So you have decided to build a home. Great! Now how in the heck do you go about it? You see, constructing a home is much more than just finding a model home you like and signing the dotted line. In these videos you can find very useful guide for main steps.
made these more visible for the relevant searches.
The first step in constructing a home is deciding what exactly you want. You will need to check out model homes from different builders. This is much easier said than done, however.
The model homes that you will be viewing for ‘ideas’ are going to be the best of the best. That is to say, everything you see is not everything you get with the attractive listed price set forth by the builder. In fact, all of those wonderful extras that you will see come with a higher price. You must be certain of how each extra feature that you decide you want is going to change the price of your prospective home.
As you walk in, you will see the most attractive scene you could possibly have imagined. The décor will be pristine; not a dust bunny in sight; pure perfection from baseboard to ceiling. The builder is selling you on their style, remember?
Perhaps the most useful part of this ‘initial phase’ is that you are able to see current trends in action. From strategic interior neutral colors that change in sunlight to wide-plank hardwood flooring, current styles will be emphasized. Natural lighting will certainly be at the forefront, especially in the Charlotte area.
Whatever trends that you see on display that are attractive to you, it is absolutely essential that you communicate with your REALTOR° as to what you should and shouldn’t include in your building plan. There are several items that don’t need to be included with your builder for various reasons. Our team will steer you in the right direction.
Keep in mind that builders have several floor plans. The model floor plan is the most commonly used, but it certainly isn’t your only option.
Your REALTOR° will help you determine the exact items that are included in your building plan. This includes everything inside the home, the floor plan itself, and even the exterior presentation of the home. Landscaping is often left out of many new home builds because the buyer has a magical assumption that it is already included.
Our team will help you determine the best course of action to ensure that you get everything you want. No matter what, this is YOUR new home. With an understanding of what you will need to look for in your initial phase of planning, you will be better prepared to ensure that you get exactly what you desire.
