You already own a home, but it falls short in a number of places (or it’s only a couple years away from falling over). Should you choose to build a new custom home entirely or rehabilitate the home that you have? Here are some of the advantages of building a new custom home instead of purchasing an existing home.
You Get What You Want
This reason seems overly simplistic, but it lies at the heart of why many people choose to build a new custom home. When you design and build a custom home, you get exactly what you want, where you want it. You won’t need to worry about settling or remodeling soon after moving in, as the home can be designed to accommodate you and your family as you are now and as you will be in the future. Do you want to age in place? A first-floor Master suite can be built right into your home. Planning on having a couple more children? Adding more bedrooms is no problem.
Green building is a huge custom home trend, and your home can be outfitted with the latest in energy efficient appliances and windows. Things like Energy Star rated appliances, energy-efficient plumbing fixtures, and energy-saving heat pumps can all make your custom home something that saves you money every day. In the event that you choose to move out of your custom home someday, these features will also increase the selling price.
A Happy and Healthy Place
Older traditional homes often contain substances that are now known as being toxic or dangerous. A custom home allows you to purchase products that are healthy and safe for your family. You will rest easy knowing that your home is free from asbestos, lead paint, mold, and mildew.
