Building a Custom Home

Building a custom home is exciting, challenging, and rewarding.  We want you to enjoy your home building experience with peace of mind.  That is why we will guide you through each stage from picking out your lot and designing your home, to obtaining financing.  Just bring a little patience and a sense of humor, and we will provide the rest. 

 

   

RiverCrest Homes is a proud builder of ENERGY STAR® labeled Homes.  ENERGY STAR® was created to help consumers easily identify products, homes, and buildings that save energy and money, and help protect the environment.  As the government-backed, trusted symbol for energy efficiency, the ENERGY STAR® label identifies highly efficient products and designates superior energy performance in homes and buildings. 

 

We have found that laying out the following steps to building a custom home can be helpful to our clients:

Obtain financing – We have over 20 years of experience in the financial industry and are eager to work with your lender.  We have preferred lenders who specialize in lot and construction lending, as well as mortgages.    

Find the lot – We are more than happy to help you gather information about the location you are considering.  In fact, Chip is a licensed real estate broker with extensive knowledge about real estate in the North Dallas surrounding areas.

Design your home – We have relationships with excellent architects who will help you design a home tailored to your lot and specifications.  You will be amazed at the end result when you design your house to fit on your lot. 

Choose your selections – While it is not important that you determine exactly which appliances or flooring you are going to want at this stage, it is important to determine the price ranges of the selections you will be making for your home.  We will work closely with you and our suppliers to set allowances that will allow you to choose the things you want in your home.

 Set the budget – Once your plans and selections are complete, we will compile bids from our suppliers and subcontractors that will be involved in your home building project.

 Build your home – We make every effort to create a worry-free experience for you and your family.  You will receive excellent communication and involvement from us throughout the construction process. 

 Keeping in touch – Our relationship isn’t over just because your home is finished.  We will continue to provide answers and information long after you and your family have moved into your home. 

   

 

We look forward to helping you with your home building project.  Please give us a call for more information about buying or building a custom home at 972-989-8019 or email chip@rivercresthomes.net
