Verseman Development building in 4 new communities


Lyons Ridge is just one of six communities that offers 100% custom Verseman-built homes.

Long known as the builder that put Cary on the map, Verseman Development Company is expanding outside its familiar boundaries to craft completely custom homes in four new communities: Woodland Hills in Lakewood, Glacial Trails in Ringwood, and Austin Meadows and Ridgefield Estates in Ridgefield.

What’s more, the firm, which continues to build in Cary at Lyons Ridge and Harvest Glen, has also recently launched a successful remodeling division, said Jeff Holz, co-owner of Cary-based Verseman Development Company.

“After 18 years in business, we thought the time was right to broaden our horizons into other areas outside of Cary and to cater to our loyal customers’ requests for renovation services,” Holz said. “Many would say that now is a risky time for a home building firm to be expanding, given the state of the economy. But we see it as an opportune time to diversify our offerings and widen our scope beyond our Cary comfort zone.”

Verseman Development has “managed to survive and thrive in this economic downturn,” said Holz, who believes that the real estate market has finally hit the bottom and can only head upward. “These expansions will position our company to be even stronger when the market fully recovers.”

Meantime, buyers can now take advantage of outstanding opportunities to own a 100 percent custom residence crafted by Verseman—for less than ever before and in a greater variety of locations.

“Shoppers who wait too long risk missing out on unbelievable savings on home prices and record low interest rates,” said Holz. “There’s simply never been a better time to purchase—period.”

Verseman now has six communities to choose from, where a buyer can have a completely custom home built from scratch:

“What distinguishes Verseman from the competition is that we build 100 percent personalized residences that always begin from a blank sheet of paper,” Holz added. “To us, custom equals absolutely original. Custom does not mean providing standard home styles that can be ‘tweaked’ or mimicking in any fashion a floorplan that has already been constructed.”  

Holz said that Verseman Development works with each customer “and scrutinizes every detail so that they know what to expect at each stage of the process, including the design, construction, finishing and beyond. Ultimately, the residence we end up designing and building for them turns out to be exactly what they are looking for—a completely personalized home that reflects their tastes and lifestyle and that fits within their budget.” 

For those eager to own custom but without the wait, Verseman has an inventory home under construction, on pace for delivery as early as July in Lyons Ridge, set at 940 Lyons Ridge Dr. This exquisite residence offers four bedrooms, two-and-a-half baths, a full basement, nicely equipped kitchen, oak hardwood flooring, cathedral ceiling in the family room, a half-acre homesite and much more—priced at only $529,900. Additionally, Verseman and its preferred lender is offering a financing special on this home to those who qualify: For a limited time, you can get a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage loan with a low 4.5 percent interest rate. 

And for those who want to improve their existing homes, Holz said that Verseman’s newly initiated remodeling division brings the same high quality workmanship and attention to detail to every renovation job that new home buyers have come to expect. 

“We can do it all—from finishing your basement, creating a one-of-a-kind home theater room, and enhancing a bonus space to building a screened porch, implementing custom interior millwork, updating your kitchen with high-end cabinetry, installing an outdoor pool or patio, and giving your bathroom an overdue facelift,” said Holz. “Our remodeling customers can rely on the stellar reputation of the Verseman name and our longstanding tradition of quality and excellent craftsmanship.”
