When it comes to custom home construction, the biggest issue, as surprising as this is, is not at all about the building process itself.
Most custom homeowners report that the most challenging part is deciding on which contractor to go with, or rather trust.
We see the truth in that.
Between the online reviews and the horror stories, you get to hear from other homeowners, making the decision can be daunting, especially because this is your custom home, and you have a lot to lose when things go south.
To ensure you entrust your dream to a qualified and reliable expert, here’s what you need to do.
- Decide on what you want for your custom home
You’ve probably been dreaming of this moment for as long as you can remember. Now is the time to start putting the pieces together, that is, your custom home design, layouts, features, and styles.
Once you are done with that, you can narrow your choices to the specifics based on your goals.
This way, when you present what you want to your builders, they will strive to give you something in the direction of your vision.
- Find potential custom builders
This might be the most challenging and lengthy process, but be intentional on who you consider a potential prospect and where you’re looking.
A good place will be talking to family, friends, and neighbors who have had experiences with builders.
Once you’ve had a list, check out these builders’ websites, find out more about their previous projects, and if possible, you can go physically to see the properties they’ve worked on.
- Contact the potential custom home builder
Make a move and call them. You want someone you can reach out to, and they respond.
So, if a builder is not accessible, that’s a red flag; unless there’s an important reason for that, move to the next.
- Hold interviews
The best way to know what they can offer is to get into a room with them. Create a list of questions you’d like to ask, and be prepared to take notes and see how they respond to your questions.
A reputable contractor will be open to interacting with you and answering all your questions to clear your doubts.
