Oakmont Builders

If you are considering a move to Oakmont and wish to build your own home, here are a few of our favorite builders you need to be talking to. 

Each of these custom builders builds houses at a particular price point and has varied lots to choose from on which to build your new home. Building a new house can take six months or more when you are starting out with a vacant lot. Depending upon your timeline, a move-in ready new house may be the best option for you.

Sometimes builders have move-in houses ready to go that are just waiting for a buyer. When builders do not have move-in ready houses to purchase, many times they will have "spec" houses in the process of being built that have not yet been sold to anyone.

Your agent will be able to help you determine if there are any homes for sale in Oakmont that will work for your price point and timeline.
