If you’re having a hard time deciding whether to buy or build your own home, you’re not alone. There are so many benefits to both options and you deserve to be well guided. At Unique Home Building, people come to us with that question often, because we know homes. From renovation to building from scratch, we are experts in our field and want to give you peace of mind so you can make the best decision possible.
Both buying and building your own home will come with its own individual benefits and challenges. When buying an existing home you don’t have to deal with construction and land costs or a moving timeline that may be extended, but you also inherit the previous homeowner’s problems. With a new home, the benefits are pretty obvious: customization, fewer repairs and the satisfaction of knowing your home is distinct and one of a kind. You do have the option of remodeling the home you buy – leaving you with a middle ground option. However, when all is said and done, the safest and wisest option is to build your own from the foundation up.
You aren’t stuck settling for the perfect home in a non-perfect area. You have the freedom of deciding your neighborhood, school district, development investment and even sense of community.
You’re in charge
When deciding to build your own home, every square inch is customizable to your needs. You can design a kids room perfectly according to their play and learning needs, you can design a master bedroom to suit both his and her preference or even create a chef-suited kitchen where you can prepare gourmet meals. From paint colors to countertops, flooring and fixtures—all of the decisions are made by you.
One of the biggest challenges with buying an existing home is that you’re also buying the previous owner’s challenges. A When you custom build your home, you minimize the repair costs and maintenance because everything is new. In addition, many home builders also offer at least a one-year warranty on certain workmanship, which is added protection just in case something stops functioning properly in your new home.
New builds are usually more energy efficient than older or existing homes because of new construction standards and higher energy ratings. Some new home builders also use green or recycled materials. These materials may increase upfront construction costs, but they save you money over time because of efficiency of heating and use.
There are several benefits to building a custom home, but the tops ones are quality craftsmanship and service. At Unique Home Building, we specialize in quality work and service. If you are interested in creating your own unique home, contact us today for more information!
