How Can We Help?

Our team of Online Home Consultants is eager to answer your questions about our unique process.

Posted by Kari Montoya on Dec 16, 2020 11:01:07 AM

We use the phrase ‘on-your-lot’ quite a bit around Adair Homes. Why? Well, it’s exactly what we do. At Adair Homes, we build your house on your lot. We aren’t buying large tracts of land and developing neighborhoods as you might see in expanding suburban areas. Instead, our business is focused on helping our clients build homes on land that they choose. Through our unique home building process, our clients acquire strong equity positions in their improved properties—not to mention their dream custom home come true.



The Meaning

So, what does “on-your-lot '' mean? The answer is fairly simple; an on-your-lot Home Builder is exactly what it sounds like. It’s a builder who will construct your new home on your land. The builder does not provide the land, but instead builds the home on land that the homebuyer owns.  If you don’t already own land, don’t worry . . . 

Finding Land

The majority of Adair Homes’ customers are still in the process of acquiring land, and that’s okay. We understand that finding your ideal property is a journey unto itself. And if you’re starting the process from the very beginning—hooray! Adair has many resources available to clients to assist in finding land—and financing it.

Did you know that the costs related to land can be easily wrapped into a construction loan? Our friends at Alliance Financial work exclusively with Adair clients to offer construction financing at great rates. 

We recommend you find a builder before you find your land. You might be thinking, you are a builder, of course you recommend finding a builder first. There are several advantages to this and we outline the top 3 reasons below: 

1. We have access to real estate partners who specialize in land, and will have better knowledge to assist you in your search.

2. We can give you better insight into the total cost of your home, including land, site development, the construction of the home, permitting, and upgrades. 

3. You can get started right away! Browse floorplans or start working with our drafting team to design the custom concept you've been dream of.

Advantages of the On Your Lot Model


There are significant advantages to on-your-lot building. Rather than choosing from a handful of homesites and blueprints with pre-chosen finishes, you have the ability to build your dream house in a location of your choosing.


Prefer the wide open spaces of country living? We’ll build with you there. Find an in-fill lot in your preferred school district? We can build there, too. After all, location is the single most important part of your home. You can always change interiors—but your physical location stays the same. 


Adair has been in the business of saving people money for decades. We believe that you will make the best financial decisions when you have control over your own investment. Starting from the ground-up allows you, the future homeowner, to make choices about what jobs you want to do yourself (gaining sweat equity), and what jobs you’d prefer to hire out. In 2019, the average Adair Home customer moved into their new home with 25% in earned equity. From day one.

We’re here for you. At Adair Homes, we want your home to reflect everything about your ideal lifestyle. Tile floors, wood trim, extra large pantries and picture windows—all these little, seemingly insignificant details add up to major lifestyle points. If you want wood floors, then we’re putting in wood floors. 100%. Our vast inventory of finish options will suit any style.
