Excellence in building your dreams!

News and Events

Thinking of building? Want to know how? Now is a great time to learn, plan and design a new home with us, virtually!

If you have been thinking about possibly building a new home or want to know if you can, quarantine time is a great time to do it!  VIRTUALLY!  You can speak to us from the comfort of your home via your computer or iPad!  We have many plans and photos here on the website, but we have many, many more plans and photos that are made available in our in person meetings.  These can be shared and discussed with you in this virtual conversation.  Some of the plans on this site have also been built in several different configurations and one of those may interest you.  We can also plan a totally new design.  Give us a call at (315)374-4531 and we can schedule a time to do a virtual meeting that is simple to do.  Get ready now for when the quarantine is over and before interest rates go up! 

Covid-19 Virus and it’s affect on home construction
We are working to bring construction sites to a point where they will be safe to leave for a longer period of time.  We are still doing some work on other sites, but in a very limited capacity,  with one worker per site to maintain social distancing per the guidelines enacted by Governor Coumo,  

Wow – Interest Rates
Interest rates on 30 year mortgage loans with 10% down and no PMI are hovering around  3.375 as of April 6, 2020.  They had gone as low as 2.75% but the Federal programs Fannie May and Freddie Mac intervened to raise them to where they are now.   It looks like they will continue to stay very low for a little while as we go through our isolation stage.  It’s a great time to build a home!   I do not know of any banks that will except an application for a mortgage and give a rate lock unless you have a set of home plans and a contract with a builder.  Present your plans and contract to the bank and you will lock in at that day’s rate.  The planning portion is easy without a huge outlay of money.  These super low rates might not last long so don’t miss out.  Give us a call and we can tell you about the process and what you need to do to make it happen!   

 News Flash!  2020  2021 Parade of Homes

The 2020 Parade of Homes has just been postponed until June 2021.  The wet winter and lack of any major cold spells slowed down the development process to a point where we did not feel that their would be enough time to complete the homes in time for a fall of 2020 Parade.  Martin Custom Homes will still  be in the Parade in June 2021 which will still take place in the new community in  Baldwinsville called “Treybrook”.  It is on the site of the former Seneca Golf Course located on NY State Route 48,  about 1 3/4 miles north of John Glenn Blvd, in the Town of Van Buren.   Lot selection has taken place and our lot will probably be able to have a walk-out basement!  Contact us now if you have interest in being our Parade home buyer with the opportunity to help design your very own, spectacular Parade Home!  You can enjoy the advantages, savings and many perks an MCH Parade Home offers!  To see photos and information from all our previous Parade of Homes Entries from 2011-2018, see the top line menu item Parade of Homes” above. Click here to learn more about the “June 2021 Parade of Homes”!     Dave & Andy Martin

Canceled  2020 Home & Garden Show 
Sorry to say that the 2020 Home & Garden Show has now been canceled due to the Covid-19 coronavirus.  If you were planning on speaking to us there about a new home or other project, we are still available to meet with you by appointment.  The building industry is still going strong and with the super low interest rates, now is a great time to build!  Please give us a call at the phone numbers at the top of this page or send us a note on our contact page to set up a date and time.  We look forward to speaking with you!  

A New Destinction!
We are very proud to announce that
 OCM BOCES has bestowed on Andrew Martin the honor of being this year’s inductee into the 2019 Career and Technical Education Alumni Hall of Fame!  Andrew is the first person to be inducted from the Construction Technology Program since the inception of the Hall of Fame in 2011.  Click here for photos and a video of Andrew’s address to the 2019 graduates of the CTE programs.

Thinking of moving a little farther west!
More and more people are looking to move to the Auburn and Elbridge areas.  There are some nice developments in Elbridge which you can call us about, but we just found a real nice neighborhood in Auburn where lots are large and some have a view of Owasco Lake!  These lots have all utilities and very reasonable lot prices!  Some are even walk-out or daylight windowed basement capabilities!  Check out the “Keystone” neighborhood in our communities section under “Where to Build”.  We even have some photos for you!

"We're just as friendly after the build, as we are in the beginning!"

What separates Martin Custom Homes from the other builders? Call it old school if you like, but at Martin Custom Homes we feel that certain features shouldn’t cost extra. Attention to detail, although hidden from sight behind walls, is just as/or more important than features that are readily visible.  Learn more

The Martins

We can tell you a lot about ourselves, but it’s better for you to hear it from clients we’ve built homes for.   Read here what a few of our customers had to say.  We also have no problem giving you names of any of our many clients, so  you may speak to them for assurance that you are talking to the right builder.    Learn more
