THE TEN MOST COMMON REASONS TO BUILD A CUSTOM HOME
1) A HOME THAT IS FUTURE-PROOF
Future-proofing can mean a variety of topics, but we’re referring particularly to family planning here. One of the most common reasons people are forced to relocate, sell their current home, and purchase a new one is to make room for their growing family.
A custom home enables you to create a living area that meets your current demands while also anticipating future changes.
2) MONTHLY ENERGY BILLS REDUCED
While purchasing an existing home may be advantageous for some, renovating older homes with contemporary, energy-efficient fixtures can quickly become prohibitively expensive.
While a new home buyer should always anticipate energy-efficient fixtures, with a custom construction, there is an even greater chance to incorporate energy efficiency and significantly reduce monthly energy expenditures.
3) ADDITIONAL FLEXIBLE SPACE FOR FAMILY LIFE
The majority of younger families anticipate open, well-lit flex spaces that seamlessly integrate cooking, dining, and rest. The layout of a custom house enables you to create a more inclusive family setting while still keeping privacy in key areas.
4) A FLOOR PLAN THAT IS PERFECT FOR YOUR STYLE
The ability to entertain visitors comfortably may have a significant impact on a homeowner’s quality of life, and designing a custom home provides the ideal opportunity to showcase your hosting abilities. Construct a custom patio to complement a barbeque pit or an in-ground pool. Convert a conventional living room into a great room or construct a kitchen large enough to cook for the entire extended family comfortably.
5) EXPRESSION OF SELF IN THE DETAILS
The opportunity to choose your own doorknobs, light fixtures, and kitchen appliances? Custom homes are an authentic manifestation of the owners’ personalities. This is your opportunity to build a unified living environment that is entirely unique to you.
6) UP-TO-DATE TECHNOLOGY INTEGRATED
Along with open floor layouts, integrated home electronics is one of the most rapidly evolving facets of modern home design. From the start, if you’re designing a custom house, multi-room audio systems, smart appliances, and home automation are all options.
7) BUILT IN THE LOCATION OF YOUR CHOICE
Before you consider fantastic room ideas or roofing materials, you have the option of deciding where to construct — and that gives you a lot of control.
If you’re considering starting a family, you have the option of building in the appropriate school districts or being close to family and friends.
Additionally, by working with the proper home builder, you can build directly into your lot’s natural terrain. Anyone up for a walkout basement?
8) REDUCED MAINTENANCE FEES
Purchasing an older house can feel risky, particularly when it comes to unforeseen maintenance issues that arise months or years after all the paperwork is signed and completed.
And, while it should go without saying, everything in a custom home is brand new. This means that a large number of building materials, appliances, and home furnishings come with warranties directly from the manufacturer. Thus, you won’t need to worry about routine maintenance, and if something does break, you’ll likely be able to repair it at little or no cost.
9) OPPORTUNITY TO SELECT YOUR BUILDING CONTRACTOR
Custom home development is all about choices, and that includes the contractor you choose.
When you put your future to a homebuilder, you have the option of selecting the best. A company that uses only the finest materials and craftspeople increases the likelihood that you’ll end up with a home that exceeds your expectations and retains its worth for years to come, in case you ever need to sell.
10) OWNERSHIP PRIDE
There is an ethereal quality to owning a fully customized home. It’s a work of art and craftsmanship, as well as a reflection of your personal style and values.
