The advantages of building your own custom home start to add up when comparing the pros and cons of building vs buying.
The home you live in is a big part of your life. With so much time spent there, it’s important to have a home that fits your needs. Here are some reasons why we think building a custom home has some major advantages over buying what’s currently available on the market.
Everything is custom. From the number of bedrooms and bathrooms, to the size of your living space and kitchen, to the floor plan and square-footage. Have a big family and need a big kitchen and walk-in pantry? Love outdoor living and want to build an outdoor seating area and fireplace? Want a built-in library in your den? If you’re building custom, getting to choose details like these is a major benefit you miss out on by buying an already built house.
More than just getting to choose personalized details in your home, building custom means you can plan your house around the exact functionality you’ll need. You can create a home office, a gym room, kids’ playroom, or mother-in-law suite. The options for customizing your home and it’s functionality are almost endless!
Another benefit to building a custom home is that you get to choose your neighborhood and your lot. If you prefer a secluded lot in the woods, you can build whatever home you like on that lot. Rather than being stuck in whichever neighborhood a pre-built house happens to be in, you get to intentionally choose your community.
In addition to choosing your home’s functionality, customization, personality, and location, you also get to have a say in the materials that go into making your home. You can choose energy efficient materials for windows, doors, insulation, and more, to save money on energy bills. You can choose brick siding to minimize maintenance. Want hardwoods or specialty tile? With custom, the choice is yours!
