The “Owner Builder” Secret
Most people use a general contractor to build their home. It usually seems like the easy, “safe” option… But in reality, it’s not. Just talk to anyone about their experience working with a general contractor. Nine times out of ten, people are let down by their home builder. They end up with a home that doesn’t have the look they wanted, is over budget and was completed behind schedule.
There is an alternative to using a general contractor. And… Surprisingly it doesn’t take extensive education, degrees or construction experience. It’s available to anyone. A way to guarantee you get exactly the home you want… and save thousands in the process.
Sound too good to be true? It’s not. We’ve done it for years.
The term that has been coined is the “Owner Builder” — which basically means being your own general contractor. At first this might sound like a huge challenge. You probably don’t know anything about architecture or design. Maybe you’ve never even picked up a hammer before. None of this matters. You really don’t need to know any of this.How can that possibly be?
To understand how you could become an “Owner Builder” yourself, you must first understand what a general contractor actually does. They manage, oversee and inspect. That’s it. A general contractor does not do the actual work, they sub-contract ALL the tasks to other companies. The goal of a general contractor is to make sure that people show up and their work meets expectations. And… Who is better to know your expectations than yourself!
Even if you hired the best general contractor in the world, they will never fully understand what you want.
When we started out building our first personal home, we struggled through the process. Learning the ropes was hard. There was nobody to show us the way. Builders were tight lipped about how the process worked. We had to “learn on the job.” Now, it’s been over 30 years since our first build. We’ve built over 8 personal homes along with more than 800 homes for other people. Needless to say, we know the building process better than anyone.
Now, for the first time, we’re sharing our knowledge. This is your opportunity to jumpstart your path to joining the exclusive club of “Owner Builders.” It’s your best path to getting the home of your dreams and save thousands in the process. On a $400,000 home, you could easily save $40,000 by being your own general contractor.
