What is the difference between a production builder and custom builder?

A production builder offers a set number of floorplans and options, with little opportunity to customize. A custom builder may offer a library of floor plans, which clients can customize, or they may allow clients to build entirely from scratch.

How long does the average building process last?

The pre-construction process (site search, site inspection, permits) is usually around three months. Construction (from bulldozer to completion) is usually around seven month. So in total, at least 10 months from concept to completion.

Does Walker Homes have a designer on staff?

Yes. Our in-house designer works with our homebuyers throughout the building process. They accompany homebuyers to vendors, assisting with selections. They also coordinate the meetings that take place during construction. We also have a Design Center opening soon!

Can Walker Homes offer financing?

We can handle financing, from construction loans to traditional loans. It’s usually whatever works best for each buyer. We have preferred lenders that we recommend for various loan products.

How does the selection process work?

Once we have a floor plan, the designer has several meetings with the homebuyer. Usually selections proceed from exteriors to kitchen, then to the rest of the home.

What is the range of cost per square foot?

Usually the range is $160 to $300 per square foot. We generally advise that it’s going to be around $200 per square foot for a Walker Luxury Home.
