Build Your Own Home and Save

Serving Austin, The Hill Country and the Greater San Antonio areas

Yes, you CAN build your own home and save thousands!

The construction consultants at Home Builder Assist know how to save money when you build your own home. We do this by assisting our clients with premier home designs, site placement, sub-contractor lists, project scheduling, construction estimates, budget tracking and more. As an owner-builder, not only can you build instant equity, you will have complete control of your project. 

The benefit of working with Home Builder Assist is that you’ll be able to take advantage of the years of experience that we bring to the table. On average, a normal home builder will charge you from 15% to 30% of the total cost of your build to hire and manage all the sub-contractors. Why not do it yourself? Just consider of the thousands you’ll save over hiring a traditional builder!

Attention Texas Owner-Builders

Did you know the amount of private parties building a home have been steadily rising since the housing market crash in 2008? Add to that that there are more new housing starts in 2017 in Texas than almost anywhere else.

Savvy Texans want the best quality home for the least amount of money. However, going it alone can be an uncertain venture when attempting any construction project. This is where a Consultant from Home Builder Assist steps in. Our consultants help reduce the learning curve for owner-builders by providing experienced professional guidance, bountiful online resources, in-person and phone support. If you are coming to Home Builder Assist with some construction experience, you can use as much or as little of our professional assistance as you want. Smart and frugal; that describes Home Builder Assist clients.

Build Your Own Home

Many places in the United States allow for individuals to get construction loans while being their own general contractor; Texas does not. Texas is different, but you knew that already, or you wouldn’t be here! To build your own home, the Texas banking industry requires that you utilize the services of an approved Builder of Record in order to obtain funding. However, not all Texas banks provide these specialized loans. Home Builder Assist will put you in contact with qualified lenders; which is one less hurdle you have to jump.

  • Help choosing the right lender for your project
  • We work closely with your lender and perform all tasks required as your Builder of Record, including the construction estimate and site visits
  • Our client only list of sub-contractors
