1. Is the lot cost included? Some home builders will include the lot with the cost of the home, but others will not. Make sure you know whether the lot is included in the home’s total cost, so you do not end up surprised when it comes time to finalize the details of your loan.
2. How long will the building process take? Most home builders can only give you an estimate of how long a home will take to construct. Factors that impact any construction timeline include material availability, the size of the home, and the finishes.
3. What warranties come with the house? Most home builders will include a short-term warranty with the house, as well as a longer-term structural warranty. Make sure you know what to expect from the start, so you can protect your best interests.
4. What do the standard finishes look like? Home builders often provide building packages with standard finishes you can upgrade based on your preferences. Go through a model unit with a member of the building team and ask which finishes are standard and which ones are upgrades.
