How to Choose a Custom Home Builder

For most of us, finding a custom home builder is part of one of the largest, and most expensive projects we will ever take on.  In Bryan, College Station, as well as the surrounding counties (Grimes County, Washington County, Robertson County, Leon County, Burleson County, Madison County and just about everywhere else in the area) it seems like a housing boom is on.  That means there are dozens of new builders in the marketplace.

So how do you choose a custom home builder that’s right for you?  Here are a few simple steps we suggest to get you started.

  1. Choose an experienced builder.  Ask your prospective builders how many custom homes they and have built in your area.
  2. Check references.  Ask your prospective builders to provide you with a list of references.
  3. Ask for pictures.  Ask builders to provide you with pictures of custom homes they have built that are similar in scope to what you’re looking for.
  4. Remember, with rural home building, it’s not just the home you’re building. Often, roads, driveways, septic systems and wells are all part of the custom homebuilding process.  Make sure your builder is ready to assist you with all these things.

These are just four things that can help you find a home builder that fits your needs.  Southwest Homes would love the opportunity to speak with your about your home building project.  We have one of the most experienced teams in the area and have been the premier custom homebuilder in the Brazos Valley for over 30 years.
