What Are the 10 Keys to Choosing the Perfect Custom Home Builder?

Posted on June 1, 2017

Selecting the right custom home builder for your needs and for the type of new home you seek is one of the most important decisions you’ll make in your home buying process.

Fortunately, there are some proven ways to speed up the research and selection process and to help ensure that you find a quality builder who’s a good match to construct your new home.

10 Ways to Choose the Right Home Builder
1. Define your needs. What size, type and price range of home do you need?
2. Experience counts. While every builder was once a new builder, experience matters.
3. Are past buyers satisfied? Ask for – and check – references from past home buyers.
4. Select the community that fits your lifestyle. View. Amenities, Gated Entry, Waterfront
5. Is there a design fit? Does this builder have expertise in the style of home you seek?
6. Understand Cost of Ownership. Check the HOA Fee or Club Fees to gain better understanding.
7. Resale value. Have past homes from this builder maintained or increased value?
8. Industry involvement. Is the builder a member of the local Home Builder’s Association?
9. Tour model homes or customer homes. There’s absolutely no substitute for this step.
10. Look for signs of quality. In workmanship, materials and practices when you tour these homes.
