How to Choose a Custom Home Builder

learn how to choose the perfect home builder for your new property!

So, you have decided to venture into the endeavor of building your new family home. With such a big undertaking, you should make it your dream home. To do this, you must choose the best custom home builder to meet your needs. This process can be overwhelming, and if you start your plans with someone you trust, it can alleviate the stress tremendously. There are a few things to consider when choosing your custom home builder.

Research, Research, Research!

Search for popular custom builders based on your location. From there, you can view portfolios and floor plans. Perhaps there is a particular style you want your home built in. If that is the case, then choose a builder who specializes in that style. Even ask for references from friends and neighbors that have had their homes custom built. Thomas Builders has a number of qualified builders that want to get started on building your dream home today.


Begin to build your relationship with your custom home builder on an honest foot; transparency is critical when it comes to building a home. The best builders are transparent and will be ready and willing to answer any question you have. Do not be afraid to ask questions! Nothing is too big or too small when it comes to your new home. If your builder cannot answer these questions clearly from the beginning, choose someone new. Building a new custom home is a huge investment of your time and money, and you deserve the best when it comes to your new adventure.

Communication is Key

Along with asking as many questions as you want, you should make sure that you and your builder have compatible communication styles. Your builder should be someone you trust, someone that shares your vision and your style. If you do not connect with your builder early on, consider hiring another one. If your builder is not responsible and takes a long time to respond to you, you may experience a rough road ahead. Your builder should cater to your needs, not the other way around. Ask to see a potential builder’s portfolio and ask for a tour (or multiple) of houses that they have built.
