Surviving the Credit Crisis – How to Choose a Contractor/Remodeler.

Buying a newly constructed home is a big decision and you want to get full value for your investment. This means choosing an established and reputable builder – someone you can trust, someone who has the technical skills and knowledge to build a good home, and someone who will deal with you fairly and professionally.

Remember that when you buy a home you are also “buying” the builder! Before you enter into a legal agreement with anyone, you should know what questions to ask to make sure that the builder you use is a good communication and relationship match and that you get the home that’s a good fit for you!

Join me today as my guest, Tim Knopp, Executive Vice President of the Central Oregon Builders Association, and I discuss the simple steps that will give you the information you need to choose the right builder with confidence!

Before you begin this process be clear about what you want! It’s hard to get what you want if you don’t ask for it. In the home building business, the real professionals want to know your expectations and needs. So don’t hesitate to share your vision. Not everyone finds this easy to do, but it’s the #1 most important element in having a wonderful construction experience!

And don’t forget…

Get pre-approved by your lender before you go shopping to make sure that the price range of home you’re considering will fit comfortably within your budget!
