More than a specific “type” of builder, you’re looking for the builder that is the right “fit” for you and your family. What are you looking for? There are really three main options depending on your particular situation.
First, if you don’t have property and don’t want the stress of having to think about the whole build process and all the options available, then a builder who offers pre-built land/home packages is your top of the list option. Here you can walk through and choose a home that’s available and ready to move-in.
Second, if you don’t have property and you want to live in a subdivision, but would like the option to choose your own selections, then working with a builder that offers what’s called a “Pick Your Lot, Pick Your Plan” home is what you’re looking for. This builder will provide different land/home packages to choose from, you’ll be able to customize some areas, then you’ll purchase the home and property together upon completion. In this option, you’ll have that custom feel you desire without the hassle of finding and purchasing your own property.
Finally, if you do have property or are looking land to purchase, then finding a plan you can fall in love with and customize to build into the home of your dreams with a builder who can understand your lifestyle . . . well, that’s the way you want to go.
But even more than all of that, finding a builder who has processes in place for customizing your home, for getting permits, for helping you choose all your interior and exterior selections, who already understands how to fulfill and pass inspections . . . find someone who isn’t riding their first rodeo. It’s about finding a builder you can trust! No one wants to be the first patient a doctor operates on, right?
