Anyone who has gone through the process of building a home knows what a huge undertaking it is. There are so many things to consider and it can become quite overwhelming and stressful. Building a home should be a wonderful and exciting time in your life. Finding the right builder is the secret to having a pleasurable home building experience.
I used to be in new home construction doing tile work for several years. I have seen and heard both happy and horror building stories. To avoid a builder nightmare, there are some things to take into consideration.
- Talk with several different home builders - This is one of the most important decisions you'll make. You want someone that you really like and get along with as you'll be working closely together for several months or more. You need a builder who understands you and what kind of home you want to create.
- Do your research - Find out everything you can about the builders you are considering. It's very easy to find out about most companies online. Get all information such as how long in business, who owners are, employees, experience, work ethic or philosophy, awards and ratings. Also check the Better Business Bureau for any history.
- References - Get plenty of references and actually check them. If possible, talk in person to previous customers about their home building experience with the company. Also make sure you tour extensively the builder's model homes or other previous builds. Really look closely at the craftsmanship and details.
- Don't rush - Lastly, just take your time. Don't rush into any decision. You might be excited to get things started, but taking some extra time to make the right decision will save you more time and headaches in the long run.
