Preferred Builders of North Florida’s has set the new standard in one stop home building. Rather than assemble multiple sub-contractors, Preferred Builder’s utilizes their in house trade’s professionals in order to provide a seamless build process. This saves the home buyer time and money as well as putting all warranty guarantees under the Preferred Group umbrella.

Whether selecting a low cost builder’s package or custom treatments with your personal touch, Preferred Builders can build the home of your dreams with a lower price and better value than many volume builders.
Working in the industry since 1971, Preferred Builders and the Preferred Group of companies are your best options in terms of value, workmanship and local ties that you can count on.

Do you have the dream of building a new home by yourself?

Preferred Builders of North Florida has a DIY (Do it Yourself) home building program in which you control the entire construction process with us managing the build.

You choose the sub-contractors, finishes and any modifications.  We work for you providing knowledge, insight and expertise through the entire build.

You save money over Conventional track built homes in which their design is shoved down your throat.

We help you build the “Home of your Dreams!”

Have you even been to a design studio of some of these large track home builders?  You get their price on the layout of the home that they can build.  Once you “Settle” for their available model then you go to the design studio to choose your finishes and customization.  You will choose things like flooring, cabinets, bathroom trims, counter tops just to name a few.

The SMACK IN THE FACE……….The double deep sink that you saw at Home Depot for $225 is $825 through the builder and the granite counter tops are $6500 compared to the $2200 you would pay to a granite contractor.

With Preferred Builders DIY program you choose those finishes and we do not “MARK THEM UP.” You get the home of your dreams in the budget agreed upon!
