New Home Building Tips to Make the Construction Process Less Stressful

POSTED ON October 30th  - POSTED IN Martell Home Builders

New Home Building Tips

Now that fall is here, and winter is around the corner, the best time to buy property is upon us. Your competition to find the perfect property goes way down during the holiday months. If you find a piece of land that you like in the winter, during the harshest climates, chances are you will love the property during all the other seasons of the year.
Once you find the perfect piece of land for your new home, there are a few key elements to keep in mind.

Below, We’ve Listed Our Top 3 Tips for Those Looking to Build a New Home

1. Pick the Right Builder

This might be the most important decision you make during this process. Check references and speak with previous customers. Builders should be insured and routinely build the type of new home that you’re looking for. Doing your research will ensure that you’re hiring a builder with a good reputation and an experienced crew.

2. Choose the Floor Plan that Works Best for You and Your Family

A floor plan serves as a baseline for your project. Be sure to plan for the future when designing your new home’s layout. Do not just focus on your current lifestyle. Come with ideas and the home builder will follow your lead. One of the biggest joys of building new is that you get to customize the home to your personal style, wants and needs. So come with plenty of inspiration.

3. Leave Room for Additional Costs and Budget for the Unexpected

Delays are part of the construction process and can carry additional costs. Labor costs, building permit fees and altering the property before construction are all things you need to take into consideration in addition to the time and materials to build the home itself. Having a rough idea of these costs will help you to budget more effectively. Always leave room in your budget for unforeseen circumstances.

Good luck!

Choosing the right team and having a clear vision will help make the process less intimidating and more enjoyable. Designing your own home creates a certain personal value that you cannot find on the existing housing market. Building your new home from the ground up can be an incredibly rewarding experience with benefits that last a lifetime.
