How to Choose a Custom Home Builder

March 27, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 170

When the time has come for you and your family to move into the house of your dreams, there is a tremendous amount to consider. Where you will live and the logistics of moving are important, but they are not as important as how you go about selecting the right custom home builder. Finding the one that fits your specific need is a critical decision. Costly mistakes and miscommunication can be avoided if you choose the right home builder. But how do you make the right choice? Below are things you should consider as you look to choose a custom home builder.

See their work

As you set off looking for the right home builder for you and your family, we first recommend taking a look into their design portfolio. Ask for lots of pictures of previous work. No matter if you like the design style in the photos or not, being able to see their work will help you understand the quality of their work. You may not necessarily like some of the design styles of their previous customers, but you at least get an idea of the home builders' capabilities. If possible, look to see if they have any video work too. Sometimes this gives you a better idea of where the project started and where it ended up.

Ask for references

As you start seeing some of the work the contractor in question can do, you next step should be to ask for references. Talk to as many people as you can that has worked with your potential home builder. Ask about how well they stayed on budget, what the communication process was like and if they would use the builder again. Knowing answers to these three simple questions is a great way to narrow your choices.

Know their capabilities

Beyond seeing the finished work and talking to reference, sometimes you will find custom home builders that can not only execute a home plan, but can also create a home plan. It is a luxury to be able to find custom home builders that can take your idea and turn it into a home of your dreams. These professionals usually have architecture and engineering degrees, both of which is a plus for you.

Ask Questions

The contractor wants your business. Although they build new homes regularly, they know that the experience can be your first and only time. Find one that is easy to communicate with and that is open to answering all of your questions. Be attentive to those that offer a variety of ideas based on their previous experience. They may know something you haven't necessarily thought of just yet. Having options when it comes to constructing your custom home is an advantage.
