What do new home builders do?


For builders who also act as developers, the job starts well before the first nail is driven. They perform Des Peres, MO market research to determine whether the prospective homesites make sense in the Des Peres, MO market, as well as survey the land on which the house will be built to make sure it is suitable for construction. They also obtain the necessary permits.
