The Journey to Your New Home: Step 4 - Change Happens

As the construction of your new home unfolds, you may see an opportunity to make changes that will enhance a space, or upgrade a product or system. This is a normal part of the process.

Inform your builder of the change you would like to make. They can let you know what is involved in making it happen and provide you with a document that offers all the details of the potential change. This document is called a “Change Order” and it will clearly state what the change to construction will be, the cost or credit of the change, and if more time will need to be added to the closing date.

Your signature and authorization will be required before the change can occur. This documented system of change orders will eliminate the possibility of miscommunication and unforeseen costs, and will assure you that your builder is aware and in control of everything happening on your jobsite.
