For Sale By Owner

Avoid the middleman and sell your home yourself. By hiring a realtor, you’ll lose out on about 6% commission, which is a lot of money that you could be putting towards the home building process. Consider listing your home on websites like Zillow where there are many active buyers. With the many options out there for selling your home yourself, it’s a job that can be done quickly and easily.

Do Some Window Shopping

You may think you know what you want when thinking about the home building process, but chances are you haven’t seen enough of what’s out there to make a decision yet. Visit open houses and ask to check out model homes in newly developed areas so you can see what’s new (and eco friendly) before embarking on the journey.

Home Building on Sale

Chances are, you can find what you’re looking for online, and you can find it on sale too. Consider shopping for fixtures such as lighting and faucets online. There are many options and a lot of the time, you can find a bargain. If you’re ordering a good amount, shipping is usually free so it will save you both time and money.
