Once you start the custom home building process, there are a few common mistakes you will want to be aware of and avoid at all costs. Over the last 30 years, from big to small projects, we have seen plenty of clients succumb to these predictable pitfalls. By educating yourself ahead of time, you will save yourself plenty of money, time, and possible heartache later. Read on for a few common mistakes you must avoid while building your brand-new custom home!
Pick an Excellent Home Builder
We just cannot reiterate enough how essential the builder is to the construction experience. You do not pick a surgeon based on their price, so make sure you’re taking the same consideration while picking your home builder. If you have done a detailed and thorough job of picking a great home builder that will lead your construction project through common challenges, they will also have the right experience, knowledge, and resources to make the proper adjustments when needed. We hope you pick Robin Ford Builders, but regardless, if you decide to work with an excellent home builder that you respect and trust, you will have a much better experience as a client!
Don’t Second Guess Your Home Builder
When it comes to the materials, products, sub-contractors, resources, or vendors your builder uses, you have got to be able to trust them and leave them alone to do all of their work. Your home builder is responsible for the construction process. The builder already has an established business relationship with others that can be relied upon to deliver on time and warranty their products. Do not try to micro-manage the project and second-guess each resource. You’ll end up costing yourself and your home builder both time and money.
Make Your Custom Home Decisions and Selections in a Timely Manner
During the home construction process, you have to make various decisions and selections. Make these calls by the agreed-upon deadlines. If you are planning a vacation, then get it done before you leave. Plenty of homeowners struggle with different selections, so as mentioned, we recommend enlisting the services of a home designer to help you. Whatever you do, try not to delay the process too long.
