Defining Custom Homebuilding

PORTFOLIO-Mediterranean-8502-RearSince 1989, Sterling Custom Homes has been one of the few true custom home builders in Austin. You may ask, “How can that be? There seems to be an abundance of custom homebuilders in this area.” The reality is, many builders like to call themselves “custom” homebuilders, but few are truly experienced enough and willing to invest the resources to counsel a client through the entire lot purchase, design, specifications, pricing, contracting and building of a truly unique custom home.

The old saying in our business is that when times are good, everyone with a cell phone and a pickup truck is all of a sudden a custom homebuilder. In reality, few builders have designed their entire process around walking the client through the maze of decisions that must be made when building Austin luxury homes. Many builders would much rather build a spec home and delay the client interaction until the very end of the process. With so little client involvement is this really a custom home? Is it built to the exact specifications of the client? Of course not.

At Sterling Custom Homes, we’ve organized the otherwise confusing process of locating the perfect lot and designing your unique custom home – all while understanding your budget as we help you achieve your exclusive goals. Nearly 25 years and over 250 custom home clients are a testimony to our dedication to this craft!

So don’t settle for a home design you didn’t create on a lot you didn’t select. Consult the experts at Sterling Custom Homes to see how easy it is to achieve your dream of a truly distinctive, high quality custom home that you and your family will enjoy for years to come.
