Rockford's Expert Home Builders on 3 Things You Should Know When Building a Home, Rockford, Illinois

Many people dream of building their own home but the process can be surprisingly complicated. If it's your first time building a new house, you may be wondering where you should start. The home builders at Rockford-based New Leaf Homes help homeowners’ dreams come true in Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin by providing everything they need to build a home from start to finish. 

Here are three things you should know when building a home from New Leaf Homes' team of expert home builders:

  • Know Your Budget: The first step should be determining how much money you have for your project. Few people have the cash to pay for a new house without help from a bank. Check your credit score, make a note of the balance in your savings account, and contact a bank to get pre-approved for a mortgage before you start the construction process.
  • Find the Perfect Location: If you already own a lot of land, you’re ahead of the game. Most people will need to find a location on which to build. You can work with a realtor to find the perfect spot or you can ask the home builders at New Leaf Homes to assist you. Their team only selects lots in the best neighborhoods.

  • Hire the Right Home Builder: You probably already have some ideas in mind for your new place, but speak with a home builder and take a look at the floor plans they have available. When you're choosing a contractor, make sure you do your research, ask them questions about their prices and timeline, and read over the contract very carefully before signing.

When you work with New Leaf Homes, you'll find a team of expert architects, designers, engineers, and home builders who are dedicated to turning your dreams into a reality. They offer customizable floor plans, homes that are already under construction, and completed houses that are ready for residents. 

Start the process of building your own home by calling New Leaf Homes at (815) 977-5753 to schedule a consultation. You can also browse floor plans and listings online.
