Whether you’re building a home in Louisville, KY or Scottsdale, Arizona, you’d better make sure and hire a builder who can solve problems. It’s one of the biggest talents a good builder develops. The building business is all about problems. No matter how good you are or how long you’ve been doing it (we’re getting close to 40 years), you encounter new problems on every custom home. Your Louisville custom builder better be flexible, negotiable, and able to think on his feet.
The other thing you’d be wise to look for in your custom builder is the ability to take you through the entire building process. When you build a new custom home, you have to take into account the whole process, not just the home itself. Sometimes the home is the easiest part.
Here are just some of the areas that can cause headaches for an inexperienced custom builder.
- laying the home out on the lot
- the plot plan
- the permitting process
- the zoning approval, if required
- the financing
- the appraisal (volumes could be written on this alone)
- the closing
- the callbacks
To get a home started, to move it along, to finish it properly, to close it, and to have clients move in requires a complete approach. Knowledge of the process is key, and sometimes it comes down to knowing the right people with utility companies, zoning departments, the state, or even the FDIC.
If there is something that makes P.L. Lyons stand out above the rest other than quality, it’s this—we can get the difficult projects done when others can’t or give up.
