Most Frequently Asked Questions
Below is a list of the most frequently asked questions (FAQ’s). If you do not find the answers you are looking for here, please contact us by phone or emails if you need additional information or have more questions.
We offer a free home site evaluation for our customers. If you own a piece of land or are trying to decide if you should make an offer to purchase we’ll come evaluate your property to make sure the ST home you are thinking about can be built on that property. Let our experts help you make the right decisions.
Most of our customers don’t have land when they first come to us. We are here to help. We have contacts throughout the area that update us on available land. We can help get you started on your search based on where you want to live, and whether you want to live in a neighborhood or out in the country. We have the resources and we’re just a click or a phone call away.
We understand the importance of consistent communication. In addition to the phone calls and emails keeping you up to date on the schedule of your new home, you will also have regularly scheduled meetings at your home during construction. When you have questions about the construction of your new home you will have a cell phone number in order to contact us directly.
Make an appointment with us and start from the beginning. First, select the home, then move onto the custom changes and options that you’d like to add. Second, determine how much your land will cost and the allowance items necessary to prepare your land (well and septic, driveway, sidewalks, landscaping, etc.). Don’t worry, we can give you accurate estimates for all these items. We will help you put together an accurate estimate with our experience and knowledge of the area behind it.
Warranties and taking care of our customers after they move in is something we pride ourselves in. When you buy a ST Home, you receive a one year warranty. You also receive the manufacturer’s warranties on each of the products that have been put into your home. These warranties range from a minimum of 1 year up to 10 years.
Yes, you can finance your land and your new home into one construction loan. You can also combine these if you already own your land but still have a remaining balance. The balance owed on your land will be added into your loan. This saves you from having two separate closings and also saves money on closing costs.
Yes, most financial institutions offer Bridge Loan and/or Interest Reserve programs. These programs can give you access to some or all of the equity in your present home. This equity can serve as your down payment and might also reduce your existing home payment Using these programs also allows you to move right into you new ST Home without having to move twice.
We guarantee not only that your home will be built on time, but that it will be built right. Our times of construction are typically 4 to 4 ½ months from completing the foundation to the day you walk through the front door.
Yes we will build from most sets of plans.
No, you don’t. You can sign what we call a reservation. This gets everything down on paper … all your changes and locks in your pricing. Then you can focus on finalizing your land purchase. Once all that is complete we’re ready to move ahead. You could be a “reservation” for 1 day or for 60 days. It’s completely up to you.
We offer more than 5 different floor plans ranging from 2000 square feet to over 3000 square feet of living space. We also offer a wide variety of plans.
The best way is to sit down with a New Home Consultant and determine what type of home is the best for you and your family. Our sales teams are experts at working with you to find out what’s most important and what you absolutely have to have in your new home. Call and ask how you can get a Value List … that’s the most valuable tool you can have in your new home search.
We would love to have models of each of our floor plans. Obviously that’s not economically feasible. So we ask our homeowners if new customers can walk through their homes while under construction. It certainly makes a difference when you can see a home first hand rather than on a brochure or blue print. Your New Home Consultant can find out if your home is being built in the area. Keep in mind, It might not be close. We’ve had customers drive across the state just to be able to walk through the home and make sure it’s the one.
Currently, we build in Bozeman and Big Sky
Yes. We build exactly what you want, right where you want it. Go ahead, ask us to move a wall, add a window, create the kitchen of your dreams or add a sunroom … we’ll do it. We’ll make our home completely yours.
Land costs vary widely. ST Homes can help you find the area that you would most like to live and provide you with estimates of land costs.
Absolutely! Some of our homes include a basement, perfect for storage or finishing off for extra family space.
