Be Picky, Know What to Look for When Choosing Your Homebuilder
Here at Gracepoint Homes, we know choosing your builder is a very important decision. The wrong decision can quickly change the exhilaration of owning a new home. Remember that you are making a long-term investment.
We invite you to compare homebuilders. In fact, we have compiled this list to help you make a decision that will lead to confidence and satisfaction.
You will not only be living in your home. You will also be living in a community that becomes a part of the pleasure of home ownership. Better builders are very selective where they build. Gracepoint Homes is proud to be the exclusive builder in our communities or designated sections of master-planned communities. We have done our own homework and you should, too.
Visit the communities you are considering on a pretty day in the early evening or midday on the weekend. Are people outside visiting or working on the yard? Stop in, introduce yourself and initiate a conversation about your consideration of moving there. If you talk to enough people, you will know if this is the type of community you would like to join.
If the neighbors have lived there six months or more, they can answer many of your questions about the builder.
What energy-efficient features are included? Sometimes builders will be very competitive in pricing and you will lose if you choose only by home price if your energy bills are hundreds more each month. Over time, the investment in energy efficiency grows rapidly…choosing the cheaper home price pales in comparison.
Pay close attention to the detailed finishes in cabinetry and trim. Look for stain and paint finish details.
The culture is something a bit less tangible than construction details, but company culture is something you want to recognize before you work with a builder. Assess the attitude of each person you meet that work for the builder. We take pride in the Christian culture of our Gracepoint Home team. We are committed to treating each person who walks through our doors with the utmost courtesy, respect and service that we can offer.
