Building a custom home is an exciting endeavor. You’ll have a new plot of land, a new foundation, new walls, and fresh decor. There is much to be enthusiastic about. Meanwhile, before you sign a contract with a potential custom home builder, you should ask at least the following four questions.
1. What Is Your Process?
“What is your process” is a general question, but it does not hurt to go from general to specific. A custom home building company should outline what they do to build the home of their customer’s dreams. It should be an organized and systematic method that is easy to follow. Viking Custom Homes has laid out their process on their website.
2. What Is Your Timeline?
More specifically, your custom home builder should give you an idea of what to expect concerning how long the design and construction will take. It is a practical question, because this way you can know more or less when your move-in date will be. Some building companies may be slower or swifter too, so this may affect what company you choose also.
3. How Much Can I Customize?
A custom home does not necessarily mean “design from scratch.” Many companies, like Viking Custom Homes, has a number of standard home designs from which to choose, besides features one can add to a chosen design. You should ask how much modification to standard models is allowed, too. Make sure you know what specific customizations you want to help you decide what builder would be best.
4. How Will I Receive Updates?
Clear expectations for how you will communicate with your custom home builder is essential. This includes expectations for the response time for emails, calls, etc. Your builder is your partner in erecting your dream home, so good communication is a must.
