5 Concerns When Building A New Home

“It takes hands to build a house but only hearts can build a home.”

At McAdams Homes we put our hearts into every home we build ensuring that you have the best possible experience and that experience starts by addressing all your concerns and easing your mind about the home building process. Here are some of our most commonly asked questions:

Q: How do I pick a home builder?
A: Easy, when you pick a McAdams Homes neighborhood like The Landing at Lewis Creek you are working with our team of professionals. You don’t have to search around to find another builder. Our team is knowledgeable about every aspect of the building process and will guide you every step of the way!

Q: Are new home prices set in stone?
A: Yep, in our communities you don’t have to worry about negotiating for the best price because our homes come with the best price already! Our homes are some of the most affordably priced houses in Southeastern NC. We guarantee you we will exceed your expectations and make sure you get more for your money!

Q: Do I have to use the builder’s mortgage lender?
A: No, you don’t; but we have a great network of lender and mortgage professionals like BB&T Trust and Guaranteed Rate that we work with that understand all the ins and outs of building a new home. Still, the choice is yours!

Q: Do I have to build my home from scratch?
A: Nope, only if you want to! Often times, we have model homes or spec homes available. Model homes are usually staged so that you can get a feel for how the home will live. Spec homes are usually complete or almost complete, so you can walk through them and see if you like the feel of the home. However, you can usually still make some selections along the way such as hardware, paint colors, etc. The possibilities are endless and we are always willing to work with you!

Q: What if something goes wrong?
A: Our Quality Assurance Representative will walk through your home with a comprehensive checklist to verify our high attention to detail, the functionality and construction of your home. Your Quality Assurance Representative will provide you with a detailed demonstration of your home systems, a review of the McAdams Homes warranty manual and will discuss other useful information to make sure you are 100% satisfied. We will escort you through your new home and help rectify any issues identified to make sure that all is well before you move into your new home!

Work with a Trusted Builder

Building a new home is one of the largest investments most people will make in their lifetime, so it is important to get it right the first time. Choosing the best custom home builder for you and your home is essential to its success. As in any relationship, there needs to be trust and clear, honest communication. At McAdams Homes, we pride ourselves on these values and on consistently exceeding our customers’ expectations!

The homeowner/homebuilder relationship should be a close one. You are collaborators on a very personal project, and a trusted builder should show genuine commitment and desire to be your trusted advocate through the entire journey. They need to care about your home as if they were building it for their family, and they need to handle your resources with as much respect and responsibility as if they were their own. How do you know when you’ve found a builder like this? Above all, they will take the time to ask questions. They will listen to what’s important to you, and then adopt those priorities. Being trustworthy and service oriented is the approach we take with all of our customers at McAdams Homes!

There is a lot about new homebuilding that can only be learned by experience. The more experience the better! You want a builder with a history of happy customers and beautiful homes behind them. It also means that when problems crop up, an experienced builder will be able to solve them quickly and effectively because they’ve pretty much seen it all before. Finally, you also want a strong and experienced team. The McAdams Homes team is comprised of some of the best in the business and has a fantastic dynamic that results in customer satisfaction across the board.

Hand-in-hand with experience goes a proven track record. McAdams Homes has a stellar reputation with past clients and past collaborators. Healthy relationships are the lifeblood of the new home construction business, and we are proud of our ability to maintain these relationships! Don’t want to take our word for it? Take it from some of our many satisfied customers…

“Building with McAdams Homes has been the most pleasant experience. They went above and beyond our expectations in every way. They truly care about the home owners and the product they deliver. They offer a lot of things standard that other builders charge extra for. During our walkthrough we requested some things that we thought was a little over the top, but I figured it never hurts to ask, and they did everything we requested! Blown away by their service and the house they built for us. We highly recommend using McAdams Homes.”
