Everyone has a different idea of where they want their dream home to be. If yours is a home at the shore, Schaeffer Family Homes has you covered! Our “Build On Your Lot” program includes Cape May and Atlantic Counties, and handles teardowns and rebuilds.
Whether you want a second home by the bay in Ocean City or a retirement bungalow on the beach in Brigantine, we have plenty of examples of homes we’ve built at the shore. Or, you can bring us your own plans and we’ll review them. Don’t have a homesite yet? We can help you find one! Just let us know what you’re looking for! If you have a homesite, we can help determine if it is suitable for building.
When you are ready to build, Schaeffer Family Homes has dozens of home designs to choose from, and a team of experts who are waiting to help you create your dream home.
They will help you navigate our easy process, as well as answer any question you might have. Throughout our 2,000 square foot Design Center, virtually all of the components that make up a home are on display, from lighting fixtures to roofing samples, faucet selections to countertop options. Our design experts can help you create the unique shore home you’ve always wanted!
Are you dreaming of lazy summer days on the boardwalk or exciting excursions on the bay? Decadent dinners in Cape May or a quiet corner inland? With deep roots in South Jersey and three generations of home building experience, the Schaeffer Family understands, and we are dedicated to building high-quality homes in the Shore communities you love. We can’t wait to partner with you to build your dream beach home.

Everyone has a different idea for where they want their dream home to be. For some, living in a new community is the aspiration. But for others, a spot far from town – or a lot right in the middle of town – may be more attractive. The Build On Your Lot program from Schaeffer Family Homes is an exciting alternative to our communities. It offers the option of building a high quality Schaeffer home on a homesite that you may already own or one that we can help you acquire.
If you have a homesite, we can help determine if it is suitable for building. Schaeffer Family Homes provides a homesite inspection for all of our customers. During a due diligence contingency period, we will go out to your homesite and identify which items will need to be addressed in order to build your new home. We will also talk to the local municipalities and zoning offices to find out what permits and tests they require. We recommend that a soil test, seasonal high water table test and topographical grading plan be performed to get things started.
If you don’t own any land, we have relationships with many landowners and can provide you with a list of available homesites. Or we can provide you with names of several real estate professionals that specialize in land acquisition.
When you are ready to build, Schaeffer Family Homes has more than 20 home designs to choose from, priced from the low $100s to the upper $300s and beyond. We offer many home styles, such as ranch style, 1st floor masters and traditional 2-story homes. And there are a variety of structural changes available depending on which floorplan you choose. If you are looking for something unique or custom, please let us know so we can review the customization choices open to you. If you have your own plan, we will be more than happy to review it.
Your final price may vary depending on which of our included feature packages you choose. The starting price for each floorplan is based on the Legacy Features Package. Upgraded selections are part of the Signature Features Package. Upon request, we will provide you with a cost estimate based on the features that you wish to have in your new home. Our goal is to work within your budget and build the home of your dreams!
Our Build On Your Lot program is available in Atlantic, Burlington, Camden, Cape May, Cumberland, Gloucester, and Salem Counties in New Jersey. If you are interested, call 856-208-5118 or fill out the request more information form on our website, and we will schedule a free consultation meeting with a New Home Specialist. If you do not own land yet, we recommend speaking with us before you buy your land so that we can assist you.
We look forward to meeting with you to build the home of your dreams on the land that you love!
