There are some major builders in the Greater Cincinnati area responsible for the majority of new construction homes. They'll plan a community, perhaps just regular single family homes, or perhaps a mix of regular homes, patio homes and condos. The community may or may not include amenities like swimming pools, walking trails and clubhouses.
The builders are (for the most part) very good at doing what they do well: building a limited selection of homes with limited options to deviate from their approved floor plans. Those floor plans and options work well for typical home buyers, but what if you have particular needs?
There are other options besides the production style builders.
As you might expect, there are luxury custom builders. The only limit is your budget. Architects available to make a home to your specific tastes, you can go for the fully loaded home either in a luxury community or built on your own lot or acreage.
But let's assume you're NOT a CEO or haven't nailed the numbers in the last lottery, what are your options? We can take it down a notch. There are builders that work from the high end to the more modest. They may not be famous because their volume might be small, but they offer what you want: more selection and more ability to modify a home to fit your needs.
And another tier of builders is out there to meet the needs for lower cost homes. Less frills, less ability to make changes, but they'll meet your budget on your own lot.
We currently have listed two opportunities to engage a non-production type builder.
We have an in-fill lot of .9 acres in Loveland Park offered for less then $50,000. You can buy the lot and bring your own builder, or contract with a builder we are repping for this opportunity who has an option on the lots. This isn't a cookie cutter subdivision, so tiptoe through Tulip Drive and check out the possibility to have a new ranch home for under $300,000.
If you're looking for a subdivision, we also have a 1.1 acre lot available in Maineville's Wethersfield community. You can buy this lot for under $60,000 and Wethersfield is a bring your own builder community, so we have options if you're looking for a builder to meet your needs in the high $200s/low $300s range.
