Are you interested in building a custom home? More and more homebuyers are choosing to build custom homes in order to get exactly what they want without having to compromise or make any improvements after moving in. If you’re looking for a home builder, choosing one is a big decision. Finding the right builder is crucial if you want to have a good experience and end up completely satisfied with your house.
New Homes in Oak Ridge and other highly desired neighborhoods in the Greensboro area are designed by multiple builders, so you have your choice of who to work with. To help you decide, look for these 5 qualities.
1.Syle that Matches Your Preferences.
Look at a portfolio or an online gallery of homes the builder has recently constructed and even drive around to view some of them in person. Does their building style match what you’re looking for in a home? If not, they might not be the builder for you, but keep in mind a great homebuilder can adapt to the style of the homeowner. Talented builders can design and construct homes in a variety of different styles. If what you’re looking for is drastically different or particularly unique, it may be difficult for a builder that is “set in their ways” to deviate that far from their usual building habits.
2.Builds Within your Price Range.
Most builders have a price range they typically work within, and if your budget is significantly lower or higher it may make things more difficult. And if you have a certain neighborhood or housing community in mind, there is usually a minimum or maximum housing budget requirement to build there. So find a builder and a neighborhood that meets your needs financially.
3.Communicates in a Way that Works for You.
Communication is one of the most important aspects of building a home. From the design process to the finished product there are many decisions that have to be made and questions that need to be answered. If you prefer email or text, find a builder who can easily communicate that way and responds quickly. If you need someone who can speak with you on the phone on a regular basis, find a builder who can do that. Pay attention to how the builder communicates early on before you commit.
Your builder should have excellent listening skills. When it comes to designing and building a custom home, you want it to turn out just the way you pictured it, and the only way to achieve that is to effectively communicate your preferences and for your builder to effectively listen. But listening also goes both ways. The builder is the framing expert, so even though you think you know what you want, it may not be practical or feasible according to structural requirements.
5.Home Warranty Coverage.
Never sign on with a builder who doesn’t offer you some type of home warranty coverage for a certain period of time. Even with the best of builders, things can go wrong in the first few months or the first year in a newly constructed home. Your builder should be willing to come back and fix things that are no the fault of yours.
