I do not have any information about Regency Home Builders but I can offer some advice about the new home construction process. Your first step is to obtain a realtor to help and guide you in negotiations. This is a very important part of new construction the realtor should be a FULL TIME AGENT. Interview at least 3 agents and ask specific questions about how many new home construction projects they have been involved with, different types of contracts such as cost plus, build for fee, set price. Ask if they know what is a construction perm loan? The agentâ€™s expertise in new construction should easily save you thousands of dollars during the process. Tell the agent you expect to visit the job site 12-15 times during the process of the build job and you expect them at all inspections, if they wavier donâ€™t use that agent. You need representation at your visits because questions may be asked of you and change orders will be created without representation you could lose thousands of dollars. Hope this helps!! Also build an Energy Star Home it will easily pay back the additional cost of insulation, better hvac equipment & windows in less than 3 years. Cost to add Energy Star is less than 3% of the total cost of construction.
