Frequently Asked Questions


How often will I get to see my home's progress?

At HQ Home Sights, we understand the excitement of watching your dream home come to life. That's why we offer a convenient app that keeps you connected to the construction progress. You can expect to receive weekly updates with photos of your home's development, ensuring you're always in the loop and part of the journey. Our open communication approach allows you to ask questions, provide feedback, and stay informed every step of the way.

I already have my home plans. Will Home Sights build them?

At Home Sights, we exclusively build homes based on our carefully crafted floor plans. Our team is extremely knowledgeable about the plans we build, from new home consultants to project managers and everyone in between. This is beneficial because it reduces the likelihood of field changes, unexpected costs, or delays in construction. 

We understand the importance of personalization. While we do not construct external plans, we provide flexibility within our designs to allow homeowners to tailor their homes to meet their unique needs and preferences. Our commitment is to deliver a home that seamlessly combines our expertise with your vision, ensuring a residence that truly feels like yours.

Do you offer a home warranty?

Absolutely! All of our homes are backed by Hunter Quinn Homes' warranty policy, which features a 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty. You can learn more about our warranty and submit a service request on the Hunter Quinn Homes website.

How is financing different for a new build?

Financing for a new build with a construction loan differs in several key aspects. Unlike traditional mortgages, construction loans involve a two-phase process, with the initial phase covering the construction period and transitioning to a traditional mortgage once the build is complete. You can learn more about financing options by contacting one of our New Home Consultants.

Can I customize my home's floor plan?

Yes, at HQ Home Sights, we offer a range of customization options to tailor your home to your needs and preferences. While the basic layout of our home plans are in place, we provide various structural options and can accommodate small changes to personalize your home. Our team will work closely with you to ensure that your vision is reflected in the final design.

What is included in the base price of the home?

Our base price includes site prep, lot prep, construction, and essential features and finishes. Rather than imposing unnecessary built-in features in our base pricing, we provide the flexibility for each individual to personalize their home based on their unique needs. Upgrades and additional features are available at an extra cost. Learn more about what's included in our home pricing.

Do you offer energy-efficient features?

Yes, we offer a range of energy-efficient features and products to help you save on utility costs and reduce your environmental impact. Our team can provide you with more information about our energy-efficient offerings.

Where can I build with Home Sights?

Currently, we offer our Build On Your Lot services throughout the Lowcountry's tri-county area (Charleston County, Berkeley County, and Dorchester County). We also build further inland in Orangeburg and Clarendon counties. We're in the process of expanding our services to other areas in South Carolina, so if you have land in another location, please don't hesitate to reach out. We'd love the opportunity to assess your property and determine if Home Sights can build your dream home.

Do you have land available for sale?

Home Sights does not sell land directly. However, Hunter Quinn Homes builds throughout the Lowcountry and may have an upcoming project in your desired location that you could personalize to meet your needs.

To help with the land search, we offer a convenient search tool using the MLS that allows you to find lots for sale in our area. We can also connect you with a real estate agent who can help you find land to move forward with your home building process. Please reach out for more information.

Can I build any of your plans on my lot?

The home you can build on your lot will depend on the size, layout, and environmental conditions of your land. We offer a variety of floorplans to suit different sized lots and design preferences. Our team would be glad to come assess your lot and determine which plan would work best for you!

I want a custom home. If I build one of your plans, will my house look the same as others?

The outcome of your home truly depends on the choices made during the design process and which structural options are selected. Our homes are not cookie-cutter designs, and we allow for a lot of freedom to personalize your dream home. However, we do have guardrails in place to protect the integrity of the construction and to avoid delays and costs. This ensures that your home is not only unique but also built to the highest standards of quality and craftsmanship.
