Building a New Home: What to Expect From the Process

Building a personalized home is a rewarding experience, but the process can be lengthy and challenging to manage without the right resources. The best way to protect against the stresses of home building is to learn what to expect.

Get Ready to Formulate a Plan 

The first and most important step in home building is selecting which community location, home site and plans works best for you. These serve as the foundation for the entire construction process.  Working with a production builder, like Robertson Homes, will save you lots of time and money not having to start from scratch on items like hiring an architect or having to go through municipal permitting on your own. 

Be Prepared for the Commitment

The prospect of a new home creates excitement, but many are unaware of exactly how long it takes to build a home from start to finish. The timeline depends on specifications and plans, but the building construction alone can take six to nine months, and that doesn't initial meetings and time to make design selections. Expect to be in it for the long haul. It will be worth it!

Expect Constant Communication

There are so many people and lots of commotion involved in the building process. Even in the most meticulously planned builds, buyers should maintain frequent communication with the builder and the crews. Always be ready to answer questions, even if plans have already been discussed, and don't be afraid to reiterate preferences.

Experienced Professionals Make All the Difference

Building a home is expensive, but it's not worth cutting corners on the professionals hired to complete the job. Despite the potential struggles involved in new home construction, the process can be enjoyed and can proceed quite smoothly when an experienced, reputable builder is trusted with the job.
