Frequently Asked Questions:

 

How long does the building process take?

Usually 6-9 months from drawings and permits to home delivery.

 

We own a house. Where do we begin?

Our unique company set-up allows Atlantic Home Construction access to real estate brokerage services through our sister company Atlantic Real Estate. Atlantic Real Estate services the Western Maryland & Southern Pennsylvania region. Our team is dedicated to putting our experience and local knowledge to work for you from start to finish. We can help determine your current homes value and create a marketing strategy and time table for you to sell. Keeping the entire transaction in-house means less head-aches for you.

What makes your company different from the rest?

Unlike most builders, our unique company set-up allows us to offer real estate services through licensed Realtors®. We make this happen under one umbrella. We offer these services in-house working with one thing in mind; your goals and objectives. You won’t get lost in the process wondering who’s doing what and when.

You bet! Again, that’s what we do through our sister company Atlantic Real Estate keeping the entire transaction under one umbrella. We promise you won’t get lost. Our licensed professionals have been doing this for decades!

Does your company use good sub-contractors?

Yes. Using locally owned and operated companies who are quick to respond and provide superior customer service is something that we take great pride in. They are part of our extended company and we treat them as such and in-turn they treat us the same. A good working relationship is very important in the home building process. Making sure everyone is on the same page is essential.

How does your pricing compare to other builders?

Atlantic Home Construction specializes in Frederick and Washington County Maryland. We try not to stretch our boundaries so to not jeopardize the building process. Our “Best” pricing consists of sub-contractors that we work with on a consistent basis. Staying local and working with sub-contractors that are locally owned provides us with professional craftsmanship backed up by warranties and guarantees protecting your custom home project.

Can you help with financing?

We work closely with local lenders to find you the perfect loan that fits your financial needs. Our local lenders offer incentives and loans that allow you to purchase with FHA, VA, & Conventional financing. From Construction loans to loans with just one up-front settlement, we can help you get it done.

Do I need to bring plans or can you help us figure things out?

We can help you choose from a portfolio of homes which can be modified to fit your needs and/or we will work closely with your architect and/or bring your own plans and our staff will assist you with the details. We work with a variety of local designers who can make changes to plans and offer service pricing to fit your budget.
