After you’ve decided to build a home, the next and most important decision you need to make is: “With whom?” And like most decisions in life, arriving at the right choice takes patience, perseverance, and asking the right questions up front — so you can fully understand exactly whom you’re partnering with, and ensure you don’t receive any surprises after the project starts. 

The best way to do that is by asking questions like these of your home builder. Their answers should help you get to know one another and either raise concerns or solidify your decision. Remember, you want a builder who is eager to answer questions with the level of detail, transparency, and accountability that you demand of any business partner. Put them to the test!
