“In a city like Houston, we are fortunate to have many good quality builders that meet those basic requirements,” he says.
Both homeowners and builders offer the following advice on what to look for when choosing a builder:
1. Ask for recommendations. Greene said she found her builder, Brandon Lynch, by asking her friends. Having a recommendation helps. “I’d definitely do my homework and look at a lot of custom builders,” she said. “Then go look at their houses and spend time talking with them.”
Lynch agreed. “Get to know the builder,” he suggested. “Get to know who they are and what they stand for – are they passionate about building homes or are they all about the money.”
2. Get lost in the details.Greene said that Lynch’s detailed bid sealed the deal for her. She explained that costs can go up if builders do not give all the information up front.
