Why Work with a Local vs. National Homebuilder

Benefits to choosing a local home builder vs. a national company

If you’ve made the decision to purchase a new construction home, congratulations on the exciting adventure you are about to embark on. Now it’s time to choose which homebuilder you will trust with building your new home. Believe it or not, there are 434,674 home builders in the United States. That is indeed an overwhelming number, so let’s break it down into two groups for the sake of simplicity: local and national.

When it comes to choosing a home builder, there are advantages and benefits to choosing a local or boutique builder over a large national company. Here are a few reasons why:

Local Presence and Reputation:

A boutique builder is typically local, which means they have a reputation to uphold in the community. They want to make sure their homes are top quality because their livelihood depends on it. On the other hand, a production builder may not have the same commitment to the area because they build homes all over the country. They also have their pulse on what is going on in the immediate real estate market and can make price corrections as necessary. They are also more likely to partner with and incentivize local real estate agents to present their homes and communities to their clients. This creates a co-op that benefits everyone.

Attention to Detail:

Local builders typically have fewer homes under construction at any given time, which allows them to pay more attention to detail. They are also more likely to use higher-quality materials and craftsmanship since they are not mass-producing homes. Many larger builders construct homes in large, master-planned communities, which can result in a “cookie cutter” feel.

More Personalized Service:

When you work with a boutique builder, you can expect more personalized service. They will get to know you and your family, and they will work with you every step of the way to ensure that your new home is just what you envisioned. Yes, national companies will have local sales people but their customer service may not be quite as individualized. A local builder will more likely go out of their way to ensure you are thrilled with the end product. 

These are just a few of the many reasons why you should consider working with a boutique builder if you are looking for a new construction home. Every homebuyer is different with unique wants and needs, so looking at all the angles is important.
