5 Reasons to Choose a Local Builder

Building your dream home can be an emotional process, and choosing the right team for the job may be one of the most important decisions you’ll make in the entire project. An experienced, professional builder can make all the difference when it comes to getting the task completed on time, within budget and as planned. Nobody wants to deal with building delays or hidden expenses, so you want to be sure you’ve got the best team to support you. This all comes down to whether to choose a local builder or a volume home builder.

While volume builders are generally supported with larger resources, at Hotondo Homes our builders have qualities that you can’t get from anyone else but a local builder. 

Here, we discuss 5 reasons why you will be better off with a local builder when it comes to building your dream home.


Volume home builders may build up to 1000 homes a year while local builders take on a few projects a year. This means that when you choose a local builder, you’ll end up with a hands-on experience that will include direct contact with the builder directly throughout the process. This one-on-one service ensures the build is tailored to your needs, and makes it easier to ask questions and receive updates on the progress.

Local knowledge of the area

Local builders work within a specific geographical area. Having this kind of knowledge provides them with a unique ability to really understand the region, including any challenges as well as the rules and regulations from local councils. Local builders understand and know how best to work with the terrain in your land and can advise you on the best home designs to suit your block.

Better communication

Choosing a local home builder means you can be more involved in the process. A part of this is having clear and open communication lines between your builder and their whole team. Never underestimate the power of a collaborative home build, which provides a strong relationship with the team – and peace of mind that your home is being taken care of. 

Quality over quantity

A local builder is more quality driven, as evidenced by the smaller number of homes they build each year. With such a strong focus on quality, local builders can work closely with their clients and engage local trades to work on your new home build, keeping your budget on track.

Support for your community

It really does pay to “buy local”. By choosing to work with a local builder, you’re keeping money and residents in the community. For example, local home builders don’t outsource jobs, meaning local trades will be working on your project. This produces a secondary effect, as the use of local trades will boost the local economy, and those tradespeople will also have a good understanding of building in that particular region.
