Why Dream It When You Can Build It
Most people only dream of the perfect home. They pin their favorite designs on Pinterest or take a stroll through model homes… and that's where it ends. What if you could build that perfect home, exactly the way you want it?

With Caruso Homes “Build On Your Lot” program in North Carolina, you can! We offer customizable home building options so that you can create your dream home, right where you want it. 

Whether you're looking for a kitchen that's perfect for entertaining or an ensuite bathroom that's fit for a spa, we can make it happen. Let's explore what makes building on your lot with Caruso Homes such a great option.

Build in the Neighborhood You Love

One of the best things about building a new home on your lot is obvious — you get to choose the location.

If you already own a lot, great! We'll evaluate your lot finishing and give you an estimate of how much money you can spend on the floor plan, design options and upgrades.

Don't have a spot picked out yet? No problem! We can calculate your construction costs and provide typical lot finishing information so you know how much you should budget for your property. 

We've also teamed up with property sellers to provide you lot and home combinations in Raleigh and Charlotte.

Have Complete Control Over the Layout and Design

When you build a home from scratch, the design possibilities are endless! No more making do with someone else's idea of what a perfect home looks like.

You'll get to choose your layout, select any upgrades, and add all of the finishing touches that make a house a home. Explore our available Raleigh floor plans and Charlotte floor plans.

And because you're working with us from the beginning, we can make sure that your home is designed and built to meet your specific needs and budget.

Enjoy the Process with an Experienced Team

With Caruso Homes you can enjoy a personalized home building experience, from start to finish. Our sales and construction team will guide you every step of the way, ensuring that your home is constructed to Caruso Homes' high standards of excellence in craftsmanship.

You can expect a typical on-your-lot building process to look like this:

1. Find your perfect North Carolina lot
2. Decide on a floor plan and create a wish list of finishes, features and upgrades
3. Work with a Caruso Homes representative to create a cost estimate based on cost of the lot, lot finishing, base cost of the house, and pricing for any upgrade options
4. Apply for a Construction-to-Perm loan with one of our preferred lenders
5. Meet with our specialists to review the building process, sign your contract and receive a timeline of construction
6. Go to settlement on your Construction-to-Perm loan -- this loan will include the purchase of your lot and the cost to build your home
6. Construction begins! Our team will keep you informed throughout the construction process.
7. Walk-through orientation with your project manager to show you how your new house works. We'll also go over review our warranty procedure.
8. Key Exchange -- On this day you will sign the final paperwork, receive your keys and are now ready to move into your new home!

You don't have to sacrifice location for luxury. With Caruso Homes, you can have both! We'll work with you to find the perfect lot in Charlotte or Raleigh, and then we'll get to work building your dream home.

I walked into a Caruso home and I just had a gut feeling, I was home. I fell in love....I was most surprised by how fun the experience was as opposed to stressful.
