Custom Home Builder Anderson Homes LLC

The largest local home builder in Sequim and Port Angeles since 1981 is Anderson Homes, LLC.  Rick Anderson, the founder of Anderson Homes, has built over 400 homes since 1981 in the Sequim and Port Angeles areas.  I personally interviewed many of his past clients now living in their custom homes, and I’ve never seen such happy homeowners.  I am certain that Rick Anderson has the highest customer satisfaction of any home builder in the state of Washington, but certainly on the Olympic Peninsula.  You’ve got to understand that these homeowners aren’t just happy with their homes–they are ecstatic.  They are like kids bubbling with enthusiasm when they walked me through their homes and showed me the features, the architecture, and the quality of the construction.

Monte and Patricia are ecstatic.   “This was our first time having a home built, and we were lucky having Rick Anderson build our home.  The quality of the work is great.  The whole process went very well with Rick Anderson.  Our home was finished on schedule, actually two days before the deadline, and our moving trucks arrived just as we planned.  And Rick finished our home at the contract price with no extras.”

Anyone who has had a home built before may know how significant this is.  Many homes are not finished on schedule, and most contractors use various cost-plus contract options, so the price can increase once or several times during construction.  This is far more common than most people realize.

Rick Anderson describes their homes, “A custom home is simply a home built the way you want it.”  While most people tend to focus on buying an existing home because they can move in almost immediately, the disadvantage is that they buy someone else’s dream, not their own.  Imagine being able to have your own kitchen built exactly the way you would dream the perfect kitchen should be, with all the counter space you want, maybe marble countertops, the cabinets you love, the kitchen island arranged so you can chop and cut conveniently, and the appliances that make cooking and baking a pleasure.  And you choose the the light fixtures so you will have the bright lighting you need when you want it.   This is why many people look at the existing home inventory and decide to have their own home built.

Stan and Sherry purchased a lot in Port Angeles overlooking the Strait of Juan de Fuca with a stunning water view.  “We interviewed four builders in the area, and we knew from the first meeting with Rick Anderson that we wanted him to build our home.  He was upfront with us, honest about the costs and he explained in detail how it worked, and we really appreciated that.”

Anderson Homes is dedicated to building homes of uncompromising quality, superior design and enduring value.  “Our commitment to our homeowners, however, is the heart and soul of our business. When you choose Anderson Homes as your home builder, each of our employees will approach the construction of your home as if it were their own. Dedication to superior craftsmanship and a commitment to our customers has made us the choice of over 400 homeowners.”

If you’re buying a Sequim or Port Angeles home, or getting ready to have your retirement home built, you can wait this market out, or you can take advantage of the lowest interest rates any of us have seen in our adult lifetimes. Under 5% for a 30 year fixed rate mortgage? Are you serious? Yes.  I’ve written elsewhere about Why Building a Home Now is Smart, and that it’s A Buyer’s Market in Sequim, and I wrote articles about Low Interest Rates and The Perfect Storm, but who would ever have guessed that interest rates would be at levels as low as half a century ago?

One of the big issues for anyone who is going to have a home built is how to find and hire a builder.  There actually are several traps for the unwary, traps that could cost a person a lot of money, not to mention stress.  You can watch a few short videos on these topics, including What About Discount Home Builders?, Change Orders and Extras, and Price Per Square Foot.
