Q. How do I get started?
A. Many people think that building a custom home is a scary proposition. They have heard “horror stories” from other individuals. Our goal at Sable Homes is to take the “scary” and “stories” out of the home building process.

Step 1. Mortgage Qualification:
The first step in buying or building a new home is to determine how much you want to invest. This will normally be a combination of cash and a mortgage. Contact a lender to determine what you qualify for. Call the mortgage lender to schedule an appointment and to find out what documentation you will need to take with you. You can fill out a mortgage application online with one of our partner lenders by clicking here. | |

Step 2. Determine a budget:
Now that you know the maximum that you can spend on a house, you need to determine if that is what you should spend. Evaluate your family budget to determine what monthly payment will best meet your short-term and long-term goals. Don’t forget to budget for items that go with a new home, i.e. furnishings, decor, window coverings, landscaping, etc.

Step 3. Determine a location:
Drive around the different areas and neighborhoods that you might want to build in. Consider each area’s proximity to work, schools, shopping, and churches. Decide what is the most important to you now and in the coming years. We will help you in the lot selection and purchase process.

Step 4. Prioritize needs and wants:
Make a list of everything you want your new home to have. Decide what is the most important and list in order of priority. Number of bedrooms, baths, garages, home office, basement, size of yard, location, kitchen appliances, etc., should all be considered.

Step 5. Make a picture album:
Whether paper or electronic, began collecting pictures of what you want your new home to look like. The more pictures the better of kitchens, bathrooms, elevations, flooring, cabinets, fireplaces, colors, and finishes. This will help us to determine the design and style of your new house.

Step 6. Contact us:
Schedule an appointment to make your dream home a reality. Bring all the information you have gathered above and we will do the rest. We may already have a house plan or home in our current inventory that meets your criteria. If not, we can custom design one just for you.

Q. Can I build on my land or a lot that I already own?
A. Yes, we can design a home to fit your property and needs. We can also build barns,
out buildings, and metal buildings.

Q. Do you only build in Lubbock?
A. No, We can build in rural areas or in the city. However, we are only building in the state of Texas at this time.

Q. Do I choose my own colors, appliances, finishes, etc...or do I use a predetermined package?
A. Either. We believe that it is your home so we want to help you make it uniquely your own. We can help you in the selection process or you can use one of our pre-coordinated packages. We also have professional decorating services available.
