What to Expect When You’re Constructing

If your new construction project has you as giddy as a school girl, or as excited as you were to meet your first-born, you're not alone. It's finally time to own the home you've been pinning about, ripping pages out of magazines for, and dreaming of for years. However, there are a few simple factors to know about, and expect, that will make the construction process a lot easier.

  • Hire a Listing Specialist: You'll need to hire a realtor, or listing specialist to sell your current home. Forbes suggests, "Buying or selling a home is a major financial (and emotional) undertaking. A realtor will help you negotiate complicated contracts, have easy access to property, and are licensed professionals obligated by law to serve your best interests." A firm like Move Up America can pair you with an expert Realtor to sell your home, from a real estate professional that has a solid reputation, the ample experience necessary to guide you seamlessly through this intricate process, and the ability to offer you reduced commissions and rebates.
  • Know the basics of the builders' process: First the builder will prepare the site, and pour the foundation. The first inspections will occur at this phase. Rough framing, plumbing, electrical, and HVAC will happen next. Insulation will then be installed. Drywall and interior finishes can be added after insulation, and then exterior finishes like siding can be completed. More inspections will happen to make sure everything is up to code.
  • The Fun and Finishing Touches: This is the good part, where the wish-list comes in. Drainage, grading, driveways, patios, and final landscaping can happen now. Then, it's time for hard-wood floors, crown molding, quartz counter-tops, exposed beams, beautiful architecture, and farm sinks. Once these final additions are made, the plumbers, and HVAC contractors will come back and finalize their work. Then it's time for the final inspection and walk-through.
