Building a home is a process that begins with selecting the right custom home builder. It is important for you to research builders in the area in which you want to call home. Custom home building can take the good part of a year, so you will want to select a company that you enjoy working with.
We have some tips to help you in your decision making.
- Go with your gut
When you talk to the salesperson, what is your impression? Do you have a good feeling about them? Do you like their vision and approach to your new home? If, after spending some time meeting with the builder, it feels right then that is a good sign.
- Can you get ahold of them?
How accessible is the salesperson of the company? Are you getting a response within 24 hours of contact? If not, consider that if you aren’t getting attention prior to the sale, what happens during the build? Accessibility and attentiveness to your questions and concerns should be high on your list of “must have’s”.
- Do they build their houses to your liking?
If the quality of the home build is important to you, then walk through some houses under construction and take mental notes of what you see. Is the area tidy? Are you noticing any flaws that stand out? Find homes that are in different stages of the build process to inspect. Then, go back to the builder with your questions. A solid builder that stands behind their work will fully answer your questions.
- Ask for referrals – and call them
A reputable custom home builder will provide you with a list of previous clients that you can contact. Once you have this list, contact them. Many people receive these lists and fail to contact the homeowners. You can gather much information in regards to their experience before, during, and after the build process.
