Choosing a Home Builder

Thanks to low interest rates and reduced spending due to stay at home orders, homes are selling extremely fast throughout much of the country. In addition to families looking to upgrade to a larger living space, several Millennials and first-time buyers are actively looking to purchase their first home. According to Statista, 58.1% of Millennials are expected to own a home by 2025.

Used home inventory is at an all-time low. Instead of waiting months for the right used home to hit the market, prospective buyers could benefit from speaking with an experienced home builder. Buying a new construction home allows buyers to eliminate many of the maintenance and repair costs associated with older homes and appliances. It also allows buyers to personalize their home to their own unique style and needs.

While working with a home builder provides numerous benefits, it’s important to take your time when selecting a builder. Purchasing a home is one of the biggest investments most people make. Locating the right builder ensures a smooth and successful home building process.

Create a Concept Plan

Before contacting a builder, it’s important to think about what you want and need in a home. Make sure to consider any future plans and goals in addition to the immediate needs of your family.

An experienced home builder can show you different layouts and plans. They work with you to develop a design that meets both your functional and aesthetic needs.

Make a List of Your Specifications

Before speaking with a builder, make a list of the appliances, finishes, fixtures, and accessories you would like included with your home. Make sure to work with a builder that offers a variety of options. It’s also important to ask what’s included for the price.

Consider The Floor Plans Offered By The Home Builder

Be sure to consider all the options – builders offer a wide variety of options for buyers to personalize their homes and make it their own.

Floor Plans for homes are often pre-determined – as they have been designed over many years of people living in them and providing feedback – but this means that purchasers have excellent and proven options to choose from.

Research Your Home Builder

Conduct thorough research on the builders, and if they have any experience working in the specific area where you are interested in living – be sure to check out their history, on-line reviews, etc.

Additionally, sales representatives are very knowledgeable and can provide great insights. Don’t be afraid to ask questions!

Consider Home Builder Warranty Programs

Homebuyers looking to purchase a new construction home should consider a home builder’s warranty. Unlike a home warranty, which covers mostly appliances, a home builder’s warranty covers structural elements, materials, and workmanship.

Although the features and elements covered vary from one warranty to the next, this important warranty provides new homeowners with peace of mind and protection if something goes wrong with the structural elements of the home.
