How to Build a Home in Cape Coral, FL


Building a home takes much more then a coat of paint. It takes time and preparation. Most of the choices should be made, even before the foundation gets poured. You might be asking what sort of things you should be thinking about with building a home in Cape Coral. Let’s take a look at some of the specifics. Just following one of these guidelines will help to avoid some very common mistakes.

1) Set the budget. I know this sounds more like a common sense thing. You’d be surprised how many clients never take the time to do this. Set your price limit and stick with it. If there are any extras, they need to be added in before you start.

2) Decide on the plot right away. It doesn’t matter if you want to build in Rural Cape Coral or on the beach. Decide on a plot and have it investigated. Look into the zoning issues. Look into any possible problems with the land. Have a pro come with you. Never do this on your own.

3) Get a team in place right away. Even if you know the basics, hire the best team possible. Some of your team should have an excavator, a land surveyor and an architect. These people will probably bring on board their own teams. Check them all out before you begin. You have to feel comfortable with who you bring on board. Even if a key player raves about someone on his or her team, have them checked out.

4) Pick a plan. Have it all planned out beforehand. Go over everything with the designer. When you do actually begin, there should be no miscommunication.

5) Work up a contract. I’m serious here. Before you sign on the line, go over everything. If something seems off, discuss it. The contract should be in place before you begin. If it’s not, then there should be no deal. This is for your protection, as well as yours.
