Building a custom home is a long and complex process that has many variables. While the finished product can be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life, the path to getting there can be quite stressful if you're not prepared. Before you begin the process of building your custom dream home, there are a few things you should know that will help everything go more smoothly so you can have peace of mind throughout the planning and building process.
A realtor that really knows the area
Before you can even get started with the design and construction of your dream home, you'll need to find suitable land for your house to be built on. If you're new to the area or don't know it like the back of your hand, tracking down the perfect location for your custom home can be very difficult and stressful. That's why it's important to work with a realtor that truly knows the area where you'd like to build.
A good realtor will be able to find you great properties for the best possible prices. They'll also be able to give you all the information you need to know about nearby schools and cities.

The right neighborhood
A bonus of having a great realtor is that they'll be able to help you find the right neighborhood. While the neighborhood you live in might not be at the top of your mind when planning your custom home, it's definitely something you need to consider. It's important to make sure the neighborhood you choose has everything you need, after all, you'll be living there for quite some time.
Some things to consider when choosing a neighborhood are:
- Does the neighborhood have a clubhouse?
- Is there a pool?
- What does the HOA cost?
- What are the policies for things like trash pickup?
These are just a few of things to think about when deciding on a neighborhood to build your dream home in.
A builder with a good reputation in the community
After you've found the right realtor and picked out the perfect spot for your new custom home, you'll need to work with a builder to make your dream home a reality. Choosing the right builder is probably the most important part of the entire process. The last thing you want is to work with a builder that just wants to get the house built as quickly as possible and doesn't take your needs and requests seriously.
A good custom home builder will work with you through every step of the process making sure everything is to your exact specifications. They'll understand how important it is to get everything just right so that you're fully satisfied, not just with the end result, but also the entire process of building.
A reputable home builder will be well known by the communities they serve and it should be easy to identify the best builders by the satisfaction of the families they build homes for.
