Building your new home is an exciting and at times overwhelming experience, but for your builder it is very routine, which is why you need to be an active participant in all aspects of the home building process to ensure you end up with your dream home. Varma Homes are the top builders in Kochi, Kerala for flats & apartments, and we assure you the best end results.
Building your new home cannot be a passive exercise, because there are so many decisions that must be made by you. If you are unable or unwilling to make these decisions, you will force your builder to make them and run the risk that your new home won't turn out the way you envisioned it or cost what you thought. Varma Homes envision to have a clarity in our thought processes which would eventually pave way to build quality homes delivered on time.
Here are few things you must know and take into consideration when building your new home:
1. Do a little research to find out the best reputed builders
Do your research when it comes to choosing a builder. How long have they been in the business? What is their reputation? Can you see examples of their work? Is there anyone who has used them before that you can speak to? Don't be afraid to meet with multiple builders to discuss your plans. Many builders are out there, but not all are created equal. Whether you search for information online or get recommendations from your family and friends, find out whether a builder is respected for doing quality work as well as being punctual.
The building process isn’t short, so make sure you are happy with your team — we, the best builders in Cochin are ready to help you with it. This requires doing a little
To start the building process right, you’ll want to do the following:
• Conduct extensive online research to make sure you’re using a reputable builder
• Get referrals from friends and family
• Look at examples of the builder’s current work
2. Ask questions (and more questions)
You need to understand the parameters of what the builder is doing for you. And you get that information by asking questions. Make sure the builder can execute what you want, because not all builders can accommodate custom designs.
One of the first things you should do before meeting with your team for the first time is to identify what you don’t know, and then eliminate that doubt. If this is your first time building, there are probably going to be a lot of things you don’t know, and that’s fine. There are no dumb questions.
Here are a few starter questions:
• What exactly are you paying for?
• Do you need full architecture/design/build services, or do you just want a blueprint?
• How much time should you allow?
3. Determine your budget
Before you start building your new home, run some numbers to determine whether you can afford to build the home you want. Know well the present scenario and make maximum utilization of the incentives provided by the government. Make sure you have a significant amount of money set aside for things you think of throughout the process that you want to buy yourself and have the builder install. Also, don't forget to budget for new furniture if needed for the whole house.
4. Find suitable land
Make sure you can find affordable land prior to getting caught up in finding a builder and designing a house. No matter why you're purchasing a piece of property, nothing is more important than location. If you're making an investment, don't buy land with no resale value. If you're aiming on starting up a business, don't buy land completely isolated from potential customers. And if you're looking to build a house, don't buy land you can't build on.
