Choosing a Home Builder – What to Know
One of the happiest days of your life is the day you decide to have a home built for yourself. You are not going to be choosing a typical one that you see in the suburbs. Instead, you are choosing a home that will be unique to you and your family. It will say something about who you are and what you want the world to know about you. To do this, you need a custom builder and there are things you need to know about finding a good builder.
A custom builder is not the same as a typical builder. For example, a custom home builder only makes a few homes a year, while a typical contractor makes many homes a year, often over 1,000.
With a custom builder, it is important to remember that you own the property that the builder is going to be building on. With a typical home builder, the builder owns the property that the home is going on.
Some other things to keep in mind with a contractor include:
1. A custom builder is going to make a home that is suited directly towards you. You will get a place that matches what you want and exactly what you want. When you buy a typical home in the suburbs, you do not get a choice in how it looks, how many rooms are in it, nor the features that you get.
2. A custom home builder will often cost more than a typical builder. The reason for this is that the typical builder is making homes at a blistering pace. They are putting out 100 or so homes a year in various locations, which come out to about one home being built every three days anywhere in the country. A custom home builder will only build about 20 homes, if that and they take much longer to build homes. They are building homes to what you want and that often drives the price up.
3. A custom home builder is much more personal than a typical home builder. What we mean by this is that you will be working together with the custom home builder to ensure you get exactly what you are paying for. The typical home builder does not work along those same lines.
