buying a new construction home. Even if you haven’t 100% made up your mind that Everly is the one, it’s a good idea to join the interest list securing your place in line, giving you the option to purchase.  The earlier you sign-up and are pre-approved (more about the pre-approval process below) the better opportunity you’ll have to get the location and plan that works best for you.

    Brookfield Residential’s Sales Procedure

    Brookfield has a 4 step sales procedure.  Steps 1 and 2 need to be complete to secure your place on the Priority List.  Then start the process in step 3 with Wells Fargo to participate in the upcoming sales releases.

    • Step 1 – Provide your contact information
    • Step 2 – There will be a few questions about your current home, income and if you’ll be taking out a loan for this purchase.
    • Step 3 – A link will be provided to direct you to the preferred lender.  Contact the lender to get this process started prior to the first release of homes for sale.
    • Step 4 – The lender will ask you to provide the following documentation.
      • Most recent pay stubs for the last 30 days
      • W2 Forms for the last two years
      • Federal Tax Returns (all pages and schedules) for the last two years
      • Most recent two months Bank statements checking/savings to verify your down payment
      • Most recent Quarterly Retirement account statement and/or 401k
      • If you are paying all cash, bank statement to verify funds

    Getting Pre-approved for New Construction

    First, you should know you have the ability to pick the lender of your choice for the actual purchase.  Brookfield does ask that you get pre-approved by their preferred lender prior to the phase release that you are interested in (start this process as soon as you have time).  If you like the preferred lender and the rates are competitive there may also be perks available for working with them.   Builders sometimes offer incentives to buyers if they use the preferred lender.

    Studio 3 at Playa Vista

    The Everly sales office is now open.  Studio 3 at Playa Vista is the sales office for all three new single family home developments: Everly, Marlowe and Jewel.  It also the sales center for Cleo and Mason, two new condo developments for sale in Playa Vista Phase II. You’ll want to meet your Realtor at Studio 3 before taking the model home tour.  On your first visit it’s important to bring your real estate agent if you would like to have representation throughout the process.

    Having a professional on your side can help you save money, time and energy.  Most builders cooperate with agents by offering to pay a referral commission to the agent for representing you.
