He is familiar with most all of the Architects and Builders in the area and can assist you in putting together the ideal team to build your home including the Architect, Builder, Interior Designer, Landscape Designer etc. Before purchasing your lot, in addition to determining the ideal community and location, it is important that you assess the site development costs to confirm you can build your dream home on the lot within you budget.
The site development costs are essentially an extension of the lot costs. For example an easy build lot that costs more may ultimately cost less if the site development costs of the alternative lots are substantial. Dave will also consult with you regarding your floorplan and any issues that may impact the functionality and resale value of your dream home.
In addition to valuable information regarding the location and community, the knowledge gained in learning about the new custom home building process is extremely advantageous when it comes to advising clients on resale homes. Does the Builder and or Architect have a good reputation? How is the quality of construction? Did the builder use quality materials that will stand up over time? Is the floorplan outdated or dysfunctional? What are the positive and negative elements in the area? It’s important to assess all of these factors when considering resale homes.
Many clients do not want to build nor do they have the time to build. Sometimes a semi-custom home is the solution for these clients. Many of the semi-custom home communities have great locations and good floorplans and as a result can hold their values, hence semi-custom homes are good resale homes too.
