Perhaps you’ve had your heart set on buying from Wilkinson Homes for years, or maybe you just learned about us during your search for a new-construction home in southeastern Pennsylvania or Delaware. But once you learn about our decades-long history and experience as a leading home builder in the area, you’ll be more excited than ever to start the process of buying and building a home with our team. 

Whether you’re buying a home for the first time or are a seasoned pro, we’re here to offer some insight into the process of building your dream home with Wilkinson Homes. 

Figure out your finances 

Prior to building a home, it’s important to determine your purchasing power…exactly how much money you can (and want) to spend on your new home. Find out what type of mortgage loan is best for your situation, and feel free to ask the Wilkinson Homes team for preferred lender referrals. Knowing your set budget before the design and construction process begins can spare you and your builder from headaches down the road. 

Select a homesite and floor plan 

One of the biggest benefits of going the new-construction route is the ability to select the perfect floor plan to be built in your ideal location. Wilkinson Homes has an incredible selection of beautiful, modern floor plans for homeowners to choose from—as well as the option to build in one of our thoughtfully designed communities or on your dream piece of land

Customize your layout 

Wilkinson Homes goes above and beyond when it comes to the personalization of your home. You can leave one of our 21 floor plans exactly as is, or work with our team of design consultants and architects to customize the layout—allowing you to pick and choose the details that will turn a standard house into a home with all of the features and finishes you’re looking for. 

Participate in the process 

Wilkinson Homes has always focused on quality craftsmanship, energy efficiency, home performance, luxury, aesthetic and everything in between. To live up to our own expectations, we involve homeowners in as much of the process as possible. By keeping the process transparent and the line of communication clear, our customers feel empowered by their experience building a custom or semi-custom home with us. 

Our homeowners have the opportunity to speak with a variety of team members, from financial experts and project managers to field personnel and the owner of Wilkinson Homes. We’ve learned that building trust with homeowners is key to a successful process and a positive customer experience.  

Watch your vision come to life

After working with our team of experts to get the plans for your home on paper, construction can begin. We do our best to keep you in the loop as your home progresses—from site preparation, foundation, framing, drywall installation, landscaping and more. Working with production builders can often leave you in the dark, only given specific walk-throughs to check in on progress. But Wilkinson Homes is always here to offer explanations, provide details or show you what’s happening with your home. 

Start the next chapter with peace of mind 

Many people are unsure of what to expect from the custom and semi-custom homebuilding process, but Wilkinson Homes hopes to eradicate any doubts you might have about the design and construction of your home.
