How to Choose Your Perfect Home Builder

When it comes to buying a new home, there are so many things to consider. Where should your new home be located? What size should it be? Should you buy new construction or pre-owned? Answering these questions can be difficult (and even a little stressful), and each one often leads to even more questions. At Rezide, we want to lower your stress and help you make the right decisions for you and your family. We know a thing or two about building lifelong homes in super-desirable locations, and we want to share some of our expertise with you! Check out our blog on choosing to build a new home vs. buying an older home. And, if you decide a newly built or even custom-built home is the right choice for you, here are a few tips for choosing your perfect home builder.

Timing is everything

Get a head start on planning because timing is everything. The sooner you find your builder the better. You can simplify and eliminate the need to work with an architect or designer first if you go with a home-building company that does all the work for you. You might have a vision for your new home, but you might also be surprised at how many ready-made new homes fit that vision…without the extra time and hassle of choosing a separate architect and contractor. The perfect home builder will have both cost and time in front of mind and will find ways to keep them both down.

Pay attention to a builder’s reputation

This is where you do your research. Read testimonials, listen to word of mouth, do a little digging on the internet…these are all good ways to find out just what other clients think about the home their builders put up. In the home-building industry, reputation is everything and you can figure out fairly quickly who’s the perfect fit for you.

Learn about a home builder’s work quality in person

Luxury, high-performance homes sound great and you can do a lot of the investigative legwork, but you really need to see the home builder’s work up close. Step inside one of their model homes or homes currently for sale, and you’ll get a feel for the level of quality and craftsmanship they’ll be using on your new home.

You’ve heard it before – Location, location, location

You’re going to want to work with a builder who knows your desired area like the back of their hand. Is the location a good fit for your family? For instance, Woodstock, Georgia is booming, family-friendly, and has a thriving downtown scene. It’s truly the perfect location, and our team at Rezide Properties knows Woodstock better than any other home builder.

Ask questions!

Don’t be afraid to ask your questions and keep yourself in the driver’s seat. Your home builder is working for you and should be able to answer any questions you might have about your property and the home you’re building for your family. If you keep an open dialogue with your builder, you’ll find the perfect one for you.
