Buying a home is an exciting decision, and working with local experts who are knowledgeable and excited to serve you is an important part of the process, especially during this time.

Local builder Southern Homes has been dedicated to customers for close to 30 years by providing beautiful and affordable homes.

This summer looked a lot different from what any of us expected, but that doesn’t mean your home-buying goals shouldn’t happen in 2020. Whether you’d like an in-person or virtual visit, Southern Homes can accommodate your preference. Southern Homes’ model centers are being professionally cleaned every day to ensure your health and well-being. In addition, the Southern Homes’ team is offering virtual options for the entire sales process – from the first visit to signing your contract.

Part of the experience that comes with choosing Southern Homes is the “My Home, My Way” program, which allows you to personalize and build the home of your dreams. Southern Homes’ experts will walk you through every step of the process from conception to reality. Choose the location of your home, select a floor plan, select your personalization options, and sign the contract.
