CRUCIAL TIPS FOR YOUR FIRST-TIME HOME BUILD
Building a home will likely be one of the largest projects you ever take on. It can be emotionally and physically DRAINING. I know this from first-hand experience, and I’m making it easier for you by sharing my CRUCIAL tips for your first-time home build below.
HAVE AS MANY FINISHES PICKED OUT AS POSSIBLE BEFORE YOU BREAK GROUND
Choosing finishes (e.g. home exterior materials or flooring) early will keep your build process on time and running smoothly. You will find that some finishes are on backorder or have a long ship time. Other finishes may no longer be available, so this allows you time to go back to the drawing board and make a different selection.
Picking out items early allows for the products to be in your builder’s possession as soon as the subcontractors are ready to install. Believe me … you want things ready to go when your subs are ready to work on your home. Otherwise, you might wait a long time while they complete another project.
BE PREPARED TO GO OVER BUDGET (BUT IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE A LOT)
Everyone says ‘YOU’LL GO OVER BUDGET’ … and I agree to some extent. HOWEVER, I was able to stay VERY close to budget because I was extremely clear with my builder about the caliber of finishes I wanted BEFORE he priced our custom home.
IF YOUR BUDGET IS TIGHT, LET YOUR TOP PRIORITY BE YOUR GUIDE
If you have a tight budget, focus on elements of your future home that are most important to you. If you are more interested in fancy custom details in your home (e.g. window seats, crown molding, high-end appliances, custom cabinets, etc.), then focus your budget on the finishes rather than square footage.
TIPS FOR BUILDING A CUSTOM HOME
If you have been dreaming about building your dream home, it is time to make them into reality. Building a custom home can be a daunting yet exciting experience. Realizing a dream comes with many challenges. However, all of these can be addressed by one simple thing — careful planning. So, if you’re ready to make your dream home a reality,
Choose the Right Builder For You
Choosing the best is not enough. Sometimes, it is about choosing the right one for your needs. A builder may be the best in building regular custom homes, or they can be better for building a green and sustainable home. In some cases, you can find a local builder that’s both. That’s why you should look for the right contractor who will help you achieve a sustainable home. Looking for builders specializing in green homes is not hard, you just have to look at the right places. Still, you have to make sure that your builder is trustworthy and reliable before signing on the dotted line.
If you have several home builders bidding for your home project, don’t always go for the lowest bidder. You have to take into consideration that sometimes, builders will lower their costs just to win the bid. This means you wind up getting what you pay for, and your dream home will suffer from lower quality materials and workmanship. Some builders will give you a lower bid but charge you later on with add-ons.
Work with a Lawyer
When you build a custom home, you are going to invest good money in it. You have to make sure that all your hard work will produce results. Aside from working with the right contractor, you also have to hire a trustworthy lawyer to take a look-see at your construction contract. Make sure all your bases are covered. Sometimes paying a small attorney fee is enough to save you thousands of dollars if anything goes south during the construction
Check the Lot
Before deciding to buy land, don’t forget to investigate the community. Knowing the crime rate and local amenities is an excellent way to start your investment before you purchase land. It also helps to know the history of the area in case there is a red flag you would want to know about. Choose an area that has easy accessibility to schools, commercial districts, and restaurants.
Guide To Buying A New Construction Home
What You Should Know About Buying A New Construction Home
Most of the tips for buying a home are directed to people who are purchasing an existing home. However, some buyers do not want to live in a pre-owned home, and they would much rather have a brand new property. This type of purchase comes with its own set of challenges, and the rules that apply to pre-lived homes are not necessarily the same for new construction. If the thought of buying a new construction home intrigues you, read on for more details.

How to Identify a Good New Construction Home Builder
Finding a good builder can be a long and drawn-out process, with plenty of scars to bear if not done correctly. Your home is your everything, so you need to be sure that only qualified and professional builders come into contact with it. There are phone books, cork boards and an internet full of builder names, but how do you know if any of them are the right ones for your build?
There is nothing quite as effective as recommendations from trusted colleagues, friends, or family when you are looking at buying a new construction home. Ask around and the put word out that you are actively looking for local builders. Within a short amount of time you should have some reliable referrals from your sphere of influence.
When you are looking for your next builder, unification sites can be very helpful. There are two market-leading websites that offer a database of builders alongside recommendations. One of them, MyBuilder, relies on clients to provide searchable feedback about their builder and the workmanship once the project has been completed. Each builder’s rating is determined by how positive their feedback is.
First-Time Building Mistakes to Avoid
Building a new home is a dream for many people. Getting exactly what you want in your house is the end result — you hope. But challenges will face you through many of the steps. Mistakes, delays and Mother Nature happen, and sometimes your patience or checking account runs low.
To avoid some pitfalls of building a new home so you come out on the other end with all smiles, two home building experts talk about what to avoid and what to watch for during the entire process.
This is someone building from a pretty predetermined plan and options. You don’t get to change anything. The good thing with production home is that you get to walk through a model home, and you get a quick delivery. You can visualize what you will get. It’s usually cheaper, and they are usually national builders and building a mass quantity of homes.
This is typically a local or regional builder. You start from a plan. You can make edits and customizations. You can walk through a model getting the benefit of seeing what it could look like. It’s a little more expensive than a production builder house and it might take a little more time.
The biggest difference from the other two is the builder designs around your lifestyle. The other is you designing your life around the home, says. Custom homes start from a blank slate. The disadvantage is you can’t see the house. You can look at plans and see a 3-D plan to get an idea, but you can’t walk through the house. This doesn’t necessarily make it more expensive, though. If you have a good building partner and you have a budget, the builder will help you craft the home and not go over your budget.
