If you’re in the market for a custom home, odds are you know how important it is to find a reputable builder you can trust. But what is it that makes a builder good? What qualifications should clients be looking for? Well, we’re glad you asked. There are several different things to look out for when searching for your ideal home builder…
The first, and most important aspect is trust. If you don’t trust that a builder can bring your dream home to life, what other reason is there to hire them? A good builder should instill confidence and excitement in their clients! Just like when looking to hire a lawyer or choosing a doctor, a reputable builder should be plenty knowledgeable about the concept at hand.
Secondly, you want to find a builder that will listen to your needs. The point of a custom home is to create a house that is perfectly fitted to your lifestyle, and design style. If you ever sense that a custom builder is trying to cut corners, or talk you out of something without good reason, steer clear. If you’re going to spend the time and money to build a custom home, it should be exactly how you want it!
Here at Matt Powers Custom Homes, we sit down with our clients and get to know them personally, as well as professionally. By doing this, we’re able to gain a better insight about their family, needs and what they’re wanting out of a home. We ask why they’re wanting to build custom, and strive to help them overcome the hurdles they encountered in their previous housing experiences.
Next, look for a builder that treats each and every project with the utmost importance— as if it were their own home! Trust us, we know what it is like to build a custom home! We aim to take away the nerves and anxiety that may come along with the custom home process. From your first consultation, to the moment you walk into your brand new home, you’ll be in communication with us on the progress of your home, as well as updates on timelines.
We’ll always be honest with you on where your home’s progress is at, so you never feel out of the loop. Additionally, we’re there to answer any questions or concerns you may have. Having second thoughts on your choice of backsplash? Let us know, and we’ll always do our best to sort out a solution for any kind of problem.
One last qualification we suggest looking for— experience! Our owner, Matt Powers has over 20 years of professional home building experience.
