You’ve decided to build a custom home and are beginning the wonderful process, but there are some important things that every home builder should know before getting too far down the road. By putting some effort in before your meeting starts, you’ll have a more productive time and make sure you don’t forget any of these important things.
How Much Do You Have to Spend?
Budget will dictate a great deal of the choices and options you have to choose from during the custom home building process. Make sure that you know your budget before heading into a meeting with your home builder, as waiting to determine this will delay the entire process.
What Is Your Vision?
If you already have an idea of what floorplan you would like or the style of home you are searching for, bring them along with you to your builder meeting. Any photos, ideas, or examples you have that you can bring will make the meeting go more smoothly and help to ensure that you end up with a product you’ll love! Your builder will also appreciate the effort that we put into things.
What Do You Like About Your Current Home? What Do You Dislike About Your Current Home?
Next, keep in mind why you want a custom home in the first place. What do you like or dislike about your current home? Telling these things to your builder will help them determine what should be altered about your design. Even if it’s hard to put specific things into words, write them down or use pictures to supplement your ideas.
Who Is Your Point of Contact?
The smoothest custom home building processes are those run with a single point of contact. Make the decision on who you want your builder to contact with questions, emergencies, or any other decisions and stick to it! They will appreciate not needing to make 5 phone calls every time a fixture needs to be chosen.
What Relevant Paperwork Do You Need?
Finally, bring along any paperwork that your builder needs from you. Turning this in in person is the fastest way to keep the process moving along.
