What Custom Builder Magazines Look For

Have you ever flipped through the pages of a custom builder magazine and thought, “Wow, those homes are amazing!” Even if you haven’t picked up a magazine since the last time you were at the dentist’s office, you’ve probably seen programs on T.V. following custom builders and the amazing homes they construct or renovate. Whether it’s “Builder Magazine’s Top 100 Green Homes” or HGTV’s “17 Perfect Vacation Villas,” they’re sure to leave you spellbound. Arched entryways and expansive gardens might make you salivate over the idea of building a turn-of-the-century French-style maison. Custom builder magazines and TV programs give you the crème de la crème of luxury homes.

In direct contrast, you’ve probably also had personal experience with glorious flops. Undoubtedly you know someone or at least saw a 60 Minutes exposé on a custom builder either delivering a sub-par product or walking out and disappearing altogether. It’s this kind of common occurrence that can instill a deep mistrust of home building magazines, custom builders, and people in general.

It doesn’t have to be that bad. In fact, a great way to vett a prospective luxury home builder is to follow the same guidelines that custom builder magazines use to determine who gets showcased in the magazine and who gets sentenced to anonymity.

One Custom Builder Magazine’s Guidelines

Southern Living, a directory/magazine for custom home builders in the South of the U.S.A., states that it “carefully selects custom home builders that transcend the pages of the magazine into a dream home. Members are chosen for their extensive experience and knowledge, reputation in the marketplace, and focus on the discriminating customer who is looking to build a custom home.”

If you want a custom home builder with all of the following:

  • Extensive Experience
  • Knowledge
  • Reputation
  • Customer-Focused
