  • Q
    2. Can I personalize my home?
    A

    Absolutely! Each of Inspired Homes’ homes is built to suit, with full input from the buyer. Deciding on the community, homesite and floor plan is just the beginning. After you sign a contract with Inspired Homes, you’ll visit our Design Center to choose colors, fixtures, cabinet styles, flooring and much more, all with the help of our knowledgeable design team.

  • Q
    3. Do all of your homes look alike?
    A

    Not at all. Inspired Homes has several spacious, modern floor plans to choose from, plus multiple exterior styles for each floor plans. We also offer a variety of exterior materials and colors, giving buyers an opportunity to personalize their homes from the outside in.

  • Q
    4. How do I finance new construction?
    A

    Thanks to our cycle time, building a home with Inspired Homes doesn’t require any complicated financial transactions. The financing process is as straight-forward as if you’re buying an existing house:

    • Obtain a home mortgage
    • Sign applicable paperwork
    • Close on the house
    • Move in!
  • Q
    5. How do you deal with construction cost overruns?
    A

    The homebuilding price you agree to at the beginning of the process is the price you’ll pay at closing. It’s our job to come in on budget, and a big part of our commitment to exemplary customer service. If we don’t fulfill our end of the deal, we’ll take responsibility.

  • Q
    6. Does Inspired Homes offer a warranty?
    A

    We’re proud of our comprehensive, industry-leading warranty coverage. Each of our homes comes with a:

    • One-year warranty against defects in workmanship and materials
    • Two-year warranty against system defects
    • Ten-year warranty against structural defects

    Inspired Homes is a member of the 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty® (2-10 HBW), one of the strongest warranty companies in the U.S. To become part of the 2-10 HBW network, Inspired Homes underwent extensive screening of our experience and financials, as well as careful inspections of our construction process and subcontractors. At your closing, Inspired Homes will enroll your home in the warranty program.

  • Q
    7. How do I start working with Inspired Homes?
    A

    Come see us or contact us any time! Each of our communities is open daily. Tour model homes, get more information about floor plans and see available homesites. You can also reach out before your visit to make an appointment with our friendly, knowledgeable team of community managers. We’re excited to tell you more about bringing your dream home to life!

  • Q
    8. What if I’m already working with a Realtor?
    A

    Bring your Realtor along! A buyer’s agent makes the same sales commission on an Inspired Homes’ build job as they would when helping you buy an
    existing house. Please note that we do not offer discounts for coming in without an agent.

    The same mindset applies with mortgage companies. We have a preferred lender program that we’ll tell you more about, or we’re happy to work with your lender.

We shopped around with lots of builders and nobody could match the value that we got with IH. We have been in our new home for about 4 months now and absolutely love the space and quality for our growing family. We have already recommended IH to our friends.
