First off, let us quickly add that, although building a new home can seem like a stressful, time-consuming adventure, you are sure to get the most stress-free and enjoyable experience possible with a great builder like LifeStyle Homes.
That’s right, your builder wields the power to make or break your experience. Therefore, experts advise potential homebuilders to take the time and research several builders before deciding on one to complete their homebuilding project.
That said, here are some essential steps to get you prepared for the adventure ahead. If you can anticipate what is coming, you will have a much better experience!
Create a Plan
Building a home can be fun! It doesn’t have to be a soul-sucking activity. You can actually enjoy the experience of building a new home if you prepare adequately for it. Yes, creating a working plan has got to be the first and most important step in building a home in Utah or anywhere else. You need a clear picture of the construction process to answer any questions about the building process you may have. A good builder will help prepare you for these things so you understand the steps and the process.
At LifeStyle Homes, we will set you up with a Buildertrend account so you can follow your build right from your phone! You will have access to schedules, construction logs, photos, change orders, and be able to communicate directly with the project manager for your home.
Financing Your New Home
At Lifestyle Homes, we do financing a new home a little different. Rather than making you get your own construction loan, we finance EVERYTHING, until your house is completed. This means the only thing you have to do is get your long-term financing lined up. Yep, it’s that easy.
Choose Your Lot
Some of the potential homeowners we work with come prepared with their own lot. If you have a lot already, great! You can skip this step. However, if you are yet to choose a lot, then your next step should be locating one. But don’t panic, LifeStyle Homes has lots available in many different subdivisions and we can help you choose the best lot for you.
Pick Your Floorplan
Your builder won’t understand your personal style until you pick a design. As professional home builders with many years of experience under our belts, we have experience building many different floorplans. All you need to do is choose one and we can get to work! We advise our clients to take their time with this step. Changing the layout or design elements after we commence construction can be costly. Be sure of what you want. Envision living in the home – literally, and then pick one that suits your family.
