Custom Built Homes Offer Design Flexibility
Many people have come to find that custom built homes can be the best way to get exactly what they want in a home without having to compromise on quality and design. After all, when you purchase a preexisting home, whether it is a builder’s inventory or a home that has already been lived in, someone else has already made many of the design and color choices for you. This can be extremely challenging, especially for someone who has very clear ideas about how they want their home to look.
Fortunately, there are many builders that offer custom built homes, and the design options, size and even price range can vary tremendously. While there can certainly be a significant advantage when considering a custom home, there are also some factors that one needs to keep in mind. For example, not all builders offer the opportunity to customize every aspect of a home. They may have several design options to choose from and within those options, various customizations can be made.
There are, however, some builders who offer custom built homes that can be customized to suit just about any design or style that you want. With these builders, you typically choose your own land and work closely with a design team in order to create the home of your dreams. When you are creating your own custom home, especially one that you get to design from the ground up, the only limitations are typically your imagination and budget.
Resale Value of Custom Built Homes
When it comes to selling a property, one way that real estate agents determine a fair market value is to compare the home to similar properties in the same area. While a custom built home might not be similar to other properties, there are still features that can be used to help determine value. For example, the square footage of the property, number of bedrooms and bathrooms, amenities and even upgrades, can all play an important role in the value of a home. Fortunately, custom built homes tend to be very popular with buyers and are typically very easy to sell, especially if they have been well maintained.
