At Capstone Custom Homes, one of the most common questions we hear is “When should I talk to Capstone about building?” Understandably, people wonder if they need to have certain things “in order” before they talk to us. In reality, you can talk to us at any time — we even talk to people who are making plans for five years down the road. However, if you are planning to start building in just a few months, here are some things you should consider to get ready.

Land and Acreage

One of the first things you need to determine is where you will build your home. In fact, many people will buy their lot before they start planning out the house itself. While Capstone Custom Homes builds all over central and northern Ohio, prices can differ based on which county you decide to build in. The acreage of your lot can also help us recommend floor plans that would work well for your property.

Price Range

Know your budget. Having a price range in mind will go a long way in streamlining your selections process. By balancing your desires with what you can afford, you’ll be able to find a floor plan — and the customizations — that will be the right fit for your family.

Funding Approval

As part of setting your budget, few things are more important than figuring out how you will pay for your new home. At Capstone, we work with all types of purchase options, including many lenders and mortgage companies. Obtaining a pre-approval letter from a lender can be extremely helpful in determining just how much house you can afford.
