CBH Homes and our buyers are loving the “Fast Track” – designed to help home buyers into their shiny, new, awesome homes faster than ever before.


CBH Homes wants to build new homes in the fastest and and most efficient way possible. Idaho buyers deserve this because they have a lot to navigate, from understanding the home buying process to securing financing.

Shouldn’t there be a way for buyers to move into their new homes quicker and easier than normal if they’ve taken the time to be prepared and buttoned-up when it comes to getting into their new home?


Many buyers know exactly what they want in a new home. They’ve thought everything through and come to the table prepared. These buyers can now be rewarded by allowing them to move into their new CBH home at an expedited pace. Fast Track enables speedier move in times for any size of home.
