Building On Your Lot

As of April 2024, Agile Homes will no longer offer the option to build on privately owned lots, allowing us to concentrate on our existing and upcoming developments. While we understand this may impact your plans, we are committed to assisting you in finding the perfect home within our communities. Please know this decision isn't set in stone, and future opportunities to build on your own lot may arise. We value your understanding and support, and encourage you to contact us with any questions or for further information.

Below are the most common inquires we get about building with Agile and building a home on your lot.

  1. 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.

  2. 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 $4500.00 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.

  3. Does Agile Homes build detached shops and garages?

    Agile Homes builds great shops or garages. You can choose from simple finishes and basic electrical to fully textured. 


  4. 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.
