Questions to Ask Your New Home Builder

You decided to build a home. Congrats! This is very exciting, but can also be overwhelming and scary. The home building process can be long and frustrating if you don't take the time to find the right builder for you. When looking for a home builder, you'll want to find someone trustworthy, compassionate, and—most importantly—experienced. Here's a list of the top questions to ask your home builder to make sure they are a right fit for you.

About the Builder

  1. How many years have you been in business, and how many homes have you built?
  2. What sort of new home warranty do you offer?
  3. How does your company address material shortages or discontinued items?
  4. How do you hire your contractors and labor?
  5. Can I view a current project you’re working on? (Homes in the works are a great way to check for workmanship and material quality.)
  6. Do you build model homes that I can tour? If not, can you help me make an appointment to tour a home you built for another customer?
  7. Can you provide me with references or testimonials from previous home buyers?

About the Process

  1. Do you only build from existing floorplans, or can I provide my own set of plans?
  2. What features are standard in the homes you build? What are the upgrades?
  3. When and how can I make changes or upgrades throughout the building process?
  4. What are the energy-saving features of the homes you build?
  5. What price changes should be expected during the build time?
  6. Who will be overseeing the construction of my home? Who can I reach out to during construction with questions?
  7. What is your process for inspections throughout construction, final walk-through, and addressing any matters that need to be corrected or finalized?
  8. How long does it take to build a home with your company?
  9. How long will it take to build my home?
  10. How and when will the final cost of my home be determined?
