Our team at DC1 Homes understands that just about everyone dreams of one day building a custom dream home, but few people take steps to make this dream a reality. If you are interested in building a custom home from scratch, you will need the help of experienced new construction home builders like those on our team. Of course, finding qualified new construction home builders can be trickier than it sounds, so in this article, we will go over a few tips on how to choose the best team for the job.
- Make a List of Candidates. In order to choose the best new construction home builders for your project, you will first need to research builders in your area and make a list of candidates. A few things you can do to find potential candidates are contact your local builders’ association, reach out to local real estate agents, check the real estate section of your newspaper, and simply ask around your social circle or neighborhood.
- Vet Your Options. The next step you will need to take to choose the right new construction home builders is to interview your candidates in order to make sure they are qualified for the job. We recommend that you reach out to each candidate and ask a few questions—for example, how long have they been working in the industry? Do they carry insurance? We also encourage you to ask each candidate for a list of client references for you to contact, as speaking to past clients is the surest way to get an accurate idea of what the building company will be like to work with.
