Why should I build with Tresidio Homes? What makes Tresidio different?

We pride ourselves on being a highly organized, extremely efficient team that makes the home building process smooth and easy for our customers. We are proponents of technology that enhances the building experience and we use 3D modeling and advanced design software to help our customers see and experience their home before it is built. 

In 2020, Tresidio built 100 gorgeous, unique homes in Boise. That’s small enough to give every buyer the personal attention he or she deserves, but large enough to negotiate great savings that are passed on to our customers. Each of our team members work toward the same goal — to be the best at what we do and create an unforgettable experience for you, our homebuyers.

How much does it cost to build a new home in Idaho?

Since all of our homes are personalized to the customer, there is no set price per square foot. That’s really up to the customer in terms of how much square footage they add onto our floor plans, or how expensive their finishes are. Location can also impact the cost of a home. 

What we can guarantee, though, is a home of exceptional quality and last value no matter the customizations or selected finishes.

Where do you build? Do you only build in specific subdivisions?

We currently build in eight communities across Treasure Valley in Idaho. We only build in communities we develop and do not offer build-on-your-lot homes at this time. 
We can’t wait to meet with you to discuss building your dream home in Boise! If you have any other questions, please get in touch with Kayla at (208) 917-7500 or request more information.

How long will it take to complete my home?

It takes seven to eight months from contract to complete a home. New builds starting now (in August 2021) are scheduled for closing in 2022. At Tresidio Homes, we set realistic expectations for our customers’ building experience, and often exceed them! You will work directly with your Tresidio agent to schedule your groundbreaking, so that you always know where your home is in the construction process. 

Why does it take that long to build a new construction home?

During the pre-construction process, you have the opportunity to choose each detail in your home — from flooring and cabinets to paint colors and fixtures. This process consists of several meetings — including with the architect and designer — and there are big decisions to make, so we give you ample time to feel confident in your choices. After all, it’s easier to make design changes before construction even starts! 

The building process also takes longer than usual because of the high demand and low supply of nearly all building materials. From lumber to appliances, there’s often a backlog from suppliers, which means it takes longer for us to receive these materials, which can impact building timelines. As materials become more widely available, we will likely see shorter construction timelines for new homes.

What is your home building process like?

Streamlined and efficient. Here are the 10 steps that will take your home from contract to completion:

Step 1: Meet with our new construction specialists to choose your lot and floor plan, and get a customized price quote

Step 2: Sign a purchase agreement with us

Step 3: Work with your new construction specialist and architect to finalize your floor plan

Step 4: Meet with the design team to choose finishes

Step 5: Meet with your new construction specialists to finalize pricing and dates

Step 6: Construction begins! We break ground on your new home.

Step 7: Install custom finishes. You are updated every step of the way with photos from your project manager.

Step 8: Closing and Move-In Day!

Step 9: Follow up with any warranty concerns

Step 10: Enjoy the memories in your beautiful new Tresidio home!

Am I allowed to make changes to a home design or floor plan?

Tresidio Homes is a semi-custom builder, which means you have the ability to customize floor plans to meet your wants and needs. For example, you may choose to extend the patio, add a powder room, or expand the garage. Our architects work from a collection of floor plans, but we have never built the same home twice! You can begin customizing your unique, one-of-a-kind home right on our website with our interactive floor plans. 

What happens in the Design Studio?

In the Design Studio, our experienced design team will guide you through the streamlined and fun process of selecting from thousands of beautiful finishes! You will choose nearly every detail in your home, including kitchen cabinets, flooring, interior paint, light fixtures, and more. Our state-of-the-art, 1,700-square-foot studio offers you all choices in one place that you can touch and feel vs. shopping online or rushing around to multiple stores.

Do you have any homes currently for sale?

Not everyone has the time to experience the process of building a home, or maybe you just want to see the style and quality you can expect from Tresidio Homes. Fortunately, we have homes for sale at various stages of construction. You can find our current homes for sale on our Quick Move-In page.

If you are interested in finding one of our homes in a specific community, please visit our Communities page.

Do I need a REALTOR® to buy a Tresidio home?

No. You are not required to have a real estate agent to purchase or build a home with us. However, if you are represented by an agent that referred you to Tresidio Homes, we will pay them a referral fee when your home closes.

Can you help me find financing?

We keep a constant eye on mortgage programs and interest rates. We understand that everyone’s situation is unique, so we have tailored our financing to provide the best possible scenario for you. Feel free to contact us for more information.
