Gathering Relevant Information
It is important that home-buyers gather as much information as possible before beginning the process of hiring a contractor. The first thing on any list should be finding a desirable piece of property for the house. This should not just be a good location; it should be the perfect location that meets all the needs of a buyer as well as the allotted budget. The cost of the property will also help determine how much can be spent on the actual home construction of their home.
Asking family, relatives, friends, and co-workers for recommendations, as well as checking other sources such as the internet and the local newspaper, can help add relevant data to a buyer’s list of information regarding contractors. Listening to the past experiences of these people is a good way to become more knowledgeable about the entire construction process and an invaluable aid in the collection of critical information.
For assurance and credibility, it is important to examine the background of the construction firm by checking the website of the National Association of Home Builders to determine if a prospective builder is certified.
The process of finding a contractor moves to the next stage after all the relevant information has been gathered. By this time, a buyer should have a home design plan and should have received all of the price quotes from prospective builders. At this point, the process should not be rushed and a decision made based on price quotes alone.
Further research should be done, such as evaluating a firm’s portfolio or calling former customers to inquire about the quality of the workmanship performed on their particular project. Visiting the construction site of a house that is in the process of being built for a personal evaluation of the workmanship of a prospective contractor is important and informative. Even better, if the owner of the house under construction is present, it is appropriate to ask for feedback about how the job is progressing and how they feel about that particular builder.
Important Things to Know
Conducting an interview with a builder can be stressful if proper organization of the above information has not been completed.

Observing how confidently the questions are answered and how any other information is communicated is paramount to the credibility of the contractor. The following are some things that should be covered during an interview.
