Selley Group New Home Builder Series – Insights into New Home Construction

Colorado Springs Realtor, Cherise Selley, and Custom New Home Builder, Brad Ausmus with Alliance Homes, LLC, discuss some of the idiosyncrasies about what it takes to build luxury custom homes Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Before diving into some of the questions about designs, floorplans, land and building fees, budgets and so forth, I found one particular comment within this video profoundly important when thinking about the construction of a new home.  Did you realize that there are between 60,000 to 90,000 pieces regarding what’s actually part of new home construction?  Let’s think about this for a second.  Hypothetically speaking, if your selected builder does everything 99% perfectly right about building your new home, then this means that there still could be 60 to 90 mistakes made to your new home construction?

This simply indicates the importance of finding the right builder for your next Colorado Springs Home, especially if this home is custom-built.  Please allow me to introduce Brad Ausmus of Alliance Builders, LLC. This man works miracles for creating the optimal spaces for living within his floorplan design.  A custom home builder for 41 years, Brad has seen it all throughout all of the real estate cycles and has successfully weathered all of the storms, only to grow more expertly upon his skill and craftsmanship regarding custom new home construction.What actually motivates Brad to continue his work as a custom homebuilder?  He explains that customizing the floorplan design connects the customer between the actual design and the budget prepared for such a project.  Making art out of floorplan design and offering this gift to a new homeowner brings unimaginable satisfaction.
