We usually get all kinds of questions about what goes into building a new home, how long it takes, who will be there, etc. And we are always happy to answer them! But if you are looking to build your new home and are not sure about the questions to ask, this list can help you figure out what it is that you should be asking!

  1. Are you licensed and insured in the state? In this case, it would be the state of Virginia.
  2. What are your professional qualifications?
  3. How many years of experience do you have? The more the merrier!
  4. How many homes do you build a year?
  5. Have you worked in the area before?
  6. Do you or your preferred lender have incentives?
  7. How and when can I make changes to my design?
  8. Can I take a look at your model homes? You can see the work up close before you sign the contract.
  9. What is your warranty?
