Building a Home Advice

Image

Building a home advice is something most folks seek out. The fact is many of us dream of building a new home, but we just do not know how to go about it.

Since home building advice is something that’s asked for often, we have compiled a list of basic advice to get you started.

Building a Home Advice One

A key bit of advice is to make sure you have a piece of land that you can build on. This piece of land is required to be zoned and the land has to be leveled so that you do not have any hassles building your own home. If you are buying a lot in an existing subdivision you usually do not have much to worry about. This advice is in regards to raw land.

Building a Home Advice Two

Discuss with a home builder or architect what you have in mind for your new home. Request that they create a sketch of the plans discussed. Once happy with the sketches create detailed floor plans. Keep in mind that many builders already have many plans you can utilize or work from.

Building a Home Advice Three

Make sure you check out the credentials of the home builder you are interested in working with. Find out how long they have been in business. Ask for references and talk to these references. Check out the quality of their work by walking through a few homes built by the builder.

Building a Home Advice Four

Find out what type of insurance the builder you are interested in working with carries. Do they have personal liability? How about workmen’s compensation, and property damage? This will insure the homeowner is not held liable for any damage or injuries that may occur or if the home burns down during constructions.

Building a Home Advice Five

Ask the builder you select where they will be buying building materials from and if they have ever had any troubles with the materials. This is an important question because you want to make sure that the materials are of top quality and not substandard.

Building a Home Advice Six

Find out the length of time expected to complete the home building process. Time and the elements can delay progress for days or even weeks at a time. Also, there are various inspections by city or county officials that have to be done at different stages of the construction progress.

Hopefully the advice above will get you started down the right road. There are many other things you need to think about and get advice on including financing and walk thoughts.
