Why MorningStar

Ready for a New Home in Raleigh, Chapel Hill or Durham?

Five Reasons to Choose MorningStar:


1. The most home for the money

Our past clients tell us that when they were in the bidding process for a new home in Raleigh, Chapel Hill or Durham, our estimates were almost always in the middle. Never too high. Never too low. Our clients also tell us that when their new home was done, they felt they got the most home for the money...by far the best value in a new custom home! But don't take our word for it! Hear it from our clients in their own words!

3. Local market knowledge spanning decades

We've been building new homes in Raleigh and surrounding local markets for more than 25 years. We know the market here in the Triangle, we know the players and we know the ropes. We live here, we have roots here and we're here to stay. In many ways, we have a personal investment in this market that some other builders of new homes in Raleigh and the surrounding area may not have.

This also means we have an established trade base in and around the Triangle. We work extensively with the local trade base, and over the years, we have have developed a group of experienced trade contractors that build our new homes in Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill the way we want, not the way they want.

4. Understanding of varying lot and site conditions

We are knowledgeable about tough lot or site conditions. We have many of these lots under our belts and feel confident that we can get your home built correctly under these challenging conditions.

We pay attention to lot/site details, such as wells, septic systems, supply line size, pressure tanks, as well as sediment filtration.

We have more than 20 years' experience building on "scattered lots" (lots or homesites not located in a structured neighborhood) This means we understand the unique challenges of building on scattered lots, from lot and site conditions, to surveying and zoning to finding trades that will travel to a "scattered lot" and figuring out how to get power to the home.

5. Full service, right down to interior design

We offer an interior design service with each home. Now that Barbara Lile has joined Mornignstar Homes (licensed professional designer) she can assist you with the color and option selection process. Additionally, we can assist you with furniture selection and purchase, as well as purchase and installation of window treatments and artwork.
