When building your dream home, it is important to do everything possible to insure that the process does not turn into a nightmare. Cannon Custom Homes insures that the process of building your dream house goes as smoothy as possible. Here are five tips to help you along the way!
1. Unrealistic Budget
When building your custom home, we want to insure that we include quality materials for every aspect of your home. An unrealistic expectation of budget can easily hinder the planning of your home, therefore, have realistic expectations that will be required of your home based on the features you want.
2. Finding the Perfect Lot
Consult with your custom home builder before you buy land. Your builder will be able to steer you clear of any unwanted surprises that come with the purchase of your lot. The unexpected costs that your builder finds could save you tens of thousands of dollars; money that could be spent in more important places such as your master bedroom or the kitchen. The lot you find may appear to be your dream location with stunning views and rolling hills, but always consult your builder before purchasing.
3. The Right Builder
The term “custom home builder” provides multiple definitions in this industry. A builder may be limited to certain floor plans, designs, or even locations. When building your dream home, it may be difficult to maintain your vision while being stuck in someone else’s parameters. At Cannon Custom Homes, we offer nearly limitless possibilities! We can provide ANY floor plan with ANY features that you want. We will insure that the unique vision for your dream home is kept.
4. Accurate Estimates
When you are shopping for a builder, do not settle for the first low price you hear. This builder may very well be quoting an unrealistically low price in order to simply win the sale.
When you are shopping for estimated costs from custom builders, don’t just use the price. The difference is in the details. Write down all the features you picture in your dream home and then do a side-by-side comparison for each builder. Double check to see if the features you want are in the estimated price and then add up these totals for a more accurate estimate. This could save you tens of thousands of dollars in hidden costs.
5. Find the Right Team
Building a home requires a team of experts all working together on every detail of your house. Attempting to coordinate dates and deadlines with multiple contacts can be an overwhelming and frustrating process. With Cannon Custom Homes, you will meet with the builder/owner himself and all communication you have will be to/from him-not a sales rep or a site manager. We are a full service, turn-key custom home builder. All coordinating and research will be taken care of for you, leaving you more time to design your ultimate dream home.
