with the Home Builders Association of Middle Tennessee
Established in 1945, the Home Builders Association of Middle Tennessee (HBAMT) is a voluntary, not-for-profit trade association dedicated to providing the American dream of homeownership to all residents of Middle Tennessee.
For the consumer, what is the most important thing when looking for a builder? Most home buyers know that new homes offer outstanding advantages: They’re built to incorporate better energy efficiency, have lots of modern amenities and the latest safety features, and have floor plans to fit various lifestyles.
With all those enhancements in mind, it’s important to select a builder who has the skills and knowledge to deliver an experience and home that you and your family will enjoy for years to come.
When you are looking for a builder, here are some things to keep in mind:
Seek a professional
Look for companies that emphasize customer service, quality, integrity and a commitment to education.
A company that’s truly committed to client satisfaction will emphasize outstanding service from every member of its team and maintain a professional approach in every interaction.
Be careful when assessing the prices set by different builders. The quality of the materials and service can make a significant difference in cost. You get what you pay for.
Is your prospective builder trustworthy? Be cautious if you hear anyone suggest that a builder has been less than honest with clients.
Commitment to education
Professional builders know that the quality of their service depends on ensuring that their team members have the tools to be successful with professional designations and continuing education.
A reputable builder will be glad to provide you with names of former clients, as well as suppliers, subcontractors and consultants such as architects and engineers with whom they’ve worked.
And here’s the best advice of all:
