Looking Toward 2016

Categories: Blog | Posted: December 21, 2015

SeaGate Homes would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our 2015 clients for making this a wonderful year and choosing SeaGate to be your home builder. This year we have had the pleasure of helping a number of people realize their dreams of owning a new home.

Many home buyers are reluctant to build a new home, for fear that it will take too long or cost too much. As our home owners have learned, these myths don’t have to be true – with the right builder. Some of the most common misconceptions of homebuilding are:

Myth # 1 – Building a Home Takes Too Long

Searching for the perfect existing home can take months in itself, and even then you may have to remodel and replace many common items to make it into the home you want. The building schedule at SeaGate Homes is 4 to 6 months (120 to 180 days) from ground breaking to closing; and when you are done you will have a house that is designed and personalized the way you want it. We also offer Quick Delivery homes that are already built and ready for you to move in.

 

Myth #2 – Building a New Home is Too Expensive

Here at SeaGate Homes, we pride ourselves on offering beautiful, quality homes at a great value. While offering over 40 floor plans and numerous design options, we keep costs competitive and help guide you through the building and design process so you can stay within your budget. In addition, we use today’s building codes to ensure that your home is built to the highest standards and efficiency, saving you tons of money on utilities.

 

Myth #3 – Choosing All the Options is Too Overwhelming

SeaGate Homes has an experienced sales team, licensed interior designers, and qualified construction mangers on staff to assist you at every step of the process. From choosing a lot and floor plan, to selecting the perfect kitchen, to explaining your building progression, our team is here to support you, and it is provided as part of the home building process.

 

Myth #4 – All Home Builders Are Alike

Many people believe that home builders are just out to make a buck and cut corners whenever possible. While this may be true of some builders, SeaGate Homes has an over 20 year reputation for building quality homes in Northeast Florida and remains a family run business. We have been voted the top builder in the area 6 years in a row and were recently recognized by Builder Magazine as being among the nation’s top 200 home builders and the 39th fastest growing homebuilder in the United States. We back this up with an industry unique 15 year structural warranty.
