One of the most important decisions you will make on this journey is the first step – selecting your desired community, floorplan and homesite. At Akel Homes, we created a Digital Toolbox to better assist you in selecting the perfect floorplan – all on our website.

Step 2 Purchase
Once you have selected your floorplan, the next step is to sign the Purchase Agreement and pay the required builder deposit. The Purchase Agreement is the legal document that details the construction and purchase of your new home.
Step 3 Financing
We’ve partnered with Academy Mortgage, a third party mortgage company, to assist you in your financing needs. Both your New Home Consultant and Loan officer will answer all your questions and guide you through the financing process. Of course, you are free to use any Mortgage Company of your own choice in the purchase of your home.
Step 4 Design Studio
Unleash Your Style
We created the Akel Design Studio through our commitment to providing our homebuyers with a concierge-style semi-custom homebuying experience. A personal Option Coordinator will guide you through the selection process and introduce you to top products, classic styles and the most current design trends to help you make your new home uniquely yours.
Step 5 Building
On average, it takes 10-12 months to build your new home. The construction schedule is reliant upon the local municipality building department, material and labor availability and the weather.
During construction, you will meet with your dedicated Akel Homes Construction Manager for a Pre-Start/Groundbreaking and Pre-Drywall Inspection.
Step 6 New Home
At the New Home Orientation, your Construction Manager will provide you with an overview of your home’s systems, review your selections and finishes, educate you on the proper care of your new home and create a punchlist of items that need to be addressed prior or post closing.
Step 7 Closing
The Notice of Closing is delivered approximately 30 days prior to Closing by the Closing Coordinator. It will include the time, date and place of the Closing. date and place of the Closing. At the Closing, you will sign off an all the paperwork to make your new home officially yours.
Step 8 Welcome Home
After the Closing, your Akel Homes team will help you transition fromm homebuyer to homeowner. That is why we created myAkel, our proprietary and innovative homeowner portal where you submit home warranty requests, view key contact information and access important documents like your appliance warranty registration and our detailed home care manual.
“We didn't want to live in a cookie cutter community where every house is the same. We like the diversity that Akel Homes' Villamar provided. A new home in this community was right for us.”
“We moved from New York to Florida so our family could have a better life. Akel Homes took what was important to us and made it important to them.”
“Looking at past homes there was always something missing. The homes at Villamar had everything we wanted and was exactly what we were looking for. There is something for everyone here at Akel Homes' Villamar.”
“There are may reasons why we chose Villamar. Location, floor plan, building quality, site plan, amenities, value for the price and top schools. We fell in love with the community and the staff certainly helped.”
“What a great experience with the whole team and management. Our first time buying a house for the construction. Great team of Akel Homes company, definitely showed us a very professional approach and work. Very satisfied with our new home !! Recommend everyone!!!”
“The decor selection process was exciting. We put a fair amount of upgrades into the interior, and left ourselves enough things to do after move-in to make this home a project we will enjoy working on for years to come. We are very happy with the way it turned out, and we know that with our custom touches we will be living in our dream home.”
