3 Tips for Custom Residential Construction in Denver

When a person's goal is to own a home with a private theater or fully stocked fitness center, they should call on FABER Inc. to make their dreams come true. While homeownership is the American dream, building a custom home can make the experience much better. Before a buyer makes any firm decisions about their future home, they should learn about the process of building a new home.

  1. Getting Financing in Order
    A custom home isn't always more costly than an existing or newly-built home because it can be sized to suit the buyer's budget. However, sourcing materials individually rather than buying in bulk can quickly raise the cost. The buyer should understand that his/her decisions on land buying, design and construction quality can all affect the price of the home. Financing is typically achieved with construction lending, which can be difficult to find. If the buyer has to purchase land, they'll need a loan for it, which comes with a separate settlement fee. Custom home building is considered a high risk, and the buyer needs good credit and a down payment of about 25% to qualify for a loan.

  2. Interviewing Builders and Architects
    If the buyer knows what type of home they want, they can begin searching for local design firms. Some buyers opt to find builders who can recommend architects, while others hire the architect first. Alternatively, a design/build firm like FABER Inc. can offer both services. Regardless of the route a buyer takes, they should check references, hold interviews and evaluate examples of the builder or architect's past work before making a decision.

  3. Think About the Neighborhood
    Most who pay for a custom home believe they'll never sell their homes, but plans often change. It is wise to think of resale value when building a custom home; in particular, the buyer should match the size and price of the home to others in the same area so their home isn't considered overpriced or oversized for the neighborhood.

Planning from the foundation to the shingles can save a buyer money and time during the process of building your new custom home. Decisions should be made before construction starts, to reduce the likelihood of cost overruns and delays. With planning and the hiring of a reliable contractor, a buyer can make the custom homebuilding experience a dream come true. Contact FABER Inc today to let us help.
