About Sullivan Homes
Our company has been in the Residential New Home Construction industry since 1975 and has been a member of the Atlantic Home Warranty Program since 1978.
We, as a builder, have been involved in the development and growth of Greater Moncton and surrounding areas.

- “R-2000 Builder of the Year”
- “Energuide for New Homes Builder of the Year”
- “Natural Gas Builder of the Year”
- “Green Award for Cleaner Air Builder of the Year”
- “Housing Design Award for New Construction”
How much does a new home costs?
It is really unfair and very difficult to determine a price solely based on square footage. We do not price homes in this manner as it would not only be unfair to the customer, but it would also not be fair to us as a builder. We price each aspect of a home individually so that we can determine a fair and accurate price for each home.
The biggest factors in home costs are site factors (water table, slope, rock etc.); design (size, roof pitch, number of windows, siding material, number of baths, etc.) and level of finishes chosen (custom cabinets, granite counter tops, stone, tile or marble flooring, specialty rooms etc.).
How do I compare quotes from different builders?
Competitive bids are never “apples to apples”, since each builder is calculating on a different level of quality, service and have different methods of estimating. The first thing you want to do is make sure that the bids are as descriptive as possible. Some builders may undercut other builders by “shortchanging” allowances or making substitutions that only a very experienced builder would recognize. When the plans are given out to bid, an outline should be given to each builder, breaking down the project the same way. The more you do your homework and find out what things should cost, the more likely it is that you will get the best value for your money.
Choosing a home builder should never be based on price alone, but the more clear information you can obtain about how the bid prices were reached, the better chance you have of making the right decision. Negotiating with one builder whom you have researched thoroughly and believe to be reputable and trustworthly is probably the best approach.
