Embarking on the Dream
For most people, building a new home is the biggest investment in their lives. Because it’s such a big decision, prospective homebuyers want to be sure they get it right. Before you start picking paint colors and looking at carpet samples, you need to select the right homebuilder for your needs and situation. Your custom home is one of the largest and most personal investments you’ll make. After all, this is the house that will host your family’s memories for years to come.
The right builder will understand your unique needs and vision, let you participate in the design and building process, and craft a well-built home within the budget you’ve set.
An important and complex project like this takes the right partner. To help you do just that, here are tips and information – before you select your custom homebuilder – that will help make your project not only result in a beautiful home, but also a beautiful experience.
1. Select a Lender
You’d be wise to get a construction mortgage pre-approval by a mortgage lender before you begin the homebuilding process. It confirms your budget and your financial credibility to the homebuilders. If you are not pre-approved at the time you select your homebuilder, the builder might refer you to lender they work with closely. The builder may even tell you that you must use this lender to start construction, but the truth is that you can work with any lender you choose. Winslow Custom Homes can refer you to several excellent mortgage lenders, but the final choice is always yours.
2. Identify Your Needs
Decide what type of home you want and need and how much you want to spend. Most custom homebuilders specialize to some degree and may build in a certain price range or type of home. Are you a first-time homebuyer, a move-up, an empty-nester, or finally building the custom home of your dreams? Whichever category you’re in, search for builders who fit your need.
3. Be Clear About Your Wants
You should compare homebuilders and what they can offer, so be as clear as you can with what you want from them. Let them know the style of the home you want to build – Cape Cod, country French, Colonial, Victorian, Tudor, Craftsman, cottage, Mediterranean, ranch, and contemporary, to name just a few, as well as essentials, such as hardwood floors or an all-season sunroom. If you neglect to mention these things to you homebuilder, then your new home is likely to go over budget.
