When is the right time to visit a Model Home during your new home search? The answer might surprise, you - it's now!

Regardless of where you are in your home buying journey, if you haven't visited a model home yet, don't wait any longer - the sooner you visit, the easier your search will be!

Our team is here to help throughout the process when you're looking for a new home.

Discover

Visiting a Model Home allows you the opportunity to discover new communities and get answers to questions you have about the home buying & construction process. If you aren't sure where to start, we'll help identify the questions most important to your search!

Guide

Touring a Model Home can sometimes leave you with more questions than answers - that's why we recommend letting our team guide you through.

If you've ever toured model homes from national builders, you know that they spend thousands on upgrades, options & glitzy decor, making a really beautiful showcase home, but also setting very unrealistic expectations for what is included in your purchase.

Omega Model Home's are designed to showcase what we do best - we let our quality craftsmanship speak for itself, include only our most popular options, choose colors that work well with a range of styles, and decorate in a way that helps you truly visualize what living in the home would be like!

Explore

I highly recommend spending time in the communities with our team - take advantage of their offer to show you around, not only will you avoid getting lost visiting communities not visible on map apps yet, but you'll gain valuable insights about the surrounding area as well!

Buying a new home is not the same thing as buying a car, so don't anticipate the same type of sales experience.

Being with a builder rep when you tour homes gives you immediate access to answers and can save you tons of time - based on your feedback, our team can choose the right homes for you to tour and make adjustments to the schedule when you find something you don't like - or love!

Preparing for your Model Home visit

Omega offers new homes in over 18 communities throughout Temple, Belton, Bryan-College Station and Georgetown - so how do you know which model home to visit?

You'll find easy to use filters on our website to help choose exactly which model home to start with!

Quick Step Guide to get started:

  1. See all of our Model Homes, including those under construction, on our contact page, Visit a Model Home.

  2. Click the City menu to choose the city you're looking for a new home in and click submit. This will show you if there is more than one location or not. If there is only one, you've found the right location to start with!

  3.  If there is more than one, click the Price menu to choose the price range that matches your budget.

  4. Maybe you don't know your budget yet or schools are more important to you? Instead of using the City or Price menus, you can click the Additional filters menu to choose other criteria to filter by. The options include Community, School District, Agent, or Garage Count.

If the model home is still under construction, don't worry, the driving directions will take you to their current office - typically located in one of our other model homes. 

You might end up using a combination of filters or just one, don't worry if you aren't sure - once you submit a choice, you can always click start over to change the criteria.

Once you've narrowed the choices down, click on the Model Home to get in touch with our team. It's okay to reach out to more than one rep if two locations match your criteria, each New Home Sales Agent is an expert on the communities they serve and want to help you find the perfect home for you!

Tips for Touring a Model Home

Here are the top tips from our team to make the most of your visit:
