If you’re looking to build a luxury custom home in Atlanta there is no shortage of amazing builders and architects. Lots and teardowns however, are getting harder to find for builders potentially driving up prices in the future. If you’re new to the luxury homebuilding process there are a few things to remember that can be helpful –
1. It can streamline the process to work with an artichect that your builder recommends. If you’ve done your research on the builder and trust them then you should trust that they’re going to recommend a good architect to you. If you do decide to hire your own architect this article is very helpful. We recommend scheduling regular meetings with both sides and trusting your builder when it comes to budget.
2. It’s always smart to have a buyer’s agent when building a custom home. In addition to knowing which builders are reputable in the Atlanta area, a real estate agent can help you negotiate a deal that will save you much more money than just the 2-3% the builder takes off the price. They’ll keep the project on track, fight for your best interests, and help you schedule an inspection on the final build. It’s important to remember that the builder’s agent is trying to continue to get the builder’s business by not giving you the best deal. The builder’s sales reps are also on the builder’s team and will try and get the highest profit margins for the builder. An experienced agent can help make sure everything is put into writing and make sure it gets completed the right way.
