Catskill Farms currently builds in the following counties:
Dutchess: Polished. Affluent. Vibrant
Ulster (mainline): Good towns. Well-established weekend activities. Film Festivals. Food choices.
Ulster (rural): Resembling the positive attributes of Sullivan County, just a little closer to the go-to towns of Woodstock, New Paltz, Stone Ridge. Skiing at Hunter and Wyndam is also within range.
Sullivan: Rural. Low cost. Pretty. More lakes and rivers than other counties. Diversity of land opportunity exceeds other counties. Big bang for your buck. Where we live.

The uniqueness of what we are offering revolves around how the financing of the house works during construction.
Basically, we sign a contract, then Catskill Farms pays for the custom collaboration and construction. Our client pays when the house is finished and is move-in ready. We have an awesome track record of completing our homes before our contracted deadline and on budget.
When you drive around upstate, there seems to be an endless supply of land to choose from. Nothing could be further from the truth. Good land in all 3 counties we build in is hard to come by. I personally spend a lot of time researching, scouting, walking, and evaluating land--rejecting 9 out of 10 pieces before I even get out of my jeep.
Good land is hard to come by, and we never miss a good piece.
Absolutely no existing home purchase can compare to our homes'
lack of monthly maintenance surprises, which can easily approach $5,000 - $10,000 per year in a typical used home.
