The Most Important Questions to Ask a Luxury Builder

When you decide to build a luxury custom home, you’ll find yourself faced with a lot of important decisions about design, functionality, and everything in between. But, before you can even attempt to make those decisions, you have to choose the right luxury builder for the job. 

To make your decision easier, you should come prepared to ask potential builders the following questions to help you get a better sense of what it would be like to work with them. 

What Is the Average Time It Takes Your Team to Build a Custom Home?

By asking this question, you’ll not only get a better idea of the timeline it will take to build your home, but how the builder operates. If a builder promises a very quick timeline, it could be an indicator that they’ll sacrifice quality to stay on track. 

In our experience, homeowners would much rather the project take a little longer than originally expected if it means that they’re getting the highest quality craftsmanship.

What Kind of Customer Is Not a Good Fit for Your Team?

The simple fact of the matter is every builder is not a good fit for every homeowner. The right builder knows this and will be upfront about who they believe is a good fit for their services. 

What Kind of Quality Assurance Inspections Do You Perform During Construction?

When you’re building a luxury custom home, you want to make sure that care and attention to detail are important to your builder, so your home will last. Find out what processes they have in place to ensure high-quality work.

Who Will Oversee the Construction of My Home?

Building a luxury custom home is unique in that it’s a very personal process. In our experience, most of our clients want to be involved along the way, to make sure every detail they’ve imagined will come to life. 

Before choosing a builder, make sure that you’ll have a dedicated point of contact throughout the build process you can turn to with questions and concerns.

How Many Homes Do You Currently Have Under Construction?

You don’t want to work with a luxury builder that has too many projects on their plate at one time. Ask about how many projects they usually work on to make sure they have the bandwidth to give your home the attention it deserves. 

What Do Your Previous Customers Have to Say?

Finally, the best way to learn what it’s like to work with a luxury home builder is to see what their previous customers have to say. Ask about references you can contact or if they have testimonials to share.

  • “It truly is the home of our dreams. It’s where we spend time together, make memories with our kids and grandchildren, and fulfill our life’s passions. I can’t recommend the Rufty Homes team enough if you’re looking for your own forever home.”

    - Frank & Barbara

  • “Of course we’ll be working with Rufty again on all of our future projects, including a fourth home on the property for our youngest daughter, when she’s ready.”

    - Danny & Renate

  • “There was never a question that they were putting our needs first and they were always honest with us. At one point in the building process, we talked in-depth about reconfiguring the layout of the home to change the orientation of the garage. Jon was upfront with us and told us they’d absolutely do it if we wanted, but he warned us that lumber prices were starting to go up, which could impact the project.”

    - Chad & Caroline

  • “We put a lot of time and thought into designing our home, and it was important to us that we could find a builder that would support our vision, while also helping us make smart design decisions. After our first meeting with Rufty Homes, it was clear that they understood our goals and were on board some of the more unique aspects that were important to us.”
