READY TO BUILD YOUR OWN CUSTOM HOME IN 2020?
Thinking of adding a custom built home to your list of resolutions for 2020? There are plenty of reasons you might choose a new home, built from the ground up and customized for you and your family, instead of buying an existing one. Here are a few:
YOU HAVE A SPECIFIC STYLE IN MIND
Whether you’d like a high ceiling with exposed beams and a beachy vibe, or a sprawling contemporary gem with a minimalistic approach, finding a builder that suits your needs and builds to your taste gives you the power to more closely align your home with your individual aesthetic.
PRO TIP: Partner with a custom home builder that can pair you with an architect to achieve the desired result. A great collaboration between you, your contractor, and a talented architect is a dream team approach to getting exactly what you wish for.
YOU HAVE THE FINANCIAL MEANS TO DO SO
Many times, prospective homeowners make concessions based on a budget they’re working with – one that will ensure they have the financial capability to shoulder a down payment, carry monthly payments, and accommodate associated expenses that might come along unexpectedly while they’re buying their new home. Perhaps our new homeowners want five bedrooms and find the perfect four bedroom house just within their budget, or the neighborhood isn’t quite as close to the beach as they would like. While you also have a budget, yours may include the means to build your own dream home – in your dream neighborhood – tailored to suit your needs.
PRO TIP: Make sure you do the research! Compare construction loans and interest rates and carefully comb over contractor bids with your Architect to ensure you’re getting the most added value and the best return on investment.
YOU WANT TO TARGET A SPECIFIC LOCATION
Speaking of the perfect neighborhood, perhaps you have an eye on a certain school district for your children, or you spend a lot of time on the water, or maybe you’d like to cut down on your commute to and from work. By customizing your own build, and choosing the lot, you’re allowed the freedom to more closely curate your location to accommodate your growing lifestyle needs.
PRO TIP: Consult with an expert for tips and insight on some of the best potential locations that can accommodate exactly what you’re looking for in the area you’d like to build. They can offer suggestions that may not occur to you or that may not find their way into your top search results when you’re doing your own research.
No need to renovate! Set aside the potential for any remodeling projects down the road by customizing your new home now. This gives the homeowner the opportunity to create a space that will be useful, enjoyable, and have a lot more longevity than a home that has already been lived in.
It also forgoes the possibility of unexpected outcomes when you purchase a home that has been previously owned. You’re not suddenly saddled with structural issues, unexpected hazardous materials, or even a previously unknown mold problem.
PRO TIP: Go after what you want! Owning a home is an opportunity to express yourself, to create an environment you’re comfortable in, and to surround yourself with what matters most. So speak up! Tell your team exactly what you want and work together to create a vision of hearth and home for years to come.
