If you decide to build a home rather than purchase an existing one, start by identifying what type of architectural styles appeal to you. Ask friends for referrals. Verify the builder’s state license status if applicable, and check to see if they are certified by the National Association of Home Builders.
Even if you are building, a real estate agent can be a powerful advocate to help you identify market readiness, understand legal jargon, determine pros and cons of each building decision, and negotiate upgrades, move-in dates, and other terms with the builder. Something to keep in mind: most builders require a deposit when a purchase agreement is signed, and if you back out early, you may owe them money. Make sure you understand the “ins and outs” of each contract you sign!
