Does It Really Make Sense to Build a New Custom Home – Especially in a Hot Real Estate Market?

It the recent “hot” U.S. real estate market, it might be tempting to put your current home up for sale – with the goal of a purchaser snapping it up right away – and move to a pre-existing property that more closely fits your current (and potentially, your future) needs.

But, even though moving to an existing home can oftentimes make the entire process go a lot faster, there are several reasons why it makes sense to instead start from “square one” and build a brand new custom home, based on your own unique ideas.

For instance, a custom home can literally be designed and built specifically for you, so it can be tailored to meet your day-to-day lifestyle needs, along with offering the opportunity to adapt as your family grows (and/or starts to leave the “nest”).

Throughout the years, numerous building-related codes have changed, so constructing a new residence can also help to ensure that your plumbing, wiring, and other essential elements are up to date.

The same holds true with the home’s major systems (like the water heater and the HVAC) and appliances – many of which will likely come with warranties, as they are brand new. In addition, living in a home that you had a part in designing can give you a sense of pride and satisfaction – and that is something that’s difficult to put a price tag on!
