How to build new in Taylor Farm

Building new is an exciting prospect because you get to showcase your individual taste, check off your wish list and create a home that functions around the way you want to live now.

Your choice of builder impacts all of these decisions and plays a pivotal role in the entire process of building your new home, consider starting there.

Where to Start

Embark on your journey with confidence by starting with the right foundation: selecting your builder. Your builder will be your trusted partner throughout the entire process of building your dream home, making it essential to choose them first before picking a lot.

In Taylor Farm, all lots are purchased directly from the builder. If you have a particular lot in mind and that lot is already owned by a builder, you must use them to build your home. Your builder’s agent can help you select a lot from the ones they own or can access any that may still be available to purchase from Qualico Communities, the developer.

If you’re just starting to explore builders and lot options, a builder’s agent is often your best source of information. Based on your needs and wishes, they’ll provide you with their lot availability, prices, and sizes, and give you an idea of what the total cost will be to build your new home.

Finding the Right Fit

Contact a builder by phone or explore their websites to get an idea which builders may be a good fit. An in-person visit can be even better, as it gives you a chance to speak to an agent directly. Visiting our show homes allows you to explore multiple builders and home styles at the same time, since they’re often conveniently located on the same street or block. This way you can speak to an agent directly and really get a feel for what they’re like to work with, as well as the flow and layout of a home.

What Happens Next

Once you’ve established your new home budget, you can work with your chosen builder's design team to select the ideal materials and finishes for the interior and exterior of your home. Builders can be an excellent resource on financing options, and have in-depth knowledge of the local services and community amenities.

Your lot size and location can impact your home’s floorplan and elevation, while also pinpointing your ideal setting within the community.

Consider Buying a Spec Home

A ‘spec home’ is another option you may see available on the Taylor Farm lot map. A spec home is either a custom home that a builder has finished building or that is currently under construction. Builders often create spec homes to showcase new floorplans, design features or even a particular lot. This can be a great alternative for prospective new home buyers who prefer to see a floorplan in person, or who may require a faster possession date and don’t mind starting with some – or many – of the home’s features set in place.
