Accounting Methods & Bidding
We offer one of the most detailed and simple to follow accounting methods for managing your home project in the business. From the start of the bidding phase throughout the construction phase our accounting methods keep you and your financial institution up to date and on top. We open a separate bank account with your local lending institution and grant you access so you can watch over all monies moving in our account only for your home. We provide detailed Proprietary Documentation on a weekly basis emailed or faxed to you and your bank. Signature Homes will provide you with Bank Officer references as to how meticulous our methods are.
The bidding phase will require a full set of plans including elevations, plot plan, and detailed specs. Wade will meticulously guide you through the DETAIL SPEC phase to insure nothing is over looked or left out of the estimate. This will require several meetings reviewing your portfolio of pictures, magazine articles, web sites, books, or any number of ideas you have acquired in your journey to put together you future home. Nothing is to much when it comes to the amount of information needed to prepare an Accurate Estimate. Our estimate is extremely detailed and over 150 line items, nothing will be overlooked. Signature Homes does not charge any fee’s for this.
If you are handed a estimate with less than 8 Hours of face time and less than 3 meetings with all parties involved in the home to include a site visit, as well as time to actually select many KEY items in the home, (Not Allowances which are all inclusive), you WILL NOT RECIEVE A QUALITY ESTIMATE!!!
Spend the time during these meetings or you will pay with dollars later!! If you have read this then it should not come to you as a surprise later. Get more than 1 estimate and demand copies of all suppliers and subcontractor bids supplied to the builder for your house. You may find they may not exist, or do not match your earlier requested specifications. Communication and clarification is paramount.
If anyone quotes you a per square foot price before any of the above occurs, RUN. Every home even those built identical back to back will not have the same exact cost results, much less two completely different homes. The cost per square foot is the number you arrive at only after the time and detail is spent in preparing the estimate! After 28 years I am never surprised to hear the absurd numbers thrown around with little to no due diligence preformed to actually find out what the customer truly wants or expects in their home.
Quality Custom homes costing from $300,000.00 to over $4,000,000.00 range from $98.00 to $350.00 per square foot and up. That’s a large range and the only way to get a tight estimate is putting in the time.
