Are you intimidated about constructing a custom-built home? When we first started our business, we noticed there were misconceptions among buyers. Some loved the idea of building a home the way they wanted, but thought it would be a long and involved process. Others believed custom-built would come with a high price tag, or they marked it off as something they could not afford. Going the custom-built route doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive—depending on the builder.

Not interested in a bidding war? Consider a Custom-Built Home instead.
by Brandon Simpson and Dan Lawson
Anyone who has shopped for a new home lately knows: It has become a sellers’ market and a bidding war among buyers. Despite the U.S. recession, buyer demand is surging and bidding wars have begun. Those who can are taking advantage of historically low mortgage rates, or they are looking to relocate to less crowded rural areas. But unless you are willing to out-bid multiple offers with an excessive price for a less-than stellar home, you should consider a custom-built home.
You don’t have to settle.
Instead of overpaying for a home that needs a “re-do” on the kitchen or foregoing a garage, you can build your dream home from the ground up.
The price is set.
There’s no bidding—period. This saves time you may have spent checking out home after home and placing multiple offers. At AB Homes, we build homes at a predetermined price, not at an inflated price driven by the current market.
Build it to your specifications.
You can build your home the way you want it, from choosing the floor plan to selecting features that reflect the way you live, work and play.
We maintain an inventory of beautiful lots. Once you decide on a floor plan, we can point you in the direction of the ideal location. And we’ll show you where the house will be situated for optimal living and privacy.
Everything is brand new.
No one ever had to fix up a new custom-built home. Our homes come complete with a finished garage, granite kitchen counter tops, ceramic bathroom tile, ample closet space and stainless steel, energy-efficient appliances (to name a few).
Home warranty coverage.
We know that your home is one of the most important investments you will make. AB Homes partners with 2-10 Homebuyer Warranty, covering your new home with: one year of surety coverage against workmanship and materials; two years of surety coverage for defects in wiring, piping and ductwork; and 10 years of structural defects for load-bearing components.

All the best,
