If you're in the market for a new home, don't settle for a copy of what everyone else is living in. Make your new home something truly unique to you; choose a custom-built home. There's a lot to be said for having a home designed specifically for you. For one thing, you know there won't be any others out there like it. For another, you'll get exactly what you want out of the deal. If you're still not sold on a custom home, here are four reasons that will help sell you on the idea.
You Pick Where You Want to Live
If you're not crazy about the idea of living in a master-planned community, where every house looks the same, and the lots are all the same size, don't settle. When you purchase a custom-built home, you get to pick where you want to live. Whether you choose to live in the center of a bustling town, or out in the country, it's all up to you. You'll purchase the property, and then your home will be built to your specifications.
You Decide What's Included
If you want a home that is designed around your lifestyle, you need a custom-built home. Unlike tract homes, where you might be allowed to choose the color of your carpeting, you'll be able to choose everything when you buy a custom-built home. If you want upgraded flooring, or a home theater, you'll get those. If you want a garden tub, or a steam shower, you'll get those too. You'll just need to tell your contractor exactly what you want during the planning stage.
You Choose Your Level of Privacy
If you don't like the idea of knowing exactly what your neighbors are doing, and vice versa, you might not want to buy a tract home in a planned community. When privacy, and personal space, are at the top of your list, a custom-built home will suit your needs. One of the benefits of a custom home is that you can choose the level of privacy that you want.
You Avoid High HOA Fees
If you don't want to deal with additional costs, such as HOA fees, you want the freedom that comes with owning a custom home. Once you purchase your property, and build your home, you won't be obligated to pay HOA fees to any homeowners organization – unless you choose to build your custom home in an up-and-coming planned community.
