If you can afford the upfront costs of building a custom home, it is absolutely the best way to go. While arguably more stressful than simply purchasing a home already built, there are numerous reasons why custom is the way to go. Custom home builders are skilled in bringing your unique personality to life in a home that fits your needs, style, budget, and design preferences, but there’s so much more benefit to building custom than that.
First off, you get to choose the location of your home. Rather than be sucked into living in a subdivision or being forced to live in an area that wasn’t your top choice simply because that’s where the houses are, you can scout a dozen locations and choose the perfect one for you. Whether that means building in a city center or way out in the middle of nowhere, your location can reflect your lifestyle. Plus, you choose your views, landscape, and orientation for your home.
Plus, you get to choose how large your home is, down to individual rooms. If you want a smaller home that prioritizes a large kitchen and bathroom, you can do that. If you’d prefer to focus your attention on a large entertainment space with a large yard for your 4 dogs, go for it. whether you need a 4000 sq. ft. home or are content in a 1400 sq. ft. bungalow, you get to make that choice.
As if that’s not enough, you’ll also get to control every detail in your home, from the materials to the layout to the colours of your walls. When the builders and designers are through, there won’t be a single element of your home that you want to change. Everything will be tailored to your tastes and lifestyle. Plus, you’ll save money by doing this all from scratch rather than remodeling or renovating after purchasing a home that doesn’t fit exactly into your vision of your dream home. You control every aspect of the home, from green, energy efficient appliances to marble countertops or hardwood floors. You’ll never be able to purchase a home that has everything you want, so building custom is the best solution.
