What To Ask Before Choosing A Custom Home Builder

August 23, 2019

Building a custom home is an exciting, yet stressful process. The thought of owning your dream home that fits your exact specifications is a very attractive option and can be a pleasant thing to daydream about. However, the reality of budgets, building company capabilities, and timelines can shake us from our vision and bring us back to reality.

That being said, finding the right company to build your home can make the process a lot easier and even fun. If you’re looking for a trusted custom home building company, here’s a list of helpful questions to ask yourself before committing to a particular builder.

Can They Give You What You Want?

This is the first and most important question to ask yourself. After all, it’s why you’re going through the process of building a custom home in the first place. When you’re interviewing custom builders, be very specific in what you are looking for. From the kitchen cabinets to the crown molding in the living room, see if they can deliver exactly what you’re looking for.

On top of that, if you’re struggling with coming up with a vision for a particular room, it’s important to ask if they can provide the design vision you need to fill in the gaps.

Can They Stay Within Your Budget And Timeline?

Almost any custom home building company can give you exactly what you want if you pay them an exorbitant amount to do it. The trick is can they get the job done while staying within your budget. 

Another important thing to consider is timeline. If you need the home done — especially if you’re in a time crunch to move and be in a new home — in a certain amount of time, make sure the builder can accommodate your schedule.

How Will They Address Your Concerns Before, During, And After Construction?

Customer service is a key component of the building process. When you choose a builder, you want to be sure they’re committed to your satisfaction through every step of the process. After all, you’re paying good money for your new home and you should expect it to turn out exactly right.

Talk to your builder and see how they handle communication at every step of the process. Chances are if they aren’t open to your questions before they’ve closed the deal, they’ll be even less inclined to take care of you once the building process has started.
