According to U.S. Census Bureau statistics released for the first quarter of 2015, 63.7 percent of Americans are homeowners. And for the vast majority of these, their homes represent the largest financial investment they will ever make. However, your home is not only an investment in your financial future, but is also an investment in your present level of comfort and security.
That being the case, custom home building can provide both a good investment opportunity and contribute to your comfort as well. Why should you consider custom home building over the more available spec building that is usually done?
It all boils down to what you most value. While you can easily find spec-built homes that offer some of the things you want in your living space, it is rare to find a spec-built home that truly meets all your needs without the cost of renovation of some sort.
A custom builder will sit down with you and discuss exactly what you envision your perfect house to be. For instance, if your family spends a lot of time in the kitchen, your builder can ensure that your kitchen is spacious and well-designed for the way you will use it. Perhaps you long for a well-appointed home office that is not simply a spare bedroom tucked between other rooms of the house as an after-thought. Your builder can make that happen. Maybe you are a book lover, and your dream house includes a beautifully appointed library with built-in bookcases. Your wish list can be easily accommodated to make your home truly your unique, personal space.
Some question whether a custom home is a truly affordable option. However, consider this for a moment. How valuable is your personal comfort and satisfaction? As your home is the place where you will be spending quality time with your family and friends, it is logically a place that needs to be everything you envision. While spec homes may meet some of your needs, they can fall far short of your ideal. Working with a custom builder, you can create the space you want while keeping an eye on costs. In this way, every penny of your investment is spent making your vision a reality. It will be money well spent.
Custom builders also provide a high level of personal service through every stage of design and construction. This means that you will know exactly what is happening at every point in the process, which allows you to help shape the project according to your wishes.
