What To Look For In Your Kearney, MO Homebuilder
If you do opt to go the new build route, one of the most important decisions you’ll have to answer is “Who will build your dream home?” As you would probably expect, choosing the wrong builder could easily be the difference between an exciting experience and one that goes three months past the expected timeline! In addition, if you’ve never built a home from the ground up, you might not know which questions would help you decipher a “quality builder” from a “below-average builder.” Luckily, in a growing city like Kearney, MO, you have plenty of options to consider. Having said that, here are a few must-have qualities that all reliable builders will answer confidently:
– Experience and Licensed – How long has the company been in business? While strong marketing material is critical for growing a business, you can let it make your decision for you. One of the biggest differences you’ll recognize between an experienced and an inexperienced builder is their ability to have everything run like a well-oiled machine! Experienced builders have created systems and processes that are easy to replicate, and more importantly, result in quality products every single time.
– Timeline – One of the best qualities a reliable builder possesses is the ability to create AND stick to a timeline. With homebuilding being a process that spans more than a few months, this can certainly be a challenge. However, if you’ve built hundreds of homes, it can easily be a walk in the park as well!
– Warranty – With the entire homebuilding process being such an exciting time, you likely can’t wait to sign those closing papers and move in! However, one thing that you’ll want finalized in the early stages is the warranty policy. While you don’t expect anything to be wrong with a new home, it’s better to be safe than sorry!
