An old idea that has improved with better financing and better technology.
Look at this 1930s magazine advertisement for a Sears & Roebuck "Honor Bilt Home" and compare to what Homestead can do for you today!
"This is why i am buying my own home...because of my family. What better reason is there for building your own home?"
There are many reasons other than this, but to thousands of past Homestead customers this is the number one reason. Building with Homestead is like building with family, we will be there when you need us the most throughout your construction process.
"The chances are that your present rental would not exceed the monthly payments on a modern, stylish Honor Bilt Home"
This is still true today, with today's historically low interest rates, mortgage payments have never been more affordable.
"Much of our success rests upon our famous 3-for-1 plan. All you need is a well located lot and a little cash."
in today's terms this would mean 25% down required, with Homestead you may only need as little as $1000 down. Using the Homestead system you can use any savings you create by managing the build yourself as your down payment.
"Our ready cut methods of construction eliminate 40% of your carpenter labor."
Homestead provides wall and roof components that are pre-built for ease of construction. These components are delivered directly to your build location and are ready to be assembled on-site in less time that a typical site-built home.
Here is a recent article from realtor.com visiting an original Sears & Roebuck home built in 1910 showing that your Homestead Home could be around for centuries.
