If you’ve been in the market for a house for what seems like forever, you may be looking in the wrong places. No, I don’t mean you should look at different neighborhoods or even different cities… but maybe, instead of looking exclusively at resale homes, you could find out how to build a custom home to satisfy all your needs.
There are a lot of resales out there (as you no doubt have discovered). But the very idea of a resale is that someone before you owned it. That means that some other family has already customized the home to their needs. And they may not have even been the original owners, so it’s entirely possible that the home has been customized by more than one family over time.
Custom home construction puts you in the driver’s seat — or, rather, the architect’s chair. You get to have input on the design of your home from the ground up — literally. You control how many rooms there will be, what those rooms are designed for, and a hundred other small details to build a custom home for your unique family requirements.
Need an exercise room? Build it right, with reinforced floors, plenty of ceiling clearance, and open walls for mirrors or mats. Planning on a home office? You can include custom built-in shelving to flank your desk, along with precisely-placed outlets and Internet ports.
However, many people worry about cost when talking about building custom homes. Building new homes may, on paper, be initially more expensive than comparable resales, but what that same paper won’t show you is how much it will cost to renovate a resale in order to get it just the way your family wants it. When you build a custom home, what you buy is exactly what you need.
If you’re tired of looking at resales that just don’t cut it, you owe it to yourself to check out the wide variety of builders available. You can choose from beach builders, rural builders, even luxury custom home builders — just know that the right builder is out there to help you and your family get the home of your dreams, the first time.
