a. Custom VS Production:
1. Custom Builders – construct an originally, or uniquely designed home for a particular client in a desired location.
ü Because these homes are uniquely designed, most custom homebuilders will allow for more freedom to alter plans, and customize layouts with minimal or no cost to the client (before the actual build).
ü An architect or a professional home designer creates these original designs (in-house, or subcontracted).
2. Production Builders – construct a home picked from a selection of floor plans, which is built in a designated area/ development that accommodates a similar style of home.
