Schaeffer Homes: Building Strong for Generations

For three generations, the Schaeffer family has been committed to providing quality-built, affordably priced new homes in South Jersey. Starting with Thomas Schaeffer Sr., continuing through Thomas “Tim” Schaeffer Jr., and now guided by Jason Schaeffer, this dedicated clan has made homebuilding a true family affair.

A Legacy of Craftsmanship

Thomas Schaeffer Sr. learned the craft of woodworking in the Army during WWII and immediately put his new skills to work in the home building industry. His dedication laid the foundation for what would become a family tradition.

The Second Generation: Tim Schaeffer Jr.

Tim Schaeffer Jr. worked alongside his father, honing his craft and building custom homes in Southern New Jersey. In 1989, Tim founded Tim Schaeffer Communities, continuing the family's dedication to quality homebuilding throughout the region.

Continuing the Tradition: Jason Schaeffer

Tim’s son, Jason Thomas Schaeffer, took his years of experience and is now shifting the company’s focus to “on your lot” building in South Jersey and at the Shore. Jason worked his way through the trades while attending high school, college, and graduate business school. Today, he continues the tradition as President of Schaeffer Family Homes, ensuring the family's legacy endures.

A True Family Affair

Various members of the Schaeffer family are involved with the company – that’s what makes us different! When you build a home with us, you work with everyone in the family. In case you’re wondering, Jason’s sons are already part of the company… he named the newest floor plans after them!
