Home is where the heart is, and if your heart is happiest on your own land, then that’s where your next home should be. Dream Finders Homes is thrilled to reintroduce our special Build On Your Lot Program for Northeast Florida!

We offer an efficient, proven, 7-step process to build the home of your dreams on your land. You find the land, and we’ll take care of everything else. Here’s how we do it:


Step 1: Find Land


If you don’t already own land, this is the first thing you’ll need to do in order to build your new home. In Northeast Florida, you have plenty of options for where to live and what type of lifestyle you’d like to enjoy. A few questions to ask yourself are:


  • Do I want to be in a subdivision?
  • Do I need space (indoor and outdoor) for my family to grow?
  • Do I want an HOA to take care of exterior maintenance?
  • How much privacy will I want?
  • Do I want to maintain a large yard?
  • What’s the distance to school, work, and shopping?
  • Does the cost of land fit into my budget?


Tip: Be sure to ask your lender about construction-to-permanent loans so that you can roll the land and home into one loan.


Step 2: Select Your Floorplan


Once your land is secured, it’s time to choose your floorplan! You’ll work with a Build on Your Land Specialist to narrow down your options based on your needs and preferences. We offer 30 floorplans, so you’re sure to find one that is perfect for you. Once your plan is chosen, you will:


  • Choose all of the options you may want, along with exterior colors
  • Approve of any structural changes to the plan
  • Obtain a pre-approval letter from your lender
  • Sign a contract to build with 10% down


Step 3: Draft Plans


We will draft blueprints of the home that our Project Managers will use to begin construction. This process can take up to four weeks. When finished, you will sign and date your approval.
