How to Choose a Home Builder: Tips From New Leaf Homes, Rockford, Illinois

Building a home is an exciting experience, but with so much competition between builders, it can be hard to choose. With over 70 years of combined experience, the staff members at New Leaf Homes are Rockford's most knowledgeable home builders, proudly offering advice for those who are looking to build a home.

  • Know Your Needs: Some home builders construct a vast array of home sizes and styles, while others specialize in niche markets. Knowing what you want helps identify the home builders who are perfect for you. If you're a first-time buyer, research helps, as both the materials and the process can vary widely. Know the design you want, whether that's Victorian or contemporary; small and simple or a sprawling mansion. Thoroughly browsing portfolios can help you narrow down choices. There's a match for everyone; you just have to find yours.

  • Know Their Experience: Home builders vary widely in their knowledge and experience. Just because a firm is new, it doesn't mean that their staff is inexperienced. A veteran in the field could have started a new firm with an experienced staff for a specific niche of clients while an older firm might only build a few homes a year. Browse their portfolios, take a peek at past properties, and speak to former customers to seek the home builders who match your needs.
  • Take Home Tours: This part of the home building process isn't just informative; it's also a lot of fun. Once you've narrowed down a list of builders, nothing matches research quite like firsthand exploration. Tour multiple homes to see how they feel. There's nothing better than the feeling of touring a home and knowing that one day, you might have one just like it.

If you're looking to build a home in Northern Illinois or Southern Wisconsin, New Leaf Homes are the best custom home builders for the job. Visit their website for more information, or call (815) 977-5753 to start building your dream home today.
