How to find the best home builder for your specific requirements.
So there you are, you’ve been approved by the bank to build your dream home and have the blueprints all ready. Now the only thing left to do is find the right home builder.
My wife and I went through this exact same scenario, we were looking for a custom home builder in Edmond OK, and discovered that finding the right builder was a pretty big undertaking.
We started with a recommendation of a builder that did custom homes in Oklahoma and also some parts of Texas. My wife decided to call on this particular builder and ask a series of questions to see if they were the right builder for us.
The first set of questions we asked the superintendent, involved things like, how long does it take to build our custom home? How do you handle any kind of additions to the blueprint? How many changes to we get before deciding on the exact layout? Will the builder work with our set of blueprints, or do we need to hire their personal architect?
What we found after asking these types of questions, was that the answers became a little too generic. We thought that they were just responding to us in am manner that was telling us that everything will be ok, just come into the office and we’ll get started.
This kind of attitude left us feeling a bit uneasy, as they seemed like just another used car salesman trying to pitch us.
So we kept on calling around and asked the same questions that we would ask just to start the dialog. What we discovered, was that the customer service from many of these custom home builders was very poor.
Yeah sure, they might be great at building homes, but if your first impression of the company leaves you with this feeling of discontent, then you don’t feel comfortable having them build your dream home.
With so many factors on the line to creating the home of our dreams, we finally discovered a fantastic Edmond builders that had fantastic customer support. Their name was The Roberts Group.
From the very first contact we made with this company, we felt like they knew exactly what we wanted in a home. The took us trough the process and answered all our questions in a courteous manner that made us feel at ease.
These guys had their own architect that was able to make modifications to our own blueprint and they were awesome.
For us, the main factor that made us choose a custom home builder was definitely the customer service and attention to our needs that made us pick them over all the others.
