Our Building Process – From Dream Home to Reality in 10 Steps

  • Step 1

    Breaking Ground

    This is your first opportunity to meet the highly-talented Starwood team and share with them your ideas and custom home features wish list. The Starwood team will present creative ways to maximize your budget and determine the best type of home to meet your unique lifestyle. You will benefit from their years of experience and building knowledge.

  • Step 2

    Financing & Pre-Qualification

    If you are not already pre-qualified for a construction home loan, we can set you up with one of our preferred lenders. They will assist you in carefully determining the size of loan you qualify for. We can also work with your preferred lender.

  • Step 3

    Custom Home Site

    Location, location, location! Our team will help you find the perfect lot for your custom home. You will have exclusive access to our personal inventory which includes over 100 custom home sites throughout the Valley. We can also build on a lot you already own, or help you purchase a lot outside our exclusive inventory.

  • Step 4

    Architectural Plans

    Chances are, you’ve already given extensive thought to the best floorplan to meet your unique needs. You can work with one of our highly-skilled architects to draw your floorplan from scratch or choose from a library of pre-drawn plans. Whether you need a basement, theater room, large pantry, or casita, we can incorporate any element into a new or existing floorplan.

  • Step 5

    Materials Selection

    You will be guided through this fun process by a skilled interior designer. You will get to choose your colors, flooring, appliances, fixtures, lighting, countertops, cabinets, etc. This is your opportunity to select the features that will best reflect your unique style in your new living environment.

  • Step 6

    Final Approval

    You will be presented with the construction agreement outlining the specifications, details, and final budget. We will assist you with all the necessary documents needed to obtain final loan approval. Once the loan is approved, plans will be submitted to the building department for approval. Our extensive building experience will allow us to identify and correct any potential problems that might hinder building progress.

  • Step 7

    Breaking Ground

    Once the plans are approved, it’s time to break ground! The construction process now begins. The heavy equipment will come in to begin excavation, the foundation will be poured, and the framing will begin to go up. Your dream home now begins to take shape.

  • Step 8

    Triple-Point Quality Assurance

    To ensure premium quality, Starwood offers the Triple–Point Quality Assurance. At critical stages of construction the home is thoroughly inspected by trade partners, a project manager and upper management. You are invited to visit the home site or schedule a walk-through at any time. You can be as involved as you want to be in observing the building process.

  • Step 9

    Final Walk-Through

    This is your opportunity to inspect your custom home accompanied by the building project manager. You can confirm the home has been built to specification and can see for yourself the superior quality of a Starwood custom home. Any discrepancies or concerns will be immediately addressed.

  • Step 10

    Welcome Home

    You will be given the keys to your brand new, Starwood custom home. While we don’t anticipate any additional service issues, we will be there for you to ensure your new home meets or exceeds your expectations. We look forward to maintaining a lasting relationship with you and the opportunity of helping those you know build their dream homes as well.
