do i tell them my budget
The builders in my area also design custom homes. We want a custom home built, but we also want whoever can build for the cheapest amount. I feel like the builder (since he's also designing the home) needs to know the budget right?
Our budget is 350k MAX. We've been quoted 115-125/sf in central texas (depending on the builder we talk to), AFTER telling them our budget.
How do I go about this? Should I meet with other builders and tell them I want X amount of square feet and ask what the budget would be for that? OR do i tell them my budget and ask what the general price is per sf? Do I do this over the phone or meet in person
