If you’re in the market for a new luxury home, there are plenty of options from new construction to existing homes. But have you considered building your new home?
Building a new home is a great way to get your dream home. Your dream home is where you are going to relax and enjoy life after a hectic working day, so it should reflect the way you imagined your life afterward. To get you started, here are signs that you’re ready to build a new home with Waterstone.
When you’re done reading, the easiest and most convenient next step is to contact us, via phone or email and schedule a preliminary discussion. Once you’ve made contact, we will suggest scheduling your complimentary “Let’s Talk” session so we can learn more about you and your vision for your home.
You Have Realistic Expectations
One of the benefits of building a new home with Waterstone is getting exactly what you want. Having a clear understanding of the type of home design you want makes the building process smoother. You also understand that building a new home takes time, especially when you want to get things just right. There are several factors that can affect the length of the building process, but you’re willing to wait to build the perfect home that you’ll love coming home to.
We suggest scheduling your complimentary “Let’s Talk” session so we can learn more about you and your vision for your home. This conversation will serve not only for us to learn about the wants and needs you have for your home, but also will give you the opportunity to check our chemistry. You will be able to answer for yourself if you think you’ll like working with us. If so, we can take the next step toward creating your home, together.
You’ve Checked Your Numbers
You’ve done your due diligence and figured out how much you can comfortably afford to spend on a new home. You may not realize that building a new home can be just as cost-effective as buying an existing home. When you consider not needing to renovate to make your home a better fit you’ll come out ahead by building from scratch.
That’s why we believe in full transparency, not just when it comes to pricing. By following the 5 Simple Steps, a proven process for a 5-Star Experience, we can pledge to build you the home you want, on time and on budget:
STEP ONE: “Let’s Talk”™ We sit down together and talk through your ideas and preferences, space needs and personal details. During this meeting, we establish the scope and budget range for your project.
STEP TWO: “Storyboard Process”™ We select your design team and transform your ideas into a preliminary schematic floor plan. We revise the estimated budget range to reflect the accepted plan and create an allowances chart for the selection process that follows. During this step we will assess and resolve specific code or structural issues.
STEP THREE: “Rendering to Scale”™ Here we finalize selections and specifications to complete the bid process. We also create a full set of construction plans which maximize design, innovation, and value engineering to meet your budget. Once these are finished, we present you a final construction agreement for your approval.
STEP FOUR: “The Big Event”™ Here, we transform your plans into reality and build out your home to specifications.
STEP FIVE: “Happily Ever After”™ At this point, we have completed your project on time, on budget, and have earned your 5-Star review. And you move into your new custom home.
You Know Exactly What You Want
Not only do you know how much you can afford, you also know exactly what features you want in your new home. If you decide you don’t want to compromise by living in a home that’s near perfect, it’s time to consider building your new home.
Even before hiring an architect, it is very important to find a custom home builder who shares your values and vision. The layout and design of a custom home can be developed and fine-tuned using such tools as computer-aided design software available from many talented architects, but putting together the actual structure is not a virtual process. It’s real and it requires hands-on craftsmanship. This requires the home buyer to choose the best builder for his budget and home style preference.
