Building in the South-West from Paris does not represent a major difficulty. The main difficulty remains the purchase between the place of residence and the place of construction. " It is not easy to be 700 km from your project. Above all, you have to have confidence in your manufacturer and your interlocutors.

Finally, building at a distance is much more comfortable. At Sic houses, the builder moves home to develop your project. " When you live in the Oise and at 19 p.m. or 20 p.m., you have a sales representative from Toulouse who comes to see you for a project that will be done in the South-West, it's appreciable », points out José Dias.

                  Estimate the cost of the new house

« When for his first date, we cover all the important points, from the style of the house to the number of rooms, including the heating system and the various equipment in the house. “, points out the regional director. Then comes the land aspect, its location, its size, the desired amenities (public transport, access to healthcare, local shops). The objective is to define whether the project corresponds to the planned budget. " The goal is to leave this meeting with solutions. Then it's the terrain that triggers everything », Analyzes José Dias.

                  Defining construction deadlines for your new home

At the end of this first meeting, everything can go very quickly. It is therefore necessary to clearly define when the project can be envisaged, if there are any obstacles in terms of single-family home financing in particular (sale of an apartment, need for a bridging loan, etc.). " We help them to project themselves concretely into what such a project entails. If people aren't ready to commit yet, there's no need to tell them about land for sale today, because everything goes very quickly. Finding the land suitable for a project generally takes from 15 days to 1 month. “, specifies the regional director.

                  Find a builder with a wide choice of land

Field research is the logical continuation of the first meeting. " We meet them at home, they tell us what they are looking for. We put everything to find land quickly. It often happens that I leave this first meeting having fixed the second on the spot to go and see the pitches”. This is indeed the strength of a manufacturer well established in the region.

                  Field visits on site or remotely

                           See adapted courts on site

To avoid unnecessary travel, the builder groups together all site visits and important procedures over a limited period of time. If necessary, he picks up customers at the train station or airport and shows them the selected sites and various elements that can help them make their choice, such as visits to construction sites in progress. " I always give them names of people who have done a project with us and me in particular. I try to be really transparent “says José Dias.

                           Visit your land remotely

Today, however, the means modern computing allow decisions to be made remotely. Indeed, good land is highly sought after and they sell out very quickly. It is therefore necessary to know how to decide quickly. " When an opportunity arises and a client can't come down on time, we can send them the location of the land on Google maps. This virtual visit accompanied by videoconference in situ then allows him to see the terrain as well as his environment ».
