A New Destinction!
We are very proud to announce that OCM BOCES has bestowed on Andrew Martin the honor of being this year’s inductee into the 2019 Career and Technical Education Alumni Hall of Fame! Andrew is the first person to be inducted from the Construction Technology Program since the inception of the Hall of Fame in 2011. Click here for photos and a video of Andrew’s address to the 2019 graduates of the CTE programs.
Thinking of moving a little farther west!
More and more people are looking to move to the Auburn and Elbridge areas. There are some nice developments in Elbridge which you can call us about, but we just found a real nice neighborhood in Auburn where lots are large and some have a view of Owasco Lake! These lots have all utilities and very reasonable lot prices! Some are even walk-out or daylight windowed basement capabilities! Check out the “Keystone” neighborhood in our communities section under “Where to Build”. We even have some photos for you!
Surprise! Surprise! Interest rates had creeped up all last year and were hovering around 5%, with expectations they would continue to increase through 2019. Now, with Treasury Bonds dropping unexpectedly, interest rates have dropped back to 3.50% for a 30 year fixed rate mortgage! If you are thinking of building or remodeling it may be a brief window to move forward to take advantage of these low rates before the trends shift again.
A number of people have called wondering if we were going to be in the 2019 Parade of Homes. Due to scheduling, we deciced to take this year off from the Parade of Homes. We will truly miss seeing and talking to all you folks who attend the event each year. We’ve made many friends over the years. To see photos and information from all our previous Parade of Homes Entries from 2011-2018 click the top line menu item “Parade of Homes” above. You can also learn the about the perks of being a Martin Custom Homes’ Parade buyer. We will be meeting soon at the Home Builders Association to discuss the possibility of a Parade of Homes for 2020. ( I’m hearing that a Baldwinsville Parade is a good possibilty.) Contact us soon if you have an interest in helping design your very own spectacular Parade Home! We will let you know early next month. Dave & Andy Martin
2019 Home & Garden Show
Thanks to all the folks that stopped by our booth at the Home & Garden Show March 15-17, 2019. I felt that the new building was bright and really perfect for the show. Hope you enjoyed the show as well. We look forward to speaking to some of you again soon. Please give us a call if we can do anything for you!
"We're just as friendly after the build, as we are in the beginning!"
What separates Martin Custom Homes from the other builders? Call it old school if you like, but at Martin Custom Homes we feel that certain features shouldn’t cost extra. Attention to detail, although hidden from sight behind walls, is just as/or more important than features that are readily visible. Learn more
We can tell you a lot about ourselves, but it’s better for you to hear it from clients we’ve built homes for. Read here what a few of our customers had to say. We also have no problem giving you names of any of our many clients, so you may speak to them for assurance that you are talking to the right builder. Learn more
