How to Choose the Right Builder for Your Dream Home

Building a new home is one of the biggest financial investments you will ever make. But with hundreds of builders in your local region alone, it can be confusing knowing which builder to choose.

The right builder will give you the exact home you want – on time and on budget. But the wrong builder could leave you with a costly disaster you’ll regret for years.

In this article, you will discover critical tips to choosing the right builder, starting with…

A comparison of custom home builders and volume builders

Have you ever dealt with a company that made you feel more like a number than a valued client? Or like you’re suddenly no longer important once you sign on the dotted line?

That’s a common complaint we hear from people who choose a volume builder. Even though they are handing over hundreds of thousands of dollars, they feel forgotten, unimportant, and even ignored. Some complain their builder won’t even take or return their calls.

Naturally, not all volume builders treat their customers like this. But when trying to build tens and sometimes hundreds of houses at once, it’s no wonder personal attention often suffers.

On the other hand, a skilled custom builder remains focused on a small number of homes at once, and is not distracted trying to juggle hundreds of projects…Professional custom home builders

That means you get the personal attention you deserve. And after all, a lot of money is at stake. You want to know your builder is focused on delivering your home – on time and on budget.

Not only do quality custom builders maintain good communication with you, they pay attention to the details. By nature, they focus on customising the little things that turn a house into the home you’ve always wanted…

… things like the extra ceiling height that give your home a spacious, relaxed feel…

… the position of windows to maximise light and air flow…

… internal walls and partitions to connect each room giving a seamless flow…

… and the little touches that make your home unique – yours – matched to your lifestyle and personality.

Volume builders are bound by standardised plans that maximise profits and building capacity. They produce very similar houses like a factory assembly line churns out cloned products.

Drive through any new housing estate and you will get a sense of this cookie-cutter approach. And when you look at a volume home more closely, you’ll soon see where corners have been cut and compromises made in the name of efficiency.   

If you’re looking for the cheapest possible price, a cloned design with no customisation or special features, and don’t mind having no interaction with your builder during the building process, a volume builder may be right for you.

… a skilled tradesperson who takes pride in the small details…

… and someone who follows a schedule, keeps you up to date on the progress, and is always available to answer questions…

… you should find a professional custom home builder.

Volume builders have their place in the market. But when you can get the exact home you want, delivered on time and on budget, complete with those special features that turn a house into your home, all for around the same price, it’s worth at least talking with a professional custom home builder.
