One thing that you will find with the Stanley Martin Custom Home company is that we dovetail one Stanley Martin production. We have totally separate processes, we have separate employees, separate ways of delivering the homes to have an enjoyable experience but one thing our customers have come to appreciate is based on the largesse of Stanley Martin we’re able to get a buying power that is second to none in the industry. We have national accounts we have in our main office and Reston we have people who all they do is do large buying deals on commodities so for instance on the quartz or the granite while some builders may be working with various trades their unit costs will be significantly higher than Stanley Martin for two reasons one is we’re buying thousands and thousands of homes a year from these trades, that’s number one so it’s just huge volume two is based on our largesse we have always, and this goes back to 1966 paid our bills on time. We’re highly liquid well capitalized and trades want to work with builders who pay them on time in good times and in bad and they certainly want to work with builders who have great buying power. So in summary largesse of Stanley Martin we dovetail wind that largesse but we box it up if you will in a way in a boutique manner so it resonates with our custom home buyers.
So one of the advantages among many that we have as a boutique builder who dovetails on Stanley Martin production is Stanley Martin as a large entity has many many furnished model homes throughout the metropolitan area and many of our customers enjoy the the ability to look at a plan that they may see you online but then go visit a community and viscerally get a sense for the space. One other advantage is they’ll be able to see what professional designers have done to the space in terms of decorating and different features to give you an idea of other things that you can do. Stanley Martin as a large builder we again we dovetail on that, we do modify as our customers may request any of the plans whether it’s the inside of the home whether it’s the exterior of the home we want to make sure that we get the plan right for our customer so quite often we’ll take a plan and by the time you see the final product you’re like wow how did that plan evolve into the plan that we’re building!
All right so I’m gonna just chat a little bit about plats and why they’re so important. When we are trying to support you during the sales phase a plat will give us the ability to determine exactly what size home will fit on your property so before your first meeting it’s a really good idea to send a plat over so we can get it to our back office. Generally speaking our back office will analyze your plat they’ll scale it so if it’s not to scale they’ll scale it and they’ll let us know at your first meeting exactly what size home will fit on the property. Now there could be easements and there could be other factors that we may not be aware of at the beginning stages of the transaction that can affect the building envelope but without a plat we’re kind of swinging in the dark so if you have one shoot it over it’ll really help us help you in the process.
