Being left in the dark is rarely a good thing – especially when it comes to your future home builder.
As you are beginning the process of searching for a new home, you want to have all the answers before the building process begins.
In order to achieve this, you need to ask the right questions. And we have a list all ready to go for you.
Use the questions below to guide your search for the ideal home builder.
1) What type of warranty do you offer? What Is and Isn’t Covered?
You don’t want to wait until something goes wrong before you get the facts. Make sure to get the answer to this question early on in your search and check to see if it is included in your home builder’s contract.
2) Do You Have Model Homes I can Walk Through?
If you really want to get a feel for the quality you can expect from your home builder, then check and see if they have open model homes available to walk through.
3) Are you Licensed and Insured in the State Where I am Building My Home?
If your builder or their subcontractors are not licensed in the state that you are looking to build in, then it’s time to move on to a different home builder.
4) Do You Have a Design Center?
Working with a home builder that does not have a design center will make things much more difficult for you.
At Holmes Homes, our design center is staffed with talented designers that work with our customers to make sure that their home is created to meet their precise requirements.
5) How Often Can I Expect to Be in Contact with You?
This question will give you some insight into your home builder’s customer service, which can have a large impact on your overall experience. Ask the builder what their process is to see if you can come up with a communication plan that works for you.
At Holmes Homes, we want you to enjoy your home-building process from start to finish. This is why we place a heavy emphasis on stellar customer service. One of our most appreciated customer service features is the New Buyer Orientation. This gives our clients the opportunity to meet and get to know the team that will be working with them through this important journey.
6) What Is Your Completion Timeline?
After reviewing your plans, a good home builder should be able to give you an accurate estimate for completion. Ask about their building schedule and deadlines to set realistic expectations so that there is no confusion down the line.
7) Why Should I Choose You Over Another Builder?
Every home builder has their strengths and weaknesses and they should be able to summarize them for you. This question will help you determine if they have the skills that you want in a home builder.
At Holmes Homes, our customers receive the advantage of unique floorplans, innovative construction techniques and exceptional customer service.
There are many questions involved in the search for a home builder, so feel free to add more to this list. Getting the answers to your questions before you sign with a home builder will give you a major advantage as you move forward.
We’d like to congratulate you on your journey toward the home of your dreams.
