If you’ve decided it’s time to build the home of your dreams have you also done your research into who you want to build it? Sure it’s easy to go through model homes and look at pictures on Pinterest to get ideas. But have you spent time investigating your options of who will construct your home? After all it’s going to be yours for many years to come and you definitely don’t want to get stuck with a “lemon”.
Just a few of the things that should cross your mind… and that you should check out on before signing contracts:
- BATC Member – if building in the Twin City area this is a must!
- BBB Member – are they accredited and what is their complaint record look like?
- Referrals / Walkthroughs – If no model is available can you tour a past client’s home?
- Referrals – Do they have significant positive feedback from past clients?
- Other Online Referrals / Complaints – Review these with a grain of salt, one disgruntled person can do a lot of damage, but still worth every second of the search.
This might seem like a lot of work, but I promise you if it takes you 2-3 hours to weed out some bad builders, that’s nothing compared to the 70,000 + hours you will spend on average in your next home before selling!
