Build Your New Home with DeLuca!

When building your home with DeLuca Homes, you can expect to have the help of a dedicated team guiding you through the process. We love helping our homeowners feel at ease by making sure they have all of the information they need. We keep an open line of communication along the way as we work together to build your dream home.

Our process starts with understanding your needs and lifestyle. This helps us ensure we find a community, home site, and floor plan that’s right for you. Your Sales Representative will assist you in the mortgage process, finalizing your sales agreement, and establishing an estimated settlement date. Then, you can add personal touches and upgrades with our extensive selection of options. During that time, we’ll apply for permits, start ordering materials, and other internal steps to make sure your home is built on schedule.

Before closing on your home, we want to make sure you’re happy and included in the process. That’s why our building process includes you in reviewing the plans and selections, walking through with us during inspection, learning about the features and appliances, and providing feedback on anything that still needs to be improved. After a final walkthrough, you’re ready to close with confidence and be welcomed to your new home!

DeLuca Homes is glad to be able to share with you these helpful resources and hopes to make your first home buying experience a great one. If you’re a new homeowner and looking to build in the southeastern part of Pennsylvania, please consider an architecturally stunning home in one of our unique communities. Even if you’ve owned a home before, we’d be honored to show you what makes our homes so special and offer a fun, collaborative home buying experience. Contact us today for more information!
