Oakmont New Home Construction Builders

If you are considering a move to Oakmont and wish to build a new construction home, there are a variety of new home builders to choose from. Here are a few of our favorite Oakmont 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. Building a new construction home 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 new home builders have move-in houses ready to go that are just waiting for a buyer. When builders do not have move-in ready new construction homes to purchase, many times they will have "spec" houses in the process of being built that have not yet been sold to anyone.
