To build or to buy? While this can be an extremely personal decision, there is no doubt that building your own home has many advantages over buying a home. Besides the fact that you can customize every detail to your liking, there are additional logistical and financial reasons that lead buyers to prefer building.
- Spend less time searching for your dream home. Odds are, there aren’t any homes that are going to check off all the features you want in a dream home. If you’re dead set on certain features being present in your home, you’ll be better off designing a home from scratch, where you have the power to choose exactly what goes in it, and what features are more important than others. Additionally, you have control over the budget, and where it’s best allocated.
- Buying a home is an investment. That’s why it’s so important to ensure you’re investing in the right house for your family. When you build a custom home, you’re ensuring that your investment is exactly what you want it to be- nothing less, nothing more. You deserve a home that perfectly fits your family, budget, and design style.
- Building your home can actually save you more money in the long run! When buying an older home, you run the risk of systems breaking and wearing out quicker than they would in a new one. In a used home, things like plumbing, air conditioning, water heaters, and other appliances have often already seen their fair share of use. In a new build, you’re guaranteed to get the full life out of each and every feature.
- You’re in control of your timeline. When buying a used home, the house typically dictates your moving timeline. Sometimes, you’ll be rushed to purchase and move out of your current home. Other times, you’ll find yourself in a longer waiting period than expected. On the flip side, when building, you get an idea of your personal timeline at the very beginning of the process, and can plan your move accordingly. No surprises, and less stress!
