FAQ # 2
How do I choose a builder?
Easy, just pick Fieldstone Family Homes!
No seriously, You should visit with the builder and/or the owner(s), ask questions, check realtor and trade references, and talk with past clients. Focus on builder's that are members of Local and National Builders Associations as they have to adhere to strict guidelines and business practices to become recognized members. Make sure your builder is properly insured, and offers a third party warranty coverage option. Most importantly you need to be sure that you are "comfortable" with the builder in that they exhibit an open communication forum, are honest, and answer your questions promptly and thoroughly. You will be working with the builder for anywhere from 90 days to 2 years depending on the home, and need to have a good feeling about that individual or company. No builder should be chosen or ruled out based on just a few comments from any one source. If you find a builder, home, or price point that interests you, perform your due diligence by meeting with them, checking references from actual clients, and getting your own impression.
FAQ # 3
