Residential homebuilder Curtis Homes offers relocation help to military personnel through its Five Star Military Services Incentive Program. Aimed at providing “first-class service to active military personnel looking for a home,” according to the Curtis Homes website (http://www.curtishomes.com), this new program gives military personnel a host of benefits that make it easier to transition.
“The program started because of a previous military buyer we had who found himself deployed in the midst of a home purchase in The Woods at Myrtle Point,” said Vicki Clary, Marketing Director of Curtis Homes, referring to the company’s development in California, Md. “When he wasn’t able to finish the process, we reached out to make the transition easier for him and his family. That meant when he came back, his home was waiting — and he was so touched by the help, he dedicated an American flag flying in Operation Enduring Freedom to our team. After that, we realized other military personnel needed our help, too.”
With new home communities in Calvert and St. Mary’s counties, Curtis Homes has many properties within a short commute of the Pax River Naval Air Station. Through the Five Star Program, access to these homes is easier than ever for personnel at the base.
Through the Five Star Program, Curtis Homes is able to provide military homebuyers with the following services:
- Up to $300 payment for home inspection when homeowner can’t be present (homeowner may choose the inspector)
- Emails with photos of the home during the construction process
- Reports about changes, updates, meetings, and other home details
- Assistance with legal and financial home transactions
- Secure, remote home purchase and communication details
- Detailed records for homeowner
- Move-in-ready home when homeowner arrives from deployment
In addition to its Five Star Program, Curtis also maintains what it calls Immediate Delivery Homes, a crucial way to help military families who have to relocate fast, without time for home construction. Immediate Delivery Homes are spec residences that are move-in-ready immediately, a crucial benefit for military personnel with quick PCS orders. Rather than waiting the typical 12 months for a residence to be completed, the homes are ready with no delays.
“We’re proud of the quality homes we build,” Clary said. “And we’re also proud of the men and women of our armed forces. Through the Five Star Program, we’re able to bring the two together. We’re happy to do something to support our troops and make their transition to the Maryland area simpler and easier.”
