When approaching a home builder, there are several ways to approach them. First, try to learn as much as you can about their company and products. Learn how they operate, what they do, and why they would be interested in working with you. Then, plan ahead and remember that you are building relationships with them – not selling them a house. If you’re planning to approach a home builder directly, send a marketing message or useful item to their mailing address.
Next, find a list of references. Ask the builder to provide you with at least three references. Check each reference’s references to see what they have to say about their work and how responsive they were. If possible, meet with some of their previous customers. You can also ask them questions about their experience, work quality, communication methods, and budgets. Make sure to ask to tour the homes before making your final decision.
Once you have a list of potential home builders, you’ll need to narrow it down to the few that fit your criteria. Then, schedule a meeting with the candidates you’ve chosen. The home builder and you will be a partnership for the next year. If you are planning to build your own home, choose someone you trust and who has the qualifications to provide you with the house you want. This will help you avoid disappointment later.
