Building a custom home is a complex project and a significant investment. Being prepared for the project, and having a complete understanding of what is involved, can help reduce stress and unwanted surprises.
Sea West Construction Ltd. in Surrey offers custom-built homes and renovations. They share common questions to ask when building a new home.
What does the cost include?
Buying a new home is different than buying a pre-built home. A home building contract can seem massive, and there are many details to consider. Make sure you understand what is included in the base cost of your project. Sea West Construction will ensure you know what is included and what isn’t.
For example, there might be particular features you can and cannot opt-out of, depending on the developer. Also, some home builders include landscaping, while others do not but can recommend a skilled landscaper for your project. Having full transparency from your builder is essential for a smooth build.
When will my house be ready?
We’ve all heard stories of someone’s new home taking way longer to build, sometimes years longer, than first promised. Indeed, a building project often experiences delays, but an honest builder will still give you an accurate completion estimate. Having a general idea of your project’s completion will allow you to plan. Sea West Construction has experience building custom homes and can provide an accurate timeline, including a bit of wiggle room for unforeseen delays.

What is under warranty?
Brand new homes are less likely to have problems compared to older homes. Still, it doesn’t mean issues don’t sometimes happen. Your builder will provide one or more warranties on your home to protect you from these issues. Make sure you ask your builder what guarantees are included and when they expire.
How will I pay?
When you build a house, you typically take out a mortgage for the sum of the home and lot, minus your down payment. Working with the builder, you’ll break down the amount required for each payment and when that payment is due. Often, payments to the builder are due when the building project meets certain phases. You’ll withdraw from your mortgage to make these payments.
Sea West Construction structures its payment system around the type and scale of the job. A 10% deposit is required before the work begins, and the remainder will be paid out according to your specific, negotiated payment plan and schedule.
