Frequently Asked Questions

How long will it take for my house to be built?

Many factors contribute to the time it will take for your home to be completed. We make it a practice to never work on too many homes at once so that we can devote adequate attention and resources to your home. That said, things like weather conditions and changes you wish to make along the way affect start-to-completion time, which ranges from four to six months in a typical situation.

Why should I build a new house?

There are many reasons to build a new house, and many people who are glad they took the plunge. When you build a new house, of course you are able to choose what suits you and your family best, both in terms of floorplan and design options. Do you have allergies? Fill the house with wood and tile flooring. Always wanted blue glass tiles in your shower? Now’s your chance. Tired of worrying about hot water running out? Install a tankless water heater. And the list goes on and on.

When you build a new home, you are not inheriting any of an older home’s problems. You start fresh with brand new house components that you can maintain properly from the get-go.

Our new homes also feature the latest in green and weather-withstanding technology. This is not only the healthiest option for you and your family, but it’s also the safest. For instance, we incorporate the most recent construction recommendations for making sure your home has the strongest chance of withstanding extreme weather. The recommendations made today are more advanced than those made even just a few years ago. Green homes also save significantly in energy costs, a benefit that will keep more money in your pockets for years to come.

The thing that many people don’t realize is that building a new home doesn’t typically cost more than purchasing a previously owned home. So the question isn’t really why should I? but why not?

How do I pay for my new house?

Paying to build a new house is usually somewhat more involved than simply obtaining a mortgage loan. You will probably need to obtain financing for your lot and a construction loan. However, every situation is different, and we know experienced people who can help walk you through the process. Read more on our Financing page and don’t hesitate to contact us.

Do I get to choose everything?

The prospect of “choosing” everything can either be exciting or overwhelming — or both. Yes, you will be able to choose things such as your floorplan, your exterior style, your paint colors, your bathroom tile, etc. But we have an excellent selection of options for you to choose from so you don’t have to start from scratch. We also have an exceptional design team and showroom — so you don’t have to do it on your own.

Will my marriage survive building a house?

Many people who have built homes say it’s the hardest thing they’ve ever done as a couple. We are happy to say that this isn’t the case with us. We work closely and personally with each of our customers. When you have a question, you won’t have to go through many channels and wait days for a call-back. You won’t have to fill out forms and go through hoops. You will get to know your builder, and you’ll be able to talk to him about anything and everything. It’s the Persica way.

Do I have to pay for every little change I might make along the way?

We want you to be happy. Inevitably, you’ll think of little changes you want to make along the way, and we do everything we can to incorporate your wishes into your home with as little fuss and expense as possible.
