How to choose a home builder in Tallahassee

skyline

Your first step in choosing a custom home builder in Tallahassee is deciding what kind of home you want. By identifying your home design style ahead of time, you can pick a custom home builder, floor plan and location to match.

Reputable custom home developers in Tallahassee have many things in common, such as having:

  • Relevant experience
  • Satisfied references
  • Appropriate licenses

Applicable licenses in Florida include either a registered or certified license as a building, residential or general contractor. Verify a custom home builder’s licenses are up to date with Florida’s Department of Business & Professional Regulation.

Other criteria to help narrow your list of construction companies in Tallahassee are:

  • Price
  • Warranties offered
  • Energy- and water-efficiency ratings
  • Customization options

Questions to ask a home builder

Here are some questions you can ask custom home builders in Tallahassee to evaluate if they're the right choice for you:

  • Is your company licensed and insured?
  • Do you have a list of past home buyers I can contact?
  • Can I tour some model homes or schedule to see another customer's residence?
  • Do I have the option of supplying my own floor plan?
  • Which features come standard and which ones are upgrades?
  • How long will the process take?
  • How will you determine my home’s final price?

How much does it cost to build a home in Tallahassee?

New housing developments abound in Tallahassee, including near Hidden Valley and across from the Bannerman Crossing Shopping Center.

The cost to build a custom home in Tallahassee averages between $244,000 and $344,000. This means custom home builders in Tallahassee charge about $100 to $400 per square foot.

Going with a home developer’s floor plans instead of a custom design saves you up to 15% if you need to make some room in your budget. Less expensive modular and prefabricated homes are 10% to 20% less than custom home plans as well.

No matter what type of home you choose, your quality of materials, chosen appliances and degree of customization also impact final construction costs. Keep in mind that customization and special requests extend your project timeframe as well.
