When is the best time to start a home?

The best time to start a home is in the Spring to late Summer.  Once daylight savings time comes, in general, most subcontractors do not work as long of hours.  The “rainy season” can also become a factor.  As long as the house is dried in before this time,  the delays are minimal with the exception of finished concrete and landscaping.  Finished concrete costs more in the winter months as calcium and other quick drying ingredients have to be added in the concrete.  Typically if a home is started in late October or during the winter months, the builder will experience delays due to weather and it will take longer for the home to be built…which results in the customer having to pay interest for a longer period of time.
