How to Find a Custom Home Builder

Are you in the market for a custom home in Northern Virginia? If so, how do you find the right custom home builder for the job? Use these four tips to narrow your selection and help you choose the right company to deliver your dream home:

1. Review Testimonials

A company is not worth pursuing if past customers have failed to be satisfied. Testimonials help put your mind at ease when you make your decision to work with one particular custom home builder.

At Sekas Homes, our clients continually praise our hard work, attention to detail, and ability to turn a vision into reality. Read what our clients have to say and decide for yourself if their positive experiences with us are what you’re looking for in a custom home builder.

2. Tour Model Homes

A great way to tell if you like the work of a custom home builder is to visit model homes. Walk the halls, examine the architectural details, and decide if you can picture yourself living in a home like this.

Sekas Homes has virtual tours and floor plans up on our website, but it’s also worthwhile to see properties in person. Check out our list of upcoming open houses so you can tour custom homes for sale in Northern Virginia. Whether you end up buying a home that’s already been constructed or you decide to work from the ground up, viewing homes in person is a great way to get a feel for the quality and precision Sekas Homes puts into every custom build.

If you want to schedule a tour of one of our beautiful model homes, call us at 703-594-7449.

3. Consider their Awards

When custom home builders exceed expectations, the industry responds by delivering awards. These awards are held with honor by the recipient and help customers know who they can trust for the job.

Sekas Homes is a multi-award-winning custom home builder.  A few of the awards we have proudly earned include:

  • Winner of the Best of Houzz Service Award for Customer Satisfaction in 2014
  • Winner of the NVBIA Custom Home Builder of the Year in 2013
  • Winner of the Gala Award of Merit, Design & Architecture, “The Newbury,” in 2011
  • Winner of the Monument Award, One-of-a-Kind Custom Home, “The Yorkshire,” in 2005
  • Runner Up for the Single-Family Custom Home, “The Nottingham,” in 2003
  • Winner of the Monument Award, Customized Single-Family Homes, “The Covington,” in 2002

4. Consider the Number of Years in Business

It’s unwise to settle for a custom home builder with very little experience. You don’t want to be a guinea pig for the new kid on the block. Instead, you want to work with a builder that has proven its reliability in delivering luxury homes that satisfy the customer every time.

That’s the reputation we have built for ourselves here at Sekas Homes. Back in 1987, we built our first home on an individual site. That was over 25 years ago, and since then, we have grown into a full-service, custom home builder specializing in quality, high-end construction.

If these are the characteristics you want from your home builder, contact us online or by phone at 703-594-7449 to schedule a consultation today.
