As you choose your builder, ask all kinds of questions about the specifications of the proposal. These details will help you differentiate between quality custom components versus assembly line items. It is important to feel that your builder will work with you to determine your lifestyle needs and how these can be made to fit into your budget.
Cost Plus Pricing
Joel Andersen Homes uses a cost plus pricing method. The biggest advantage to working within this kind of system is that the client is able to obtain my pricing. Because of my long-term relationships, I am able to negotiate exceptional contract rates from my subcontractors and vendors. I pass these onto the client thereby allowing the client to get the best value for their project. Often times, these savings translate into the client being able to upgrade many options of their project because the costs are so reasonable. In the traditional scenario of building a custom home, many charges are inflated to include a profit for the builder. This is not the case with Andersen Homes. You know exactly what my costs are and what my profit is upfront. This openness creates an atmosphere of trust that is invaluable to my business. My clients are more than clients they are often neighbors and friends. It is important to have a relationship of honesty and trust.
This relationship extends to my subcontractors and vendors. I have a long history with both and I only work with those who have proven their expertise, craftsmanship and on-time completion. This allows me to ensure the quality of your new home. The subcontractors that work with us know we demand the best, they take no shortcuts on quality and are as committed to customer satisfaction as we are.
This allows us to give you, the client, top quality at the most competitive price. Discriminating home buyers will find that Andersen Homes offers more standard features. Joel works personally with each client through every stage of construction, from planning to final walk through. I don’t want to be the biggest builder, just one of the best.
We are proud to claim that a large portion of our business comes from the referrals of satisfied customers.
