4 Things To Consider When Buying a Custom Home

The prospect of building your dream home in the Mile High City is exciting, yet daunting. After all, there are so many things to do and building companies to vet along the way. If you’re in need of a little direction to kick off your new journey, here are some things to consider when buying a custom home.


Make A List Of The Basics

Where do you even begin when it comes to a custom home? Start with the basics and the non-negotiables. Take inventory to get clear on the must-haves you need in your new home. From stainless steel appliances and eco-friendly flooring to VOC-free paint, get the basics for each room down first.


Get Approved For Your Construction Loan

Financing a new custom home is different than buying an existing home. For a custom home, you’ll need to be approved for a construction loan, whereas buying a traditional home, you get a home loan.

Approval is key, as it determines the budget for your new custom home.


Have A Firm Time Frame

If this is your first custom home build, navigating construction may be overwhelming and complex. At Forest St Builders, we have a streamlined approach to not only include you in the process, but to complete your home in the projected time frame.

If you have a specific window you need us to work within, always check during the design process to get confirmation that it can be done.


It’s Demanding, But It’s Also Gratifying

Building a home is a never-ending tug-of-war between wishes, requirements, and compromises, rather than just picking an existing property.

When you're arguing the benefits of fixture finishes or floor patterns, it's tempting to let stress get the best of you. Know that there will be roadblocks along the way, but in the end, it will all be worth it.

Helping people build the home of their dreams is something that Forest St Builders provides. For a client-centered approach that considers all the unique details, connect with us today!
