Picking a Builder

Picking a qualified builder that has a good reputation, experience, and financial security is crucial.   I know many of the builders in the area and will be able to guide you to a builder that will match your building needs.  

Call or Text me Today (941)380-9255   Let me help you find your new home.

 

 

Here are a few questions that we will ask the builder when we set up an appointment to view their homes and plans.

 

  • Is the builder or group licensed and insured in Florida.

  • Do they require all their Sub Contractors to have the appropriate workmen’s compensation and liability insurance before being on the jobsite

  • How long has the builder been in business

  • How many other homes or communities have they built- Can you get references

  • What type of warranty do they offer

  • Do they offer financing

  • What is included in the price – standard features?

  • What features are extra

  • How long is the building process

  • Will I receive updates, pictures during the process

  • Do I receive a release from each sub-contractor- showing payment has been made

  • Do you only build the homes you have on the plans or can I make changes? Any custom homes?
