Unfortunately, you will never know if you made a mistake untill it is too late. Main Idaho Real Estate Insights

Many people think all builders are relatively the same. I mean, I think we know they are different, but when we hire one we have the same expectations from a low bidder and the most expensive.

And now it is the final hour. The building process is almost complete. You can see your home vs envisioning it from the design stage.

BUT.. now you are noticing those little things. You can see the nail heads in the drywall? Some things look just slightly off? The hardware is the right color but feels cheap?

And of course when you need the builder, they are not available. Response time is slow and your frustation is growing.

This is just a reminder that professionals cost more. If you expect the low bidder to do the same job as the highest bid, your expectations are out of wack. The best in the business charge the highest rates in any industry. That is not to say you cannot take the low bids. Sometimes it is not in your budget to get the best. Just remember, it was your choice to take the low bid instead of lowering the square footage to save money. You can also wait a year or two to get what you want.

Normally, people get what they paid for. This is why we encourage people to look closely at the builder and their budgets before getting started. You do not have to have a big budget to get quality.
