Building a new home begins long before the foundation is poured. In fact, construction is exciting when the homeowner has a good plan and an honest builder. To avoid costly mistakes during the construction process, start with these five important steps. As you move from dream house to real house, be sure to ask questions and share your progress with people who have gone through the process.
1. Plan Your Budget
Begin now to think about how much you can afford to spend and how much building your new home is likely to cost. Chances are you will need a construction loan and a mortgage. It’s not too early to find out what size loan you qualify for. Also, knowing the approximate costs will help you modify your building plans to meet your budget. What are some ideas that could save you money?
Money is one of the biggest obstacles and may be the most complex piece to the puzzle of home ownership. Why do prices always go up but never go down? If the price of gasoline goes down during construction, why can’t that cost savings be passed on to the owner? Beware of banks who want to lend you more money than you can afford—that was one of the reasons behind the 2008 financial crisis. The reasons for “unexpected costs” can make no sense—isn’t that why we make plans and hire professionals? Get a second opinion from a third party—a professional who will not do the project—and ask, How much will it cost?
