While anytime is the right time to build a home, it’s important to feel confident that you’re making the best move for you and your family. No matter where you are in the process we can promise you this: you’ll absolutely love living in a home that was designed just for you and your loved ones.
To help you know if you’re ready to start building a custom home, take a look at our list below.
You can’t find the perfect house
Looking for a new home takes an incredible amount of time and research, and while it can be fun to peruse Zillow at all hours of the day and night for new listings, at some point the search can become exhausting,
If you’re tired of finding homes that are close to what you want but not perfect, it may be time to consider building one that checks all the boxes. This way, you can be sure your home is in your desired neighborhood and has all the features you’re looking for.
You’re ready for a commitment
Sure, purchasing a home of any kind involves a certain level of commitment, but building a custom home raises the roof just a bit higher. That’s because custom homes are tailored to the lifestyle you’re living today, but with a with a nod to your future. Simply put, your custom home will support the needs of you and your family for decades to come. Building one makes sense if you plan on growing roots where you live.
The numbers add up
Contrary to what many people think, building a custom home is not always more expensive than buying one that’s already been lived in. If you’ve crunched the numbers again and again and keep finding that building a new home makes better financial sense, it’s time to seriously consider working with a builder.
Many buyers are disappointed when an inspection reveals expensive problems that need to be fixed before purchasing the home, or when the house appraises for much less than the asking price. These frustrations can be avoided by building a brand new custom home.
You’re ready to roll up your sleeves
There’s nothing quite like standing in the dream home that you helped build – from the planning phase through the finishing touches (don’t worry, you’ll never have to pick up a hammer!).
If you’re ready to experience the ultimate sense of accomplishment, consider building a custom home. Of course, the process can take a bit of time and require some patience, but if you work with a team like the one at Classic Living Homes, you’ll have all the communication and guidance you need to enjoy the process.
You want to get creative
It can be downright fun working with creative professionals like architects, interior designers and landscape artists. Your custom home is the perfect place to showcase your signature style and create a home that brings joy, inspiration and comfort to you and your loved ones.
You’ve got a growing family
Going the custom home route is ideal if you’ve got kids or a little one on the way. Building your home lets you create a layout the compliments the needs of your family and it ensures that you’ll have plenty of room to grow. A custom home can easily feature a play or crafts room, plenty of storage and a fantastic yard for the kids and your four-legged family members, too.
The kids are all grown up
Ready to downsize now that you’re an empty nester? It’s becoming more common for people to build their dream home a little later in life, especially once the kids have moved out or after retirement. A custom home can let you age in place, thanks to enhanced features for safety and comfort.
