For many people, building a new custom home is a once in a lifetime experience. So, while you may not want to think about the resale value of a home that has not even been built yet, the reality is that considering what you can sell the home for in the future can be a major criteria when designing a home’s floor plan, as well as when choosing the amenities that will be included.
For example, it is important that your home be functional. Here, there are various layouts that may or may not work well for everyone – including a future potential buyer. Choosing quality when it comes to windows, doors, flooring, and fixtures can also be key, as these can display a high caliber of workmanship – and going with a better grade with these items can also help to ensure that they will last for a longer period of time.
When considering additional amenities, not only will you want to lean towards items that you will use, but here, too, it is important to choose what may be eye-catching (or even expected) from a future purchaser. As an example here, when living in the Sunshine State, outdoor pools are oftentimes the rule rather than the exception, especially in larger and higher-end custom homes.
Regardless of whether your spend many years living in your new custom home, or you opt to sell it within just a short time, it is important to ensure that you have taken steps to help keep the home’s resale value high.
