If you’re a real estate broker and have a client interested in new construction, we’ll be happy to set up an appointment to show them the available inventory of lots in any of our sub-divisions.

Is new construction for me? If not certain whether new construction is right for you, we’ll be happy to set up a consultation meeting and take you through the pros and cons of the process. We can show you what builders have done before in our subdivisions, contact you with people who have gone through the experience already, suggest suppliers and offer anything you might need to make an informed decision. Spec houses are also available if you want a less involved hand in the process.



What is a spec home? It’s a home that a builder constructs with the understanding that someone will fall in love with it and want to buy it.

How long does it take to build a new house? Six to nine months, depending on weather conditions and other variables.
