The Blueprint Review For Your Cincinnati New Construction Home

blueprintYou've picked out the floor plan.

You've picked the lot.

You've picked out how you want your home to appear inside and out after selecting flooring, cabinets, counters, colors and much, much more.

So what's next?  The key to making sure your home is built as you planned!  The step involves a blueprint review and will typically happen 4-6 weeks after your initial purchase contract is written.

The builder will have a package of blueprints that show:

  • Exterior views from every side
  • Floorplans floor by floor (main, basement, etc.)
  • Electrical schematics (outlets, switches, etc.)
  • Window plans
  • Kitchen layout to include types of cabinets and locations
  • Plat plan to show position of home on the lot

What you can expect is a thorough review, page by page with the builder's rep and you as the buyer (and me as your buyer's agent if you give me notice of the when/where of the meeting so I can reserve the time).

This is the time to finalize some placements (lights, switches, outlets and more) and to make sure the plans reflect EXACTLY what you're paying for is what is going to be built.

It's not a quick review, typically lasting 1-2 hours and the builder will ask you to sign off every page that is reviewed to document that you agreed with the plans as presented.  If there are changes needed, NOW is the time to identify them and get the plans corrected.

And once this step is done, next up will be the earthmoving on your lot, and not too many months later your brand new home! 

Need help guiding you through the new construction home process?  We're here to help and the builder already has our fee included in their overhead so it doesn't cost you extra to have us help you!  Just give us a call at 513-520-5305 or email Liz@LizSpear.com!
