Build On Your Lot in 2021

Make 2021 your year to build on your lot in NJ. Get a fresh start in a brand new home customized just for you!

We can build your new home on a lot you already own, or we can help you find land to build on. If you already own a piece of land, we’ll inspect it to be sure it’s suitable for building one of our available plans. We’ll also let you know what steps you need to take to prepare for building on the property. If you haven’t purchased the land yet, we suggest that you meet with us first so we can guide you in choosing the most appropriate lot for your needs.

Build On Your Lot is available in the counties of Atlantic, parts of Burlington, Camden, Cape May, Cumberland, Gloucester, and Salem in southern New Jersey.

When you build your new home with us, you’ll have more than 20 15 home plans to choose from in a variety of styles and price points. We offer both one and two-story homes, with owner’s suites on the first or second floor. We can build each home on a slab, poured concrete crawl space or full basement foundation. Our floor plans are customizable as well. If you already have a home plan, we’ll look at it and determine whether we can build it for you.

After your home plan is finalized, you’ll meet with one of our Design Center Specialists, Ashley or Christie, at our Design Center in Cherry Hill. There you’ll choose your home’s colors, flooring, kitchen countertops and cabinets, lighting fixtures and more.

Our Legacy Package is included in every home, and we also offer our ever-popular Signature Package as a luxury choice. The Signature package is a luxury selection that includes a full basement, stained oak handrails and balusters on staircases, premium hardwood floors in the foyer, 5 ¼ inch baseboard, 42” kitchen wall cabinets with crown molding, ceramic tile floors in owner’s bath and hall bath and other upgraded luxury features.

Get started today to build your customized brand new home in 2021. Call Schaeffer Family Homes at 856-208-5118 to schedule a free consultation for the new home you want to build on your lot in NJ.

Cash in on a Hot Market by Selling Your Home Now

Now is a great time to cash in on the hot market for homes in NJ. If you’re thinking of selling your existing home, there’s no need to wait until spring. Buyers are ready now and the demand is high.

Thanks to a combination of factors including historic low interest rates, there aren’t enough houses on the market to satisfy buyer demand. Sellers can ask for higher prices than in previous years and homes are selling faster.

How can you make the most of this seller’s market?

  • Ask for your top price. Don’t give in to lowball offers or accept the first offer too soon. Allow time for other offers from additional buyers. Plan a strategy with your real estate agent for managing multiple offers.
  • Prepare your current home for a quick turnover. At the very least, give it a deep cleaning and freshen the paint. Maximize curb appeal by cleaning up the yard and home exterior. If your home has flex spaces that can be used as a home office or distance-learning space, highlight those features, along with any outdoor living areas.

Selling your existing home now can put you in a great position to build your dream home in 2021. Building a new home allows you to create the home you love in a location that you want.

We can help you do that with our Build On Your Lot program. We can build on a homesite you already own or help you find a piece of land to build in these Southern New Jersey counties: Atlantic, Burlington, Camden, Cape May, Cumberland, Gloucester, and Salem.

You can choose from more than 15 home designs ranging from 1,034 to 4,308 square feet. We offer one and two story homes and can build on poured concrete crawl space or basement foundations. We’ll work with you to help you select the right plans for your homesite and lifestyle. Through our “Build On Your Lot” program, our floorplans start from the upper $100,000’s to upper $300,000s.

We offer many options for customizing these plans. We may also build your custom home from plans that you already have.

Mortgage Rates Drop Again

Now is the perfect time to shop for new homes in NJ. Mortgage rates have dropped to a new all-time low. Your dream home will be more affordable than ever with today’s great deals.

Rates on 30-year mortgages are averaging around 3%, with some dipping below that mark. Rates on 15-year fixed-rate mortgages are even lower, averaging 2.72% in early August.

Mortgage rates fluctuate day to day, but overall are hovering at historic lows. People with high credit scores and substantial down payments can qualify for the best rates.

Are you in the market for a new home this year? Our “Build On Your Lot” program enables you to build any of our floorplans throughout the South Jersey area, whether you own a homesite or not. We have an in-house Land Acquisition Specialist that can assist you in finding a piece of land to build on from Cape May County up to Burlington County.

We offer a wide variety of floorplans for you to choose from to build your dream home. All of our floorplans feature different exterior elevation options and structural options for you to choose from. You will also have the opportunity to pick out every interior and exterior design selection to personalize your home to be your own.

The Phoenix floor plan is a split-level starting with 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths in a 1,948 square foot design. Three exterior elevations are available in combinations of siding, brick and stone. Each elevation of this two-story plan has a covered front porch and front gables that create great curb appeal.

Inside, the Phoenix is designed for today’s casual family living. The spacious foyer is flanked by a dining room on one side and the powder room and laundry room on the other. The entrance hall leads straight to the family room, which is open to the breakfast nook and kitchen. A private owner’s suite is on a separate level from the main living areas and upper bedrooms. Alternate layouts and options for customization are available.

Let us help you find a homesite in Camden County, Burlington County, Cape May County, Atlantic County or Gloucester County. We have homesites available ranging from half an acre to just over five acres.
