Friday, March 6th, 2015

Choosing a home builder is perhaps the most important decision you can make in the home building process. It’s important to find a builder with whom you have a good rapport, and who understands your vision and can help you execute it. It’s also important to find a builder with experience and a reputation for quality work and satisfaction. In this week’s blog, we’ll talk about some tips for finding the right home builder in Maryland for your new home.

5 Tips for Finding a Home Builder in Maryland

Check with Your Local Home Builders’ Association

Your local home builders’ association is a great place to start. They’ll have a list of all the builders who work in your area. You can find your local builders’ association here.

Look Through Local Ads

Check your local newspaper for real estate ads. There should be a section with ads from plenty of builders who work in the area. This will also give you a basic idea of what kind of homes they build, as well as pricing.

Talk to Friends and Family

Friends and family are a great resource to use in your search for a home builder in Maryland. The best thing about friends and family is you can trust them to give an honest opinion of their experiences with a home builder. Even if your friends and family haven’t had experience with any local home builders, they may know someone else who does.

Talk to Local Real Estate Agents

It’s an agent’s job to know everything there is to know about the local real estate market, so you can be sure they’ll know which home builders build in your area.

Visit Local Home Shows

Many builders put on home shows and open houses to give people an opportunity to see examples of their work. Many times these are the first homes in a series of homes or development the builder is working on. Take advantage of these opportunities to meet builders and get a feel for their building styles.
