When you’re starting the process of building your dream home, the options can seem overwhelming.
Where do I build?
How big do I build?
What features do I add?
But possibly the biggest questions is – who do I hire to build my dream home?
Reef Builders – a leading design-build firm in Arizona - understands these questions and issues can be overwhelming, so we’ve put together the “ins and outs” to help you navigate the process:
What Questions Should I Ask?
Of course, you’ll want to come into the meeting with a clear vision of what you are looking for, and a part of that includes knowing what to ask and how to ask it. Don’t worry, the professionals will take it in stride and you will quickly understand who might be the right fit for your project – and who may not. Asking these questions will paint a clearer picture of the type of working relationships you could have with the design-build firm in Arizona. Here are a few of the top questions we get asked on a regular basis:
· How long have you been in business?
· How many homes have you built?
· Can you describe some of your favorite projects and why?
· What warranties are included with my build?
· What benefits do you see in working with your firm vs. the other design-build firms in the area?
· How long does the design-build process typically take?
· What energy-saving features do you typically include?
· How do you handle client feedback and changes during the process?
· How often can I access the home during the build?
· Can you provide references for previous clients you have worked with?
Expect Questions from the Firms Too!
The more you think through the requirements and desired results of your project prior to interviewing a design-build firm in Arizona, the more productive the meeting will be. Here are a few questions to ask yourself as you prepare for the meeting:
· What is my timing on this project? (It’s important to share if there is a drop-dead date or special occasion that you are looking to complete the project before.)
· Are there certain features or design elements that are important to me? (Feel free to bring photos to reference the “look and feel” you are desiring. Craftsman, farmhouse, modern, etc.)
· How is this new home going to meet my needs better than my current home?
· What is my budget?
