Tips for Choosing a Clayton Home Builder

The single most important step in having the new home of your dreams is choosing the right home builder. Home buyers who’ve been through the new construction experience in Clayton will tell you that this one decision can have an impact that lasts a lifetime (or at least as long as you’re in the home).

That’s why finding a reputable builder with the construction experience, design creativity, and familiarity with the ins-and-outs of the home building market in Clayton is the key to your new home success.

It’s vital to find a company that you can trust, one that keeps the project centered on you, the homebuyer, by keeping you informed and up-to-date throughout the process. Our goal here at New Homes & Ideas is to provide you with the latest information on home builders working in Clayton so you can find the perfect partner for you.

Questions to Ask Prospective Home Builders

It’s natural to get caught up in the excitement of choosing kitchen countertops and paint colors and deciding if you want your master bedroom upstairs or down. But before you jump in head first, it’s important to understand that there’s much more to building or buying a brand new home.

And that’s where a quality builder really shines. The best do all of the prep-work for you.

Before the first slab of concrete is poured, an experienced home builder will have done thorough research on the land itself. Are the conditions suitable for building a home with a basement? Where will the neighborhood retention pond go? Will these homesites be able to withstand the elements such as flooding and storms? Is the neighborhood in a desirable location that allows homebuyers to gain or retain value if they sell the home years later?

Aside from being skilled in the nuts and bolts of home construction, a first-rate builder will also be skilled in other areas, including the management of local subcontractors, maintaining Clayton zoning regulations and business codes, inspecting the process every step of the way, and staying on task. To help you get a feel for any homebuilder(s) that you’re considering, ask these questions before committing to anything:

  • How long have you been in the home building business?
  • Which Clayton communities are you active in?
  • How many new homes have you built and sold in Clayton NC?
  • Can you provide me with references?
  • Can you give me the addresses of some homes you’ve built in the Clayton area?
  • What other training and affiliations do you have?
  • What do your services include?
  • What is your policy for change orders?
  • What will I need to provide?
