Building a new home: how to get started

May 21, 2019

After building nearly 10,000 homes for folks just like you, we know that it can be difficult and overwhelming just to get started.

And while it may seem a bit challenging, it isn’t as difficult as it might seem. There are huge benefits to building a home that can be customized to both your needs and wants while featuring your own style and design – something you often can’t find with an existing home.

It’s as simple as considering these four questions to start your home-building process:

  • Where do you want – or need – to build?
  • What do you need in a home?
  • What do you want in a home?
  • What is your budget?

The answers to these questions will start the process. You’ll know where to start looking for property, how to narrow down your builder choices based on their products, reputation and pricing, and you can begin crafting your must-haves and wish lists.

If you find yourself unsure on a budget, you can contact a lender to get “pre-approved” so you know how much you can spend.

Get the process started and your mind rolling on the possibilities. Once you have honed in on a building site and narrowed down your builders list, it is time to schedule an appointment.

Should you choose TK Constructors as your new home builder, we recommend that if you put an offer on property prior to meeting with us, you make closing contingent on a lot evaluation by your builder and satisfactory septic approval (if a septic is required).

Our production team would be happy to go take a look at your lot (with no obligation from you) to see if there will be any issues building on that property. Once you sit down with our sales team, they will take you through your needs, wants and options. You can see what your exterior and interior options are and your salesperson will “line item” out everything so the process is completely transparent.

Finally, you will make final property and house decisions and start the financing process.

You are now on the verge of starting your new home! That is as simple as it can – and should – be.

Before you know it, you’ll be moving into a new home that perfectly fits your needs, with the curb appeal you want and the finishes that fit your style and design.
