Home finder

It’s time to start your new home search!

We take pride in our website and hope you'll agree that we've built the ultimate home finder! We've designed our new home search features to make it easy for you to find your community and home in a few quick taps or clicks. But so much of a successful home search depends on your ability to do research and match your own house hunting criteria to what's available.

The home search journey!


Make your wish list

Get pre-qualified

Before you get too far into the search process, it helps to have your finances in order. It’s easier to narrow down your online search when you know for certain what you can afford and it’s easier to move quickly and sign a contract when you’re pre-qualified for a mortgage. As always, we recommend working with our affiliate, HomeAmerican Mortgage Corporation.*

Narrow down neighborhoods

Don’t get so focused on the floor plan search that you lose sight of the location. We recommend driving through communities at different times of day to get a feel for the lifestyle of the area. Are people out jogging on trails? Is there a playground within walking distance? Does the community have a pool or a golf course? It’s these types of features and amenities that can make you fall in love with a neighborhood. If you want insider knowledge from a local expert, talk to a New Home Specialist at 888.500.7060.

Tour model homes

It’s time to leave the comfort of your current home in search of a new place to find comfort! Model homes are a great place to start. Make a shortlist of neighborhoods you would like to check out and verify that model homes are available for tour. Walking through beautiful furnished homes can be the best way to tell if you like the way a homebuilder constructs homes. Even if the floor plan you love is slightly different than the model home’s layout, touring in person can help your imagination along.
