At Adair Homes, we know that we don’t just build homes. We help families build the next exciting chapter of their story. That’s why we love #AdairStories, the opportunity for our customers to share how building an Adair Home has changed their life for the better.

This story comes from an Adair Homes family in Banks, OR. With a short sale in their past they came to us with a vision for building a home… and rebuilding their future. Watch the videos below to learn more about how building an Adair home has changed their life.

1. They Built Equity

When it was time to move into their new Adair Home, they found an added feature they did not expect… equity! They took advantage of the Adair Homes guaranteed price program when they signed their sales agreement. When the home was completed several months later they moved in with 25% equity.


2. They Saved Money with Sweat Equity

Adair Homes is one of the few builders that allow you to save money through “sweat equity,” or completing some of the construction items yourself (even if you are not a professional). They painted their own interior and exterior, dug trenches, and landscaping.

3. They Moved Up

After just two years, after their home had appreciated by $200,000, they decided to list their home and cash out the equity to build a new home while interest rates are still at historic lows. Selling the right home, in the right location, at the right time meant that their home sold for full price in the first 24 hours on the market.

4. They Built the Same Plan

Moving up doesn’t always mean buying a bigger home. Often it’s about quality of life. This could be more customized features, a better location, or a lower monthly payment. They liked their Creston floor plan so much that when they sold it they decided to build the same plan again!

5. They Are Building More Freedom

Now this Banks, OR  family is busy finding land for their new home and telling their friends and family about their Adair Homes experience.
