Do I Need to Have a Design in Mind Prior to Finding a Builder?

When you first decide to build a home, one of the first things to do is decide where you want to build and the design of your home. Some might be excited and go right to Pinterest  or Houzz , while others feel a bit anxious about the potential process and how overwhelming the upcoming decisions can be. There are some soon-to-be homebuyers who have an exact idea of what they want in their custom home; while others know how many bedrooms, bathrooms and what their budget is, but the rest is up in the air. Many clients are at both ends of the spectrum. But before any of that, who do you call in order to make this a reality? An Architect? A Builder? A realtor?

While all three would be a good candidate, most custom home builders have connections with professionals who can create your dream home on paper. Whether it’s 1600 square feet or 5000+ square feet, there are multiple ways to present your ideas without a design to your potential builder.  Asking questions is one of the best ways to come up with your design. Builders can show you different locations, other homes they’ve designed/built and even what they are working on currently. Building a home can be stressful, so having your builder be there during every step will help alleviate the stress.
