Love at first sight is every soon-to-be homeowner’s dream. You find a home for sale and love every single thing about it. From the age of the custom home to the color of the roof right down to the fencing. While you will build a custom home that you and your family will fall in love with, it might not be 100 percent perfect. To help you figure out what you desire in a custom home, we put together these three home building and living tips.
What Does Your Heart Truly Desire?
It may sound a tad corny, but the best place to start is with the classic question: what is in your dream house? Maybe it’s roomy bedrooms, a southern-facing picture window, a spacious and large backyard, or even a high-rise apartment in a city within walking distance to museums and restaurants. But there is a big difference between want you desire in a custom home and what you absolutely need. Be honest with yourself and what you actually cannot live without. You may also want to give yourself a reality check now and consider your home building. How much home can you afford? Where can you afford it?
Start Assigning Items as Needs or Wants
Look at the list you’ve compiled for your dream house and work backward from there. Begin by categorizing each item on that list as a need or a want for your custom home. There is no need to bump off wants now, but it’s constructive to keep those in mind as you look for a custom home builder. By doing this, it is helpful to consider what you are willing to pay more for and what you could probably live without. Remember that there is a lot you can change about your custom home. After all, it’s your dream home. Make sure you and your partner or family are all on the same page with this list to cut down on any potential arguments throughout the custom home building process.
Still Prioritize Things You Desire
Now that you have everything important straightened out and organized in a list don’t forget to make a list of the objects or features in your custom home that you still want. It wouldn’t be a custom home without a few lavish features or accessories in it!
