Build On Your Lot

Whether you own your property or haven’t yet purchased one, you will hear us refer to your project as an “Offsite”.  This umbrella term means any homesite that Overstreet Builders does not own.  Either way, we can help!

If one of our featured subdivisions does not fit your needs or suit your lifestyle, let’s talk about your ideal location (whether you own it or not) and build one of our floor plans.. or your own! We can help you design your perfect home or bid a plan that you’ve had designed.  Whatever the situation, we want to partner with you to build your perfect home and simplify your custom home journey.

Why Overstreet?

“Offsite” options can become a game of settling and restrictions if you’re not careful. You’ll often find that builders in this realm are a “one man show” contractor unable to meet timelines, quality control or other important factors. At the other extreme, some contractors won’t offer flexibility with home sizes or price points that meet your family’s needs. Overstreet Builders expands your options and can truly cater to you!  Here’s how Overstreet stands out:

We offer VARIETY. Whether you are looking for the fully amenitized home or a simplified way of living, we can do it.

We offer FLEXIBILITY in design and price point.  Bring your personal specifications and non-negotiables and we will provide guidance in re-designing to meet those needs and accomplishing your new home goals.  Our skilled design team will work alongside you whether you are planning to design from ground up or make a few changes to one of our base floor plans.

We offer a highly qualified TEAM.  You get the same personal relationship, expertise and overall service that we offer to buyers who are building “onsite”.

We offer LONGEVITY.  Overstreet Builders was founded in 1961.  We have survived the test of time, including two major recessions.  We bring security to the table as you begin the biggest purchase of your life.  We WILL be here to complete your home and to service your home after you move in.  We will also be here to build your next home when you are ready!

We offer EXPERIENCE.  Our team has over 100 years of field experience.  With those numbers you can rest assured that our building practices are tried and true.  Your home is not an experiment or learning process for us.  We work like a well-oiled machine from start to finish because we know what doesn’t work.. and more importantly, what does.

We offer PEACE OF MIND.  Equally important, we stand behind our work wherever you decide you want to live. The same warranty and customer service are provided to ALL Overstreet clientele, no matter where you choose to build.

We offer WORK ETHIC and VALUES that are never changing. Check out our “Mission and Core Values”.  We value our relationship with you and have an amazing reputation due to this mindset.

With a decision as important as your new custom home – you want a builder with experience who is going to do it right!

What goes into offsite building?

Building “offsite” can be extremely rewarding!  We want you set up for success as you pursue your dream home on your dream property.  Not only is it important for you to start considering these topics for your own knowledge, but any builder that you are considering should bring up ALL of these points as well.  Knowing all of the information that could affect your build and budget will ensure that the partner you are pursuing for your new home can navigate your property and home construction for the best possible outcome.

WITHOUT a team like Overstreet AND proper guidance, building “offsite” can be intimidating, costly and a huge headache.  FEAR NOT!  We are here to help!

This guide is:

  • To get you set up for future conversations with your Overstreet rep.
  • To get you prepared for questions  and discussions that will be coming your way and   how to start finding the answers.
  • To help you understand why certain steps need to be taken.
  • And many other considerations.

We will help you avoid potential disasters in your “offsite” building journey.

We hope that you will find some helpful information in this guide.  And remember!.. We are the expert in this field… let us work with you to put the pieces in place!  Missing just one tiny piece of this intricate puzzle could completely blow your budget, prevent the entire project from happening (yes, sadly, we’ve seen it happen) or turn your dream build into a nightmare.  We do not want that to happen to you.  Let us oversee your project so that you have the best outcome possible.

Use this as an overview of the things you need to keep in mind while selecting your city, property and floor plan so that there are no surprises and your build experience is as smooth as possible!  Being “in the know” – as they say – will help you feel the most satisfied with your overall experience.
