Your comfort isn’t the only benefit of building your own custom home. You will also be able to build the home on your dream location, and with plenty of custom perks, like energy efficient appliances and privacy. You may even save money down the road from having fewer repairs or remodeling projects than an older home.

Here are a few other reasons you should consider building a new, custom home if you haven’t decided already:

Seamless Design/Build Process

Custom Home Group’s design/build process means a seamless transition from concept to structure and a smooth, easy process for you from start to finish. Instead of separating each step into separate processes or dealing with different parties, Custom Home Group handles it all! Design, budgeting, and construction is all one process and is all handled by the Custom Home Group team. This integrated design/build process controls job costs and delivers quality construction, all while ensuring you get the dream home you’ve always wanted.

Finally Have Your Dream Home

A custom home builder works tirelessly to create the home you’ve always wanted. When working with a builder, plan as many details as possible so nothing is forgotten or ignored. You should also make sure you to have a specific timeline. Then, if there are any hiccups you will be prepared – and can continue construction as scheduled.

Live on the Lot You Want

If you have a lot that you love, a custom home builder can do everything possible to make sure your dream home is there. Work with your realtor and builder to make sure your dream lot has everything it needs before you build.

Freedom to Tweak Design

You can tweak the design of the home before building actually begins. Before you start construction, you should troubleshoot ideas, changes, or issues with your builder. This will ensure construction will go as scheduled, and you can begin moving in sooner rather than later.

Energy Efficiency

New homes often mean new appliances. Almost all newer appliances are energy efficient, which can save energy, and money, in the long run. If you’re going to choose new appliances, look for the EnergyStar logo so you know your purchase is a good one.

Custom Appliances

In addition to energy efficient appliances, you can also find your own to further customize your home. Many people absolutely despise lugging a vacuum cleaner from room to room. With a central vacuum system, that will no longer be a concern. If you hate doing laundry, you can purchase faster washing and drying machines. If you want to cut down on your garbage, you may want to consider trash compactors and a compost chute. You will be amazed what you can find to make your home exactly for you.

Saves Money

Although a custom home is often a large initial investment, it can save you some serious money in the long run. By investing in a custom home, you will create the exact dream home you want. No messy home installations, fewer basic repairs, and no additions are necessary. From the beginning, you and your builder will design the home together. Your ideal space, realized!

Privacy

You can ensure privacy for you and your family by choosing certain lots. By picking the right piece of land, behind a copse of trees, or set beyond a hill, you’ll feel like you’re in a world all your own. Be sure to visit and discuss each possible lot with the builder to find the best location for you. Your contractor will also be able to show you an array of fences to ensure your privacy.

Less Maintenance

Because custom homes are brand new, there will be less maintenance throughout the first 10 to 20 years! Unlike an older home, there will be less to watch out for – like old water heaters, chipped bathroom tiles, or uneven foundations.

Choose Materials

Choosing your own materials can be incredibly beneficial to your home in order to save money, be energy efficient, or create a certain feel and look. You will also have the opportunity to use the most efficient and sustainable materials available right off the bat! You can discuss possible material and appliance options to cut down on maintenance as well as to achieve the look you desire. You’ll be surprised how much you can save. By working with your contractor, you can consider all your options to have the best dream home possible.

Sentimental Value

Imagine having a home that was designed and built just for you. Give the phrase, “Home Sweet Home,” new meaning by having a home that will make you feel welcomed and at peace no matter how far you roam.
