How Long Does It Take to Build a New Home
“How long does it take to build a home?”
This is a common question that we deal with on a regular basis when someone is looking at new construction for their next home.
Design & Estimation – This part of the process usually takes 15-30 days, depending on the final design and details of the new home construction. This is where we work with you on developing a floor plan of your home and general (to specific) ideas of how you want us to finish your home. We will then work with our vendors and subcontractors to develop a turnkey price for your home.
Financing – This part of the process can take from 30 days up to about 75 days, and that is almost completely dependent on which bank we are working with. There are several lenders out there today who are capable of doing new construction loans from start to close in 30 days, but many (especially the big national banks) can take from 60-75 days (or more) to close your loan. We’re happy to work with you to find a lender that meets your needs and offers you the best financing option for you.
Construction – It’s time to build your new home. We’ll be working with you to make selections on how your home will be built, discussing locations for electrical outlets, and a variety of other items during this time. Depending on the complexity of the home, most new home construction takes between five and seven months from when we start.
Overall the process usually takes us between seven and nine months from the time you commit to building your new home until we can have it ready for you to move in.
