Frequently asked questions & answers

What is the difference between Personal & Professional Edition?

Builder Blueprint personal edition helps individuals who are looking to build a home for themselves, whereas Builder Blueprint Professional Edition is geared towards people who are looking to start a business building homes.

Builder Blueprint Professional Edition offers an extended lesson plan that digs into key concepts to running a home building business.This includes financing, market research, contacts, legal requirements, accounting, marketing and customer service. You will get a proven step-by-step blueprint you can follow to begin earning income by building homes on either a part-time or full-time basis.

How much money will I need to invest?

We recommend that the first home you build is for yourself. This allows you to use a traditional mortgage to finance your first build as you learn the process for yourself. Building a home for youself allows you to learn the ropes in the best possible way and be able to demonstrate to clients that you are prepared to take on their projects. Once you have completed your first build, you can use it as both a showcase home as needed then sell it for a profit. In most cases you can make at least 10-15% by building personal spec homes. It’s a learning process that pays, and you get the benefit of living in a new home!

When you are confident and ready to start expanding your business, your clients will secure construction loans which minimizes the amount of financing you will need. By properly structuring your business you can become a builder with minimal capital required.

What construction experience do I need to start this business?

To start a business building homes you don’t need any previous experience or knowledge of construction. Management, communication and organizational skills are the only critical skills to be a successful builder. We provide all the necessary tools to keep you organized and will equip you to work with your subcontractors and suppliers to successfully build homes.

How much time will I need to devote to building my first home?

We recommend spending 8 hours a week. There is approximately 1 hour of video content per week. Consider this your hobby for next 8-12 months.One of the founders of Builder Blueprint started building homes on the side while working as a vice president of a manufacturing company.He was able to easily build a few homes on the side for his first few years in building. When his side business of building homes had grown to eight home starts in one year he knew it was time to go full time into building.

How much money can I make on my first build?

You could make up to 25%, while most people will make around 10-15% percent.Where do the savings come from? General contractors will generally charge at least 10% and it is common to have an additional 6-7% real estate fee. Even a conservative estimate of 10% profit on a $400,000 home would result in a profit of $40,000. No matter how you look at it, you can start making good money with your first few houses.

Why should I trust your building process?

We have built over 800 homes ranging from 1200 to 8,000 square feet in size and from $200,000 – $2,000,000 in price. After building homes for over 30 years we have perfected a building process that yields homes that are superior in quality and timeless in style. And, we are still building homes today.

How long does it take to build a home?

The time it takes to build a home will depend on a multitude of factors including the size of home, features included, weather conditions, and availability of subcontractors in your area. In our region homes are typically completed in 6-8 months.

Where can I build my new home? Which states and countries?

We build in the Midwest of the United State but all of the techniques in the program apply generally to new home construction regardless of where you are building.There may be unique requirements associated with your specific lot or local building codes.
