Build or Buy?

exterior3A number of important decisions are involved in the purchase of a home. But one of the most basic decisions is the first one, which will impact the rest of the process: buy an existing home or build one from scratch? As home builders, we of course recommend a custom-built home. Here are some of the compelling reasons why.

The primary advantage of building a new home is that it can be built to individual specifications. These houses can be made in the specific vision of the buyer and changed as the building process progresses. You can choose the paint, flooring and any upgrades that you want. You can choose if you want white carpet, brown carpet, or plush carpet. If you choose not to go with carpet at all, you can choose hard wood or any other type of flooring. You get to choose the type of paint or even the color if you do not want the standard flat white wall. And when you have a newly built home you can be assured that every part of the construction from the carpet and wiring all the way to the newly laid roof will last for years to come.

Another benefit is that floor plans of today meet the current needs of a family. Since the design of the home is new and up to date it meets all the specifications and currently required guidelines and standards. There are no modifications needed to meet those standards because they are already in place.

New homes also have the most up-to-date technology and building materials. They can be built with energy saving features such as large argon filled glass windows, which saves on light and heating cost, energy saving toilet and shower fixtures, energy and cost saving insulation, and other energy saving features, like appliances, that can be implemented to save money in the long run. They are more energy-efficient than older homes, which helps keep energy bills low.
