St. Paul, MN, United States, 2005/06/23 - The Allen Mortgage and Real Estate Group is working in conjunction with MW Johnson to Offer New Home Construction Boot Camp Seminars designed to ease the frustration of building for the first time.
As home building becomes more complicated and expensive, more and more first time home builders are looking for educational instruction from many sources including parents, online venues and home building professionals.
“Witnessing the growing number of those building for the first time, who are also first time homebuyers, has been amazing to us,” said Cindy Allen, mortgage broker, Allen Mortgage and Real Estate Group. “We began to realize that there is a clear need for home building education. This is why we are working in conjunction with MW Johnson Construction to offer the New Home Construction Boot Camp seminar.”
The New Home Construction Boot Camp seminar offers home buying tips such as what type of property tax benefits are offered to new builders, insight into custom design, how to understand the differences between warranties, what types of new building materials are trends and which are here to stay.
“What many new home builders do not realize is that they can accumulate equity during the building process,” said Melissa Johnson, New Home Consultant, MW Johnson Construction. “For this reason, we educate and offer examples during the boot camp about how seminar attendees can build equity for themselves.”
The New Home Construction Boot Camp seminar also offers answers to basic building information questions including:
• What qualities and credentials should I look for when choosing a builder?
• How should cost overruns be estimated?
• Should I believe the builder’s construction timeline?
• Does it cost more to build in the winter?
• What types of permits are necessary?
• What is the most effective way to communicate with a Job Superintendent?
Seminar attendees are raving about how the New Home Construction Boot Camp seminar has taught them to effectively build a new home.
“I learned that you don’t have to already own a home to be able to build a new one,” said Hildah Makori, New Home Construction Boot Camp attendee. “A first time homebuyer can afford to have one built too.”
“The Construction schedule sheet that explained the different phases of the construction process and how long each phase would take, was a very big help,” said Joshua Peterson, New Home Construction Boot Camp attendee.
