Your Go-To Homebuilder Near Smithville, MO

Here at Hearthside Homes, we understand building a home from the ground up can be a daunting task! From finding the perfect school district to finalizing all of the material selections, it’s certainly a sizeable project. Going right along with this, you’ll also need to hire a builder that’s capable of making this a reality! The builder you hire should have a team of experts and passionate professionals that truly know what they’re doing!

With our team at Hearthside Homes, we strive to give you just that! Since we started building homes back in 1987, we’ve been honored to have had the opportunity to work with hundreds of homebuyers throughout the entire Northland, including those near Smithville, MO. If you’re familiar with the area, you’re probably more than aware of the rapid expansion towns north of the river have witnessed in recent years.

On this webpage, we’ll provide you with some helpful information as to why the Northland is the perfect choice for any prospective homebuyer! In addition, we’ll walk through some of the communities we work in and our 3-step process that’s centered around making an easy-to-follow process for our clients!

New Home Construction in Just 3-Steps

Since Day #1, our goal at Hearthside Homes has been to make a stress-free process that keeps the buyer involved every step of the way. With a project that can easily span over 6 months, it’s important to have an updated timeline and an understanding of what will be done at each stage. With this in mind, we’ve divided the entire building process into a simple 3-steps that gets you from clicking the “GET PRICING” button above to signing the closing papers.


Step #1: Design

To get in touch with us, simply give our team a call at (816) 781-0234 or fill out the form here. Once signed on, you’ll work with one of our homebuilding design professionals. They’ll assist you in finalizing everything from the cabinetry to the front door color.

Step #2: Build

Once you’ve selected all of your materials, it’s time to make that vision come to fruition. In total, the home construction process spans roughly 6 months. Through your production dashboard, you’ll be able to see updated timelines and know exactly what will be done when. 

step #3: Move-In

It’s closing day! We love seeing the smiles on our client’s faces when they receive their keys. We’ll do a walkthrough to make sure everything is pristine and then it’s on to the title company. Congratulations, you’re now the proud owner of a Hearthside Home!

Deciding Between New Construction and a Resale

For many prospective homebuyers in Smithville and throughout the Northland, it’s a tough decision between purchasing a new construction home and a resale. While both can be terrific options for anyone currently in the market for a new home, there are certainly pros and cons to each. Considering this is a question we get asked quite often, we decided to compile a list of a few reasons why new construction can be the perfect fit for you!

– Location, Location, Location: Before embarking on any substantial remodel project, you’ll want to make sure the investment is going to be worth it in the long-run. With this, an important concept to keep in mind is not having the most expensive home in the neighborhood. In short, remodeling a home too much for the area it’s located in can easily lead to you not getting all of your money back!

– Less Maintenance: Assuming the builder is experienced, a new home should present you with less maintenance. For instance, most quality builders will offer a one-year warranty plan to ensure no hiccups occur as you move in. Meanwhile, with older homes, there’s always going to be that chance of new touch-up’s and repairs popping up.
