A basic guide on how to build your dream home
Where to start?
In this quick guide, we will go through what you need to know to build your dream home. We will also show you how our tools can help you in the process.
1. Make a plan
Building a home is a significant emotional and financial investment. Before jumping into the process of constructing your home, you should make a plan for what type of home you want. It may be better to think about your lifestyle and family situation rather than looking for a specific location and house type.
2. Finding a plot
Finding a plot can be a challenging process. It's important to consider location, zoning laws, and budget. Research the area, look for listings and consider working with a real estate agent for guidance. Be prepared for the process to take time and make sure to get a thorough inspection before making an offer on a plot.
Devolv makes it easy to search for plots. The search engine lists plots that can be booked from the municipality, plot profiles for sale, and plots that have been identified as suitable by our algorithm.
3. Buying the plot
Next, you will need to negotiate the price and terms of the sale with the seller. It is recommended to involve a real estate agent to ensure that the transaction is conducted legally.
It is also important to keep in mind that there are taxes and fees associated with buying land in Sweden, which should be considered when calculating the total cost of the purchase.
4. Find a contractor
Building a house can be a complex and stressful process, as it involves many moving parts and a significant financial investment. Some of the common sources of stress when building a house include:
Forget stress with turnkey homes
Turnkey homes are built and delivered as fully functional and ready-to-live-in units. The buyer pays a single price for the entire project, including the design, construction, and delivery of the house.
It's a convenient option for those who do not have the time or resources to manage the building process themselves. These homes are typically built using pre-designed plans, which the buyer can personalize by choosing materials, finishes, and other details.
This approach allows for a quicker and less stressful building experience as the buyer only needs to make decisions about the design. The final product is typically a high-quality home that is built to last and that meets all necessary building codes and standards.
Devolv lets you browse turnkey homes from manufactures and insert 3D-models of the houses in the map tool. If you have questions, you can contact sellers representatives directly on the platform.
