Is Agile Homes licensed to build homes in Oregon?
Yes, we are licensed to build homes in Oregon. Our Oregon license number is CCB-194963. We have been licensed in Oregon since 2011 and have built many homes within Ontario city limits and also in Malheur County. All homes built in the state of Oregon require an additional $5,000 fee due to additional permitting and trade fees and costs
What costs are included in your “build on your lot/land” prices?
The prices include up to $5,000.00 in permit costs as well as all construction costs. Front landscaping including automatic underground sprinklers, sod, (5) one-gallon shrubs and (1) ten-gallon tree is also included. The base price does include all exterior painting, steps, and a 20’ concrete driveway.
What costs are not included in your “build on your lot/land” prices?
We offer a free site visit to estimate those costs and discuss options. Site conditions include well, septic, driveway, and power.
I own or would like to build on a lot with substantial slope. How does this affect pricing?
The prices assume a relatively flat lot. Steps in foundation, retaining walls and other costs associated with sloped lots are not included in the base price. Agile Homes is very familiar with building on these sites, however, they do involve more cost than building on a flat lot. As with all of our pricing, Agile Homes pricing for incremental increases due to site conditions is very competitive.
I own bare land outside the city limits. Can Agile build priced plans on my land? How does the pricing work?
Yes, we do build homes outside the city limits. Landscaping is removed and results in a $2500.00 credit. Many lots outside the city limits will need a well, septic system, driveway, and power from the road to the homesite. These costs must be added to the total purchase price. Agile Homes will manage these items without charging any markup.
Does Agile Homes build detached shops and garages?
Agile Homes builds great shops or garages. You can chose from simple finishes and basic electrical to fully textured, heating systems, attic storage, living quarters, etc. Prepriced plans are coming soon, until then, the design built process will be used.
What makes Agile different from other builders?
Agile Homes is locally owned and operated. The owners, Mike Smith and Craig Smith, grew up in New Plymouth and are now living/raising their families in Fruitland, ID. Agile Homes believes in long-term relationships with home buyers, employees, and subcontractors. We do not use a “lowest bidder” method to select subcontractors. In fact, Mike and Craig have had relationships with most of our subcontractors for over a decade. This team approach to building is substantially different than many builder’s philosophies. Agile Homes takes pride in providing upgraded finishes and features at a very competitive price point. Many upgrades such as custom cabinetry, granite countertops, Energy Smart construction, etc are not included in the base price with other builders.
