A custom home is all about location, location, location. But once you’ve picked a spot, where do you go from there? We’ll help you out.

A custom home is all about location, location, location. But once you’ve picked a spot, where do you go from there? After deciding to build a custom home in Las Vegas, make sure you take the right steps, so your dream quickly turns into a reality.



While there are plenty of custom homes in Las Vegas for sale, why not build something all your own? When you build your dream home, you let your imagination take over. Once you’ve jotted down all your dream custom features and collected photos for reference, you’ll want to start organizing it all.

Follow these steps to get started building your dream home:

  • Decide on a budget. Once you know how much money you’re working with, you can start meeting with architects and contractors. Together, you’ll talk through your ideas and start figuring out what’s realistic.
  • Select the right people. A custom home takes a lot of teamwork. Pick people you can communicate with and who understands your vision. Once you’ve found someone you click with, you’ll want to tour their homes and check references.
  • Make some solid decisions. All the ideas you had before are a good starting point, but by the time you’ve hired an architect and a contractor, you’ll need to have narrowed down what you need, what you want, and what you can afford. More detailed plans in the beginning will cut out change later on (which can be expensive and time-consuming).
  • Set a timeline. Contractors will set up a bed and let you know how quickly they can get the work done. If you haven’t already, you can get your old house on the market and start packing up.
  • Keep communicating. Don’t be afraid to call your contractor to make sure things are going as planned. You can even drop by to check on things, it’s your home after all!
