Moving In! - Enjoying your New Custom Home and What to Expect in the First Year.

All of the your research and hard work has paid off! You researched and found the right Builder, you have made all of your decisions and the closing held no surprises- the house was perfect, and the final bill was exactly what you had expected. Seems there is nothing left to do but enjoy your new home! This may very well be the case and hopefully you will not need to call for warranty.

However, with the complexity of the homes today and the many different suppliers and trades involved it is possible that something may require explanation or adjustment. The true test of your choice of builder is service after the sale!

  • It should not be a problem to arrange for lessons on your new home's various components.
  • If a problem arises it should get dealt with in a reasonable amount of time.
  • Information about everything in your home should be available to you at any time.

You and your Builder have worked together for months. His only goal during the entire process was to exceed your expectations and have you refer him to family, friends and associates. Congratulations, you did everything right. 

I am confident you will enjoy your new Custom Home!
