Building your brand new dream home is an exciting time, but for some the new homes process may seem overwhelming. Robertson Homes of Bloomfield Hills, MI has come up with a comprehensive checklist to help you get started on your way to home ownership in Northville, Ferndale, Wixom, or at our many other locations in southeast Michigan.

Our Building Process

Get Pre-Approved For Your Mortgage

While your mortgage counselor will guide you through the entire process, you will need the following documents for your initial meeting regarding your loan application: 

  • Your most recent paycheck stubs for each person applying for the loan 
  • Your past two years' W-2's and/or 1099's for each person applying for the loan 
  • Your past two months' bank/investment/retirement statements for all your accounts

Choose The Robertson Brothers Community That's Right For You!

Choose your Robertson Brothers community, home site, and model. There's one just right for you as we offer a number of communities in many of the area's premier locations. Our models and floor plans for new homes offer a variety of options that are sure to please the most discriminating home buyer.


Selections. Selections. Selections. That's the theme for this part of the ownership process. Your Design Center consultant will help you in selecting the choices that help really make your home unique. You'll make decisions concerning cabinetry, flooring, electrical, paint, appliances, fixtures, and more. 

Home Buying Seminar

You will learn what to expect during the construction process. You'll meet with a member of our on-site construction staff and your new home representative for an overview of the entire process. You'll go over each and every step of construction and warranty of your new home.


Your individual construction timetable depends upon the model you have chosen and its availability. Thorough inspections are held throughout the entire construction process to ensure that each and every phase meets with our rigorous quality standards. For instance, during our Rough Frame Punch Out stage, our construction staff conducts a 57-item inspection. During Pre-Walk (held right before your Pre-Closing Orientation) our staff conducts a 41-item inspection.

Pre-Closing Orientation

Approximately 7 days prior to closing, your pre-closing orientation is scheduled. What to expect: a staff member will walk through the home with you to review the home carefully. We'll answer any questions you may have, give you maintenance and care advice, and review warranties and service contracts. A member of our staff will then walk through the home with you once more on the day of the closing to confirm that all items have been completed to your satisfaction. 

Closing On New Homes

Now that the title company has finalized the paperwork, your are ready to get your keys and move into your fabulous new Robertson Brothers home. Congratulations! 

Customer Satisfaction Survey

Because we care so much about making every new homeowner a happy one, we have partnered with a private third-party consultant who will send out a customer satisfaction survey following closing. We appreciate hearing directly from our customers about their experience and welcome any feedback.

What Our Homebuyers Are Saying

The gold standard. That's what we discovered while working with Robertson Brothers. Prior to building, friends and neighbors warned us about how challenging it could be to work with builders. The horror stories we heard had us questioning our decisions. It didn't take long until we found that the stories were without merit. And every bad experience others had was countered by an excellent experience with the entire Robertson Brothers crew. We started building our house with a band of strangers. When we finished, those strangers had become friends. Rest assured, if we ever build another house, there's only one company we'll contact.
