What’s the most important step in building a new house from the ground up? Many people would say it’s choosing the right home builder.
Constructing a new house is a huge and multifaceted undertaking, so it’s important to find custom home builders you can trust to bring your vision to life, as well as keep the process under control from start to finish. Although a construction job is never without surprises and challenges, a home builder who’s a good fit for your specific project will make these far easier to handle.
What do new home builders do?
For residential home builders who also act as developers, the job starts well before the first nail is driven. They perform local market research to determine whether the prospective homesites make sense in the market, as well as survey the land on which the house will be built to make sure it is suitable for construction. Custom builders also obtain the necessary permits.
A good custom home builder has skills that go far beyond construction — he or she must supervise subcontractors and artisans; keep tabs on local zoning regulations, building codes and other legalities; inspect work for problems along the way; and perform dozens of other roles that are essential in building a quality house.

Spec Home Builders
A spec home is a brand new property that is completed, or nearly completed, before it is sold. The home’s layout and flooring and its appliances and features are chosen by the home builder, not the buyer. This makes for a much simpler and cheaper planning and building process, but, if you go for this option, it also means you will own a house that is almost identical to numerous others.
READY TO GO
Custom Home Builders
A new build is a home that is built from scratch, based on architectural drawings that take into account the buyer’s input. New builds are more customisable than spec homes, but involve a longer planning and building process, meaning buyers have to wait longer to move into their new home.
