Home Building Advice...
to Save You Money, Time, and Stress

How to get the custom home you want,
at the price they quoted,
and move in on the promised day.

It's easier than you might think when you have these 3 bits of knowledge:

First, you need to know how choose a good building contractor. It really isn't too difficult when you know:

  • What to look for
  • The right questions to ask
  • The red flags that will steer you away froma bad one.

Next, you need to know what you should reasonably expect from that contractor - in terms of:

  • Assistance with loan document preparations
  • Assistance in dealing with the permitting process
  • His or her contract
  • Deadlines
  • Guarantees, and more.

Then you need to know what will be expected of you.

You have dozens of choices to make, and when you know about them ahead of time - and know how different choices might affect your future comfort - the liklihood of loving your home 6 months from completion increases tenfold.

"The Secret to success is Knowledge, combined with Preparation."

And now you can have them both.

That's a huge investment to take chances with, isn't it?

If you're borrowing the money to build and lack of planning causes a 30 or 60 day delay in the middle of construction, you might pay $500 or $1,000 extra in interest before you get to move in. More, depending upon how much you owe at the time.

And, you could end up like friends of ours - forced to pay rent on a home they'd sold - because they couldn't move out on time. You'll see their story and learn how to avoid it on page 40.

So what would you expect to pay for information that can save you hundreds, and even thousands of dollars?

Just $17

We know, that's less than the price of dinner. Heck, $17 won't even buy one gallon of paint for your new house. But we want everyone to have this information, and use it. If we priced it higher, you might put off buying it - wondering if it really has information you can use.

We understand that - we do the same thing.

At $17, even if you learn one thing, you've got your money's worth. You'll learn plenty more than that, but at this price you don't have to think about it.

Just the section on how to choose a contractor could save you thousands, as will our advice about contract clauses.

You have everything to gain by getting and using this information.
