New Construction / Contract to Build

Sunday, March 18, 2012 - Building a new home can be a challenging feat without the right team of professionals to assist you along the way. The McCarley Group has specialized in new construction / contract to build for over 10 years. Jackye McCarley has worked with many of Atlanta’s premier custom home builders in her 25 year career. Additionally, Christopher McCarley has assisted in contracts to build with clients from the Atlanta Falcons, Atlanta Braves as well as many local homeowners and investors. All new construction contracts are drafted on the Greater Atlanta Homebuilders New Construction purchase and sale agreement.

Meeting with the right builder can be paramount to your overall experience. The McCarley Group takes pride in listening to their client’s needs, determining the style of home desired as well as offering helpful opinions that have been learned over the years from working with hundreds of families. From your first call, to moving into your custom dream home, The McCarley Group will be available each step along the way.

Having a builder available to offer lot advice is a priority. You must know your building envelope and can determine easily by reviewing a survey and defining the setbacks on all sides of the property. Many gated communities will also have a design and review board that will approve all architectural floor plans and will have minimum square footage requirements as well as material requirements. The McCarley Group has custom built homes in Sugarloaf Country Club, The River Club, St Marlo Country Club, The Manor Golf and Country Club, Winthrop Park, Shadowstone on the Lake and much more!

After you have determined and narrowed down your floor plan, as well as selected your preferred builder, the construction process will begin. Many homes with at least 5,000 square feet (not including the basement) will take approximately nine months to construct. Remember, this is just a general quote. Weather and topography can cause some delays along the way.

Selecting your appliances and lighting will also be an important part of your building process. Many builders will have a professional vendor and showroom for you to browse through. You will be given an appliance and lighting allowance that will be used to select products – negotiating your allowances may be something you will want to discuss. Again, having an agent who has contracted to build many times before will be tremendously helpful to you along the way. Discover the McCarley difference and contact The McCarley Group today with any further questions regarding new construction / contract to build. Offices are located in Duluth and Johns Creek as well as the St Marlo Sales Center.
