Make an appointment with your New Home Consultant and start from the beginning. First, select the home, then move onto the custom changes and options that you’d like to add. Second, determine how much your land will cost and the allowance items necessary to prepare your land (well and septic, driveway, sidewalks, landscaping, etc.). Don’t worry … your New Home Consultant can give you accurate estimates for all these items. What they won’t do is give you a low ball price to make your total investment look great but end up costing you more money in the end, but an accurate estimate with experience and local knowledge behind it.
