If you’ve ever tried searching for a home builder you would have most likely been swamped with hundreds of company names, many of which you’ve never heard of before. Having such an extensive list of home builders in Telluride to choose from means the job of finding the right one may be a long, arduous task.
Before you throw the idea into the “too hard basket” and decide it’s just easier to buy an established property, have a quick read through these tips to find the right builder for you.
Tip #1: The very first thing you need to do, even before you start searching online for home builders, is to determine:
a.) How much can you afford to spend on a new house? You should get pre-approval for finance before making any decisions on house designs so you don’t over-commit.
b.) What location do you want to live in OR where is your land located? Many builders only build within metro areas, or they charge more to complete a build in regional areas. The location of your land also has an impact on how much money you will need to set aside for site works, for example- close proximity to the coast or to fire-risk zones will automatically add costs on top of your build price.
c.) Single or double storey? Some builders have the ability to be more competitive on price when building double storey homes, and others are more competitive for single storey homes.
Tip #2: If you have friends or colleagues that have recently built a home, ask them if they would recommend their builder and why or why not. You can also search online for reviews, however there is no real way to know if the reviews are true and this is why it is always good to seek feedback from people you know.
