And oh yes, you can buy a JLD Custom home for $600,000.
“We bring custom-styled homes to discerning buyers who would traditionally buy a production-type home,” says Jeff. “That’s how we are able to give better quality construction to a buyer at a better value.”
But make no mistake: JLD Custom homes are extremely energy efficient, green-built homes that fulfill the latest Energy Star requirements. They are brand new homes in a sea of vintage, circa 1940’s and 1950’s cottages, but the designs always fit the neighborhoods they are built in.
“If we build in a neighborhood that has mostly Craftsman-style homes,” says Jeff, “we’re going to build a home that will blend in.”
One aspect of the home-building process turns off many homebuyers: the time it takes to build a home. Some buyers cannot afford to lease or carry two home mortgages while they wait 9 months to a year for completion. JLD Custom Homes’ efficient building methodology has clients in their homes in less than 6 months from signing their contract, many in less than five!
“There was an unmet need in Dallas to build custom-styled homes in a way that took advantage of construction methods you usually see in high-production brands,” says Jeff.
Yet this buyer also wants the same energy efficiency components as the three million dollar consumer. That is one reason why all JLD Custom Homes have sustainable, energy efficient, or otherwise green touches, including R-38 insulation in the attics, tankless water heaters, radiant barrier roof decking, low-e 366 windows, drip irrigation, low flow faucets, 16 SEER A/C, CFL Bulbs, Energy Star appliances and more. All JLD Homes are Energy Star Version 3.0 and Green Built Texas Homes certified, by a third party energy inspector. JLD Custom Homes was awarded the “Excellence in Energy Performance Award” for 2011 by Oncor (Energy Star). They were the only Custom Builder in D/FW to receive this award.
“We are extremely proud that our hard work and dedication to building energy efficient well designed homes was recognized throughout D/FW” said Jeff Dworkin.
Buyers also love that all JLD custom homes are backed with a comprehensive one year home warranty, two year mechanical and a ten year structural warranty. The ten year structural warranty is backed by a third party company, Bonded Builders Home Warranty Group, for buyer’s complete peace of mind.
“Before I started this company, I worked for a large builder and I saw an opportunity to bring custom-styled homes to the Dallas-Fort Worth market”, says Jeff. “But I wanted to build a production home on the timeline with custom home touches.”
With JLD Custom Homes, buyers work with someone who understands every aspect of what goes into a home. Every homebuyer gets to work directly with Jeff Dworkin in creating their dream home, not a super or manager. Though there is increasing building activity in Dallas and at JLD, Jeff maintains that personal touch with every client.
“We stand behind our product 100 percent. All of our homeowners know how to contact me — in the middle of the day, or on the weekend — and they can contact me directly,” says Jeff. JLD Custom Homes is a member of the Dallas Builders Association, Texas Association of Builders, National Association of Homebuilders and Green Built Texas.
