7 Pitfalls to avoid in Building your Dream Home

3505 Kendall Ln_01

When you start looking, it can easily become overwhelming! Finding land, finding a quality builder, getting a loan, oh my! And we have only starting thinking about it!

There is no doubt that a quality custom home is a great reward for all that work though!

Dream Foyer

Here are 7 things to consider as you move forward:

  1. What municipality is the land I want to buy located?  Every township has different requirements when a home is built. Go to the township office and have a detailed conversation!

2. Will I connect to public utilities, or drill a well and have a septic system installed? The costs for these vary hugely! Well and Septic will be $10-$30,000. Public utilities are by no means free- sewer and water connection fees can top $7,000+.

3. Is the home I want to build economically feasible? The more elaborate the facade and layout, the higher the price! Consult a builder for advice on making a home less expensive to build.

4. What is the reputation of the builders I am considering? As a knowledgeable Realtor we can advice you on the reputation and building quality of area builders.

5. How will a finance this home? If you are not paying cash for everything, a construction loan will be required. A good local bank or credit union is the best place to go for Construction Loans.

6. What is my time frame? A custom home will take 8 months on average to build, or longer.

7. What will be resale value be? Obviously, you will want to live in your special home for many, many years to come. But when its time to resell, will you make money on your investment? I can advice you on what features will increase your home value from the beginning.

As experts in Real Estate and experienced in New Construction, Naomi Brown and the Tom Pendergast Team has the answers to get you just what you want.

Here is some answers:

Is financing a new home the same?   -New home financing can be the same, or very different than a re-sale home. This depends on the builder. Making sure your financing fits your home is an critical step that your Realtor can advise on.

What if you are worried about paying too much?  – New Homes still have to pass an Appraisal if you are getting a loan. This protects your values and keeps you from paying too much.

But what if you are not sure how the process works? –  Many builder let you pick a plan, choose all your inside features and colors to make it your own. Some have ‘Spec’ homes, ready built and waiting for you to move right in. When buying from a floorplan, it usually takes 5-6 months until you move in.
