There is a process that is involved when building your custom home and each step requires a partnership between you and Excel Real Estate Consultants. You can get a pretty good idea of everything involved with building a custom home by reading this. Our process will consist of the following phases:
PHASE 1: PLANNING
We will sit down with you to determine what type of home you are looking to build and get ideas of how you want the interior and exterior to look. If you are wanting a traditional style house, modern, or country look and feel, we will ensure your vision is our vision.
PHASE 2: LOCATION
Whether you already own the lot where you want your custom home or if you want us to find the perfect piece of land for you, this will have to be decided on before any construction begins. We will ensure this piece of land has the proper entitlements (zoning) so that your custom home is allowed to be built on the specific piece of land.
PHASE 3: CONCEPT PLAN
If you already have the architecturally drawings, great! We will need to meet with your architect to discuss. If you do not have approved architectural plans, we will have you meet with our architect to lay out the plans for your custom home. Our architect will listen to what it is you want and begin the initial states of drawing out your new home. Or, you can visit websites such as dreamhomesource.com where they already have everything needed for us to get started!
PHASE 4: REVISIONS
Once we have the first draft of the architectural plans, we will meet with you and the architect to make any necessary revisions. Sometimes things look good on paper but within the building process, it is not able to happen. We will make revisions to ensure your custom home can actually be built as drawn. Once you are satisfied that all your needs have been met, a final set of plans will be drawn up in which you will sign. After you have signed off on the plans, we will begin construction!
PHASE 5: SELECTIONS AND DESIGN
Right before construction begins, you will begin the process of selecting the custom items you would like for the finishes of the interior and exterior of your home. For the exterior, you will select the brick color, stone, stucco, roofing, etc. You will then select the interior items that you want. You will select your cabinets, countertops, trim, appliances, electrical items, flooring, paint, and many other items that we will go over when we are at this phase.
PHASE 6: CONSTRUCTION
During this time we will begin building your custom home. The process will begin quickly and before you know it, your house will be framed. At this point it will look like construction has come to a standstill but we can assure you, things are happening everyday. Perhaps there is a city inspection that is needed before we can move on or perhaps we are working on electrical, plumbing, HVAC or other items inside the house.
PHASE 7: CLOSING
Just before your home is finished to your liking, we will have a final walk-through to ensure you are completely satisfied. We will also schedule a time to close with the title company which will transfer ownership to you and release any construction liens on the property. As soon as the title company records you as the owner and the sale is funded, you will be given the keys to your brand new custom home!
Throughout each phase, we will be with you through everything. You will never feel as though you are alone and your concerns are not being addressed. We pride ourselves in creating happy homeowners that absolutely LOVE their custom home, built by Excel Real Estate Consultants.
