Why De Young

Extreme Differences

Our Promise: Trusted quality. Trusted innovation. Trusted journey. If you’re like most people, buying a home will be the single largest purchase you make in your life. We get that. It’s something we especially appreciate as a family-owned business, committed – as you are – to making sure your hard-earned dollars bring maximum value. Which is why it means so much to us that you would consider De Young Properties as one of your choices. You’ll no doubt see many similarities among today’s top homebuilders, but make no mistake: all homes are not created equal. At De Young Properties, we are all about you, our valued customer, and our unique qualities that allow us to stand apart in the industry – what we call our Three De Young Distinctions!

These Three De Young Distinctions are just a snapshot of the reasons so many local homebuyers trust De Young Properties with the building of their new home. There are many more reasons, of course, and we encourage you to discover them by visiting our communities and talking with our dedicated professionals – each part of the De Young Properties team that’s proudly been Building Your Dreams for Three Generations.

Homes are built to last, to collect memories over time that truly make it “home". That’s why we use only the most durable, top-quality materials engineered to deliver high performance for the long term. Every home we build also incorporates forward-thinking construction science and technologies to ensure superior strength, efficiency and longevity. On top of this, each home goes through our in-depth quality control check and is backed by one of the best new home warranties in the industry.

When it comes to smart, modern floorplans, De Young Properties is in a class of our own. Each space is thoughtfully designed and crafted for the best homeowner experience. With our two generously-featured signature floorplan series, we can provide a plan to perfectly fit your unique needs and budget. Our De Young SmartHome plans reflect the leading edge in energy efficiency, home science technologies, quality of life and sustainability. It should come as no surprise, then, that De Young Properties has received multiple Gold Nugget Awards for innovative design and advanced building science technology!

From our first handshake to the presentation of keys to your new home – and far beyond – you’ll appreciate the professional, informative and attentive homebuying experience we provide. Our goal: making the homebuying process simple, streamlined and enjoyable. We promise to keep you updated throughout the progress of your new home’s construction with our industry leading SmartJourney Experience. Plus, thanks to our advanced online capabilities, it’s easy to personalize your new home from the comfort of your sofa. As a three-generation local homebuilder, building over 8,000 homes in the Central Valley, we have a deep appreciation for the significance of each “home” – and we will be by your side throughout your journey.
