Ready for that dream home? Today’s homebuyer is spoiled for choice—what with existing, semi-custom and custom homes to choose from, you could spend months picking the right one for you!
But there is only one king of the hill—the custom home. The benefits of working with a reputable designer to build your very own custom home will give you a sense of long-lasting satisfaction that is second to none.
Let’s look at five benefits of custom homes:
Let’s say you’re looking at buying an existing home. Did you consider the costs of renovations, repairs and maintenance? It is a used house after all! And what about the surprise repairs you didn’t notice when you first signed on the dotted line? There will certainly be some of those. If you consider a semi-custom home, the initial price might seem reasonable, but as soon as you expand or modify existing plans, costs can skyrocket. With a custom house you and your designer will draft, plan and build your home within a predetermined budget. And all along the process you can monitor the costs with your builder to make sure there are no surprises.
You will never achieve the same level of personal satisfaction renovating a house that was built for someone else. No matter how hard you try, the original owner’s stamp will always be on that house. A custom house is the real deal. It carries all of your personality and is uniquely yours from the size of rooms, number of windows, colours and choice of flooring to the appliances, siding and doorknob style. It’s you.
Building codes and the quality of materials are evolving at an astounding rate to keep up with the need to make homes more energy efficient. A custom home in Edmonton today with it’s Low-E windows, high-efficiency furnaces, AC and water heaters, low-consumption appliances, insulated garage doors—you get the picture—will be less expensive to live in and leave a much smaller carbon footprint than a house built even five years ago!
Because you work in tandem with your designer as the house goes up, you know exactly what materials are going into the house and who is doing the work. This means fewer sleepless nights wondering about the quality of your future dream home!
