Deciding it is time to find a new place to live is a significant moment. It can be even more stressful if you’re also choosing to buy a new home. Many people assume that their only option is to buy an existing house and hope to find something that meets their needs and wants. That can be nearly impossible, however. How likely is it to find a place in the area where you want to live that has enough space to fit your family and has all of the things you want and need? One solution to this problem is to build a custom home instead. While it sounds more challenging than just buying a home, buying a home that needs significant work ends up costing you the same and still ends up falling short of your dream home. For many people, custom home building is the way to go! Here’s why.
Location, Location, Location
One of the hardest parts of finding a new home is getting one in a location you like. It has to be close to work, good schools, friendly neighborhoods, and everything else you need for your family. There are so many factors that once you’ve found the right location, you might settle for any house. If you’re building custom, you can find the perfect location and then build exactly what you want.
Get Exactly What You Want
The biggest reason to choose custom home building is that it is the only way to truly get what you want. Even if you are completely gutting and renovating an existing house, it still will be different from what you want because the shape and structure of the house determine certain things. When you build from scratch, you control the design and can make sure that everything is how you want it, down to the shape and size of the individual rooms.
It’s An Environmentally Friendly Choice
It seems counterintuitive, but custom home building is actually a more environmentally-sound decision. Of course, buying an existing house feels close to recycling which is a green choice. The problem is that, in old houses, you often get materials that are environmentally unsound and maybe even dangerous (like asbestos). Building new also lets you integrate Energy Star appliances and other green initiatives to ensure that your home’s environmental impact is minimal from the start.
