  1. Choose the Perfect Location:

    The initial step in constructing your custom home involves choosing the perfect location. Perhaps you've discovered land that has long captivated your imagination, or you're eager to build on family-owned property with cherished memories. Whether you're already in possession of a lot or in search of the ideal parcel of land, collaborating with one of our New Homes Specialists and your real estate agent can streamline the process of finding a location that aligns with your vision. Within our building area, numerous neighborhoods offer available lots, ensuring options that cater to your specific requirements and preferences as well. Check out WHERE WE BUILD!

  2. Secure Financing:

    Securing financing for a custom home is a crucial early step in the construction process. Meeting with lenders allows you to explore various mortgage options and determine the loan amount that aligns with your financial situation and creditworthiness to build a home. Our team of New Home Specialists can provide you with a list of preferred lenders that have a successful history of providing new home construction loans for our previous customers. Keep in mind that construction loans typically have different terms and requirements than traditional mortgages, so be sure to understand the terms of your loan agreement.

  3. Hire a Custom Home Builder:

    We hope you will consider Joyner Homes when choosing the builder to hire for building your dream home. Choosing the right custom home builder is crucial to the success of your project. Research local builders, read reviews, and ask for referrals from friends and family. At Joyner Homes, we have a full in-house team ready to seamlessly support you throughout your entire home building journey.

    You can schedule a meeting with one of our New Home Specialists to discuss your vision, budget, and timeline. Look for a builder with experience constructing homes similar to what you envision and who offers transparent pricing and clear communication throughout the process. We encourage you to review our GOOGLE REVIEWS!

  4. Design Your Dream Home:

    Once you've secured your lot and hired your builder, it's time to bring your vision to life. When building with Joyner Homes, you will work with our entire team, from our New Home Specialists, Architectural Specialists, and Design Specialists, to our Project Managers, to determine the budget, select from one of our 23 FLOOR PLANS, make architectural changes, and design selections that align with your lifestyle and preferences. From layout and room sizes to exterior finishes and interior details, every aspect of your home should reflect your personality and meet your functional needs. Our team will help make that happen!

  5. Navigate the Permitting Process:

    Before breaking ground on your custom home, you'll need to obtain the necessary permits and approvals from local government agencies. Your builder should handle the permitting process on your behalf, ensuring that your project complies with building codes and zoning regulations. We understand that life can get hectic and that the permitting process can be overwhelming, so our team at Joyner Homes will handle this process for you, guiding you through any required documentation and ensuring compliance with local building codes.

  6. Build Your Dream Home:

    YAY! With permits in hand, construction can officially begin! Throughout the building process, it's important to maintain open communication with your builder and make regular visits to the construction site to monitor progress and address any concerns. At Joyner Homes, we utilize a platform called Buildertrend, where our customers can always see which building phase their home construction is currently in, making it easy for homeowners to be involved throughout the process. Clients and our Joyner Homes team can submit photos and questions through the client portal, creating easy and centralized communication for both parties. During the building process, be prepared for unexpected delays or challenges, but trust in your builder and your JH Project Manager's expertise to overcome obstacles and deliver a high-quality finished product. Meet our JH TEAM; they're pretty great!

  7. It's Time To Enjoy Your New Home:

    The moment has arrived! After meticulous planning and months of dedicated construction efforts, it's time to move into your custom-built dream home! Take the time to celebrate and enjoy this significant achievement with friends and family. Whether you're unwinding in the inviting embrace of your spacious living room, making a family recipe in your dream kitchen, or enjoying the company of the ones you love on your back patio, you deserve to savor every moment of your new home.
