Benefits of Building a Custom Home
When it’s time to move, many people begin what is often a long and frustrating process of looking for their next home. Purchasing a resale home almost always requires compromises, and buyers are often forced to choose between the features of the home that they want, such as a roomy family room, and those that they do not, such as dated kitchen appliances. Even new construction has its drawbacks, as buyers are forced to select their home from a relatively small list of floor plans and options. For many people, building a custom home with Quality Craftsmen is the best way to create the home of their dreams.
Location, Location, Location
When shopping for a resale property or looking at a new construction community, homebuyers are faced with the need to find a home that they love in an area that suits their needs. Virtually every house-hunter has found a nearly perfect home, only to discover that it is not in the school district that they want, or would require a difficult daily commute to work. Building a custom home allows you to not only choose the design and layout of your home but also where that home will sit. The ability to put down roots in the location that is best for you and your family is the number one reason why so many people choose a custom home.
Building a custom home also allows the homeowner to take advantage of the latest energy efficient options. Whether it is excellent insulation, the latest in window technology or passive solar energy collection, a custom-built home allows you to make use of the most energy efficient home building options on the market. For those homeowners who want to take green living to the next level, it is even possible to integrate solar panels, rainwater collection or even a green roof into the design.
Lower Maintenance Needs
A newly constructed home will require far less in the way of maintenance than a resale property. Even better, there are fewer surprises and no worries about whether or not the previous owner’s “home improvement” efforts did more harm than good. Our properties are backed by our Five-Year Workmanship Warranty, so you will move in with the peace of mind that comes with knowing that our homes are guaranteed to provide the safety, craftsmanship and comfort that we are known for.
Many people assume that a custom home will be more costly than purchasing a resale home. In reality, however, a custom home can be a far less expensive proposition. Custom homes provide buyers with a property that is perfectly tailored to their needs, while a resale home often requires a significant amount of renovation to reach a similar outcome. Also, with a custom home, you have the ability to choose where you spend your budget. If having a gourmet kitchen is a priority, then your dollars go toward reaching that goal. You decide if a more detailed shingle type is worth the additional cost, or if a third garage bay is the best use of your money.
