Making the decision between buying a home and building a custom one can seem easy at first. When you really get down to it, though, you’ll see that there’s more to it than just picking one over the other. Factors that may affect your decision include location and budget.
In the case of custom homes, the decision often comes down to how much you can afford. However, financing a home is often more challenging and expensive.
There are certain advantages to building a custom home. Before making your decision, consider these benefits:
Build It According to Your Needs and Taste
You can spend a lot of time looking at resale homes to find the right combination of components that would satisfy your taste or suit your needs. When you ask a design build expert to create what you want in a custom home, you can be sure to get what you want in terms of style and the facilities that your family needs.
You don’t have to settle for a dated floor plan. A custom home allows you to make a floor plan that’s both modern and as functional as you need it to be. You can get an open floor layout or a higher ceiling. If you want a spa next to the master bedroom, just tell your builder to incorporate it into the design. With a custom home, you decide what to do with just about everything. It will match your personality.
No Hidden Problems
A resale home may look fantastic on the surface, but what if a few months down the road, something goes wrong? You didn’t know there was a termite colony close to your house, the water heater starts conking out (expensive problem), the air conditioning is reaching the end of its lifespan, etc. To make matters worse, you might not have a warranty for some of those things.
With a custom home, everything is new. You can also choose the types of equipment and appliances that are both useful and energy-efficient. As your new home is covered by a warranty, you can rest easy knowing whatever breaks, as long as it’s covered by your policy, you won’t have to shoulder the cost of repair or replacement.
Find Good Deals
Your contractor can help you find preferred lenders to lighten the financial burden. It’s often easier to work with lenders if you’re building a home from the ground up as opposed to financing a resale home that might even be overpriced.
