Either builder will be able to produce a nice new home for you. It will just depend on what you are looking for in a home and how much input you would like to have. It is important to know the difference between the two builder types so that you pick the one that fits your needs.
Both types of builders are usually available all around the country but typically you will find more custom built homes in the Northeast versus more production homes in the western and southern states.
There is a clear difference between the two builders. A custom builder is producing a one-of-a-kind home that has more design details and input from the buyer. A production builder will have multiple homes being built at the same time will similar style and less input from the buyer.
If you would like to be involved with every step in the building of your home and/or you already have land, already have floor plans, etc. then a Custom Builder might be your best choice. You will have more say and be involved in the entire process and will have many decisions to make. In addition, expected to pay more for this type of home as there will be many variables to consider.
A Custom home does not have to be expensive and large, it can be a ranch-style home that is simple, regardless, it is built to fit your lifestyle and needs.
First, you will need to pick between at least the two main types of Production Builders:
- National Companies
- Locally Based/Regional Firms
Typically you will not be able to change the basic structure of the home such as room layout, the floor plan and square footage. You will be able to personalize certain parts to your home though. You may also be able to pick from packages such as “good/better and best”.
Either type of builder you choose should be able to help you through the building process so that you can enjoy your new home to the fullest.
