Do you know how to choose a builder before you start the design process?
Hi I’m Chris Eades, Director and Builder of Capri Building Group.
What can you do to learn how to choose a builder even before you start the design process? You can start your initial research online.
Start by checking out builder’s websites and facebook pages. Look at their reviews, client testimonials along with the information they are providing and the organisations they belong to. Create a short list of no more than 3 custom home builders who are experts in building the type of home that YOU are looking to build.
Make contact with the builders via their website contact form and by calling the office number. If it’s outside business hours, just leave a message with your details.
For each of these enquiries, leave a different name, that way you can check that the builder will respond in a timely manner.
Builders who have poor communication skills with their prospective clients will tend to also have poor communication with their suppliers, subcontractors and their clients throughout the build process which tends to lead to delays on site.
By now you are looking for reasons to disqualify a builder from your shortlist if they don’t get back to you in a reasonable time frame either by email or by phone.
From your list of builders that do respond, invest 15-20 minutes into an initial phone conversation. Expect a professional builder to be asking you a lot more questions than you ask them at this stage, so they can get a better understanding of your desired end result. Then if you feel comfortable the next stage will be to progress to an onsite meeting.
