Diving Deep Into Our Build On Your Lot Program
Building a new-construction home is an incredibly exciting time in anyone's life—but building your own custom home on a piece of land that you've personally chosen is on another level of excitement entirely. At Sandlin Homes, we understand the unparalleled joy of creating a new home in DFW that is truly yours in a location you love, tailored to your preferences and dreams—which is where our Build On Your Lot program comes into play. Let's explore the steps involved in our program and how we can help you build your dream home exactly where you want it.
1. Find the perfect homesite
The first step in the Build On Your Lot process is finding the ideal location for your new home. Whether you already own land or need assistance in acquiring a homesite, we've got you covered. From Aubrey to Waxahachie and Weatherford to Hutchins, we strive to accommodate as many homeowners as possible and will verify if your desired location falls within our building area. In some cases, an "out-of-area" fee may be applied, but we'll do our best to ensure your dream home becomes a reality. If you currently own land in the DFW area, our team offers a complimentary homesite evaluation to assess the feasibility and potential of your property. And if you don't have land yet, don't worry—we work closely with experienced Realtors in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex who can help you find the perfect homesite that aligns with your vision. We overlook no details—such as house orientation for sunrise and sunset, access to highways, schools, neighborhood lighting, zoning, utilities and more—to ensure a location that effortlessly meets your requirements.
2. Select your floor plan—or bring your own
Once you have the homesite locked in, it's time to choose a floor plan within your budget that suits your lifestyle and preferences. Sandlin Homes offers a wide range of 39 thoughtfully-designed floor plans to cater to diverse needs and tastes—however, customization
is at the heart of our program. You have the freedom to make changes, whether it's adding a window, expanding square footage or incorporating special features like a bonus room or study loft. We want your home to look, feel and function like it’s uniquely yours—and our team of experts is here to do exactly that, ensuring that your home perfectly aligns with your vision and reflects your distinct style. We also value price transparency and sticking to your budget, ensuring that you have a clear understanding of the costs involved and guiding you through the decision-making process.
If you already have your own plans drawn up, we couldn't be more excited to help assist you with your dream home vision. Our team of seasoned experts will carefully assess your designs and provide you with a comprehensive cost estimate, tailored precisely to construct your home according to your specifications. Through close collaboration, we'll leave no stone unturned, ensuring that every intricate detail is thoughtfully integrated, resulting in a custom home like no other.
3. Secure financing
To begin the building process, it's important to secure a construction loan if you choose to finance your new home. Our preferred lenders specialize in this type of financing and will guide you through the process. It's essential to note that building a new home on your property differs from purchasing an existing home or one in our communities. Conventional, VA, FHA and RD loan financing typically support existing home purchases and may not qualify as construction loans. But, with Sandlin Homes, there’s no need to stress—our team will help you navigate the financing options and connect you with the experts who can assist you in securing the right loan for your project.
4. Get ready to watch your vision come to life
With the design and planning phase complete and financing secured, it's time to bring your dream home to life. Throughout the construction process, you'll enjoy working one-on-one with your dedicated Build On Your Lot specialist and Builder. We keep you involved every step of the way, providing updates and ensuring that everything is on the right track. While factors like permitting, inspections and weather may influence the timeline, you can typically expect your home to be completed within 8 to 10 months from the start of the foundation. Our team's expertise and attention to detail will ensure a smooth and exciting construction journey.With the Sandlin Homes Build On Your Lot program, your dream home awaits.
