faqs about building a new home
What's so special about building with MGM Builders?
From start to finish, we source some of the best materials and techniques out there for residential construction. You won't see us cutting corners because we value quality workmanship and take the extra time to make sure every detail is right. Our home designs are well thought out, and not one-size-fits-all. We don't just create a home that you can trust will stand for generations, but a building experience that is easy and straightforward.
How long does it take to build a house?
That depends on a few factors. First, whether the house is a fully custom home design, or if it's one of our Made to Measure home designs. Our custom homes generally take between 5 and 6 months to build from the day we start excavating till the closing date. Our Made to Measure homes can reduce that time by 1-2 months. Some things that are out of our control, like inclement weather or finding ledge on a lot, can affect the timeline too.
Is it realistic to stay on budget when you build a new home?
We always try and be upfront about unexpected extra costs that can come up during the construction process so that you can plan ahead. Our custom homes are priced to approximate the level of customization you are looking for, but it will be up to you whether to stay within those numbers as you pick out materials and other design options. Our Made to Measure homes are a fixed rate for the structure, so the price should not change for the home itself after the contract is signed. We have a list of potential costs that can occur during excavation, water testing, well drilling, etc., so you can be aware of them.
How does the financing work for new home construction?
We offer to carry the construction loan for the duration of the project, and up to three days after the certificate of occupancy is issued, so you don't have to worry about taking out a construction loan yourself.
Do you offer any sort of warranty on your houses?
Yes, we warranty our homes for a year from the closing date for any problems that may arise after moving into your new home.
