Building New...Have you started th e process yet?

There are a lot of steps to settle when building new.


1. Do you have a floor plan?

2.Do you have a competent builder?

3. If you have a plan, is the builder willing to use it?

4. Do you have land picked out. 

5. If a lot in a development do you understand the restrictions.?

6. A non-development lot, have you checked with the governing Authority as to your plans?

7. The floor plan, was it professionally drawn or just a sketch you made?

8. Are you willing to change the plan some if it dos not meet building specs.

9. Have you talked with a lender.

10. Have gotten your construction loan and permanent loan all set?


Now I can go on and on.

These steps can take a few weeks or a few months.

If you are going to build new, you have to get started right away before the builders are all  booked up.

William - our builders are very booked and our subcontractors are limited. Building prices continue to rise and this impacts all real estate prices.

There is a lot that goes into new construction for sure. New home buyers need to know what they should expect from the process.
