Market Update

What a crazy world that we’ve all been living with since early 2020. None of us could have predicted being in the situation we are in right now. The real estate market has not taken a break since early 2020 and it has only continued to become an even hotter market. Since the onset of the pandemic, the price of lumber has skyrocketed to over three times the price at the same point last year. We see record highs in lumber prices day after day.

With historically low interest rates creating a red-hot market and the cost of building materials consistently rising, Creative Homes has had to learn to operate in this new demanding, hectic time. Like anything here at Creative Homes, we want to provide an unmatched customer experience for our homebuyers and that never changes though we now have to collaborate more than ever on what changing availably and prices can mean to the homebuying process. As we move forward in this uncertain market, our team will continue to put our homebuyers first. We’ll be working with you all to provide honest, transparent updates and get you into the house that truly feels like a home. We look forward to sharing more updates as the market continues to evolve and support you in each aspect of your home building journey.

Wow! It's hard to know where to even start and I know I won't be able to list everything, but I have to try and tell you how we awesome we feel about the whole building process with Creative Homes and how much we truly love our new home. The process of building with Creative Homes was the most relaxing (sounds weird, but so true!) home building experience we have ever been through. The communication provided from the very start until the very end has been phenomenal. Not once during the whole process did we ever sit and wonder what was going on regarding our home.  I honestly wish I could name everyone behind the scenes at Creative Homes who works so hard to make customers like us have such an awesome home building experience. This company has the standards and employees that all companies should take note of and follow the example of.

Everyone at Creative Homes was very easy to work with. They were very kind, helpful, professional and helped us through some ARC roadblocks so we could get the home we always wanted. My husband and I highly recommend Creative Homes!

We absolutely loved our new home from the first time we saw it, and have felt the same ever since moving in! From start to finish the entire process working with Creative Homes was smooth sailing. We couldn't be happier with our house or our home buying experience!
