Buying a new home is an exciting time for all homeowners but making the choice to build a new custom home designed to your specifications makes this time even more exciting. Building a custom home allows you to choose the lot, the design, and not have to worry about problems that an older house could hold — you can build your dream home, and you have a right to not settle for anything less than that! 

Unfortunately, it is possible to get overwhelmed by the big decisions and end up settling for a home that is outdated and needs money and time to make it your own. For this reason, it is vital to have local custom home builders you can trust to take on each step professionally, efficiently, and creatively. At Rotelle Studio(e), we are proud to provide soon-to-be homeowners with exceptional custom homes throughout Montgomery County and Bucks County, PA. Still, we understand the importance of due diligence when considering taking such a big step. 

In this article, we will provide you with a few considerations you should make when deciding on the right custom home builder.

  • Design & Build

As we mentioned previously, it is easy to get bogged down in all of the different steps of building a custom home. If you want to eliminate a step, then take out the outside architect and go with an experienced design-build company that can design the home and make it a reality. 

  • Positive Online Reviews & Testimonials

When you are in the market for any significant investment like a custom home, it is essential to do your research. Make sure to scroll through the reviews of the builders you are considering to see what homebuyers are saying about them. Only you can make the call, but usually, too many negative reviews or too little reviews and testimonials available are red flags. Also, keep in mind some reviews may be unreliable or from a personal standpoint and do not accurately represent the work of the builder. Ask the builder about any reviews that seem untrustworthy or overly negative.

  • Impressive Portfolio

There is no proof better than actual proof! Visit the home builder’s website and look through their online portfolio if available. If you like what you see and no stock photos are clogging up the site, call the builders and request a meeting in which you can go over their portfolio again and discuss what they can do for you.

Look for the Intangible Qualities 

At Rotelle, we want you to have the best custom home buying experience possible. It all starts with what the builder can do for you and ends with how they do it. When you are in the consultation, you have already decided that you like what the builder does, so the next things you should consider are the intangible, in-person qualities. Watch the video below for a few such home builder qualities: 

It is your home, after all, so do not hire a home builder that does not check off all the boxes. With the Rotelle home builders in Montgomery County, PA, you are sure to be impressed with the work we do and enjoy working with our designers and builders. For more information, call us today!
