Why Build a Home in Payson, Utah?
First settled in 1850, Payson is the third oldest city in Utah County and has gone through multiple names. It was first called Peteetneet Creek, which was an anglicized term for the Southern Paiute’s phrase “Pah-ti't-ni't,” meaning "our water place.” Later on, it was renamed Pacen after the settler James Pace. After losing confidence in James Pace, Brigham Young replaced the leader in 1851, giving it the name we know today. Young named Payson after Payson, Illinois, because the citizens there had taken in his family. Payson was also home to the first high school south of Salt Lake City.
Payson is a safe, family-friend community with over a dozen parks. Residents can skate at the Payson skate park, go swimming at the Payson City Aquatics Center, play baseball, softball, or soccer at the Gene Hill Recreation Complex, walk the trail around Dry Creek, or pedal around the Payson City bike bath. One of the most popular parks is the spacious Memorial Park, which features a covered playground, big trees, pickleball courts, basketball courts, and a creek. Plus, it hosts band concerts and its yearly festivals!
One of the most unique festivals is the Salmon Supper, which has been going strong for over sixty years. Another popular festival that brings in crowds from all over is the Payson Scottish Festival. Each year in July, participants immerse themselves in Scottish culture with Highland Dance, bagpipe competitions, Celtic music, strongman competitions, and more. Lastly, citizens love celebrating Payson’s Golden Onion Days, which commemorates both the harvest season and the city’s history. Residents celebrate weeklong with community events like races, a flower and art show, a parade, and fireworks.
Year-round citizens can visit the Peteetneet Museum and Cultural Art center to view exhibits or participate in outdoor recreation in the West Mountain.

Enjoy the Benefits of Home Ownership
Build wealth by paying a mortgage! In today’s fluctuating market, some might be skeptical that homeownership is the best financial move. But homeownership is actually a great investment because owning a home allows you to build wealth over time as you accumulate equity each month through payments on your mortgage. In a sense, homeownership is like a built-in savings plan, compelling you to save money each month for your mortgage. Not only do you build equity, but your home will accrue appreciation much faster than stocks! With real estate expecting to increase by 20% along the Wasatch Front, it’s a great investment.
Mortgage costs stay the same while rents rise. Homeownership is a long-term financial investment that, while intimidating for first-time buyers, is most often cheaper than renting in the long run. With rent in the Provo-Orem metro skyrocketing, you can step away from the rising costs and have control over your home payments. You have peace of mind knowing you are investing in your financial future instead of paying to invest in someone else’s. Plus, owning your own home also provides tax benefits such as a homeowner’s credit and other tax deductions.
Homeownership also provides freedom, flexibility, and the opportunity to make the place you live your own. You can invest in the property, make improvements as needed, and have complete control over the place you live. You can buy a pre-existing home or consider building one of your own, which gives you complete control over the process. These are just some of the many benefits that come with homeownership.
Building a Home vs. Buying Existing
You’ve decided that you want to buy a home in Payson, but now the question remains: should I build a new home or buy a used one? While buying a resale home has benefits such as living in an established neighborhood or allowing you to transform a fixer-upper, buying a new home has a lot of advantages!
When you build a home, you get to choose your own floor plan. You may have your heart on an open-concept floor plan, spacious master suite, or a jack and jill bathroom. But finding an existing home in Payson that matches your floor plan preferences might be difficult. At Fieldstone Homes, however, we have so many floor plans to choose from! Not only can you pick a floor plan that you like, but you can adjust it! Add a fourth bedroom, third car garage, or choose to finish your basement. Building a new home means that you get to customize your house to suit your family’s lifestyle.
Not only do you get to pick a floor plan you love, but you get to customize the inside to your personal style. With an existing home in Payson, it can be an uphill battle trying to find a home that matches your style. Instead, building a home means that you get to select your own flooring, cabinets, countertops, paint, and more!
Building a new home is also more energy-efficient and safe. It may surprise you to know that new homes are actually 30% more energy-efficient than homes built just a decade previously. The reason lies in the products used in the home: better insulation, energy-efficient windows (Low E), and more proficient heating and cooling systems. Homes are also safer—no surprise lead paint here! All homes are built to today’s safety code, which means better circuit breakers, safer garage door openers, and more environmentally-friendly building materials.
While some people relish a do-it-yourself project, building a new home means you won’t be forced to do costly repairs yourself. A lot of older homes in Payson will necessitate repairs that will be pricey, such as roof repairs, HVAC system replacements, and new carpeting. However, new homes come with brand-new materials, quality appliances, and an outstanding warranty. Now you can just enjoy your new, low maintenance home.
The Fieldstone Home Building Process
Building your own home can be overwhelming, especially to those who aren’t familiar with the process. However, this process isn’t as intimidating as you think and can be a fun, exciting adventure for everyone involved!
Before buying a home, the first step is to establish your budget! Knowing how much home you can afford will help you focus your home search. The next step is to get pre-qualified for financing. We recommend using one of our “preferred lenders.” They have gained our trust by consistently providing our homebuyers with great customer service, extremely competitive rates, and an overall positive experience. Plus, our preferred lenders grant you an added monetary incentive. With your pre-approval amount in mind, you can now select the right location, style of home, and home type for you. When selecting where you want to live, we know that location is everything! Having a home that you love in the right location for you can make all the difference. Consider visiting several communities or model homes in Payson to learn about the area, allowing you to decide which community in Payson is right for you.
Once you have selected your location, the next step is to choose a floor plan. Unlike some builders, Fieldstone Homes makes this process as easy as possible by giving you several professionally designed layouts to choose from. Select the home layout that works best for you and feel free to discuss any changes or concerns you may have with a representative. Then, once you have selected your floor plan and lot, you make an appointment with our design center. There, our experienced interior designers will help you build the home you’ll love as you select your interior and exterior features. Once that’s done, we begin construction on your new home in Payson! It is as easy as that! Not only is it easy, but the process can actually be fun!
