If you’ve spent any amount of time trying to find your forever home, you know it can be a daunting task. Between location specifications, design preferences, and unique architectural needs, sometimes it can be downright impossible. After all, no matter how gorgeous an existing house may be, no one can envision your dream home exactly like you can. The good news? Building a custom home allows you to make your dream a reality. Here are just a few benefits of building a custom luxury home rather than buying a pre-owned or new production home.
- True luxury means not having to compromise. Building a custom home offers a choice in almost everything throughout the homebuilding process. Beyond choosing cabinets and flooring, custom home builders are flexible in mixing styles and plans to construct a home that is molded to your needs and lifestyle. Production homes, on the other hand, offer very few options and even less flexibility once building starts.
- Your family is unique and your home should be, too. Perhaps you have a multigenerational family and need an extra living area. Maybe you’re a yoga enthusiast, while your partner collects cars, and your kids swim every day. Or, you might expect to retire in your home and want to plan ahead with low, wide doorways and a one-level layout. Regardless of your family’s specific needs or extracurricular activities, you can incorporate the space for such luxuries into a custom-built home—but they’re hard to find in an existing one.
- Location, location, location. There are endless reasons location is often considered the most important factor in real estate. Whether your primary concern is the safety of your neighborhood or the view from your kitchen window, finding your dream home in your ideal location is a tall order. And if you’re buying an existing house, chances are you will have to compromise. By building a custom home, however, it’s possible to have it all. When the location of the lot is your only criteria, your book of options becomes much larger.
- It’s not easy being green (if it’s not custom). When you build a home from the ground up, you can easily work green features that enhance your home’s efficiency into the plan. For instance, you can plan to harness passive solar and greatly reduce energy costs, or use water-saving appliances throughout the home. Retrofitting an existing home with green features, on the other hand, is sometimes impossible, if not a nuisance to undertake—and a costly afterthought.
Ultimately, investing in a custom home ensures a higher level of satisfaction. The best part?
