Absolutely! We can align your new home’s completion date with the sell of your current home. Our New Home Specialists will work with our marketing team to use ahead of the curve techniques and strategy to help your home reach the most possible buyers and sell for top dollar when it’s time.
I'm currently in a lease but want to build/personalize my home while I wait for my lease to end. Is that possible?
Certainly! With our exclusive scheduling technology, we can align your brand new home’s build with your desired move-in date. Other than earnest money, no upfront fees are required until closing (depending on loan type). Your mortgage payment will be due 1-2 months after you move-in, depending on the date of your closing.
Is Hughston Homes negotiable with pricing?
Hughston Homes makes every effort to maintain the value of not only your home but the values of all the homes in the community by not negotiating prices.
Do your communities have an HOA?
Typically any community five years or newer will have some form of an HOA in order to keep home values high. The minimal HOA fees will cover maintaining the common areas, signage and landscaping at the front entrance, and common utilities.
Depending on the community and area, sometimes Hughston Homes does not include an HOA.
How long will it take to build my home?
Slab foundations usually take between 120-150 days and basement foundations take around 150-180 days to construct. However, delays such as weather, governmental codes, and permitting can delay that time frame. Bare in mind that those estimates are based on our average 3000 sq. ft. home. If you have a desired move-in date, let us know and we will tell you about the opportunities that align with your timeframe.

Can I build a shed or outbuilding on my property?
