You’ve decided to build a home and have the details down pat (thanks to your nights scrolling Pinterest + Houzz), but now comes the hard part — choosing the right builder. As you begin the hunt, here’s five things to look for in a local home builder (and how Veridian Homes implements these in how they do business): 

A guaranteed closing date 

Many builders won’t commit to a closing date upfront and, as a result, dates often get pushed back further and further during the homebuilding process

Veridian Homes assigns homebuyers a guaranteed closing date at contract signing and, as a bonus, homes take approx. 146 days to complete. According to the latest data from the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2020 Survey of Construction, the estimated average length of time from start to completion of new privately owned residential buildings is 6.8 months.

Buy local 

Working with local trades + suppliers means money will stay within the local economy. Veridian has decades-long relationships with local trades.

Ease of the building process 

What’s the walk in the park way to build a home? Complete building processes all in one place. That’s why Veridian Homes streamlined the aspects of home building you may not have considered, including no-construction-loans, turn-key financing +  making home feature selections.

Consistent and proven reputation 

Choosing a home builder with a good reputation will save you some headaches. Veridian Homes is Wisconsin’s leading home builder — both in the number of homes and in customer satisfaction. They are also the only three-time recipient of the National Housing Quality Gold Award in the US.

Quality of product 

Your home is likely the largest investment that you’ll make and you want to feel secure in your choice. 

Look for:

  • Industry accolades 
  • Energy-efficient products for long-term savings 
  • Features to suit your lifestyle

To meet these important needs, Veridian Homes partners with Perfect Environmental Performance to provide long-term, energy-efficient savings + has an in-house architect to help you make your home perfect for you. Bonus: They also have more than a few accolades.
