Legacy Custom Homes
we have invested resources to ensure
a building experience
second to none.
Building a Home is indeed a process, and one best meticulously managed. We get that, and have put the pieces in place to make sure you’re successful.
MAKING YOUR HOME BUILDING A SUCCESS
In-House Design Center
We understand that people are busy and don’t have time to be driving all over the county to make selections decisions. Without a design center, the customer is burdened with making, for example, a tile decision, without access to the countertops, or hardwood floors, or cabinets. That opens the door for an uninformed decision and is a recipe for disappointment. Legacy keeps it all under one roof.
On-Staff Selections Coordinator
During the selections process you are not alone. Experienced in decorating and project management, our Selections Coordinator lends selections advice to ensure that the home of your dreams is the one that you build. The Selections Coordinator will also keep you on schedule to ensure selections decisions don’t hold up construction progress.
Full Support Staff
Legacy is not a one person shop and no one person is expected to do it all. A customer is surrounded by a team of staff that are experts in various aspects of the construction process. The Sales Manager or President works with a customer on the architecture, specifications, options, and contract paperwork. The Field Manager runs the day to day construction of the home, and the Selections Coordinator is side by side with you through all the finish details. We are set up so the customer gets the best of everyone’s talents.
Guaranteed Up Front Pricing
Legacy offers a fixed contract price up front. Our detailed specifications document explicitly details the scope of work so there is no gray area in what the expectations are for the home. Other builder’s may offer a “cost plus” scenario where the builder is not incentivized to negotiate the best pricing possible as it is simply passed along to the client.
Detailed paperwork ensures that a customer always knows where they stand financially. A change order details the proposed scope of work and the cost effect of a deviation from the specifications. No work is done without Legacy’s and the customers signatures and the pricing is given up front so there are no surprise charges at the end.
Legacy is a financially strong company and has stood the test of time. Despite one of the worst recessions of all time, Legacy has never been foreclosed upon or given any property or lot back to a bank. For this reason, banks are more than willing to loan money and subcontractors stand in line to work for Legacy. A Builder’s finances are very important because if a builder fails to pay a subcontractor, a lien can be put on your home!
Labor And Material Contracts
Because we build more homes than the average custom builder we are able to negotiate below market pricing contracts in order to help keep our prices low and save money for our customers.
The Selections Center
The Selections Center at our office offers you hundreds of product samples – from hardwood floors and ceramic tile to granite counters, cabinets, and plumbing fixtures; from fireplace mantles to exterior stone, brick, and roofing selections; from mirrors and shower surrounds to bath, drawer, and door hardware.
