New Construction in Vancouver

By Julia Robertson, April 28, 2020

Just before the declared Pandemic, I toured a number of new construction homes in Vancouver and Camas, Washington. New construction is booming in the Couve’ and Camas! I had a different experience with each builder. Some were casual, some were very organized, others are more of a grass roots style, and each have a different level of quality build. Here is my list of builders and my thoughts on each. The client I was touring with had a budget of $450-650k, so this information is only based on my own experience for these specific builders and my buyer. Residential construction is now open again in Washington!

David Weekly Homes

Price- $600’s and up

Locations- Felida/Salmon Creek & East Vancouver. Herron Grove neighborhood. Nestled in an established neighborhood, across the street from Salmon Creek walking trails. Some of the homes were up against a busier street.

Service- Friendly and accommodating. The best experience with with Eric on the West side near Felida, where we were engaged and really liked the model home.

Style/Quality- Higher end finishes, contemporary craftsman and cottage styles.

Holt Homes

Price- High $500’s and up

Location- Windust Meadows, Camas. Nice area. Most of the best lots were already taken.

Service- Casual, but friendly. Jake helped us. Kind of an odd experience at first. The addresses were not on google yet and we had a difficult time finding available homes or knowing which ones I could show. Definitely needed someone on site to walk you around.

Style/Quality- Contemporary Craftsman. High end finishes. Several single level floorplans, great floor plans in general. Small yards, some had a retaining wall behind the house.

Pacific Lifestyle Homes

Price- $500’s and up

Location- Amber Glen, Northwest Vancouver. Nestled in a grove of trees off the road. You feel like you’re in the country as you start to drive into the subdivision.

Service- Friendly, organized. Office was very busy with many buyers touring.

Style/Quality- Craftsman/Contemporary. Mid to high end. Nice floor plans.

SVN CONSTRUCTION INC

Price- $400’s and up

Location- Hazel Dell. Flat no trees, a lot of homes smashed into a small piece of land against a busy street.

Service- Helpful. No one on site, but some homes were left unlocked because work was being done on some of the homes.

Style/Quality- Contemporary Craftsman/Modern. Mid to higher end finishes. These were great homes, but no place for guests to park on street. Homes were packed into the street. Also difficult to find because the addresses were not on google yet.

Toll Brothers

Price- $640’s and up

Location- Camas Meadows. Just above Camas Meadows Golf course next to gated communities with million + homes. Near Lacamas Lake. Great location near excellent schools.

Service- Helpful, Organized. Sales office. Suzie or Ken are on site to help with clients. Th

Style/Quality- Cottage, Contemporary, Traditional. High end with custom options. Nice floorplans with basement options.
