When you’re having a custom home built you want to know that it will hold up to your family’s everyday use and maintain its value for decades to come. Both of these factors will require that your house is constructed by skilled craftsmen using quality materials.
Being able to direct your focus on the items that top your priority list is one of the main benefits of custom building your home. Personalize your space and delegate accordingly. Does an open floor plan with your kitchen overlooking the living room work best for your young family? What if you installed a soundproof rehearsal space in the basement for your daughter’s rock band? Making decisions based on how you live your life and what is important to you will help you create the dream home you crave.
The builder’s reputation
What have others’ personal experiences been? Did the builder adhere to the predetermined timelines and budgets? Were they reliable and forthcoming? Did they remove all of the debris or leave a mess? Doing your homework ahead of time can potentially save you thousands of dollars. Get references and drive by some of their existing homes to check things out for yourself.
Working with a successful, reputable company is a huge factor in your overall success. All too often we hear stories of builders who went broke in the middle of a project and suddenly left town. Homeowners are left with unfinished business and the added expense of hiring new subcontractors to come in and pick up where the original builder left off. This equates to more expenses and stress that you don’t need.
Do your best to ensure that the company you hire to build your custom home is financially secure and plans to continue working in the community making a great name for themselves.
Choosing the right builder
When all the paperwork checks out and you have a few solid options to choose from, how do you decide? Well, who did you feel the best connection with? Did the builder fully and enthusiastically explain any terms that you were unsure of? Or, did they seem impatient with your questions? Customer service is often the defining factor.
Ensure that you can be yourself and feel comfortable asking your builder anything and that your requests are welcome. You want to work with someone who shares a mutual trust and respect for you throughout this huge undertaking. After all, your dream home is not a weekend project. You will be working with this person for months, so choose wisely.
Trust your intuition and work with the custom home builder who shares your vision. Quality construction is key for your custom home on every level, personal and physical. You want to be able to write a stellar review about your experience when all is said and done. Building your home is a life-changing event that will also be a positive one if you choose the right builder to work with.
