Many Idaho Builders are Credible but not all are INCREDIBLE!

Main Idaho Real Estate Insights

There are many builders entering the market now, over 200, but they are not all alike and don't actually have to pass a test to prove they can build a quality home.

Incredible Boise BuildersYou can imagine the range of builders out there. There are the legends and nice new 'green' builders and you have to decide which one will build your home or that you will purchase from?

Builders can prove that they are credible, as most have been in the industry and decided to become a builder. Whether they were drywall or framing contractors or grew up in the industry, it is common for people to know something about building a home. NOTE: there is a big difference from being an employee to actually running a company and being responsible for the final product. Most people would not jump into something that costs tens of thousands if not hundreds of thousands of dollars to build, nor woudl banks lend money to someone who did not know what they were doing.

There is also a big difference between being 'credible' and 'incredible.' Just because someone was a drafting designer for years does not make them a builder. Also, just because someone has has built several does not mean they are a custom home builder or that they qualified to build a million dollar home.

This is not mean to be a negative post but if you are getting ready to spend several hundred thousand dollars, you should realize the difference between builders and understand exactly what they are capable of. While, every builder deserves a chance, be realistic. Don't get sucked up by the song and dance, do your due diligence.
