4 Myths of New Home Buying, Busted

If you’ve started your new home journey, you’ve probably heard one or two stories about financial woes or difficult builders, and everything in between. But at Hubbell Homes, we do things differently. We’re here to debunk the common myths that might be making you hesitate to embark on one of life’s most rewarding journeys.

When you work with a team that cares about your new home just as much as you do, you can be sure that the path to move-in day is smooth, easy, and above all else, enjoyable. As an award-winning Des Moines home builder, our biggest passion is making people happy — and we promise that this is what you get when you trust us to build your home. Take a look at the myths you’ve probably come across, and how they never have (and never will) apply here:

Myth #1: It's a difficult process.

When it comes to your new home, it really does “take a village.” At Hubbell Homes, we’ve mapped out the entire home building process, step-by-step, so that you have all the information you need to get started.

Most of all, our team is just as caring as we are knowledgeable and skilled, so you can rest assured that any concern or question will always be at the top of our priority list. Tyler, our Online Sales Specialist, is available to answer all your questions. And our onsite sales specialists have years of real estate experience and are experts in helping the dream of homeownership become a reality.

Myth #2: You get left in the dark.

Every single day, our team comes into work with one goal in mind: to build remarkable homes for new homeowners like you! Our mission is to lead with craftsmanship and service, and we are available to you throughout the process, and even after closing. 

If something goes wrong, you’re never just left alone. In fact, another one of our core values is problem solving, and if you have a problem after you move in, it’s our job (and pleasure) to take care of it through our warranty offering. 

Myth #3: You can't afford it.

It’s normal to assume that your “dream home” would be too expensive to afford. We don’t blame you. But the best thing about working with Hubbell Homes is that the home you’ve always imagined yourself spending your days in is entirely achievable, and we have a team dedicated to leading you along the way. Read more about why it’s still a great time to buy a new home.


Myth #4: New homes are “cookie-cutter.”

In reality, it’s almost impossible to have the exact same home as your neighbor. Each of our homeowners has the Hubbell Homes Design Studio available to them, along with the help of our professional in-house designers Stacey and Bailey, to personalize your home to your unique taste. Choose your front elevation, paint colors, cabinets, flooring, tiles, fixtures, and more. Your home can truly be one of a kind. 

Plus, with various home products available, like the Discovery and Urban collections, you can choose your style of home based on your lifestyle. Do you need more space for a growing family? Or do you prefer the low maintenance of a downtown townhome? The choice is yours. 

If you are ready for your next great adventure, Hubbell Homes has your perfect home match waiting for you. Forget about the myths that you’ve heard; with us, everything’s completely different. Put your new home in our hands, and we’ll take all the stress off of yours.
