John Barrett, Owner of ProLine Homes and Barr Homes, began his real estate career in 1972 and started focusing on new construction over 20 years ago. By working in the housing market and communicating directly with buyers, John became keenly aware of their wants and expectations. Feeling there was a need for cost effective homes with practical, yet exciting floor plans, he established Barr Homes in 2001. John’s ability to discern market trends and decipher customer’s real needs was essential in designing staple floor plans and has been the key reason for Barr Homes’ success!

In 2005, it became apparent with rising land and building costs there had become a gap in the new construction housing market and the builders building in the low mid-price range were now well over and above affordable prices. John realized that buyers needed an alternative to the area’s “community” builders in the low mid-price price point. In 2006 ProLine Homes was formed. The ProLine 2 story floor plan is a smaller version of the original Barr Homes 2 story plan that has been a huge success. ProLine offers buyers functional floor plans at an affordable price in the areas most sought after custom home subdivisions.

Building Process

One of the most common questions received from prospective buyers is “How long does it take to build a ProLine Home?” The answer is roughly 7 months from the date of the purchase agreement. However, ProLine Homes builds in many jurisdictions in the area and the turn-around time for permits and inspections can vary. Due to this variability, firm closing dates are unable to be set with a buyer until the initial inspections are completed.
