Building a new home is an exciting process! It takes vision, direction, and expertise.  As new home builders, Kismet Homes are designed to allow for the best use of space and can be personalized to reflect your unique style and taste. Each home comes with a 10-year Quality Builders Warranty as well as a 1 year Kismet Homes warranty to help provide our customers with a piece of mind.  Let Kismet Homes help you navigate this process and build the home you’ve been imagining.

From contract to closing typically takes six months to build with anywhere from three to five customer walk-throughs depending on what stage the house is in at contract.   Every walk-through is important as it keeps everyone on the same page and provides a level of comfort before moving on to the next stage of construction. 

Each Kismet Home is built with the finest building materials and the utmost attention to details and with the highest quality craftsmanship. If we can't warranty a product we don't use it.
