Now that you’re finally ready to assemble the house of your dreams, it can be tough to pin down exactly what you’re looking for. For first time homeowners, it can be easy to make mistakes along the way. The learning curve gets less steep over time, but sometimes that hindsight is too little too late. In any case, be wary of these mistakes.
Buying the First Lot
In your impatience to get the ball rolling, you might select the first empty lot that you view. Sometimes it’s better to be picky, even if you’re well-acquainted with the old saying that beggars can’t be choosers. Once the construction phase is done, it’ll be time to move into your new home. You need to be sure that you love the location. Figuring out if there are any building restrictions would be the smart move.
Hiring an Architect without a Builder Partner
Building a custom home is a huge undertaking. It’s so massive, that you need to have a team of experts guide you through the process. That said, you can’t jump ahead too quickly and hire an architect when you don’t have a builder partner supporting you every step of the way. Architects will sketch out designs to bring your dreams to life, but builders will advise you on whether or not it is achievable.
Designing without a Budget in Mind
Likewise, you have to have a budget before you can start designing. A custom home builder will help you determine what funding you can use. It’s one thing to have a massive property, but you also need to be able to furnish your house, too.
Thinking Too Big
There’s another common saying you might know: “go big or go home”. In this case, going big could be the wrong move. Thinking too big can stretch your budget thin and test the limits of your patience and the ability of the contractor to meet the deadlines for each part of the process.
