Nobody wants a house that they cannot sell when life tells you that its time to move. Although we are confident that you will never want to leave the home that we will build for you, life is always full of surprises and changes. Our homes certainly retain their resale value. Feel free to hop on the internet and search for home resale values. These are homes that are constructed with only the highest quality materials and construction techniques. They are built to last...and resell.

9. Tour your home builders Model Homes and Open Houses.
This is an extremely important step. There is no way to get a better feel for a home builder's work than to visit a house that they actually built. We will be happy to provide you with a list of Model Homes and Open Houses in the area. We are tremendously proud of what we create and we want you to experience our work for yourselves. Call us today and speak with one of our experts.
10. Look for signs of quality
If you do get the chance to visit an Open House or a Model Home, please look at everything in great detail. A lot of new homes look great to the untrained eye, but a closer look may reveal cheap materials and less than optimal construction practices. We assure you that you will not run into these issues with Mercer Island Home Builders. Our work is top notch and we only use the highest quality materials.
