Choosing the RIGHT home builder in South Florida may seem like a difficult task.

Consequences that can affect your curb appeal, home value, final sale price, and state of mind. You will want to focus on some key points that can help in the process of buying a new home in South Florida before jumping into the housing market unaware. Let’s take a look:

Personality is everything


Setting out to build your dream home can be a process that spans many months. You want to find qualities in a builder that match your own. You are forming an intimate relationship and want to feel comfortable that you understand your builder, and most importantly, they understand you. They should be someone who can honestly share your vision with, to help guide you along this path, to avoid the blind spots and pitfalls while also being attentive to your needs.

  • Style to suit you
    If you are looking for a customized house, how far do you customize? How far can you go? With new home construction, you will find two different kinds of new home builders; Production and custom home building. Many production builders will offer ready-made floor plans from their inventory to help maintain cost efficiency and shorten the delivery timetable for new home construction. These plans may offer some customizations in areas that might fit what you have in mind. If not, then you should be in the market for a new home custom home builder.

This can (and usually does) increase cost and have a later delivery dates due to the specific nature of your customization.
