Building a Home? 5 Questions You Should Ask Your Builder

By February 7, 2022March 7th, 2022Buying Process, New Construction

You have made lists, budgets, and spreadsheets and finally settled on the perfect house plan. Your finances are also ready, you have done your due diligence and settled on your builder of choice, and now you are set to start your home building journey.

Be sure to ask the following questions before you commit:

  1. What Financing Plans Do You Offer?

Today, many financing options are available to homeowners who wish to design and build their dream homes. At Experience Homes, we can help you find flexible financing for your project. We can also help pay your closing costs in some instances to reduce your out-of-pocket expenses. We also work with a preferred lender to help resolve credit issues.

Additionally, we offer a home trade-in program where you can swap your old home with a brand new construction one. Our home trade-in options mean we will buy your old home in exchange for a new custom-built one. So you can select your dream home, help design it, and see it take shape. Then, once construction is complete, we will buy your current home.

The program is hassle-free and has no pressure, hidden fees, or realtors. What’s more, we can offer you up to 90% for your old home and save you the hassle of selling, putting your house on the market, multiple showings, and moving twice.

Will I be Actively Involved in the Design Process?

When building your dream home, you deserve a say every step of the way. At Experience Homes, we build long-lasting homes using the latest technology. But all our homes are built to suit the client’s personal needs and wants. We also offer customizable floor plans and can accommodate more upon request.

Additionally, we offer a broad selection of styles, designs, and finishes, including brick color, roof color, window color, exterior trim color, flooring type and color, hardware lighting, plumbing fixture color, and kitchen backsplash, among others.

Can I See Recent Projects You Have Completed and Meet the Owners?

A solid, reputable builder like Experience Homes with satisfied clients will not hesitate to provide a list of past customers. Past customers will tell you their home building experience with the builder and whether they were organized, pleasant to work with, and professional. Ask if they finished their project to their expectations, on time, and within budget. Also, look at the projects and homes to see if they appeal to your taste.

How Often Will I Receive Updates of the Budget and Schedule

Time and money are invaluable commodities during construction. However, a common complaint from homebuyers is they are frequently unsure of how much money they have left, how much the project needs for completion, and how much longer it will take. Timely updates allow you to make informed ongoing decisions on materials and finishes.

What Happens If a Problem Arises?

Home-building is a complex process, and issues often arise throughout the project duration. Ask how the builder guarantees their work, how they handle setbacks, and whether they offer a building maintenance period to fix any problems.
