General FAQs

We have been building high-quality homes since 1989.

We are an accredited member of the Alberta New Home Warranty Program. You can learn more about our warranty coverage here.

A spec home is a home already under construction where we have selected the lot and floor plan. Spec homes are available for purchase at any point in the construction process from stakes through to completion. Depending on the stage of construction, interior selections may be finalized, or if purchased early enough you may be able to make changes. A spec home offers many of the benefits of a pre-sale home with a shorter build time and, in most cases, fewer decisions/appointments throughout.

A quick possession home is another word for spec home; however, typically a quick possession home will be further along in the construction process so you can move in sooner. Quick possession homes are a great option for those who want a new home without the hassle and time commitment that sometimes comes with purchasing a pre-sale home, and/or for those who need a home quickly, or in some cases, immediately.

When building a pre-sale home, you choose the lot, floor plan, upgrades and interior selections for your new home. Early on in the process, you will have an opportunity to make minor changes to your floor plan if desired. Pre-sales are a great option for those who have or want time (8 months up to a year) before they move into their new home. Pre-sale home buyers must also be prepared to attend a number of appointments throughout the process to choose interior specifications and selections that suit their budget and taste.

This varies depending on the home's stage of construction and can be anywhere from next month to 7 months from now. Please inquire the Area Manager for the home or community you're interested in and our Area Manager can provide you with tentative timelines for all the spec homes we currently have available.

Douglas Homes currently builds in Airdrie, Chestermere, and Cochrane. We have a few communities that will be launching in Calgary next year.

Yes, eventually all our showhomes will be for sale when we are ready to close them. If you are interested in purchasing a showhome, please speak with the Area Manager for that Showhome. They can provide more information and put you on a waiting list to be notified when we are ready to sell.

We have built a number of custom homes over the years, but at this time we are not offering this service. You can, however, make some floorplan modifications when purchasing a pre-sale home, and if a spec home is early enough in construction you may be able to add upgrades and make your own interior selections. Please inquire to learn more.
