The Sterling Pre-Construction Process

PORTFOLIO-Mediterranean-8502-RearHaving built the highest quality Austin custom homes since 1989, Sterling Custom Homes has developed innovative processes that make your homebuilding experience both organized and enjoyable.

This blog series will delve into our pre-construction process, which contains 10 easy steps that carefully guide you to the actual construction of your unique Sterling Custom Home.

Step 1: Initial Sterling Consultation

This introductory meeting gives us the opportunity to learn more about each other. We carefully listen as the clients discuss their unique lifestyle and specific needs. We also present our extensive qualifications and discuss the processes we’ve created to makes the building experience so enjoyable. At this meeting we will also share a list of over 200 past Sterling clients. We encourage prospective clients to call them to learn about their level of satisfaction with our company.

Step 2: Home Site Selection

Many clients already own their lot, but if they don’t we offer our expertise in the lot selection process. After narrowing the location down based on geographic requirements, schools, proximity to work or shopping, budget, etc., we develop a short list of potential properties. We walk the lots with the client and present them with our proprietary Sterling Lot Analysis, which identifies all the costs associated with each lot based on the lot characteristics, such as topography, trees, distance from the street, etc. This analysis will provide the client with an objective comparison of true lot cost and assists them in making their lot purchase decision.

Step 3: Lot Purchase

Based on the Sterling Lot Analysis, the client can be confident that they have all the information needed to make an informed decision. When the lot has been secured, Sterling will order a tree & topo survey (if necessary) and we’re ready to begin the design of this unique custom home.
