When you choose to build your home, you have the opportunity to include all your needs and desires into one of the most important assets you will ever own.
If you’re in the market of buying a house and you feel that options that fit your lifestyle are lacking, building could be a better option for you. When you build a custom home, you’re getting exactly what you want, where you want it. Aside from the opportunity to own your dream home, there are many factors you should consider before choosing to build.
Where you live is very important.
When you choose to build your home, you have the opportunity to choose where you want to live. If you’re planning a family, you have the ability to build your home in the right school districts, or close to family and friends. Additionally, the newest schools, parks and other community facilities are almost always built near or in new residential developments.
One of the major benefits of designing a home yourself is that you can create precisely what you want. From blueprint design to choosing the right light fixtures for the bathroom will be hand-selected by you, with the help of our designers and contractors of course.
FROM A VISION TO A HOME
Older homes are usually lacking in energy efficiency and retrofitting can be unpredictable and expensive. Our homes are built using energy-efficient techniques and materials, so your power bill stays low. We’ll even provide you with an engineered report to show you how efficient your home is compared to others.
If you don’t see yourself spending your time on maintenance and renovations, choosing to build might be a good idea. Being a weekend warrior is not for everybody, and by owning a new home, maintenance requirements will be much lower and less costly.
When you build a new home, you are going to be receiving years and years of combined warranties: from our 1+7 LUX New Home Warranty to third party components and material warranties like 10 year on heat pump compressors, 25 years on roof shingles and so on, and all this translates into maintenance cost reduction and ease of mind for you.
Whether you are planning for your new home to be your forever home or you want to live in it for 5-7 years, you always have to factor-in its potential resale value. A 5-year-old home will have a better resale value than a comparable 20-year-old home. Additionally, a newer home will give you, as a seller, a solid base when negotiating with buyers.
