You might not even realize it, but most people nowadays are looking to get out of the renting world and become homeowners, and for a good reason! Renting a home is expensive, and all of that money never materializes into something you outright own. But when shopping for a home, you have two choices: buying new construction or buy a pre-existing home. Both options are beneficial for different reasons. Here are a couple of the best benefits you can expect when you buy a brand new custom-built home instead of moving into an older home.
Low Maintenance Requirements
Contractors create custom-built homes with entirely new materials. This means that they’re in excellent condition before and after installation. Not only will this make your custom-built home look more beautiful, but it also lowers your home maintenance requirements in the process. Look at it this way: older homes have older fixtures and materials, and as those begin to age, they develop issues that have to get fixed. You save yourself plenty of time and trouble with buying a custom-built home from a contractor.
Energy efficiency is at the forefront of all modern custom home designs. This includes everything from the roofing materials to the light fixtures installed throughout your home, all work without raising your energy bills. The longer you own your home, the more you save on cooling, heating, and electricity costs. Older building materials lack the efficiency of newer materials, and technology makes it easier and cheaper to produce efficient products without high prices. Robin Ford Builders will also ensure your home is airPLUS certified.
When you’re buying a pre-built home, you’re limited to the existing floorplan. If you decide to make any changes, you have to pay out-of-pocket for any home remodeling and renovations. Considering the average cost of a smaller bathroom remodeling project ranges from upwards of a few thousand dollars, creating the home of your dreams can quickly become pricey. When you buy a new custom-built home, you can customize the features and pick out the perfect floorplan for your needs before the project even begins. This can save you thousands in the long run. Your home will be the right fit way before your move-in date.
