Revival of Custom Home Builders in Southern Arizona

BENSON, Ariz., July 17, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- While we've seen the large production home builders having great success in the southern Arizona market over the last couple of years, now the custom home builders are coming back to life after suffering through the economic downturn.

"I survived," said Mark Stewart of M.M. Stewart Construction, referring to the long period of no new construction. Stewart focused on remodeling jobs for a few years, and then last year the calls for new custom builds started coming in. "My phone started ringing after the last election and my 2018 schedule filled up before January 1," he said.

Then comes the task of finding the right lot for these buyers. "One of the biggest challenges is to find a lot with utilities," said Brad Cooper, owner of MC2 Homes."If the lots are already split, the roads are paved, and the utilities are already there, we can't get enough of those," he said.

The platted and paved lots in a community like Red Hawk at J6 Ranch in southern Arizona offer such an opportunity. Located 25 minutes from Tucson, the sprawling 3-acre lots in Red Hawk appeal to those looking to build their dream home in a location with great climate, stunning scenery, away from the bustle of the city, but with great schools and major employers close by.

There are currently five homes being constructed in Red Hawk, with 21 lots immediately available and ready to build and 150 lots in future phases "They can bring us an idea on a napkin. We'll take it and customize it to what they want, and then get on to building it," Cooper said.

Custom homes in Red Hawk at J6 Ranch can be completed in as little as six months.
