If you’re like many people who pursue the building of a new custom home, it could be that you have had a dream of doing so for quite some time. But in order for your perfect home to become a reality, it is important to avoid mistakes that are commonly made by new home builders. Just some of these can include the following:
- Not Accurately Estimating the Cost – Building a new home can be expensive – and this is particularly the case if you intend to include a lot of amenities, such as a pool, custom cabinets, top-of-the-line appliances, and professional landscaping. While any or all of these can be nice, it is essential to build the added cost into your budget.
- Not Planning for the Future – Making sure that all of your current needs will be met in your new home is essential. But it is also important that you plan for both today and tomorrow’s requirements. For example, if you will become an “empty nester” in the future, it can make sense to build such that you can close off unused bedrooms down the road.
- Not Anticipating Construction Delays – Regardless of how much planning you have in place, you can still run into various delays in construction. There can be any number of reasons for this – such as bad weather, a hold up with materials, and / or a slow down with the necessary permitting – most of which are out of your control. With that in mind, be sure that you anticipate delays, and time your move-in date accordingly.
