Building your dream home can be a challenge; however, selecting a new home builder with the experience, custom designs, and a quality reputation is simple if you know what you’re looking for. In this article, we share tips on how to choose a home builder for your brand new home.

What should you look for in a home builder?

Whether you are planning a renovation, knockdown or a new build, you will need to ensure you ask the right questions to ensure you have a builder that meets your needs and budget. Locally owned and operated builders offer a personal service, and deal with owners directly, offering a personal service that provides peace of mind from the start of the build to completion and beyond.

To ensure you are choosing a builder that is of the highest standard, be sure to explore their past builds and whether they have a history of quality work. Many new home builders and building specialists that are specialists in their field are recipients of industry awards and accolades and checking out any awards is a great way to check if you are choosing a builder that is a local expert.

Builders that are highly regarded are respected in their community, by both local trades and their customers – be sure to check out reviews and explore display homes to get a clear idea on previous work and to ensure their references and reputation check out.

What questions should you ask your home builder?

Before you jump into choosing your home builder, it is important to explore some important elements to ensure you are getting the perfect home to meet your needs and budget.

We’ve outlined some considerations ahead of choosing your home builder:

Location – Understanding the local areas the builder works in is a great way to find out if they are a good fit. Many new home builders have specific locations they build in, allowing for more competitive prices and an abundance of quality trades and support.

Price – You do get what you pay for when it comes to building a new home or creating a knockdown/rebuild, and understanding the total costs is important. Often, new home prices can seem too good to be true, and you want to find a builder that offers transparent quotes and an all-inclusive price for new home builds.

Services – From house and land packages, knockdown and rebuilds and new home design, your builder should offer a range of building services that accommodates your needs.

Design – Search for a builder that understands your lifestyle and can create a custom design that suits how you live. Choose a builder that takes the time to fine-tune your floor plan so that your design is a perfect match for you and your family.

To gain an insight into the custom new homes potential home builders have created, it is always a great idea to check out display homes and finished products to get a feel for whether the home builder suits your style and creates high-end home designs.
