What is Adair Homes?
We are a home builder that builds homes in the Pacific Northwest. We've been building real homes for over 40 years. The homes we build are just like the homes in any neighborhood you might drive through, we just typically build them for less, and we build on customer's land.
Do I have to own land to work with Adair?
A lot of our customers come to us without owning land. Many customers aren't even looking for land until they talk to us. We help our customers find a suitable piece of land, or a lot in a subdivision, and we build for them. In short, it doesn't matter if you own land or not, Adair Homes is the right choice to help you build a home.
I see other builders advertise for $38 a square foot or $37 and sometimes even $36. Are they less expensive than Adair Homes?
The simple answer is that some of our competitors advertise a low price just to get you in the door. Typically they offer a bland home with no garage to hit this price point. If you are lucky, they might even try to convince you that the square footage of the garage should be included to make the home seem less expensive than it is. Much the same as car dealers advertise one great deal in hopes that they can talk you into a much more expensive car, our competitors hope to do the same to you. An independent market consulting firm concluded that on average, Adair has the overall lowest price per square foot of any competitor. We don't try to "fool" people with price, we only provide the best built homes we can in hopes that our customers understand true value.
How are your prices so affordable?
Many people will equate affordable with cheap, THIS IS NOT THE CASE. We build homes much like many other builders. We just sell them for less. We provide quality and name brand options and materials. Again, we just provide them for less. Through 40 years of building and supplying materials to job sites, we've created an efficient and well thought out way of doing so. This efficiency saves you money.
Can you explain what it means that a customer is involved with the build process?
Customers are involved in the front end and the back end of the building of their home. This means they arrange for excavation of their site, getting permits, painting, and several other things. This seems like a big hassle, but it's not. Adair has a dedicated staff that will walk you through every step of the process. We have lists of contractors that can help you and we won't ever leave a customer to fend for themself.
Why would you have the customer do these things?
First, it saves you money. Second, we have found that through this process, the customer actually prefers this limited involvement. It gives them a sense of self accomplishment, puts them more in touch with the building of their largest investment, and allows them to learn many things along the way that they can utilize for the rest of their life.
We have heard that by building with Adair Homes we can have instant equity when we move in. What does this mean?
Put simply, typically the homes that we build for customers cost less than what they appraise for. The difference is equity in your home. Instead of being upside down after paying for a mortgage and owing more than the home is appraised for, Adair customers on average enjoy $25,000 of equity or more the day they move in.
Someone told me that Adair Homes builds "kits" or pre-fabricated homes, is this right?
NO, Adair Homes has always built homes on site, board by board, just like every other conventional builder.
