How the Custom Home build process works:

Step 1: Selecting A Builder

Building a custom home can be overwhelming if you’re not sure of what to expect. Our agents will help you determine the best fit for your family’s needs, and help you decipher the builder’s contracts.  We always recommend an attorney review the contracts, as our agents are not allowed to give legal advice or change conditions of a contract.  Some builders will have stock plans to choose from, and others will allow you to create your own blue prints.  If you need help designing your home, your agent will help you relay this information to the builder as well.

Step 2: Land Purchase

Our agents will communicate with the builder to ensure the land that is purchased, if needed, will accommodate the floor plans you’ve selected. Some builders will have lots available to purchase with the new build, and others will build on the property you select.  We will also help coordinate financing, if needed.

Step 3: Making Selections

Deciding on what tile to choose, colors of counter tops, paint, lighting, and all the other details can be exhausting! Your agent can be an extra set of eyes for you, to help solidify your design choices.

Step 4: Construction

Your agent will be available to walk through the build with you in the construction phases to help look for any items that need adjustment prior to completion.  Usually, the homeowner is invited to walk the build at different phases of construction to ensure that all of the details of your design are accurate.

 Step 5: Welcome Home

At this stage, your builder should be making all final adjustments before your last walk through.  We’ll make sure they stick to the timeline promised so you’ll be able to make arrangements to move!

Dillingham & Toone is here to help eliminate some of the stress of building a custom home.  We are knowledgeable in the custom build process,  and will communicate with the builder on your behalf.
