Budget & Site Evaluation
The second phase of any building process is site selection. You must know the site with all side and set back measurements before you can ever start the plan design phase. The owner needs to know front elevations, Home owner associations restrictions and requirements as well as annual dues requirements. We will talk more about budget under the mortgage process.
Martin Construction Inc. highly recommends that you get engaged with your builder as earlier in the design construction process as Possible. We recommend you get the builder involved in the plan design stage so he can help you maximize your dollar and help develop a detailed set of plans, which is the back bone for any construction process. A detailed set of plans takes all the "Guess Work" out of the process and the customer will know what to expect.
The first phase of any building process is to be approved by a financial institute of your choosing for the dollar amount you qualify for in order to build your home. There are many financial institutions, but the primary thing to look for is a local company that has the cheapest rate provided all closing costs and fees are equal. Some financial institutions offer one time closing with a guaranteed lock in rate not to exceed a certain rate. Some homeowners like this method because they save some on closing costs. You should consult with your builder for some direction in this process.
