Buying a brand-new home is a big commitment, and ideally, you’ll be in your new home for many years. That’s why it’s important to get it right, and you’ll want to be sure you’re in good hands throughout the whole process. 

At Sterling Homes, we’ve made it our mission to provide our customers with the widest selection of top-quality, affordable homes in the best communities Edmonton has to offer.

Let’s take a look at a few of the reasons why Sterling Homes is more than your average home builder.

We Have The Perfect Home Model For You

Whatever your family’s needs, you can be sure that Sterling will have the perfect home for you. We build a huge, diverse selection of home models in a wide range of communities in and around Edmonton, meaning we have homes to fit any lifestyle.

Laned Homes

Laned homes are a popular alternative for single families, offering privacy as well as affordable options for a rear detached garage.

Laned homes are a very flexible and affordable choice, and our selection ranges from the compact Siren model at 1,180 square feet to the roomy Sansa, which offers over 1,400 square feet of space. You also have the option of turning the garage or basement into a separate suite, making these a perfect model for families with older relatives or for investors who want to pay their mortgage off faster by renting out a suite.

We understand that lifestyles change over time and we believe finding the right home shouldn’t be a hassle. That’s why many of our laned homes are quick possessions – making it easy to find your beautifully finished home faster.

Front-Attached Homes

Front-attached homes are one of the most popular choices in Edmonton, and it’s easy to see why – as well as offering a huge amount of space (our Affinity and Jannat models come in at over 2,000 square feet, and the Thomas at over 2,500!) you’ll also get some of our most desirable features – 9’ ceilings, quartz countertops and large ensuite bathrooms for the primary bedroom, to name just a few.

What’s more, our front-attached homes are perfectly suited for the Edmonton winters – many have mudrooms and walk-through pantries so you can pull into the garage and enter immediately into your home without having to deal with the snow at all! If you have larger vehicles, our front-attached garages are 24’ deep at no additional cost for the added space.

Front attached homes are available in all our communities – so there’s an option for you wherever in the city you choose to live!

Duplexes

Sterling Homes’ selection of duplexes will give you all the benefits of a single-family home such as a private yard, garage, and our usual selection of great features and finishes, at an affordable price.

Our duplexes are designed to give you as much space as possible. Evolve models such as the Revive and Renew have over 1,400 square feet of living space, offering a superb mix of functionality, cost efficiency, and independence for you and your family.

Duplexes are also a great option for property investors looking to add more than a single home to their portfolio – by purchasing both sides of a duplex building, you can own two separate rental properties in a single location, making it much more convenient for you to conduct inspections or repairs.

The Evolve Series

From our decades of experience, we’ve learned how to build the homes people love as quickly and efficiently as possible. We’ve put this know-how directly into our Evolve line of homes, which offer everything you’ll need in a brand-new home at a great price (some are under $350k) and some are ready to move into immediately or complete in 30, 60 or 90 days!

Evolve homes are also available in a selection of amazing new communities, so you’ll have access to all the latest amenities and conveniences. And as these communities grow and develop, so will your options.

Our Homes Are Extremely Affordable

Due to the rising cost of housing, we understand the importance of affordability and getting the most out of your money. Here’s how we build the best possible product at the most cost-effective price point for all our customers.

No Condo Fees

If you’re looking for a new duplex, the last things you want to deal with are extra fees and hassle. That’s why at Sterling Homes, there’s no such thing as condo fees. That means no condo boards, no common property concerns and extra money in your pocket to do the things you love.

Ultimately, this can save you thousands of dollars on your monthly mortgage payments – making Sterling Homes a leader both in quality and pricing.

Plenty Of Home Options

At Sterling, we offer a wide selection of options when it comes to building your home. We understand you want your home to be perfect, and you shouldn’t have to worry about not being completely happy with the design on top of all the stress of moving. Our most popular options include side entrances and legal suites, but we have a lot of other options available to you as well.

For example, if you’re looking to purchase a brand new laned home, we’ll help you build your garage at your leisure. So if you want to wait until after you’ve been able to settle in and top off your savings, we’ll be there when you’re ready. As a new homeowner, we believe you shouldn’t have to worry about a garage as an added initial cost unless you really want to.

Every home, like every home buyer, is unique. That’s why many of our models allow you to work with our exclusive designQ home décor centre (which includes a professional decorator!). Because of this, we can create the perfect home to suit your family’s unique needs. Note that this option isn’t included in our Evolve series, as our colour boards are all determined in advance.

In addition, we offer unique upgrades in every home model we offer – meaning you have the option to enhance your space to create a flawless fit for your family. If your style suits different fixtures than the standard, we’ll be happy to accommodate your tastes.

Upgrades are optional, but we understand they can make a big difference for our homeowners. Of course, you can stick with standard finishes if you’re looking to save – although we like to think that the high-end quality of our base finishes are anything but standard!

Reliability

As well as being brand-new, all of our homes are built to the highest standard so you know you won’t have to worry about repairs for a long time. On top of this, all our homes are covered by the Alberta New Home Warranty so you have the added peace of mind knowing that even in the rare event that something does go wrong, you’ll be taken care of.

Under the Alberta New Home Warranty, your home is covered for a year on materials (the flooring, fixtures, baseboards etc.), two years on the heating, plumbing and electrical systems, five years on the building envelope (the roof and exterior walls) and ten years on all the structural components of your home.

Experience

One of the most unique benefits you’ll receive if you build with Sterling is a wealth of home building experience. We’ve been in the business for over 70 years, which means we not only have decades of successful home builds and happy customers to our name, but also that we know the ins and outs of home building in Edmonton like nobody else.

We’ll use our unmatched experience, know-how and knowledge of the industry to make sure you get the best home possible, for the best price. 

Energy Efficiency

All of our homes are designed with energy efficiency in mind right from the start – not only is it good for the environment, but it also saves you money! New Sterling builds include:

  • The latest energy-efficient home insulation, which keeps your home’s temperature stable and saves on your heating bill.
  • Triple pane windows that keep the drafts out while still letting in plenty of light.
  • Energy-saving heating systems – your hot water heater and HVAC system will be the latest and most efficient.

With a brand-new Sterling home, you’ll get the latest green technology without having to sacrifice any convenience.
