Building a new home can be a complex process. When you build a home you’re making an investment in your future and you want to make sure you invest well. Asking your future home builder a few questions before you start will help the process go smoothly.
What is the home builder’s history?
How long has your builder been in the industry? Do they have satisfied customers? The management team at CastleRock has more than 50 years experience in homebuilding and community development. To view what our customers have to say about our new homes in Austin, San Antonio, Bastrop or Houston, visit our testimonials page.
What brands/products does the builder use when building a new home? At CastleRock, we work with GE, Energy Star, and LP Tech Shield products, just to name a few. Your home builder should work with quality products as well.
What kind of warranty does your home builder offer?
Check to make sure the warranty meets your needs. A two year limited warranty and ten year major structural limited warranty work well.
Do you have the option to customize your new home?
You’ll want to check on this if you have some design ideas of your own. At CastleRock, we have a design gallery where customers can come to discuss their needs, whether they’re looking for a custom home in San Antonio or Houston, or a new home in Bastrop or Austin. CastleRock customers receive 4 to 6 hours of professional design services with the purchase of their home.
What is the price range on the builder’s new homes?
Make sure the price range fits your needs. If you’re looking for a new home in the low 100’s, you might be looking at building in a different area than someone looking for a home in the 250’s.
Does your home builder offer mortgage services?
Hiring a home builder who can also accommodate your mortgage needs is a definite plus. That’s why we have CastleRock Mortgage. At CastleRock our goal is to make the home-buying process an enjoyable one. We believe having your own personal loan officer on hand is a part of that.
