Deciding to build a new home with a professional homebuilding contractor has many benefits. You can select the location you want, the perfect floorplan for you and an affordable budget.
But before you break ground, there are some rules and regulations you must follow for the process to run smoothly.
After setting a budget, the first step is to find the location for building your dream home. As nice as it would be to simply find any empty space you’d like and start building, it’s not that simple.
You must first determine a general area that you’re interested in. For instance are you looking to move to Newark, New Jersey or Manhattan, NY? It might be a good idea to select a few areas nearby just in case.
The next step in the homebuilding process is to find out if the area you want has land available. You will need to visit the local planning and zoning department. They will have a list of zoning areas that are available for purchase.
Certain areas are designated for residential building while others are for commercial property, public areas, schools and parks. You will need to make sure that the area you’ve chosen has residential lots.
Select a company that works in your area, has extensive experience in completing homes and provides proof they’re properly licensed, bonded and insured.
Determining costs will depend on several different variables, including:
You will receive a breakdown and estimate once you’ve discussed your plans with your chosen homebuilding contractor.
When you’ve gotten all of your ducks in a row, you are ready to put the job of building your dream home in the hands of your homebuilding contractor. The homebuilder will make sure you’re involved in every step of the process, ensure that the build goes according to schedule and ultimately stays within budget.
All that’s left is to sit back and imagine how beautiful your new home will be.
