How To Choose A Custom Home Builder
Mike Becknal & Company has been around for a long time building luxury custom homes for families here in Lubbock. We know just how important a home is to your family, and that’s why we put together these tips to consider when searching to find the right builder for you. Even if it means you do not choose us, we still want to help in any way we can. There are several qualities and attributes to consider when choosing a custom home builder.
Custom Home Builder Qualities & Attributes
First, find out if the home builder a custom home builder or a speculative builder. Unfortunately, many businesses claim to be “custom home builders” but suit partially within that category. For example, the home builder may construct homes hoping that a family will purchase the house when they finish. This what is known as a “Speculative Builder” or “Spec Builder.” In other words, they are speculating that someone will buy the home they built. A speculative build is not a truly custom home. The design and layout are specific to the builder’s specifications and not the needs and desires of a particular family. With certainty, you can trust that we at Mike Becknal & Company are custom home builders that bring luxury to Lubbock and surrounding areas. We work with the family to customize the house in its entirety down to every last detail. Please take a moment to review some of our previous luxury custom home builds to find your inspiration.
Your Home Build Point-of-Contact
Another attribute to research is who will be managing your build by name. If the owner is the most experienced person on your team, consider if they will be available to you throughout your home build process and after. Some home builders have several other companies to maintain on top of their home building business. Here at Mike Becknal & Company, your home receives our entire focus. Owners, Mike and Lucas, have over 60 years of combined construction experience and will always be either a phone call or text message away to answer all of your questions and address any of your concerns.
