Building Dream Homes Since 1953
When Arthur Rutenberg began his homebuilding business in 1953 in Clearwater, Florida, deals were made with a handshake, building permits took all of fifteen minutes to pick up and sales contracts were written on a single sheet of paper.
Fast forward nearly seven decades, and Arthur’s personal vision of building fine custom homes is advanced every day by the work and dedication of our independent builders—creating custom homes worthy of both his name, and theirs.
Today Arthur Rutenberg Homes is one of the largest networks of independently owned and operated homebuilding companies in the nation with franchised homebuilders throughout Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Indiana, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and Texas.
A Proven Process
We have spent decades refining our process to be as organized, transparent, and as worry-free as possible.
That experience enables us to deliver customized designs and full-disclosure pricing in just days, not weeks or months. We deliver value as well as luxury and can guarantee that the initial price you see will be the final price. The journey is more enjoyable when you know exactly where you’re going.
Your lot, our lot, or we’ll find one together. It may be in one of our prestigious communities, on a lot outside a planned community, or an infill location in-town. We’ll walk the homesite with you to discuss the foundation, how the home will fit, and any unique conditions that may need to be addressed.
Our rapid quoting process provides you with detailed pricing for your fully customized home in days, not weeks or months. Our pricing includes standards easily demonstrable in our “all inclusive” model homes or our Design Studios. Our standard features look like most builders’ option lists. Pricing is final and guaranteed – no mysteries and unquantifiable allowances.
