Find a builder
Once you settle on getting a home construction loan or using your home equity to build a new home, there are several ways to find a quality home builder in your area:
- Contact your local chapter of the National Association of Home Builders.
- Get referrals from friends and family and from real estate agents who specialize in new home construction.
Check credentials before hiring
Hiring a builder is like hiring any other type of professional. Consider the following when interviewing builders for your project.
Does the builder:
- Have proven experience in building the type of residence you want?
- Meet state licensure and insurance requirements?
- Have a solid reputation in the community, including a good rating with the Better Business Bureau and excellent references from past clients, suppliers and local banks?
- Have a permanent business address?
Is the builder:

Contact the state or county to verify there is no history of legal proceedings against the builder and that no legal proceedings are pending.
