Can you help us find property?

Yes! One of our owners is a licensed real estate agent and we have great relationships with other leading Real Estate firms. Just like homebuilders, not all land is created equal. We will help you identify the right property for you and your family. Whether you have property already, or are looking for a wooded home-site, acreage, or a patio lot, Kurk Homes has the flexibility to build your custom dream home.

How long have you been in business?

Kurk Homes has been in business since 1989 with several hundred satisfied customers. We are a fully insured company. Please feel free to ask us for referrals and check us out on the Better Business Bureau.

Does Kurk Homes offer a home warranty?

Can you build from our plans?

Yes! Your plan or ours, or we can help you design your home. View Plans

What if we don’t find a plan we like?

Kurk Homes does not believe you should have to settle for a builder’s particular house plan. With Kurk Homes, you can modify any plan to suit your needs. If you choose, our award winning designers will create a totally unique plan, designed from the ground up to fit your needs. Working through Kurk Homes, the cost for a custom plan will be 40% less than dealing with a home designer or architect directly.

What if I have to sell my house first?

More than 90% of our customers need to sell their home sometime during the construction period. We work with some of the top realtors in the area and can refer the right realtor for you.

How long does it take to build a custom home?

Kurk Homes will work with you to build your home as efficiently as possible without sacrificing quality. From the time we pour the foundation, barring weather or trade delays, we estimate a 7 month actual construction time.

Does Kurk Homes offer financing?

Though we do not have “in house” financing, most of our customers work with our preferred lenders in order to get quality service and the best possible interest rates.

How much does a Kurk Home cost?

Depending on the design of the home, homes start from the low $110’s per living square foot in the Houston area and the low $120’s per living square foot in the hill country without the cost of land, but with all of our Standard Features.
