Choosing to build a new, custom home is a big decision, but it’s only the beginning.
When it comes time to select a builder, you’ll want to start off by asking the right questions to make sure your homebuilder is someone you can trust to provide exactly what you want, when you want it.
So, how do you choose? Here’s a few things to consider:
- What’s their reputation like?
Once you find a few builders that pique your interest, do a deep dive on their reviews across every platform you can. Looking on their website for testimonials is always a good place to start, but they’re likely going to be very positive. Read up on as many client experiences as you can find, checking sources such as Google My Business, Facebook and Houzz, to make sure they treat their customers how you’ll want to be treated. If their reputation seems too good to be true, a good, reputable builder would be happy to provide you samples of their work or even suggest previous clients to talk with. All you have to do is ask!
- Can they give me what I’m looking for?
Every custom home builder has their own style, and it’s important to make sure their capabilities match your vision. While some are incredibly versatile, other builders have specialties that may not mix perfectly with what you want out of a custom home. For example, a custom builder that typically creates traditional American or farmhouse-style style homes may not be the right choice for you if you have minimalistic, modern taste.
- What’s their process like?
Once you’ve narrowed down your choices, call your list of preferred builders and ask what a partnership with them will look like. Do they offer free consultations? Will they design your home with you step by step? Can you be involved in the entire process, or would you rather them handle everything? How do they estimate pricing? Questions like these will give you a good understanding of how they work and if they’re right for your project.
