Building your dream home with Villagree is more than just picking from a list of standard floorplans with basic finishes and options. You will enjoy the opportunity of creating a sanctuary for you and your family with an exquisite one-of-a-kind custom designed home.
1. Getting Started
We understand there is a blend of both excitement in building your very own dream home as well as apprehension in the scope of the project. With Villagree, our clients repeatedly express how much they enjoyed every phase of the building process. Upon request, we are more than happy to offer a list of references from Villagree clients.
The initial step will be identifying your overall budget for the project. This should include the total cost of the home, property, utilities, and other potential expenses associated with the build (removal of trees, any additional excavation, retaining wall requirements, extended driveway requirements, HOA dues, etc) which we will outline up front for you once your lot is selected. This ensures peace-of-mind for you that we have identified any items beyond the Standard scope of a project so you can stay on budget. Throughout the project, we ensure your budget is kept in mind so there are no surprises when it is time to close on your completed dream home.
Clients enjoy our worry-free and straight-forward approach to pricing along with our impressive no-need-to-upgrade Standard Features included in every Villagree home.
Our reputation has afforded clients with the ease and enjoyment of building with Villagree.
Villagree has simplified the financing options for the construction of your new custom dream home. More often than not, we hear from buyers regarding apprehension and uncertainlty of where to start with financing a lot and the construction of the new home – or either one seperately.
How much can they qualify for? How can they purchase a lot ahead of time if they do not want to start construction of a new home until later? Do they have to sell their current home first? These questions can be overwhelming.
This is why Villagree has partnered with a local bank to provide straightforward lending options to meet the specific needs of your family.
We have partnered with a preferred local lender to ensure a smooth and hassle-free financing experience. Offering flexible options, the lot can be financed separately from the actual construction loan. Some clients prefer to purchase a lot even 18 months before they want to start the build of their home to allow for the sale of their existing home or just designing their custom forever-home.
Our preferred lender also provides extensive and flexible financing options. Every buyer’s situation is unique. This is why we have established a long-term partnership with a reputable local lender who can provide hassle-free lending options for the construction of your new home.
3. Lot Selection
Identifying the location of your new home is among the initial steps. We can build on your existing lot if you already have one. If not, we can work with you to best identify your preferred location – whether it is a specific community, neighborhood, or acreage property. No need to worry.
We offer full service Real Estate services with access to all MLS listings. Along with our builder expertise, we can help identify any potential challenges with specific build-sites, utilities (well and septic or tapping into existing water and sewer), as well as specific architectural requirements for specific neighborhoods that may be required.
It is imperative that we identify a property that meets all of the requirements for your family. And then we design the home to fit the lot while taking into consideration the topography, views, walk-out, etc.
With Villagree, we ensure every phase of the building process is truly enjoyable! And it all begins with the lot selection to build your new dream home on.
4. Designing Your Forever Home
With Villagree, we custom design every one of our homes, unless you already have your plans which we can certainly use. This is unique among the building industry. More often than not, a builder will send clients their to work directly with an architect. Clients then discover when the plans are complete that their new dream home that they spent months designing is no longer affordable. Typically, we can have a full set of custom plans within just a few months.
With Villagree, we eliminate any worries of your home scoping out of budget. By working directly with the builder, we ensure not only the vision of your dream home is captured, but that your home and design is also within your overall budget. Repeatedly we hear from clients and guests that there is a distinct difference in the overall functionality and design of a Villagree Home, along with unprecedented finishes that are the highest among the industry.
Developing your custom floorplan for your new home consists of one-on-one design meetings directly with the Villagree team. This ensures your vision is carried-thru to completion.
With Villagree, every home is a masterpiece and we ensure no detail or option is overlooked. Also, based on the lot selection, we ensure certain items are reviewed and considered in the overall design – such as views, decks, courtyards, window placement, and creating an overall harmonious blend of indoor and outdoor space. We take pride in ensuring our homes are the envy of the neighborhood.
We often hear from clients that our homes exemplify exquisite comforts mixed with elegant livability.
5. Construction Phase
Throughout the project, you will have on-site meetings with the Builder and specific subcontractors to ensure all aspects of your forever-home are captured and reflected with your vision. A typical build will take approximately 12 months. However, some factors may affect this such as weather, scope and size of project, finishes, etc.
Clients enjoy the tremendous amount of details and precision in every new Villagree home. We ensure that quality is never sacrificed. Building with Villagree is a bit unconventional in the fact that all of our tradesman are master craftsman. From our framers, trim carpenters, iron workers, wood workers, tile layers, cabinetry, etc – we focus on quality to ensure each and every home is a true masterpiece.
Here is a highlight of some of the onsite meetings conducted during the construction of your Dream Home:
- Groundbreaking Ceremony
