According to Zillow, much of new home construction is at the higher tier of the market, shutting out first-time and even move-up buyers in many markets. Price Hightower focuses on closing this gap and bringing lasting quality and value to Birmingham homebuyers. What sets Tower Homes apart from other builders in the area, is the quality of construction, energy efficiency, and lots of other features included in the base price of our homes. Tower Homes has been building homes in the Birmingham area for over 25 years.

Most Homebuyers Prefer New vs. Used

The study found that many new construction buyers are drawn to the concept of a home’s “newness” and the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the appliances and other features of the home have not been previously used. In fact, around half of buyers said everything in the home being brand new was the top reason they purchased a new construction home. Tower Homes offers a one year warranty with exceptional customer care. “ We have our warranty department in-house and respond within a 24-hour window to all of our warranty requests.
