2020 Update: Thanks for reading my blog! Over the last 15 years I have sold dozens of Toll Brothers Homes, my wife is a former sales manager for Toll Brothers, and I have represented Toll Brothers Sales Managers in a personal capacity when they need to buy and sell a home. My unique insight into their sales techniques, incentives, and negotiation philosophy uniquely position me to be an effective negotiator for my clients when buying new construction homes.
Are you in the market for a new build luxury home? Award-winning Toll Brothers could be the right choice for you. The Fortune 500 company founded in 1967 is the country’s leading luxury home builder. Twice named “National Builder of the Year” by Builder magazine, the company offers personalized options and a unique home buying process. Toll Brothers uses premium and environmentally safe materials and offers an on-site design manager to assist you in choosing the perfect details for your custom-built home.
Toll Brothers New Construction Home Buying Process
Toll Brothers pride themselves on their customized buying process by fitting each buyer’s unique style and forming personal relationships with all their customers. Customers will work with one senior-level project manager throughout the home building process. Your project manager is responsible for all customers in your chosen community. They oversee construction and subcontractors along with every detail throughout the construction process. You will work with your project manager using a 360-item checklist that ensures your home will be designed reflecting your personal style.
Using Toll Brothers you will utilize “Design Your Own Home,” a tool used as a personalized way to lead the design process of your new home. Over 500 options are available for you to review, including in-law suites, sunrooms, and greenhouses.
With the Toll Brothers “On Your Lot” program, the company provides homeowners a ten-year warranty. The distinguished company also offers in-house financing that allows customers to put down a small deposit before construction and pay the balance once their home is finished.
One differentiator between Toll Brothers and other builders is their "unique and comprehensive two-step pre-settlement orientation program". Here's what you can expect when buying new construction with Toll Brothers:
- Step 1: Work with your designated construction manager to walk through a 360-item checklist which will ensure the quality and satisfaction of your new home.
- Step 2: The very next week, you'll tour your home and review touch-up work that was completed after the first assessment.
During settlement, you will be provided with a warranty request form which ensures any future warranty work is noted and corrected. Toll Brothers always surveys all buyers after move-in and utilizes their feedback for future design modifications. After moving into your new home you can log into your "My Toll Home" portal to add more personalized options and report warranty issues. This portal is also available during the new construction process to keep up with checkpoints and updates with photos!
