A number of upgrades and options are available with each plan and the Model Homes Center gives customers an opportunity to experience some of the plans and options. The Design Center makes it possible for customers to make design choices on-site rather than visiting multiple separate vendors. A design specialist will meet with customers to help guide selection of colors, finishes, and fixtures and to make the design process personalized and easy.
Design services are part of the homebuilding project package at no additional cost to the home buyer. An onsite Design Specialist will help the client put together a finished product that is attractive and expresses the buyer’s unique personality, lifestyle, and preferences. The Design Center makes it easier for the home buyer to visualize the final package with all choices in one location. It’s also much less stressful than visiting multiple vendors. This service is especially valuable for first time home buyers. The design services also helps the buyer understand and manage costs with one stop shopping.
The Compass Way
“The Compass Way expresses Compass Homes’ commitment to helping our customers build a quality home on time and on budget. We will guide our customers through the building process and keep our promise to make it easy to build your home your way on your land.”
Pre-construction assistance is how we practice The Compass Way. We make the home building experience easy and enjoyable. The Compass Homes pre-construction services team works with clients to understand their needs and requirements and translate them into a design that best meets those needs. Assessments developed for Compass Homes help identify lifestyle and personality factors that match needs and to design styles. We maintain a library of plans that can be customized to meet customer needs. Both plans and elevations can be modified to create efficient, workable designs. A number of upgrades and options are available with each plan and the Model Homes Center gives customers an opportunity to experience some of the plans and options.

Making the homebuilding process as easy as possible and providing communication and customer service throughout the project makes Compass Homes different from other home builders. Compass Homes’ building services can be summarized in a five step “on your land” homebuilding process:
- Individual lot selections assessment and purchase assistance
- Home placement consultation
- Design assistance and planning
- On site design selection
- Ongoing customer construction support and communication
Compass Homes’ project management services include all coordination with sub-contractors. In addition to providing daily reports on progress, the on site manager will also coordinate resources, secure permits and coordinate inspections, and trouble shoot unanticipated issues with the site and with sub-contractors. At the conclusion of construction, a punch list walk through will be conducted and any final issues will be identified and completed to the owner’s satisfaction. This is what we call The Compass Way and demonstrate our commitment to the values of Accountability and Service. Prompt attention to these final punch list details is another way to differentiate from other builders who sometimes drag out the process to the frustration of the homeowner. Similarly, prompt attention to warranty work after construction, with two warranty follow up calls at six months and twelve months, will increase customer satisfaction and make Compass Homes stand out as the best “on your land” builder.
Builder Trend Portal
Compass Homes offers a distinctive technology that permits the home owner to view and track budgets and schedules through a password protected portal. Since lack of communication, cost overruns, and missed schedules are the main source of dissatisfaction with home builders, this unique tool makes possible transparent communication and partnership between the owner and builder. It’s another reason why home buyers choose Compass Homes.
