Create a Budget, and Stick to It

It can be easy to get excited and throw caution to the wind when you are building a custom home. The very first thing you should do is decide how much you are willing to spend on the adventure, from start to finish, with as many details as possible. This way, you and the builders have clear expectations of what is to come. Be painfully realistic and factor in things like monthly expenses, maintenance costs, and more.

Decide What You Want Before You Break Ground

It is unlikely that a home builder will break ground on your project without a clear and defined outline of the house design. But, before you ever hire a custom home builder, it is important to plan out your style, must-have design elements, and anything else before you meet with your builder.

Do Your Research Before Hiring a Custom Home Builder

Create a list of custom home builders in your area and start doing your research on each. Check out their past projects, their process, look for references, reviews, and more. It is also a good idea to make a list of questions to ask the builders when you are doing your research so you can get a clear idea of who they are.

Make Sure Everything is in Writing

Before starting any project, both you and the custom home builders are going to want to create contracts that explicitly outline the project details, the budget outline, time frame expectations, and anything else of importance. This helps hold all parties accountable so if any problems arise, everyone has the original writing to reference.
