When you are looking to have a new house built you will probably check out a couple of builders along with the display homes they have to show customers. Display homes will have all of the bells and whistles that builders can offer, from high end fixtures to the latest appliances. Display homes are set up to lure you into buying an expensive home but they don’t necessarily reflect quality construction. Don’t get sold on the display home while looking at buying into a new development.
Display homes are set up to spend more money than you have budgeted for. They have every amenity possible and they are staged to look as appealing as possible. While a builder may advertise homes starting at one price but when you factor in everything that is included in the model home the price will nearly double. If you have been pre-approved for financing then you may find the home of your dreams is well out of your budget. The building of a display home is factored into a large project but all of the bells and whistles cost the builder a fraction of what they are going to cost you.
When there is a display home chances are the builder is throwing up dozens of houses that are identical and all of them are built as quickly as possible to maximise the profit in the project. Sometimes corners get cut in the name of profits and you end up with problems with your home later down the road. However if you choose to go with a local custom home builder then there is a better chance of having a quality project from a builder who pays attention to detail. More often than not you not only get a better home but you get a better price too.
When it comes to building your new home it should be an exciting time for you, but it all starts with the right builder. Finding the right builder is always one of the more challenging parts. Don’t be fooled by big building companies with model homes on display, it doesn’t equate to building quality homes. Small local builders stake their reputation on every house that they put together it is in their best interest to do a good job. Using a local builder helps to keep valuable jobs and money in your community
