15 Questions to Ask When Selecting a Home Builder – By Jay McKenzie

Categories: Home Builder | Posted: July 8, 2015

Selecting the right builder is a key step in the journey that leads to your dream home.

Asking builders the 15 questions below will help you choose the right builder to create your new home— and give you confidence in your choice

These questions will also help you better understand key steps in the building process and the decisions you’ll make, in partnership with the builder, to bring your new home to life.

  1. How many years have you been in business? How many homes have you built?
  2. Are you licensed (where required) and insured?
  3. How do you compare yourself to other builders? What are the most important benefits of the homes you build?
  4. What type of warranty do you offer?
  5. Can you give me references from prior home buyers? Do you build model homes I can tour? If not, can you help me make an appointment to see a home you built for another customer?
  6. What are the major energy-saving features of homes you build?
  7. Do you build only from home plans you supply? Or can I provide my own set of plans?
  8. What standard features do your homes include? What options and upgrades can I select?
  9. Who will oversee the construction of my home? Who should I contact with any questions I may have?
  10. How and when can I make changes or upgrades before and during construction?
  11. How and when will the final price for my home be determined?
  12. How often (and when) will I have access to the home during the building process?
  13. How long will my home take to complete?
  14. Does the community have a Home Owners Association and/or an Architectural Review Committee? If so, may I get a copy of their rules and the amount of any fees?
  15. What’s your process for inspection at key points of construction, at final walk-through, and to address any matters that need to be corrected or finalized?

There may be other important questions you wish to ask, so feel free to add them. However, experts agree the list above is a great starting point to select the firm to build your new home.

Congratulations! You’ve embarked on an exciting journey that will lead to your dream home. As you progress through each stage —finding, buying, designing and building your new home— there are many great resources here at our Resource Center to assist you.

Konter Development Company Announces Development of Historic Piece of Property

May 13, 2015 – Konter Development Company recently announced plans to develop a historic piece of land located in the Bonna Bella area directly off of Laroche Avenue. Traditionally known as the German Country Club, the waterfront property was purchased by its previous owners in 1918, and has operated as a social gathering place for many renowned Savannah families over the last century.

Bluffside at Country Club Creek consists of over 20 acres of lush landscape with panoramic views of Country Club Creek which leads directly into the Herb River.  Konter Development Company plans to develop the site into a new residential neighborhood, which will entail 7 waterfront home sites, 1 marsh front home site, and 58 interior lots. With respect to the German Country Club’s commitment to family and community oriented activities, the neighborhood, which has been designated as Bluffside at Country Club Creek, will include multiple amenities including an community fishing pier, activity center, and community green and playground.

Konter Development Company has compiled a team of experts to ensure the development of the property pays homage to its history while adding a new market of housing for potential buyers in an ever growing area of Chatham County. The architectural design of homes within Bluffside at Country Club Creek will be similar to other residential projects the company has completed in neighborhoods such as Palmetto Row and Tabby Village, both located within Sandfly, adjacent to Isle of Hope. Wide front porches, authentic shutters, and craftsmen exterior details are just a few examples of the detailed craftsmanship that will be consistent components of each residence.

Harvey Gilbert of Gilbert & Ezelle Real Estate Services, who served as brokers for marketing the property, stated that “the seller’s are very pleased to have sold the property to a highly experienced developer and homebuilder of integrity such as Konter Development Company who will successfully execute a carefully prepared plan for the benefit of the property and surrounding neighborhood.”

With over 50 years of experience in the real estate and construction industry Jerry Konter feels this was an extremely rare opportunity for his company and his family, which includes three generations who currently work with Konter. “As a multi-generational Savannah family business we are excited to develop this unique and wonderful property, with an eye to its history and a vision for its legacy,” says Jerry Konter, President of Konter Development Company.

Construction will start within the next three months, and the seven waterfront lots located along Country Club Creek are now available for reservations through Konter Development Company. For additional information on Bluffside at Country Club Creek, please contact Mark Konter at 912-341-4865.

Holiday lighting safety tips

Categories: Uncategorized | Posted: November 29, 2011

Safety in your home is always important, and the Holiday time is no exception.

Many of us are decorating with electric lights for the holidays and the Electrical Safety Foundation International (ESFI) recently published these safety tips and links for additional information.  We want to encourage everyone to enjoy the holidays while keeping safe.

Electrical Safety Tips:

 

To ensure that your holiday season is safe from electrical hazards, follow these safety tips:

  • Before decorating, read and follow the manufacturers’ instructions for installation and maintenance of all decorative electrical products.
  • Indoors and out, use lights and other electrical decorations certified by a recognized independent testing laboratory, such as CSA, UL, or ETL.
  • Outdoors, use lights and other electrical decorations certified for outdoor use.
  • Carefully inspect each decoration before plugging into an outlet.
  • Cracked, frayed, loose or bare wires, and loose connections may cause a serious electrical shock or start a fire.  Replace damaged items.
  • Do not connect more than three light strings together.
  • Light strings with screw-in bulbs should have no more than 50 bulbs connected together.

Konter Quality Homes wishes you a safe and wonderful Holiday season.

Encouraging home sales report

Categories: Uncategorized | Posted: November 10, 2011

September produced an encouraging new home sales report as single family home sales rose 5.7%.

 

“Today’s report highlights the gradual improvement in housing market conditions that is becoming evident in certain pockets of the country, as consumers who can surmount very restrictive lending standards to qualify for a favorable mortgage rate seize on this opportunity to buy,” said Bob Nielsen, chairman of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) and a home builder from Reno, Nev. “The latest numbers also reveal that first-time buyers are driving the new-homes market right now, as evidenced by the volume of lower-priced, entry-level homes under contract. It’s worth noting that these consumers are very dependent upon federal policies and programs that support home ownership, such as the mortgage interest deduction and low-down payment mortgage options that have been threatened by recent government proposals.”

 

This is encouraging data when viewed along side the estimate that there were only 163,000 units for sale in September. Based on the current rate of new home sales this represents only a 6.2 month supply of new homes nationwide.

 

Konter Quality Homes is prepared to be the Savannah area’s continuing voice for quality and service in this continually improving housing market.
