3 Most Common Questions to Ask Your Custom Home Builder

There were 1,682,000 building permits issued in May 2021. A lot of new homes are being constructed!

Building a home can be exciting and terrifying at the same time. You may have a lot of questions spinning around in your mind.

When you decide to hire a custom home builder, you have to put your confidence in them and trust that they will honor the vision that you have in your mind for your new home.

Before you hire any home builder you need to make sure that you ask some very important questions. Here are the top three questions that you should ask.

1. How Much Can I Customize?

Before you even ask this question you need to be clear about how much you want to customize your home. Do you want your builder to show you a blueprint of houses and then allow you to add touches to what was selected, or do you want to select every feature of your home?

Custom home builders prefer when you are clear about what you want from custom home building. Tell your home builder about everything that you would like in your home and find out how much they can accommodate you.

2. How Much Will It Cost?

This is perhaps the most important question you should ask your home builder. Before you start building your dream house you need to know how much it will cost you.

You should be aware of the features that are included in the base price of the home and the ones that you can get by adding packages.

Normally, the cost that custom home builders give you as a base price already has important features included. You will most likely be given package options that you can add to the basic construction package.

When comparing the prices charged by builders if you find that one builder charges very little compared to the others you need to ask if features such as electrical, plumbing, and tiling are included in the package. The price may be low simply because these important features will be added on as packages later.

3. What Is the Process Like?

There’s a process involved when building custom homes. Whether you are building a large home or a tiny home, before you can start building your custom home, the builder is will want to know some information.

This information will include, the size of the lot that you have, neighborhood restrictions that may be in place, and your overall budget.

Based on these three criteria your builder can point you towards a style of home that will fit into these parameters. Once this has been done the customization process can begin. You will likely go through several drafts before you are completely satisfied.
