The best time to begin the home building process.

By Buying Process, Home Trade In, Moving Process
Perhaps, you are planning on having your new family home built soon, but you aren’t yet quite sure exactly when is the ideal time to move out/in. Or it may be you have already decided on a season or month when you want to relocate but aren’t sure how long it will take to custom build your new home OR sell your current residence.

Here is some timely, helpful advice to help you better plan and organize your upcoming transition!

When Is The Best Time To Relocate?

There are numerous factors that can affect your decision on the ideal time to relocate. But the most common time of year for moving is summertime and for good reason.

Summer gives you good weather, for the most part. It may be a bit hot and sunny, but at least you avoid the cold and the rain, which are the two worst weather elements when trying to move all your household goods – especially if moving long-distance.

Also, the kids are out of school during the summer and are between grades, which means they don’t have to transition mid-school year. And it also gives you the option of simply combining your move with your summer vacation!

When Should I Start Building My Dream Home?

You say, “I want my new home built and move-in ready by this summer.” If so, how early should you start having your dream home built?

In general, it can take 6 months to a year to custom-build a new home. The exact time will vary depending on the size and complexity of your new home, the weather, city zoning, and the remoteness of the location.

Talk to a custom home builder in the Amarillo Area to find out how long the building you envision would likely take to build from start to finish.

How Long Does It Usually Take To Sell A House?

Typically, it takes only a couple of months to sell a listed home, but it is not unusual for delays of 6 months or more to occur.

That’s why it often makes sense to opt for a home trade-in plan to streamline the transition process. A home trade-in program lets you synchronize your move-out and move-in date, avoid paying a realtor, and avoid possibly having to carry two mortgages for a time.

Experience Homes can speed up the moving process by beginning construction on your new home with as little as $500 down (or by using home equity for the down payment) and by assisting you in finding needed financing. They also offer a convenient home trade-in program. To learn more, contact Experience Homes today!

The Experience Homes “Experience”

By Home Trade In No Comments

“A friend told me about the home trade-in program and I thought it was too good to be true.”

It’s a comment we hear a lot. To be fair, it is a valid point. Trading in your existing home in order to upgrade to a brand new home? It’s not a concept many home builders have embraced so there is not a lot of information out there for buyers. Many people don’t even know that the option exists!

For people who may be interested in exploring the home trade-in program here are a few tips to keep in mind when considering whether the program is right for you.


One of the biggest worries people have when buying a new home is how the timing will work out. Will you have to make two mortgage payments while you wait for your old home to sell? How much time do we have to move once we find a new home? There are so many factors to consider. The home trade-in program eliminates all of those tough questions. We pay to appraise your old home, we buy your trade in property, and we give you all the time you need to move. People who have gone through the home trade-in process say it’s actually easier than trading in a car!


We respect the fact that this is going to be your home. It’s the place where you relax, raise a family, and make memories. We only use the highest quality building materials available.



If you’ve never built a new home before the process could seem intimidating. It’s not supposed to be! We are here day or night to answer any questions that you may have. We want to keep lines of communication open to help make you feel as comfortable as possible as your home progresses from blueprint to fully fledged home.


I kept waiting for the other shoe to drop but it never did. It’s been a positive experience for me.”

We were thrilled to hear that from one of our customer’s because that’s what we strive for. We are committed to making the home trade-in program a positive experience for everyone. You are a part of the process every step of the way and we always value your feedback.

If you are interested in seeing if the home trade-in program is right for you give us a call. We’d love to answer any lingering questions you might have about the process.

What is a Home Trade-In?

By Home Trade In No Comments

If you’ve gone through the process of buying a new home, you already know how stressful the whole ordeal can be. You may need to get into a new home but aren’t jumping at the idea of going through the process again.

First come the questions:

  • Should we list our current home or wait until we find our new home?
  • How much time will we have to move once we find a place?
  • Will I be stuck paying two mortgages?
  • Do I need to find a rental property to live in?”

You want to take advantage of low interest rates before they creep up again. Unfortunately, you probably feel stuck.
When you’re trying to buy and sell at the same time you are at the mercy of the market and potential buyers. You could be waiting months to get a bite on your existing home.

When buying a home it’s location, location, location! When trying to sell your home it’s timing, timing, timing!

Thankfully, we live in a marketplace of choice. Traditional home buying methods aren’t the only options anymore. Home trade-in programs are on the rise because these programs take the hassle out of buying a new home.

The trade up process is straightforward and less complicated than you may think. So if you’re ready to trade up into something new, how do you start?

It all begins with a short meeting with our team to determine what will be the right fit for you.

After that, we will pay for an appraisal of your current home to determine its value. Once an appraiser places a value on your home, the fun begins!

You have the opportunity to pick out your new dream home and watch as it takes shape. Once construction on your new home is complete, we’ll buy your existing home. You can move at your own pace.

The home trade in program offers you peace of mind and gives buyers a greater sense of certainty.

Remove obstacles, reduce stress, and find yourself in a home that fits your family’s needs.
