Build a New Construction Home in Just Five Steps
Just what goes into building a new home? This endeavor requires construction crews, permits, knowledgeable foreman and many supplies. Some homebuyers, especially those who are new to the world of real estate may be very nervous about building a home. When the task of building a home seems overwhelming, know that everything can really be broken down into five simple steps.
Step 1- Find a Real Estate Agent: It might not occur to all homebuyers interested in building to look for an agent but this step can lead to substantial savings of both time and money. An experienced agent can find lots, negotiate with builders and explain which upgrades will pay off down the road. Our agents are well-connected in Hampton Roads and introduce their clients to just about anyone who can help in the building process.
Step 2- Decide Budget and Time Limitations: The construction of a new home is not to be taken lightly; in most cases it can be a pretty big undertaking. Before diving into building a house, it is best to set some guidelines. Figure out just how much money you can spend on this project and try to stay well below that figure in case unexpected expenses arise. Estimate time limitations and know exactly how many months you can spare before you need to have this home ready.
Step 3- Choose a Builder and Architect: Who will build this new property? The next course of action is finding an experienced home building team. Depending upon the scope of the project, buyers may need to enlist the help of an architect or surveyor too. Builders in the new home industry are highly skilled and trained in creating dwellings that are safe and easy on the eyes. Meeting with the builder one-on-one will give buyers insight into what results they will most likely see in the finished residence.
Step 4- Select Land: Location, Location, Location! Choosing land is an essential part of the home building process. Construction can't commence without a site and this is one piece of real estate that buyers will more than likely be looking at for a long time, so make this decision count. An agent or builder can help you find just the right lot or you can search on your own through websites and online listings. Before you sign anything, have a real estate professional check out the proposed land to ensure that it will not need extensive leveling or other costly issues resolved.
Step 5- Decide on a Home Design or Floor Plan: The final step is actually the favorite part for many buyers. Choosing a home layout or floor plan is a wonderful way to customize your new construction home. Make this property special even before the foundation is laid by selecting a design that will serve your family well.
