Building a home requires proper planning, time, resources, and a whole lot more. But more importantly, you want to ensure that the final results will be the perfect home of your dreams in style and functionality. For this to happen, it’s essential to take the time to select a professional custom home designer who can deliver the results you desire.
Custom Home Designer Tips: Choosing a Builder
In this blog, you’ll learn the step-by-step process of choosing the right home builder and everything you’ll need to avoid during the process.
Have a Clear Plan
The first step to finding the right hands for the job is to know the kind of home you want. Your concept plan should appeal to your style of living and reflect your needs, both present and future. Reputable builders always have a portfolio of blueprints that you can look through to select a style that suits your needs. You can then work with the builder to add your personal touches.
Have Well-Written Specifications
When your concept plan is detailed enough with precise specifications, it will be easier to compare home builders. First, have a written list of the fixtures, appliances, accessories, and home finishings that match your taste. Once you put together your list, meet with builders and obtain estimates based on your specifications.
Get an Estimate
Meeting with various builders can inspire you with their diverse styling options while reviewing your specifications. Get the estimate in writing. Having multiple estimates helps you compare home builders more easily. Don’t forget to consider the builders’ timeline.
Insured and Bonded
Accidents can happen during a building project. To be on the safe side, check that your contractor is insured and bonded – it will prevent any delays on your project in the event of a mishap.
Making the Final Selection
After you’ve followed the process above, do the following:
- Compare the previous work of several builders. Check their references.
- Make a final budget and include contingency funds (money to deal with unforeseen problems or delays)
- Discuss the details of the entire project with each builder on your final list
- Reach a contractual agreement with your preferred builder
