Confidence From Afar

It’s no secret that building a home is one of life’s many stressful mountains to climb, even despite the wonderful downhill ride that is seeing one’s dreams come to fruition. Add to this the challenge of building a home in another state, and the challenge can often appear overwhelming and insurmountable.

This challenge is something that Fairview Builders knows well and deals with quite often, and we feel that we’re better than ever at helping our clients achieve an excellent result with minimal stress. Throughout our nearly 14 year history in the custom home market, we’ve dealt with far more out-of-town clients than locals. Our market is centered on the luxury resort and golf communities scattered around North and South Carolina, and that typically means that we deal with clients that are nearing retirement, already retired but looking to relocate, or who want a second or third home in the beautiful foothills and lakes of the Carolinas.

The goal: being trustworthy stewards of the significant investments that our clients entrust us with and seeing that our clients come out of this process with the home they’ve dreamed of. The strategy? Communication and transparency. Fairview embraces the opportunity to construct beautiful homes while honoring your busy schedule and your hard earned expectations. We keep you informed of the many possibilities you may wish to pursue on each finish, while using our experience in partnering with you to stay accountable for the budget you wish to follow. We organize information in ways that we’ve found to make the most sense to homeowners so that you don’t feel led into the unknown.

Apples to Apples

While reading through a trade publication recently, I came across a concept that really stood out to me as I thought about what values Fairview offers as a homebuilder. Speaking on ways for builders to differentiate themselves from the competition, John McManus put it well: “It comes down to your ability to make your square foot more alluring, valuable, and resilient than the next guy’s (Builder Magazine).” Fairview offers a wonderful product that considers each of these traits.

Alluring – Architectural roofs, stained cedar shake siding, hand crafted cabinetry, natural stone veneers, exquisite granite counter tops, and intricate post and beam structures are just a few of the many top-end finishes that our craftsmen and subcontractors expertly mold into each home we build. Whether your home comes from a plan or is custom design drawn from the ground up, we help you to achieve a unique look that is all your own.

Valuable – With each home that we build, we understand that our clients are entrusting us with a considerable investment. It is our goal and desire to see that we are managing this investment wisely so that maximum value is incorporated into the home from start to finish. At times, this value comes in the form of a top-end finish that is unrivaled in quality and beauty. At others, the best value might not be attained with the grandest finish, and in actuality, our clients may at times rest easier knowing that we were careful to give them more bang for their buck.

Resilient – One of Fairview’s greatest attributes is our dedication to creating the strongest and most durable homes around. When it comes to luxury and retirement homes, maintenance is not something that we want our clients to deal with any more than they have to. This is why we do not believe in shortcuts and insist on going the extra mile when we feel it necessary. Poured concrete foundations, foam insulation, high-efficiency windows, and countless other high-performance products help to ensure that our homes are built on quality and will continue to be quality investments for their owners well into the future.
