The Highland Homes Difference, From Start to Finish
The dream of home ownership is one that many have, and deciding to build your new home can be both an exciting and daunting start on the journey to realizing that dream. We know how difficult it can be to navigate the home building process, which is why we’re here to help explain the positive difference Highland Homes can make for you before, during and after you buy your new Florida home.
From the first time you walk through our doors, you’ll feel right at home with Highland Homes. For 20 years, our knowledgeable and dedicated team has lived and worked right here in Florida; our homeowners are our neighbors and friends, and we have built more than 6,000 homes right here in the Sunshine State. So, you can trust that we are experts on Florida new home construction, and that a local expert is always available to answer any and all questions you have about the home buying and building process.
At our model center, you will have a personalized consultation with a New Home Specialist who will help you to select the perfect home site and home plan to suit your needs, and match your dreams. We can also connect you with a Highland Homes Preferred Lender who offers finance options for your budget, competitive rates and closing cost savings.
You’ll love personalizing your new home through the selection of hundreds of design options at Highland Homes’ Personal Selection Studio. From the included and no additional cost upgrades to luxurious finishes, our professional designers will guide you through the home design process and help you select the products and colors to suit your individual style and needs.
As you move closer to building your dream home, you will receive a brochure checklist so you can keep track of your home’s progress and know exactly what to expect next. Also included in the brochure is plenty of helpful information about mortgages, home warranties, closing and move-in. You can also check out the Home Buying 101 section on our blog so you’ll be even more prepared when you meet with our New Home Specialists.
Throughout the entire home building process, you will have open communication with Highland Homes. During construction, you will be paired with a builder who will provide key updates and will be available to answer any questions you may have. In addition, your New Home Specialist is at your service, and will keep you updated on your home’s progress.
On your final walk through, your personal builder will make sure you know the ins and outs of your home so you can enjoy it for many years to come. You will get orientated to your home’s features, discuss home maintenance and warranty, and sign off on your home’s quality completion.
To protect your investment, your new Highland home is covered by a one-year builder warranty, plus a 2-year mechanical systems warranty and 10-year structural warranty through 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty (2-10 HBW). 2-10 HBW only accepts the best builders into their warranty program, and is the nation’s leading home warranty company.
Even after your home has been built we strive to make sure you and your loved ones are completely satisfied with your new Florida home. All of our staff, from the corporate team and sales to subcontractors and warranty experts, is here in Florida so it’s easy to keep in contact after you move in. And, if you do require warranty service during the first-year of ownership, our customer service and warranty departments are based in Lakeland to provide fast and quality service.
Your dream of home ownership is truly our dream for you as well, and it would be our distinct honor and pleasure to build your new home in Tampa Bay, Orlando, Bradenton, Central Florida or Ocala.
