Looking for New Homes in Middle Georgia?
We all have a tendency to choose a cheaper price when choosing most things in life. Sometimes we can get away with the cheaper price, but more often then not, it can get us in trouble. Especially big ticket items, like automobiles and New homes in the market place today. Choosing a builder based on the lowest cost per square foot or the lowest sales price, has proven over and over again to be a huge mistake, and is likely not getting the best value. Of course, like anything else, there are some cheap homes out there right now, but this is probably not the best way to go.
If you really think about it, there are reasons for lesser priced homes. Usually a lesser priced home is the product of a builder who is using inferior products, inexperienced labor force, less expensive ground, and much more.
Common sense tells us that there is a premium to be paid for a superior home. By that we mean a home that has more exacting standards, performs well over time, maintains its value as an investment and is built by a builder who stands by his work. Let’s take a closer look at these higher initial costs and why we believe it is worth paying a reasonable premium for such a home.
Professional builders who build to a high level of quality have higher standards for the materials that go into their homes. They cull lumber piles for the straightest studs and send the warped and knotted ones back to the lumberyard. They protect materials from weather, seek out the best warranties and track problems to weed out poor-performing materials.
When a company insists on that level of quality and provides that level of attention and care, one would expect to pay a bit more. Like cheap houses, cheap materials can deliver substandard results that often cost more to repair or replace than the premium you might pay upfront for a higher-quality option.
Professional builders know that their reputation is on the line with every home they deliver. When homeowners begin to see evidence of poor workmanship, it doesn’t take long for them to spread the word about how poorly the builder (and the house) performed. As with better materials and products, a better-built home may (and should) cost more upfront, but cost less over time. As we’ve seen repeatedly over the years, it requires less repair, replacement and maintenance in the long run.
Builders and Customers both seek Better Experience when going through the building process. The better Professional builders usually have better systems in place for keeping the customers abreast of the progress, change orders, etc. as the house progress’s. This is especially important for out of town customers. Another important item you will see with the professional builders are detailed blueprints to quote and build off of. Taking all of these factors into consideration, one should balance the price with the reputation of any builder you are considering. Here at C.W.
