If you are dreaming of owning a home, it is essential to know your requirements. Before choosing the right builder you need to think about the most important requirements like the area, type of property, and the approximate budget of the house you plan to construct or buy.
This will help you to shortlist a few builders. After you narrowed your search a little bit, the next move is to do a short research online, attend real estate events and home fests where you can meet few builders and get to know there ongoing, upcoming and completed projects.
Friends and family are a great source of names for reliable builders in your area. If they had a good experience they will be happy to refer a builder to you. Same way, if they didn’t have a good experience they will let you know about that too.
Reputation Of The Builder
One thing to bear in mind is that a builder’s reputation is built on word of mouth, also a builder’s reputation is the most critical element that influences home buyer ‘s decision, once the criteria of affordability, appeal, and perceived quality are satisfied.
Your next step is to contact the builders that you would like to talk with and set up a meeting. Great home builders initiate the process of putting you at ease with the very first contact. There are certain things that you want to know.
Most importantly, you must find out how long has the builder been in business and how many projects have they completed. You should know how they operate their business and do they have a permanent office. Check out the ratings and if there have been any complaints filed in the past. Ask if they have a model house ready where you can visit and check the quality of construction.
Ask for few references of their existing customers and talk to them directly by visiting the project and verify the quality of construction the builders are providing. Check what type of amenities and facilities are available within the project, the location of the project and how good is the connectivity to the city and to your work place
