Tammy Sue, Other/Just Looking in Philadelphia, PA

Hello there! My husband and I are new to the area, we are wondering who are some of the builders in the area who only specialize in new homes?

Asked by Tammy Sue, Philadelphia, PA Sun Jan 27, 2013

We are not looking for a "Jack of All Trades" general contractor, but companies who only specialize in creating developments full of their own new construction, such as Robson Homes, Pulte Homes, ect. The problem is that Google is not being very helpful and those are pretty much the only two I've found. We are looking for anything in good areas of SJ, anything up by Fremont, Los Gatos, Santa Clara, Sunnyvale. I greatly appreciate any help I receive! Thanks!!!

Hi Tammy Sue,

Here is a list of some of th builders in the South Bay. It's is not a complete list because it is what I can remember tight now. If you need more information, contact me. By the way, always go to a new development with your Realtor, or you will be banned from using a realtor at a later date if you should buy a home in a new homes community. Here are the developers I have worked with or recall...

Trumark Homes
Pinn Bros
Ryland Homes
Summerhill Homes
KB Homes
Classic Communities
Barry Swenson Builders
Warmington Homes
Toll Brothers
Pacific Peninsula Group
O'Brien Homes
Shea Homes
Shappell Homes

That is absolutely not a complete list, but it should get you started. give me a call if you should have any questions about these or other builders.

In addition to the great list Grace provided, if you get the Sunday Mercury News Paper their is a new home section.

William Lyons (Coyote Creek community)
City Ventures (Scotts Valley)

If you want someone to help you as a buyers agent for new construction you will need your agent to go with you on your first visit.
