Arista Building Process: Fully Custom Homes vs. Custom Production Homes

February 22, 2024

Arista Development offers a wide range of custom homes and two unique building processes that cater to the diverse needs and desires of homeowners. From the immersive personalized journey of building a fully custom home with Arista Development to the streamlined efficiency of custom production homes, our team of talented home builders is committed to consistently creating homes with passion and precision to shape living spaces that support the lifestyles of each client. Whether you’re dreaming of a fully customized home or opting for the efficiency of a custom production home, Arista Development is here to support you in making a decision that makes the most sense for you.

You might be asking, “What’s the difference between fully custom homes and custom production homes?” If so, keep reading! This article will provide a comprehensive overview of each home building option, the processes from start to finish, loan options, communities and locations in Las Cruces, and more

Fully Custom Homes: Designing Your Dream Home

Custom Home

Saying ‘yes’ to building a fully custom home with Arista Development will begin a journey that is unique to each client from conception to creation. The pre-construction phase typically spans two to three months, where our team works alongside clients to set an overall budget and delve into floor plan design. The overall construction timeline, however, unfolds over eight to nine months.

Incorporating specific views and tailoring the design to the client’s hobbies and lifestyle, Arista ensures that each home truly reflects its owners. After the floor plan design portion of the development process concludes, our team begins to delve into elevation design and interior finish selections, and clients are invited to share any preferred exterior views to incorporate into the design and important details relating to personal lifestyle preferences or hobbies to be integrated into the home design.

While we can work with clients who already have a lot to build upon, we encourage prospective clients to consult the Arista Development team as early as possible in the process, and even before purchasing a lot. This will help ensure all costs are accounted for right away and avoid unexpected costs that may arise from preparing your lot and accessing utilities like water and electricity.

A final consideration to note in your decision to move forward with the custom home building process: Are you ready to commit to the obligation of a construction loan at the start of this journey? If not, keep reading for an alternative that may be right for you.

Custom Production Homes: Efficiency Meets Customization

For those seeking a quicker path to home ownership and less financial obligation at the start of the project, Arista Development offers a streamlined process without compromising on customization. The pre-construction phase of our Custom Production Homes takes just one to two weeks, involving a prequalification letter from a mortgage lender and a meeting to finalize options and the contract. Clients can select from a range of available lots throughout Las Cruces, floorplans, and elevation designs, with transparent pricing provided upfront. Interior finish selections follow and are selected within the model home to maintain the budget, and our team will help you choose the best options for what’s most important to you.

Our custom production homes offer clients a surprising level of flexibility and customization. For example, clients can choose to move select interior walls without significant price adjustments, allowing for more personalized layouts that support hobbies and daily habits. Additionally, details like interior finishes are fully customizable. Notably, Arista Development allows for more customizations in production homes than most other competitors.

Construction follows a swift six to seven-month timeline, and Arista Development takes on the construction loan obligation until the home sale closes. This means less of an upfront financial obligation from clients and allows for more opportunity for individuals who desire to build a home without the hassles that can arise within the fully custom home building process.

Arista Development builds these custom production homes in the Greater Las Cruces area in carefully selected locations throughout Metro Verde, including Red Hawk Estates Phase 1, Metro Verde 3D, and the expansive and Arista Development exclusive Crimson Sky.

Deciphering which option to pursue in your homebuilding journey with Arista Development requires thoughtful consideration of your timeline, preferences, and budget. Opting for a fully custom home is a compelling choice if you are seeking an immersive and personalized experience and finished product. Plus, if you are an individual with the time and resources required to invest in creating exactly what you want, a fully custom home might be precisely what you are looking for.

On the other hand, if a quicker timeline and a more straightforward budget are your priorities, custom production homes present an enticing option. With a streamlined one to two-week pre-construction phase and a six to seven-month construction timeline, this path caters to those seeking a quick move-in without compromising on customization. And because Arista Development handles the construction loan, this option lightens the initial financial load and makes it more feasible for individuals who may be more budget-conscious.

There is no “right decision” or one-size-fits-all solution, but identifying what’s most important to you and your family can help make the decision process much easier. We also encourage you to reach out to our team, and we can help identify what will be best for your unique situation.
