Building a new home can seem like an overwhelming process, from coordinating financing, designing your home, working with the city for building permits, choosing a builder, coordinating the construction and closing your loan.
We can help you as much or as little as you want. You may already have some contacts for a few of the resources you’ll need, so we can either help you fill in a few blanks or help you find the entire team that will make your custom home a reality.
Going through the building process isn’t for everybody, but there are plenty of other options still available to you when choosing a home. Many contractors build new homes on spec, meaning that they’ve never been lived in and they are simply looking for a buyer.
You could also consider buying an existing older home. Most homes are move-in ready, but many people buy existing homes with the intention of improving them or adding on to them. Maybe you want to finish off the basement, add a deck or a garage? There are some loan options that allow you to build the improvement costs into the original loan which can make things very convenient from a financial perspective. Gregory Brown is licensed Realtor and can help you look at options if this sounds like it’s a bit more up your alley.
One of the biggest questions we hear asked is what kinds of features are included in a home. Well, with a custom home, you as the buyer are the person who decides what features you want included in your home. We’ve seen everything from vinyl siding on the exterior to save money to hand selected natural rock quarried and shipped up from Mexico.
With that said, we’ve compiled a list of features that you would probably expect in an entry price level. Just keep in mind that if you can think of it, it can be done and most builders are willing to accommodate it as long as it fits in the budget.
