When looking to build, it’s easy for people to make a mistake when choosing a builder. And when it comes to investing time and life savings into a project, it’s a big mistake to make. But how are they supposed to know what to look for when choosing out of a sea of builders who all appear the same? Here are some ways to differentiate a reputable builder from the unreliable:
- Transparency: If all fees and costs aren’t outlined from the beginning, families will soon find themselves in a situation where additional costs are added to the project time and time again. It is incredibly common for this to happen, resulting in financial hardship, bankruptcy and the build never reaching completion.
- Fixed pricing: If pricing remains variable, families may find themselves in a similar situation to point #1, where budgets blow out, added extras are now required to complete the project and before they know it, they cannot afford to finish the build. When this happens, they are left with an empty shell of a dream home, with shattered dreams and an empty bank account, all because a fixed price agreement wasn’t signed at the beginning.
- Trust and honesty: These are important. If a builder gives off an untrustworthy vibe from the beginning, then chances are, they’re untrustworthy. This is a big investment and should be treated as such, it’s important for families to find a builder that aligns with their values. Building their dream home is a big investment. And when they’re dealing with their life savings and a bank loan, it would be a nightmare to find out the untrustworthy builder did a runner with their hard-earned savings.
- Communication: Updates, progress reports and clear communication is a must from the very beginning. The build will only get busier, so if the builder cannot reply to their client in a decent time frame at the beginning, it’s time to sound the alarm bells – things are going to get worse. Soon, they’ll be calling, leaving messages and writing countless emails without receiving one reply. Couples will be left wondering what is going on, feeling anxious about the status of their build and the progress not being made.
