What is the difference between a Building Lots for Sale and Build to Suit Residential Homesite Main Idaho Real Estate Insights

When searching for a lot to build your home, make sure you understand the different opportunities.

 If you are looking at building a home, each community is a little different. Some have a builder team(s), some sell lots, some only sell finsihed homes.

Many of the subdivisions are developed and built by the same company. We normally refer to these as the 'production builders.' Normally, they will only build in their own subdivisions. They will have several floorplans but their business model is a streamlined process so while they do offer cusotmer service, you have to stay in the bounds of what they offer. For example, choosing a set package of finishes and design details or getting the standard landscaping but customizations would be done after you purchase the home. If you are looking for a number of customizations and want specific details done to your specification, they are not for you. The largest "production builders' for first time home buyers are CBH Homes, Hubble Homes and Hayden Homes. There are several 'Move-Up' Builders like Coleman Homes, Tahoe and Blackrock,

Much of Treasure Valley is made up of semi-custom builders. Here you normally find builders who offer more options and glad to incorporate your specific requests. The challenge can be bringing your builder of choice, unless it is a more luxury community. Many communities are a builder team. There are a couple ways these communities work. One is builders own lots so if you like a specific lot you have to work with that builder. Another popular scenario is that if you like a specific community you can choose from any of the builders. Sometimes you can choose your builder and your lot in these communities.

As you do your research, you might want to learn more about Production Builders, Mover Up Builders, and custom home builders and where specific ones are building. We at Build Idaho know many of the area builders and what style and subdivison they are building in. We are your number one resource for finding a lot, builder, and getting your dream home out of the wishing stage.
