Constructing a luxury custom home requires knowledge and ability to provide design elements and features not usually given by semi-custom home builders. At the end of the day, your home building and customer experience journey significantly depends on the builder’s capabilities. Read on for what your custom home builder should excel at before you evaluate.
Staffing & Skillset Capabilities
The builder’s capabilities and business model will heavily impact the client experience type you receive. Does your custom home builder have the human resources, capital, and equipment to manage several projects? Do they excel in project management? Does your builder have in-house or sub-contractors, and are they reliable?
Most importantly, do they provide concierge services? This refers to having someone collaborate with the client throughout each project’s phase to stay on schedule. You should ask yourself these questions while searching for an honest, caring, and reliable custom home builder.
Well-Versed in Residential Permitting & Site Preparation
A qualified custom home builder will excel in the residential construction permitting requirements for the area you seek to build. Sites such as forest preservation areas or waterfront properties require in-depth knowledge and can be linked with lengthy processes or considerable fees. Additionally, you should discuss this topic at the beginning of the process. This will ensure your home builder has the proper experience and expertise to guide you on this journey.
Great Collaborative Approach
In particular, is your builder proficient at working with several professionals for luxury custom homes? This long-term relationship between you and your custom home builder will start with the design and estimation, which may take several months to finalize. Construction can be from 6 to 24 months or longer. This depends on the scope and home type being built.
While there are countless factors you should keep in mind when choosing the right custom home builder, it will be worthwhile when you receive a better overall experience.
