Why might you prefer to choose a builder early on? The process is so complex that most owners need professional guidance from the beginning to avoid mistakes in site selection, home design and written specifications.
Your budget probably shouldn't be among the top criteria in selecting a builder. No builder can quote an accurate price for a custom or semi-custom home until he or she knows the type, style, finishes and features of the home, the site conditions and the type of contract you want to use for construction.
Rather than focusing on cost, you may well want to base your decision on the builder's competence, reputation, professionalism, warranty coverage and experience. Here are six criteria to consider:
Beyond these factors, the most important consideration is the quality of the builder's homes. Cost is not a direct measure of quality. Rather, good quality is the merging of good design with appropriate products and materials that are installed with superior workmanship. The most expensive window might not look or perform any better than a substantially less expensive window. But improper installation of that window will diminish its quality, regardless of its cost. Generally, costly finishes and fixtures won't offset shoddy application or installation.
