Luxury Home Builders

Property Management

There’s a few companies that we have been fortunate to work with because some of our clients have been inquiring about building luxury homes lately. So, we thought we would do a post about what we look for in a Luxury Home builder. There are so many companies out there who call themselves ‘custom home builders’, but really, anybody can say they can build your dream home. You might want to do a little homework before shelling out over a million dollars for someone to build the home that you are going to showcase for the rest of your life.

We’ve seen some amazing luxury homes in our day, and when we ask who the builders are, not once have they been anyone that would pop into your mind, or any large companies. They are most always small local companies based in either those cities that we are visiting, or located statewide.

The style that we like is more modern, which is much different than the traditional home that has a sloped roof, or the homes that look the same, no matter if they are large or small. We want something that sticks out in the crowd, and something that people will recognize, and say ‘That home was very special.’

Fortunately, we have seen a few homes like that in our day, and have had the opportunity to manage property that we were able to see some true luxury in.

We outlined what we look for in luxury when we travel here, but there are some different things we would do if we had a luxury home builder take over our project.

For one, we would have open floor plans in every single one of our projects because we want to be able to see through the house without having too many walls in the way. We have seen some custom homes that have not been very well laid out and have way too many walls, some simply because they are needed for structural support.

Another thing we would outline to a builder is that there has to be a certain custom touch to homes, or in other words, we would give a designer some freedom to put their touch on the property based on some of their past projects. We feel that when a luxury home builder goes above and beyond, that they will make sure they are acquiring materials that would not normally appear in your typical home that large scale builders would throw up in under two months.

That brings us to our next point, which is that any custom home project is going to have to take some time to make sure that the job is done right. Any time that we look at a project, we can tell if the specific attention to detail was given to a home based on the kitchen, bathrooms, and the fixtures that are added to any design project. If those are just thrown into a home without any thought that is given to it, a buyer is not going to be happy with a project.

During a luxury home building project, there has to be some semblance of communication between the buyer and the builder, which we think is the most important step of the process. If that is not looked after carefully on either side, then the project could be doomed from the start.

We have had good fortune to see some great projects completed in our day, so we want to make sure that you have the same good fortune!
