Meet One of Our Virtual Homebuyers!
April 30, 2020
Homebuying has gone virtual! There’s (still) no place like a McKee Builders home, and most importantly, you don’t have to worry about putting your dreams on hold. Joyce Ferguson, one of our virtual homebuyers, just bought her McKee Builders home completely online, and is here to give you a behind-the-scenes look into her unique process. Want to find your home from the comfort of your couch too? This easy option is now a reality!
How did you find Whispering Woods?
I started the process last November when my great grandson said he wanted me to move closer to the family. I went online to do some research, and went through four or five communities before finding Whispering Woods, and it had everything we were looking for.
There are several reasons, but mostly because it’s five minutes away from my family, and close to better medical facilities.
Why McKee Builders?
Their great reputation drew me in and their ability to customize and be flexible with my timeline made the choice easy. I chose to build a new home, so my January 2021 start date is giving me enough time to list my current home and sort through it to figure out what I can get rid of.
What was your virtual home buying process like?
I’m a person who knows what I want, and I saw exactly what I was hoping for and bought it. If you trust the quality, then why not? Figuring out my budget and working out what worked within my means was an easy process. Asking the right questions is crucial for a successful virtual home buying experience. You also have to know what you want and trust your builder.
How was your experience working with your sales team member?
Terry Burke was delightful to work with! I was able to get answers to my questions right away.
What did you like most about the virtual process?
I enjoyed how easy it was to get responses to our questions, as well as the ability to fully customize our new home. I really appreciated the builder’s flexibility in accommodating our relocating schedule.
Which floor plan do you live in? What do you love most and what would you change if you could?
We chose the Easton! We love the curb appeal, the courtyard, and the iron gate, especially because we love to sit outside. The open layout is incredible, and we were able to visualize what we want on each wall and how our furniture will fit. We were also able to make changes to the interior, including replacing linoleum with ceramic tile.
Did McKee give you enough choices to make your new home reflect your lifestyle?
Absolutely. I didn’t want the laundry room to have a closet, so I was able to get a custom-designed pantry in there. I was also able to take out the fireplace, and add a morning room/sunroom to make an office.
What are you most looking forward to in your new home and community?
Location, location, location. Above all else, I’m close to my family and better medical facilities. Being surrounded by trees is also important to me.
Would you recommend McKee and this buying process to friends and family?
Definitely. Although it would’ve been nice to access the design center, I was still very comfortable selecting everything online. There was no hesitation in signing an agreement the same day.
