“People tend to be far too deferential when outlining what they have in mind when it comes to a custom home,” says Arturo Alvarez Demalde. “They may say exactly what they want when they first meet with the builder, but are then easily convinced to take a different approach by a builder who is looking to make the project easier and more cost-effective. This only benefits the builder and not the person who is spending six or seven figures on a custom homethat they intend to make their residence for the next several decades.”
Randi Glazer would likely tend to agree on this particular subject. Homebuyers need support while buying a custom home, which means that they should be reminded that they are spending a lot of money to build the home of their dreams. During this process, the homebuyer should be assertive and remember that it is not their responsibility to be accommodating to a builder. The homebuyer can always consult other builders willing to design a truly custom home, or they can stand firm that a custom home should be custom in the truest sense of the word.
