Should you get a custom built home?

When it comes to finding the perfect home, you could spend hours and hours searching online only to find that none of them quite match up to what you’re looking for. For example, you could have the exact amount of bedrooms and bathrooms of a decent size, only to find your kitchen and living room space doesn’t quite match up to what you need. Making the decision about what type of home you want to live in is a huge factor that will impact you for several years– so it’s incredibly important to get it right. 

Custom homes are homes that are designed by you and for your exact needs. They are unique, one-of-a-kind homes with a floor plan designed collaboratively between you and the homebuilder. Park City is a great example of the possibilities that a custom home can bring to you and your family. Here are some of the reasons why custom-built homes are great for families.

You can customise it to your exact specifications

Building a custom home means you get exactly what you want from your place and the design possibilities are endless. You even get a home builder to help you to plan every aspect of your home. Inside and out. That means if you want a spacious and contemporary kitchen with skylights, or a sunroom for dining in, alongside a cozy room with a woodburner designed especially to read books or listen to music then you can have exactly that. The only limit to what you have is your imagination. 

They don’t have to be expensive

Unlike a production built, a custom built house doesn’t have extra costs attached when making the adjustments to the house as designed. However, there are some additional costs that are associated with building a custom house. You will have to buy your own land– and custom house builders won’t factor that into the cost of the project–much how they won’t consider the cost of materials and additional labor costs.
However, with careful planning and wise spending, they don’t have to cost too much at all- especially if you are clear about exactly what you want out of your home. 

Custom homes grow with you

Many families will opt for custom homes as they are looking for their forever homes that suit them and the growing needs of a family. The idea of creating a space that nobody has lived in before is another key reason that people will build these homes to live in them forever. You will end up saving money on renovation costs in the long run. When you build your custom home, you build a family you hope to grow your family in, who will bring their families back home when they fly the nest. Spending the extra time creating and building your dream home will be an extremely worthwhile project if you plan to live there for the rest of your life. 

Make sure you take the time to study your options and create a budget taking into account the long-term savings that come with them over renting or buying an older house.
