Being a custom home builder is more than just constructing four walls. Good custom home builders are advocates for the homeowners’ wants and needs and keep their clients within their desired budget. In addition, custom home builders are key members in helping the homeowner design their desired home. Builders have different strengths to offer their clients. The following tips will help you select the custom home builders that are right for you.
- Get references– Asking your friends, family or neighbors for a home builder they recommend is always the first step. Personal referrals can go a long way. However, it is also a good idea to submit a list of questions to each builder you are considering so you can compare their answers. Ask them the details of who their suppliers are, how often they stay within budget, their timelines, etc. The more questions you ask, the more information you will have to make your decision. A builder who is unwilling to take the time to answer your questions will not give your custom home the attention to detail it deserves.
- Ask for current resume of projects– Proud custom home builders will be willing to give you a list of past and present projects. Stay clear of a company unwilling to share their work with you.
- Interview them– Remember, the company you choose will be working for you. It is absolutely appropriate to request an in-person interview with any potential custom home builders to help you narrow your decision. Hiring a home builder should be no different than the typical job application process of a written application and an interview before being chosen for a job.
