What not to do when building a new home: Mistakes to avoid for a successful build

Attention. If you’re planning to build a home, you’re gonna want to save this post for later!

Here’s the thing: Building a new home is exciting, but it’s also time-consuming and can be stressful (to put it mildly).  That’s why we want to share 4 mistakes homeowners make when building that could be 100% avoided with a little planning and guidance on the front end: 

→ Not setting a realistic budget: Building a new home can quickly become expensive if you don't set a realistic budget from the start. You must consider all the expenses, from permits to finishes, and plan accordingly.

→ Skipping the planning phase: It's important to take the time to plan out every detail of your new home, from the layout to the finishes. Rushing through this phase can result in costly mistakes and regrets down the line.

→ Choosing the wrong builder: Choosing the right builder is crucial when building a new home. Do your research and choose someone with a good reputation, experience, and a proven track record in the city or neighborhood where you want to build. 

→ Neglecting future needs: It's important to consider your future needs when building a new home. Will your family be growing (or shrinking)? Will you need more storage space? Consider these factors when planning out your new home.
