A builder who’s been in the field for 14 years says the smartest choice you can make building a home has nothing to do with money or location

If you’re planning — or considering — building a home, you’re probably asking yourself two questions: “Where?” and “How much?”

But Marnie Oursler, star of “Big Beach Builds,” says the most important question you should ask is: with whom?

Oursler, the founder of Marnie Homes, a custom building company in Bethany Beach, Delaware, says the builder you choose to work with will make all the difference.

“It’s a relationship for a solid year when you’re building a home, so you want someone you click with, someone you feel comfortable around,” she told Business Insider. “You should be able to ask any type of question. It’s your home, your money, so making sure the person you choose, you trust them to spend it wisely and you’re comfortable with how your dollars are being spent. You shouldn’t feel intimidated or afraid to ask questions.”

Oursler, who has been building and renovating homes since 2003, also explained that having a builder you trust can facilitate the process. There are myriad small decisions for the homeowner to make, and if you trust your builder, you can defer to their choices, or at least get their input.
