Guide to Richland Homes

By: Ryan Renner, Realtor

I've guided many Omaha families through the new construction process. If you are considering buying or building a new home, please reach out. I look out for your best interests, not the builders.


In 2021, Richland Homes built 97 homes in Douglas and Sarpy County. That makes them the 8th largest builder in the Omaha area (by number of homes)

The process is simple: select your neighborhood and floor plan, add your personal touch with their endless selection of finishes, then they build a home that will leave your friends and family saying “Wow!”

Customizations / Selection Process

Richland Homes’ Home Building Process:

  1. Let’s Begin - The process starts with choosing the community you want to live. It is good to consider things like your commute to work, access to schools, shopping, etc. when deciding what community meets your needs.

Once you settle in on the community, you’re ready to go under contract. Your Richland Homes Realtor will walk you through the process and details of your Purchase Agreement including what floor plan, elevation, homesite and structural options you want for your home.

In conduction with the Purchase Agreement, the Realtor will collect your initial deposit of $2,500 which allows the lot and floor plan to be taken off the market as you put your final selections together.

  1. The Selection Meeting - Now the fun starts! Express yourself in choices and options that allow you to personalize your home. Richland Homes offers plenty of choices to make sure your home is the dream you’ve always wanted. You will meet with our Customer Experience Coordinator to make selections, including cabinetry, countertops and interior and exterior paint.
  2. Plans & Specifications - Richland Homes in house drafting team will bring it all together. When complete, you will get the final contract documents including plans, specifications and all changes to the the specifications for you to finalize and sign off. The balance of your $5,000 earnest deposit is due.
  3. Construction of Your Home - Construction is the builder’s job. Our talented team of local suppliers, engineers, trades and craftsmen will work in concert to build your new home.

One of the most important things you can do is remember to “Embrace The Unknown”. We’ve built a few homes in our day and the one constant amongst every new home experience, is there is a certain amount of unknown to the process. Sometimes we discover things along the way that no one could anticipate, no matter how many homes you’ve built. We find expecting a bit of the unknown makes for an easier process when whatever you weren’t expecting to show up.

  1. New Home Orientation - When complete, Richland Homes will familiarize you with your new home and teach you how to maintain the home properly. In addition, the warranty program will be covered at this meeting.

A second aspect of this meeting is the ‘punch list’ where imperfections are identified, and we make corrections and/or repairs before you close and move in to bring those imperfections in line with our standards.

  1. Welcome Home - Here’s the day your dream is fulfilled! Your months of planning all come down to this single day when you move in to your brand-new home. Before you start unpacking, you will sign a package of mortgage and closing documents. You will also need proper identification and a certified cashier’s check for your down payment and closing costs. After everything is signed and recorded, the keys to your brand-new Richland Home will now be yours.
  2. Warranty - Once you’ve closed, we don’t disappear. As you become acquainted with your home and acclimated to your community and surroundings, our warranty team is there to ensure your home is performing up to our standards. We’ll continue to educate you on basic maintenance and address any questions or concerns you may have.
