Make your home yours
One of the best parts about building a brand-new home is the ability to truly make it your own. From porch lights to paint colors, our wide selection of customizable standard features and available upgrades allow you to design a one-of-a-kind Challenger home to fit your tastes, your lifestyle, and your budget.
Delightful by Design
Once you finalize your floor plan and home site, it’s time to have your Design Consultation. This meeting, typically held at either our Design Studio or at your neighborhood’s model home, is where we help you start making design selections and answer any questions you may have. And while some homebuilders view the design process as a way to up-sell or over-sell customers by employing associates on commission, the salaried design professionals at Challenger Homes are dedicated to helping you meet your needs, wants, and budget.
Our Design Studio Process
You’re only seven steps away from customizing the Challenger home of your dreams:
Review Floor Plan & Contract: Our Design team will review your selected floor plan along with any additional options added at the time of your contract.
Lighting & Electrical Options: From entryway to master bathroom, determine which type of lighting best fits your needs while showcasing your home. Plus, it’s much easier to install electrical wiring before your new home is built, so you can make those decisions now!
Exterior Options: Choose the exterior color palette that suits your tastes best.
Kitchen Options: Select your kitchen cabinets, countertops, hardware, backsplash, plumbing, and more.
Flooring Options: Choose your carpet style and color along with any tile, vinyl, or laminate wood you’d like installed.
Interior Trim: Select the interior paint, doors, hardware, windowsills, stair rails, and other interior trim options to add the final polish to your new home.
Finalize all Selections: Sign-off on all of your personalized selections.
Why Buy New
Trying to decide if buying a new home is right for you? Here are the reasons why building a new home in Colorado instead of purchasing a previously owned one may be best:
Don’t want to be stuck with a previous homeowner’s preferences? From floor plans, to structural options, to paint colors, to flooring, building a new home allows for much more customization.
Thanks to better building standards, new materials, and higher-rated insulation, new homes are automatically more energy efficient than previously owned ones—and the energy saved translates to lower utility bills for you.
A new home allows you to pick the neighborhood, community, or enclave that’s right for you: not to mention your perfect home site.
Unlike new homes, previously owned homes almost never have a warranty. A new home warranty, like the kind provided by Challenger Homes, will give you much-welcome peace of mind. However, unlike many other new home builders, we keep our warranties in-house, so you can rest assured that the same people who build your home stand behind any fixes or maintenance that may need to be made.
Compared to homes built decades ago, current building codes help ensure a superior standard of construction.
Better building materials, craftsmanship, and adherence to stricter building codes make new homes much safer than previously owned ones.
When you build a new home, everything is neat and clean, never-before-used.
Brand-new materials and operating systems offer high performance along with low maintenance. For example, a new home can be operated for 20-30% less than a home built prior to 1980.
Elimination of any hazardous materials help make new homes healthier: superior indoor air quality is just one way new homes may improve your family’s health.
Compared to the cramped closets and small storage spaces typically found in older homes, many new Challenger homes feature walk-in closets and plenty of dedicated storage space.
While many older homes were designed with tight hallways and boxy layouts, new homes typically feature open floor plans that help maximize your livable square footage.
Our close relationship with PenTrust®, our preferred lender, means they have the ability to understand your unique situation, educate you on your financing options, arrange the necessary financing, work around your closing deadlines, and deliver a superior customer experience.
The greatest value appreciation of a home typically occurs in the first five to eight years after it is built, which means buying new will allow you to take advantage of this accelerated equity.
Proud To Serve Those Who Serve
With conveniently-located communities near Peterson and Schriever Air Force bases and Fort Carson, a substantial amount of our homebuyers are also military service members. In fact, Colorado Springs is one of the most military-friendly areas in the country and one of the most desired assignments for active duty—not to mention a popular retirement destination for military veterans. We’re proud to provide the quality, value, and lifestyle our men and women in uniform prefer, and we’re happy to show our appreciation for their service whenever possible.
Challenger Homes deeply appreciates the commitment and sacrifice our armed forces make for our great country. As part of our mission to make life better and as a thank you for your service, we offer the largest military incentives of any new home builder in the area. Contact us today to learn about our current incentives for active military members and veterans.
