When thinking about building your very own custom home, you should always work with a custom home builder who has the experience and qualifications to get the job done right. We know that the custom home building process can be stressful which is why we’re committed to answering any questions you have right off the bat. Whether you’re asking these questions to yourself or your builder, it’s crucial that everyone is on the same page so you can end up with the custom home of your dreams.
What’s the Build Time?
Get an idea of how long it’s going to take a custom home builder to build your home. This helps you make plans for your family but also sets some basic standards for what you can expect in terms of a timeline.
What Sizes and Price Ranges?
Has your custom home builder made a home in the size range you’re working with before? Have they done work within a similar budget as yours? Figuring out the size of your home and budget isn’t easy, but you want to make sure your builder is cut out for the job.
Toughest Client Demand?
Knowing how your builder handles tough asks can shed a lot of light on their process. Are they willing to accommodate your needs? Are they open to collaboration? Are they friendly enough to work through even the toughest parts of the building process with you? Asking for an anecdote about a tough client ask can help answer some of these questions.
What’s Your Process?
What are the first steps? What are the final steps? Understanding your builder’s general process will be helpful for the next few months, so before you agree to work with a custom home builder, you should have a good understanding of what the process would even look like.
How Do You Handle Delays?
Even the best planning sometimes goes off the tracks. Delays happen, especially in the custom home building industry. It’s not a question of whether or not a delay will pop up, but how they handle it and communicate updated timelines to you.
Do you have References?
Any builder worth working with will show you homes they’ve built and allow you to talk to a past client upon request. References are always helpful in making a decision as big as who is going to build your next home.
