Custom Home Buying Process

Building a custom home can mean several different things. It could mean that you build a pre-existing plan on the home site of your choice, with a few tweaks here and there. It could mean that you find a new home community with options for customizing one of the available plans on a lot that the builder already owns. Or it could mean that you want to be involved in the design process from the beginning, building a fully custom home that exists nowhere else.

Each of these options comes with different price tags, and here on we can connect you with the right home builder to suit your needs. Perhaps you already know exactly what you want in a custom home, or maybe you’re only just beginning to consider the idea of building a custom hone. Either way, you’ve come to the right place.

All of the builders featured on this site do some level of custom work. If you’re looking to design your own fully custom plan from scratch, you can expect to pay several million. It is possible to get into a custom home for less than 1 million, but these types of jobs are semi-custom and grow out of a pre-designed plan. When choosing a custom builder, consider these things:

  • The metro area you want to live in.
  • Your budget compared to the builder’s cost range.
  • Whether you want fully custom or semi-custom.
  • How important it is to build on a lot of your choice vs. a lot within the builder’s community.
  • The architectural style of the builder.
  • The builder’s existing floor plans. is here for you to use as a tool to discover builders you might be interested in working with. On every profile you will find contact information and a link to the builder’s website, where you can conduct further research by reading their company history, homebuyer testimonials, and exploring the communities they build in.
