We can make unlimited changes to any of our standard plans, build from your plans or start from scratch from only your ideas! Just contact us for a free, no obligation consultation.

Some builders we’ve talked to require us to obtain our own permits and complete a lot of work on the house and homesite ourselves. Will we be required to do this with Precedent? No. In fact, we’re one of the few “On Your Lot” builders that is completely “turn key”. We’ll take care of everything from the permits to the final inspection, clean up to the septic system.

We really don’t want to build for several months. Is there any way to protect us from future price increases? Yes there is! Precedent Homes has a unique “Six Month Price Protection” program which locks in the price of your home and options for six full months! Even if you don’t have a building site, we can still lock in your price. Ask one of our Sales Consultants for more information
