You’ve worked hard to get where you are, now you want a home that sets the bar when it comes to style, features, amenities and curb appeal. Stricklin Construction is your builder for luxury homes in the Tyler Smith County area.


Why Experience Matters With Luxury Home Construction

There’s more to being a successful building contractor than coordinating subs and sourcing materials. Plenty of builders have had a lot of knowledge about what goes into making a structure but they aren’t so great at running a business.

Experience matters at every stage. Builders get in over their heads when they underestimate what it takes to bring a project to completion. With the cost of home construction like it is today, it’s easier than ever to get in heavy debt and have to shut down or restructure. The news is full of cautionary tales about Texas custom home builders who used cash from new projects to pay for old ones, and it eventually caught up to them, or who cut corners because they managed things poorly from the beginning. If you hire a builder who is here today and gone tomorrow, so many things could go wrong.


if you hire an inexperienced custom home builder

  • Your luxury home could end up costing much, much more than anticipated.
  • Poor scheduling could cause delays, and some contractors could quit.
  • Your project could violate Texas residential building codes, leading to financing headaches, more expense and delays.
  • A contractor distracted by business problems could miss important structural issues
  • The builder could go out of business before your project is completed.
  • You might end up with foundation problems, drainage issues, moisture intrusion or worse.
  • Problems with your build could occur six months after you move in, and the contractor might have disappeared.

what do luxury homes

what buyers are really asking...

Greater square footage, premium materials, desirable locations and unique amenities all have a price tag. When most people ask about price, what they’re really asking is, “are luxury homes a good investment?”

It’s natural to want to know if what you create will keep increasing in value. For many people, their home is their most valuable asset. They build Tyler custom homes to live in, but they want to know when they sell their investment will pay off and their property will be attractive to prospective buyers.

A home that is completely unique, that has the most sought-after styles and amenities will always be more in demand than run-of-the-mill construction. Luxury homes are in demand and there are fewer of them. Building costs and land prices will likely continue to rise, so what you spend to build today is likely a savings over what it will cost if you wait to get started.
