When building a home from the ground up, there are a lot of things to consider. The first step is to select a contractor, which requires a lot of trust when dealing with your dream home. It is important to choose someone who has demonstrated ability in building a quality home. This might start with getting recommendations from people you trust — including friends and family — and setting up a time to meet in person. In that initial meeting, consider asking the contractor a few questions, such as whether they take on projects your
size, if they have a list of previous clients, how many projects they work on at one time, how long they have worked with their subcontractor and how they finance a project. After meeting, reflect on the level of communication from the contractor being considered, as that is one of the most important factors when making your choice. That’s why Rave Homes Missouri focuses on building strong relationships with customers to ensure their dream home becomes a reality.

After working with Rave Homes Missouri for 12 years, Blake Rave says his job continues to keep him on his toes. “Every day is a new challenge and opportunity to learn, and that’s why I love it so much,” Rave says. The company was started by Rave’s father and expanded into the Columbia area a little more than five years ago. “Columbia has been the perfect place for our company to expand to new heights,” Rave says, noting that the company is as deeply rooted in family ideals and strong values as it was when it began 35 years ago. “With a society filled with large corporations, there is something truly special about a business you can trust.” Since starting more than three decades ago, Rave Homes has built homes, apartment buildings, commercial spaces, dormitories and assisted living facilities, as well as developed land. Now, Rave Homes wants to be a part of your next building adventure.
