A lot of folks we are talking with today are expressing an interest in building their new home next Spring. They beam with excitement about the prospect of starting as soon as the weather breaks and be ready to move in to their new home at the start of Summer.
What many do not realize is that now is the time to meet with your home builder to select a house plan, customize it to suit the needs of your family, and put your personal touches on the design. That way the plans can be finalized, pricing locked in, and permit applications prepared so all is ready to break ground to meet your time lines.

That way you can show them to your family & friends during the holiday gatherings and they can share in your excitement for your new home. You can lock in today’s price for a Spring start.
