10 Important Questions to Ask Your Builder

Pricing, craftsmanship and location are factors to consider when looking for the right builder for your new custom home. Once you’ve narrowed down your preliminary list and start to meet with Asheville home builders, ask these important questions.

1. How many years have you been in business and how many homes have you built?

2. Can I tour a home you built for a past client?

3. What type of home warranty do you provide to homeowners?

4. Who will be my primary contact during the project and how will they keep me updated on issues and progress?

5. Can you provide potential clients with references that are available to speak about their experience building with you?

6. Why is your company better than other home builders? What makes you different?

7. Will you build on land that I purchase or do you only build in planned developments?

8. Do you have a final walk-through after the home is built?

9. How and when will the final price of my home be determined?

10. Will you work with my architect or help me make changes to a house plan I found online?

There are many other important questions that you will want to ask, but this list is a good starting point. You’ll be spending a lot of time with the Asheville NC home builder you choose so be sure you feel comfortable communicating with them and have a good sense that they’re straight-forward and trustworthy. The home building process can be exciting, fun, confusing and emotional. It’s so much more than just a house. It’s an investment of time and money and usually the result of years and years of hard work. We hope this blog post will help you navigate finding a home builder that’s a good match for you.

Asheville’s Luxury Home Builder

At Judd Builders, we understand the decision to build a custom luxury home is the culmination of hours and hours of research and hard work. A house is so much more when you’ve been dreaming about every detail prior to breaking ground. It’s where you’ll spend holidays with family and evenings entertaining friends. It’s where you’ll enjoy the indoor/outdoor living that the Asheville lifestyle and climate are so encouraging of.

Judd Builders builds luxury homes in Asheville every year but each one is special and unique to the homeowners. You will never feel like you aren’t getting the attention and service you want when you build with us. You’ll have a dedicated project manager that knows the in’s and out’s of your project and ensures every deadline is met and every one of your concerns is addressed along the way. Building a custom luxury home isn’t a small feat. Issues will arise but it’s the way they’re handled and how they’re communicated that makes all the difference. Your project manager will keep you in the loop from beginning to end and your input is valued at every stage. We believe that the custom home building experience can be enjoyable (we’ve seen it happen many times!) and the enjoyment should continue without any hiccups once you’ve moved into your quality-built, timeless home.

We’ve developed streamlined building processes that are all tracked through Buildertrend, our all-in-one software program that gives you real-time updates on your home and serves as the hub for all information and communication regarding your project. From one app you can check on the status of your home, email your project manager, check out progress photos, and approve selections at any time. Each home we build is custom so the software is critical for tracking to-dos and communication. We take pride in subcontracting as little as possible and employ a staff of 25 professional craftsmen and craftswomen which gives us precise quality control and attention to details. When we use a subcontractor for their expertise in a certain area of the building process, they are scheduled and communicated with through Buildertrend so everyone is on the same page.

Own land? Great! Need help finding a piece of property to build your Asheville luxury home on? We can help with that. Our past building experience in different areas in and around Asheville have provided us with invaluable knowledge of topography, cost of utilities, grading, zoning and restrictions. Some Realtors® can help you choose a lot that may seem like a good fit for what you’re wanting to build but an Asheville NC home builder can offer expertise many Realtors® don’t have. As an Asheville luxury home builder, we know the new home communities better than any other builder. The value you get out of a custom built home is directly related to the area and neighborhood it’s in. We can help you in the land decision-making process.

If you aren’t exactly sure of the style of home you want, we can help with that too. Styles of houses we’ve built include farmhouse, mountain craftsman, bungalow, French Colonial, French Provincial, rustic, cottage and ranch. Not sure what your style is? We can help you find a home plan that fits your needs or an architect that will work with you to realize your vision for your Asheville luxury home.

Check out our past custom homes projects and contact us today to discuss your project. We have an unlimited contractor’s license in NC. No dream is too big or too complex for us. We’ve been an Asheville luxury home builder since 2007 and our family of the employees has combined experience of more than 100 years.
