Researching home builders when choosing to build a new custom home is excellent. However, it can’t answer every question about finding the best team to work with. When you find a builder you like, there are questions you should ask before signing on the dotted line.
What Makes You Different from Other Home Builders?
This question is especially great if you’re considering a few different home builders. The answer they provide will help you get a sense of the perks, their specialties, and what they value about themselves. This way, you find a company that you align with and checks all the boxes.
Who Will Be My Point of Contact and Who Will Oversee My Home Build?
Different companies have different procedures. Whether you will be working with a member of the sales team, a site manager, or another contact can affect your experience. So, you should ask who you’ll be speaking with throughout the process and ask for an introduction. You’ll want to be comfortable and be able to communicate freely with your contact.
What Standard Features Do Your New Home Builds Include?
Just as it’s essential to understand the upgrade options, it’s also beneficial to know the standard features. This can clear up any confusion about what is included automatically and what isn’t. This way, you won’t be blindsided by any extra costs that you unknowingly selected.
How Do You Handle Obstacles in the Home Building Process?
Like anything else, hiccups are almost inevitable during the building process. Asking this question will clarify how communication will work during complications. For instance, will there be transparency? How will they handle bad news and difficult situations? Knowing the answers will show you how interactions will be overall.
