So you’re thinking about buying a new home? Good decision. But, doing your homework is the first step to choosing the right home. Through the Winnegamie Home Builders Association’s buyer information, you’ll get tips on learning the home buying lingo, shopping around, choosing a builder, communicating with your builder, taking charge, wrapping up the sale and caring for your home after purchase.


    For lasting satisfaction, select a professional builder who is known for quality construction and strong customer service. Most home builders construct 10 homes per year and as small local business persons, rely heavily on referrals from previous customers to generate new business. As such, a home building company is only as good as its reputation. Most home building companies are in business to stay and they can only do so to the extent that they have satisfied customers. In fact, many builders live in the communities they build.

It is the American Dream to own your own home. Many people think they will save an enormous amount of money by building on their own, but this could end up being a costly mistake, financially, emotionally, and physically. Your home is the single biggest investment you will make in your lifetime. Do you have the expertise to make sure this home will last your lifetime? Ask yourself the following:

  • Do I have the time to undertake a time-consuming project? Is it worth that time?
  • How stressful will this be for my family?
  • Do I have the skills to properly build a home?
  • Do I have the correct tools for the job I plan to do? If not, how much money will those tools cost? Will I use them again once the home is completed?
