Finding the Right Builder

First things first, you want to set yourself up for success by partnering with the right builder. If you want to build the home of your dreams, you need a builder who values transparent communication, has a proven history of excellence, and can expertly manage your funds.

Abbey Platinum makes beautiful starter homes at different levels. We try very hard to make your money stretch as far as it possibly can. We build where you want to live. We invest and build in communities across central Alberta, like Red Deer, Penhold, Blackfalds, Lacombe and Sylvan Lake. Whether it’s a garage in the backyard or a legacy home, Abbey Platinum Master Built is a sound choice.

Location

Red Deer is the perfect city for young professionals and new families looking to settle down and plant their roots. In so many ways, Red Deer is an exquisite city that is really a giant park and river delta. The best part? Purchasing a new home in Red Deer will cost much less than other major Albertan cities.

If you have a choice, choose a smaller community where the cost of living is less. Abbey Platinum builds custom luxury homes, spec homes, and a rental division to help set up a rental home to live in while you wait for your custom home to be built.

Base Cost + What’s Included

There’s no two ways around it: buying a home is expensive. Finding a home that is reflective of your needs at a reasonable price can feel impossible, especially when the housing market is saturated with endless options that just don’t fit.

When you build a new Red Deer home with Abbey Platinum, there are no hidden surprises. The base cost of your home includes all new appliances, luxurious finishes, landscaping, and more. Abbey Platinum prioritizes energy efficiency, so we use state-of-the-art materials to enhance your home’s longevity for years to come.

Home Design

Abbey Platinum makes beautiful starter homes and has a large catalogue of spec homes to choose from. From sprawling acreage estates to lovely bungalows, we truly design every type of home you can imagine.

The best part? Our spec and quick possession homes are customizable to your needs. Want to move the laundry upstairs? No problem. Need a larger kitchen and have a more ‘open concept’ look? Absolutely. With 50 years of building experience, Abbey Platinum’s master builders are up to the challenge.

The Housing Market

New home buyers are facing a new level of adversity when it comes to purchasing a home— interest rates have skyrocketed in the latter half of 2023. For many, many years, Albertans could expect to pay an interest rate of 2%. But now? You will likely be quoted around 5-6%.

Finances can be complicated which is why Abbey Platinum Master Built can recommend a number of mortgage brokers and mortgage specialists to assist you for accurate information and a trouble free approval.

Saving up for your first home is difficult, period. Our advice? Be careful with your purchases, be aware of your debt ratio and most importantly: don’t lose hope. Custom home builders, like Abbey Platinum, are more equitable than the average builder. We are well aware of the strain today’s housing market and rising interest rates are affecting homeowners.
