5 Things you need to know when building a new home

 

 

1. Know your numbers 

Before you start building your new home, run some numbers to determine whether you can afford to build the home you want. Most house plans offer a cost to build tool (usually for a nominal fee) to give you an accurate estimate of construction costs based on where you're building. The numbers include the costs of construction, tax benefits, funds for the down payment and slush account, and other related calculations. 

Once you've determined you can afford to build the house you want — purchase your house plan and head to the bank to arrange for financing. Keep in mind that home construction lending is a little different than regular mortgage financing. First you'll need a home construction line of credit that will be used to pay subcontractors and suppliers who perform work and provide supplies. Once your house is constructed, you will need a residential mortgage to pay off the construction line. 

5 Things You Need to Know When Building a New Home

Building your new home is an exciting and at times overwhelming experience, but for your builder it is very routine, which is why you need to be an active participant in all aspects of the home building process to ensure you end up with "YOUR" dream home. 

Building your new home cannot be a passive exercise, because there are so many decisions that "must be" made by you. If you are unable or unwilling to make these decisions, you will force your builder to make them and run the risk that your new home won't turn out the way you envisioned it or cost what you thought. Check back here tomorrow for the 5 things you must know and take into consideration when building your new home..
