For many, the idea of building a custom home from scratch can be a daunting possibility. There are so many things to consider and so much time that must go into it. While most will choose a move-in ready home or one that just requires a few updates, the brave will choose a home that they can customize just for them. Luckily, that bravery pays off when it comes to the abundance of benefits a custom home provides in the long run.
5 Reasons to Choose A Custom Home
Choosing the custom home route is a big decision, and one that will require a lot of planning and preparation to see through successfully. Talk with your design-build team about any concerns you may have and to walk you through the building process. Believe it or not, but it may seem way more simple than you may have thought. Either way, there are so many benefits to look forward to! If you need some motivation, here are our top 5 Reasons to Choose a Custom Home.
1. Custom Everything
What’s the most obvious reason to choose a custom home? You get to choose absolutely EVERYTHING that goes into it. While this may seem like a “well, duh” moment, it is a crucial benefit for the planning of your future.
The first thing you’ll need make decisions on is the floorplan of your home. Are you planning on expanding your family and having lots of guests? Or do you need a designated office or teen space? Whatever your needs are, a custom home allows you to have all the rooms you want, exactly where you want them.
Eventually, you will also have to start the fun process of selecting the finishes and materials required to furnish your home. You will get to choose flooring, cabinets, countertops, tech gadgets, and so much more to fit your exact specifications and style.
2. Save Money On Utilities In Your Custom Home
While a custom home may seem like a huge investment now, it will certainly pay off in the future. One of the ways it can do this is by lowering your utility bills. Like we mentioned before, you have the opportunity to choose everything. So when it comes to the design of your home, consider investing in large windows to reduce the need for artificial light and heating, energy-efficient appliances, and water-saving plumbing fixtures. Be sure to talk with your experienced design-build team about any other sustainability features that they may recommend when it comes to lowering your utility usage.
3. Lower Maintenance Costs
When you decide to purchase an existing home, you really are taking a gamble on what problems may lie beneath the surface. Even with a prior home inspection.
Luckily, with a custom home, everything is new. That means that the majority of your furnishings, appliances and building materials will come straight from the manufacturers with warranties in hand.
The maintenance repairs needed with new materials will be less frequent, and anything that does need to be replaced can usually be done at little or no cost.
4. The Perfect Location
Likely, many of the homes in your desired location are already spoken for. Or, they are going for a price that is far beyond your means. With a custom home, you can have the home of your dreams in the location of your dreams. Whether you already have land or plan on purchasing a plot in the near future, a custom home provides an opportunity to live close to work or your desired school district, at a price you can afford.
5. Have Confidence With The Builder Of Your Choice
Custom home building is all about decision making and choices, so you need an experienced and trustworthy home builder to help you make the right choices for you and your family.
Given that you have the ability to choose a home builder that you trust, you can be confident that your home will stand the test of time with the best craftsmanship and materials there is to offer. If you ever do plan to resell, your home will maintain and exceed its initial value in years to come.
