“Irmo! Chapin! Thank you so much for your support!” says CEO Greg Howell. “We have officially launched phase III of the Shoals Landing development located on Irmo Drive and we look forward to serving more homebuyers as this community with award winning schools convenient to shopping, grocery stores, and of course Lake Murray, continues to develop.”

Hurricane Builders was founded in 1997 at a time when affordable homes in the Columbia area were almost out of reach for most homebuyers. We began building our distinctive homes and lifestyle friendly neighborhoods in 2001 and have since maintained our reputation for building the most affordable, quality homes throughout the Midlands.

How is Hurricane Builders staying ahead of the curve, you ask?

ELECTRIC VEHICLE CHARGING PORTS

Hurricane Builders was proud to accept the 2021 Innovation Award in the “Best Green Building Product” category for its initiative to begin installing Electric Vehicle (EV) charging ports into all garages – standard.

“We believe in supporting the community all while providing our homeowners with the best value,” said Howell.  “What better way to support our communities than to plan for a more sustainable future?”

Vehicle enthusiast Howell added that there are several vehicular manufacturers who intend to be fully electric by the end of the decade, starting with the transition to produce hybrid-only models. Lamborghini, for example, now has an electrification plan in action in efforts to continue reducing the negative environmental impacts caused by motor fuel.

A DIGITAL EARNEST MONEY DEPOSIT EXPERIENCE

In a time of social distancing, a rise in wire fraud threats, and increased gas prices, the “old way” of handling earnest money simply doesn’t make sense anymore.  This year, Hurricane Builders introduced a new partner program allowing for a fully digital, secure, and extremely convenient transfer of funds in real estate transactions, right from a cell phone or tablet.

The program is protected with banking-level security and encryption while also using ACH payment transfers instead of wires.  The system requires no paper checks and homebuyer’s sensitive information is never collected.

“The added convenience of transferring earnest money to our partner escrow holder from virtually anywhere is a game changer,” said Hurricane Builder’s Sales Manager, Jeremy Gould. “No longer will you or your Realtor have to meet in person to transport a paper check to the attorney’s office, wait days for confirmation of receipt for a check that has been mailed, or use other less secure processes, when you can now complete the earnest transfer electronically in minutes.”
