Vulkem 116

Vulkem is the gold standard sealant in the commercial construction industry.  We use it on the exterior of all Home Company homes to seal all of our siding.  Make sure the builder you choose has a similar philosophy that creates minimal future maintenance for your home.


As a homeowner, it’s always a good practice to have a couple of tubes of Vulkem on hand.  Use the “Limestone” color Vulkem to seal cracks in concrete to help keep them from expanding or deteriorating.  Also, use it on siding and foundation walls because it’s paintable.  


Vulkem is available at any home center, typically in the paint section.  You will notice that it’s expensive!  We use between 30 and 60 tubes of it on each Home Company Home.


Happy house hunting & Happy Easter,

New Construction, Now Attractive for First Time Home Buyers

As the real estate market continues to rebound, more people are able to own homes, including first-time homebuyers purchasing new construction, starter homes. Thanks to record-low mortgage rates and new financing programs, it’s the perfect time for first-time home buyers to start looking for a brand new construction home to call their own!

There are differing opinions on what constitutes a "starter home” however, in general, a starter home is something people will live in for around five years, even if they foresee outgrowing it through lifestyle changes. Starter homes should meet most of the criteria of one's forever home, including the right location and the right price.

There are many attractive reasons to purchase your new construction home in the Omaha area. Recently, Omaha was voted in many “Top 10 Cities” categories in various publications…

            No. 1, “The 10 Best Cities to Raise a Family in America,” Movoto Blog

            No. 1, “Best place to raise children in Nebraska,” Bloomberg Businessweek

            No. 3, “Best States for Young Adults,”

No. 6, “Most Secure Places to Live in the U.S. (for Large Metro Area of 500,000 or More Residents)” Farmers Insurance Group


Why Now? Renting Versus Owning...

The biggest benefit will be able to take advantage is the ability to put money toward a purchase they can call their own, as opposed to paying someone else's mortgage when they rent. A new construction, starter home offers things that renting simply cannot provide…

Ability to personalize the home (painting, decorating, gardening, landscaping)



Pride of ownership

Building Equity

Currently in Omaha, because of all-time-low interest rates and reasonably priced homes, it is more affordable to buy than rent - meaning that renters are spending a larger portion of their incomes on rent than homeowners are spending on their mortgage.



Points To Keep In Mind…

#1 Today's first-time homebuyers have different expectations than those from 10 years ago. Functionality of the space takes precedence over the amount of space. Instead of buying a large house at the top of their price range, new homeowners are willing to sacrifice space for comfort, convenience and efficiency.

# 2 Older homes may provide a low price point, BUT they require maintenance for new roofs, HVAC or a number of other items. With interest rates at historic lows, you can finance a home that is near the top of your budget with a lower monthly payment and minimal expenses for upkeep.

# 3 Affordable price points in neighborhoods throughout the Omaha metro along with new federal programs (and changes to down payment guidelines) can make owning a first home a reality.

Call us today to schedule your personal tour of The Home Company homes. It definitely worth looking into!
