Consider Your Budget

Before you start builder shopping, consider your budget. How much home can you afford? Take into account any options or upgrades you might want. Builders offer a range of home designs and floor plans at different price points, so it’s important to choose a builder whose homes align with your budget and financial goals.

Hire a Realtor

Yes, you can use a Realtor if you are purchasing a new construction home. Realtors often know the community you want to build in and the builders. They can point you toward builders that offer the floor plan you are looking for at a price you can afford.

Visit Model Homes

Most builders offer virtual model home tours via their website but it’s important to see them in person if you can. Walking through a model gives you a feel for what your new home will be like. You also have an opportunity to see firsthand the quality of construction, design features and finishes offered by each builder.

Review Home Designs and Floor Plans

Explore the home designs and floor plans offered by the builders. Consider factors such as the size and layout of the homes, number of bedrooms and bathrooms, architectural style and customization options available.

Research Builder Reputation

Write down the model homes you liked then research the builders. Look for reviews, testimonials and ratings from past homebuyers who have purchased homes from them. Pay attention to feedback regarding the builder’s construction quality, customer service and overall satisfaction with the homebuying experience.

Schedule Meetings with Builders

You can walk into any model home but for personalized attention, consider setting up appointments with builder representatives. Ask questions about the builder’s construction process, customization options, timeline for completion and financing options available.

Review Home Warranty and After-Sales Service

You want your new home to stand the test of time so be sure to inquire about the home warranty and after-sales service provided by each builder you are considering. A reputable builder should offer a comprehensive warranty program to protect your investment and address any issues that may arise after move-in.

Trust Your Instincts

Ultimately, trust your instincts when choosing a builder. Select a builder who demonstrates professionalism, transparency and a commitment to delivering a high-quality home that meets your expectations.
