Learn More about Buying a Toll Brothers Home including what to expect, the first 60 days, and more. 

  • 5% of the base price of the home design you select is due at closing. 
  • 5% of the home site premium
  • 20% of any added structural upgrades or options. Generally at the time of contract.
  • 20% of design center options.  Generally done within 30-60 days after contract. Once you select all of your design center options, they will collect 20% as a deposit. 

Here is a simple breakdown:

  • $1,000,000 Base Price: $50,000 Deposit
  • $10,000 Lot Premium: $500
  • $100,000 Structural Options: $20,000
  • $25,000 Design Center Options: $5,000

Total Required Deposit: $75,500

Please note that if you are purchasing the home utilizing a low down payment option like an FHA or VA loan you may be able to request a lower deposit. In one instance, I was able to negotiate my clients only pay 3.5% of the total sales price. It is not uncommon to also break up the deposit into multiple payments over time.
