What are the differences between production home builders and custom homebuilders? And which one should you be considering??


Built-in communities that the builder owns or has rights to!

✔️Quicker build time: 5-8 months
✔️Floorplans designed by the builder
✔️Little to no changes allowed to the plans
✔️Finishes and selections options vary from different builders
✔️Can find affordable living options
✔️Deposit required upfront and close when the home is completed



Built on your own lot most of the time. This means searching for land too!

✔️Longer build time: 8-12 months
✔️Floorplans are custom designed
✔️Tons of flexibility and customization in the options
✔️Better quality finishes and craftsmanship
✔️Overall cost is much higher
✔️Usually requires you to close upfront with a construction loan

Most of the new-homes sold in our area are built by production homebuilders. Examples would be Eastwood, D.R. Horton, Lennar, etc.

Production homes are perfect for all sorts of different buyers. From FIRST TIME buyers, to LARGE FAMILY homes, to MOVE-DOWN active adult buyers, and everyone in between. With the high amount of production builders out there, you are sure to find one that fits your needs.
