Reputation & Tradition of
Building a new home will likely be the biggest decision you make in your lifetime. For such an important investment, you want to make sure you entrust your build to the right company. Cypress Homes has been building beautiful, quality homes in the Fox Valley area since 1994, and has a long list of past homeowners who are happy to share their building experiences. Cypress Homes was recently named a top three finalist for the Post Crescent’s “Best of the Valley” Readers’ Choice Award in the Residential Builder category for the third year in a row.
We have a
Friendly, Knowledgeable Staff
There isn’t enough that can be said about working with people who truly love what they do. That is exactly what you get with the Cypress Homes Team. While each staff member has their own area of expertise, they also have a general knowledge of the overall building process. Oftentimes, any of the team members are able to answer questions about your build. This close-knit team ensures that your home project is carried out efficiently, effectively, and exactly how you want it.
Local Builder, Local Jobs
Cypress Homes is a local company that works with local trade partners and suppliers. This means that the money you invest into your new Cypress home is reinvested right back into the local community. A recent study showed that over 3,200 Wisconsin jobs are supported by new home construction. It is one of the best ways to stimulate a weak economy.
Energy’s New Homes Program
Energy efficiency is an ever growing concern in today’s world. That is why Cypress Homes has teamed up with Focus on Energy’s New Homes Program. All new homes built by Cypress follow the New Homes Program standards, which guarantee the home will be at least 10% more energy efficient than homes built to Wisconsin’s standard residential building code. Most new Cypress homes test out to be between 20-30% more efficient than code. Which also means you will save money each month on your utility bills!
Design Center & Interior Designer
Building a new home can be a stressful and intimidating task. To help, Cypress Homes offers an in-office Custom Home Design Center to make many of the selection decisions for your home with convenience. The ability to make most of those decisions in one place reduces the time and stress that comes with driving around to different supplier showrooms. Cypress also has an interior designer on staff to help guide you through the process with no additional cost!
Plan Design, Renderings, & Lot Selection
Help with Entire Building Process
Cypress Homes is there to help throughout the entire building process. If you have not decided on a floor plan, Cypress offers an extensive library of home plans to look through for inspiration. Once you have an idea of what features you want in your home, plans can be drawn up specifically for you. Many people have a hard time visualizing their new homes, so Cypress is able to create basic home renderings to give customers a better feel for their new home before construction. Residential lot selection is another area that Cypress Homes can assist with. It is important to find a home site that is able to meet your needs, desires, and overall budget. Over the years, we have developed relationships with many of the land developers in the area and can often negotiate a better price on lots.
Flexible Financing Options
With today’s strict credit requirements for home loans, acquiring a traditional construction loan can be difficult. Cypress can work together with the customers and their lenders to give more flexibility with the type of loan program customers can use.
Short-Term Housing while Building
Another common issue when building is figuring out where to live until your new home is finished. Since it usually takes about 3-4 months to build a new home, it is sometimes difficult and expensive to find short-term housing. Cypress Homes makes this transition a little easier by helping you find a place to stay and even helping with a rent credit during the months you are building.
Help Selling Your Existing Home
Many people have a current home that needs to be sold before they can start building the new home of their dreams. Along with being one of the best home builders in Appleton, Cypress Homes is also a real estate company. This allows us to list and sell existing homes for our customers. As a courtesy to those building with us, we offer to sell customers’ current homes at a lower commission rate.
