Step Three | Building the Home

How to Build and Buy a New Home

Finally!  The builder breaks ground on your new home.  It typically takes 4-5 months to completely finish a home once the construction begins. Communication should be frequent and regular.  Buyers are urged to ask their questions early, before the process gets too far along.

Step Two | Permits and Inspections

How to Build and Buy a New Home

Your new home is under contract, and now it is time for permitting.  Be aware that permitting is an important process that can take as long as building the home. Different cities within the Greater Houston Metropolitan area (including West University Place, Bellaire, etc.) have different building codes and inspection requirements, which can impact the price of your home and the time it takes to build it.  Inspections may be performed at critical stages of construction, such as foundation, framing, etc.

How to Build and Buy a New Home

Your contract with the builder is a binding legal document. Know who represents you. Earnest money can be lost if you walk out on the contract.  Modifications and upgrades should be specified in advance, in writing, and in the contract.
