Before choosing a running mate, presidential candidates have a vetting process to weed out the undesirables and find only the best. By the same token, you’ll want to “vet” South Carolina home builders before choosing one to buy your next home. Here’s how!
Some people have horror stories of buying a home — only to find that it is unfinished or their warranties are not upheld because the builder has skipped town! Can you imagine? You want a builder that has a long LOCAL track record of satisfied buyers and a reputation for excellence.
*Note: Bill Beazley has been working in South Carolina for 30+ years!
No one wants to live in a cookie-cutter box. While it was economical to build homes based on a “template” after WWII to meet population demands, it’s a dated model. These days, we like our communities to have a cohesive look, but we also want each home to speak to the individual.
*Note: Bill Beazley is the area’s largest pre-sale builder. You can customize your home based on dozens of floor plans, finishes, materials, colors and preferences! Our buyers’ favorite part of the process (aside from the fun tours!) is visiting our South Carolina Home Builders Design Center, where they can see and feel everything from carpets to cabinets.)
Your bottom line matters. Many homeowners found themselves underwater because they bought more house than they could reasonably afford. Prices have dropped for all housing types — new construction included. There are many area buyers, but some are still trying to command pre-recession prices.
*Note: At Bill Beazley homes in South Carolina, you can buy beautiful, never-lived-in, semi-custom estates starting as low as $60/sq ft. According to Trulia, the average price per square foot for existing homes in Columbia, South Carolina is $75/sq ft, so you can see what a truly excellent deal it is to buy BRAND NEW FOR LESS!
The Best Way To Know Which South Carolina Home Builders Are Legit…
Most builders are happy to set aside time for a consultation to determine your needs. Talking with a customer service rep will give you an idea of professionalism of the builder you’re dealing with. You also want to double-check to ensure the builder has a favorable rating with the Better Business Bureau and is listed with a professional organization like the Home Builders Association or the National Association of Home Builders.
