What should I ask my Miami home builder?

Miami New Construction Checklist

When you are choosing your Miami developer or Miami builder, develop a list of questions to ask before you go in. You need to know about what you want and what you are or aren't willing to live without.

  • Know your needs so you can choose the best home design?
  • What are the building codes in your area?
  • Who is the contact person for you project?
  • Are the sizes and shapes of rooms predetermined? What would work best?
  • What don't you like about your current home?
  • Learn about the home drawing and what means what? (Symbols for Windows, Doors etc.)
  • Are there any title encumbrances of the subdivision?
  • What are the home specifications? Who will provide them?
  • How do we work out disputes about completed projects and uncompleted projects?
  • When will the house be completed?
  • What kind of contracts do they require? Can you have your attorney review them?
  • What materials will be used in the home? How do I know if they are high quality?
  • Can I change things during the project, after completion?
  • Do I get to pick the paint color? Wood finishes? Molding?
  • Is yard and grounds landscaping included?
  • Can I come to the site while the home is being completed?
  • If I want something specific in my home and can get a good price, can I buy it? Who installs it?
