Choosing a Custom Home BuilderTalk to the Builders’ Clients

Buying or building a custom home is one of the most significant investments you will make. So choosing the right home and the right builder is paramount. The Custom Builders Council understands the importance of this decision and wants to help provide some guidance. The necessity of good research can not be understated. You are going to need reliable information so that you can reach the decision that is right for you.

This information is reprinted from the Custom Builders Council web site.  Here are additional tips on "Selling Your Existing Home" and on "Buying A New Home".

Ask the Builders to supply you with references. Scale the number of references you want to the number of homes the Builder has built. Ask for at least three from a Builder who hasn’t built a lot of homes. Ask for ten from a Builder who has built 40 homes. Make sure to call the references. Ask them about their experience with the Builder, the process and their satisfaction with the end result.
