Agent- The first thing you need to do is find an experienced agent to help you with the buying & building process. Most importantly someone thats not affiliated with the builder in any way.

Qualified agents will advise you on how to structure your offer to the builder its provided you with invaluable information on upgrades and improvements are worth the money and which ones should be done after your home is complete.
Get everything in writing– If your considering building a home from start to finish get everything in writing.
You will also want to make sure that everyone is in agreement of a timeline and what the consequences are if the deadlines are not met.
Your agent should review and go over all paperwork with you.
Research your builder– Most builders are easy enough to research online however I would also speak with neighbors in the subdivision to find out what their experience has been. Many times your experience will vary from subdivision to subdivision even with the same builder based on the project manager overseeing the build.
Research your lender:
Most builders will provide their “preferred lender” however that does not necessarily mean you are getting a good deal. Always talk with at least 3 lender to ensure you are getting the best deal.

Builders pay the buyers agent to ensure a buyer also has representation.
