27 Apr Things You Need To Know Before Building Your New Home
Building a home is very exciting and for a lot of people, it is one of the biggest investments that they will ever make. The process of bringing your dream home to life must be enjoyable but for that to happen, you need to make smart and focused decisions.
At GBC we have been part and parcel of many new homes builds so we know a thing or two about what the process entails. With over 10 years of experience in home building, we have a team that will make your home build smooth sailing.
In this blog, we will talk about a few issues that we feel each prospective homeowner must think of before they start building.
1. Your marital status
Let’s get this clear, there is no right or wrong marital status to be when you are thinking of building a new home. But your marital status will skew your home building experience in one way or the other. If you are single, banks may be a lot more rigid seeing as you only have one income. If you plan on getting married, your home design must account for more people in the home as well.
If you are in a relationship and are building as a couple but you are not married, you need to have a plan in place in the event that you decide to go your separate ways. Having the resolutions in place well in advance will bring you peace of mind.
2. Your lifestyle
Next, your lifestyle will play a big role in your home design. If you overlook this part, you may end up making poor design choices that will affect your future existence in the home. If you are a very social person that loves to have people over, not having enough room to entertain will make it hard for you to maximally enjoy your home. You also need to think of your hobbies and habits and make room for them in your home design.
3. Your finances
Finally, you will need to crunch the numbers so that you have an idea of what you will be able to afford. The process of financing a new home build is not the same as when you buy a house. You may need to get pre-approved as well. If your financing is going to be coming from the bank, you need to understand what each step of the financing process will entail and when the bank will be performing inspections.
