When building a home there are three standard meetings that the builder will ask you to attend after you have signed a contract.
The first meeting is called the “Pre-Construction Meeting.” Depending upon the builder, this meeting may take place before the ground is ever broken, after the foundation is poured, or somewhere in the middle.
The pre-construction meeting will typically take place with your on site construction manager.
This meeting has three specific goals…
A. For the builder to explain their expectations to the buyer. (For example, what he may be willing to modify during construction and what he is not now that the contract is ratified).
B. To review in detail the actual land and blue print of the home.
C. The time line of construction.
Depending upon the builder’s policies, making changes during this phase of construction can be frowned upon. However, if you clearly choose a different feature at the time of contract than what is being delivered, this is the meeting to make that clear. Therefore, bring with you the paperwork that was signed when you purchased your home!
Overall, this should be a positive experience for you!
