It is often said that the profit in real estate is made when you purchase a property as versus when you sell it. And, while most people don’t typically think about purchasing their primary residence in this way, it is an important factor, as there can be unexpected circumstances that cause you to sell your home in the long- or even in the short-term.

Building a custom home can be an opportunity to truly put your personal touch on your residence. But even when you are doing so, it can be important to ensure that you are able to find a buyer for it down the road.

So, what is the best way to go about building the home of your dreams, while at the same time making sure that it won’t turn into an added expense if your situation changes? Here are a few tips to keep in mind.

First, according to the National Association of Realtors, keeping energy costs at a manageable level is important to many buyers. In this case, making sure that your custom home is energy efficient can be a key to making the property enticing to a potential purchaser – and to helping you get a better return on your investment if or when the time comes.

Maximizing the Resale Value of Your Custom Built HomeAnother primary factor is storage. In this case, including a lot of storage space can give your home more value. This can particularly be the case in the bedrooms and the kitchen, as well as in the garage.

For example, walk-in closets can provide space for clothes, as well as other items that aren’t necessarily needed on a daily basis, but that can be accessed quickly and easily. Likewise, making sure that the kitchen offers plenty of cabinet space is a given for most home buyers today. Having a large pantry can also be an extra added bonus.
