A Texas company is offering a software tool that allows buyers to customize new homes on a personal computer prior to construction.

Austin-based myHouseby has partnerships with home builders that enable buyers to virtually compare floor plans and select the architectural style, room types, interior finishes and landscaping they want, according to Inman. The tool also allows virtual tours of the customized home.

Builders can also buy access to myHouseby for the platform’s consumer trend data, or to use the software’s built-in presentation tools.

MyHouseby just launched in San Antonio, where its home-building partners are Rausch Coleman Homes, Kindred Homes and Bella Vista Homes. The software company plans to start operating in Houston, Dallas and Austin next. [Inman] – Mike Seemuth
