To prepare for a new home building project, start with a few basic pointers. Keep these in mind whether you’re just starting your research or you’re close to signing a contract.
A is for Area.
A Pure Michigan commercial with its lakes and sunsets could convince anyone the state is a great place to build and settle down. It’s still important to select the right community for you within the region. Whether you’re looking for top ranked schools or a quick commute, ensure the community you select from your builder is the best fit. Consider softer factors as well like your neighbors and proximity to cultural events and restaurants.
B is for Builder.
Of course, the number of bedrooms and bathrooms is at the top of the criteria in your new home building plan. But the builder should be number one. An experienced builder delivers your dream home on time and in budget.
Avoid mistakes and headaches by selecting a licensed and insured builder. An experienced builder knows the construction industry and has a relationship with bank lenders. Perform some research on your builder’s reputation. Customer testimonials and references speak volumes about a builder’s integrity.
C is for Customer.
Hopefully, you’ll be the next happy customer. As the buyer, expect to be put first. Good customer service requires frequent updates and plenty of options from your builder. Work with a builder who is clear in the contract. The written contract should detail the quality of materials and the complete price for any upgrades you select. Happy customers in new home building are those who aren’t surprised by the cost or timeline.
