Why Build A Home?

Building your own home means that you will get exactly what you are looking for.

When making your decision about buying vs. building, don’t rule out building too quickly: Building your own home has the potential to be easier than ever, particularly with so many developers offering a predefined set of floor plans and options. Building your own home gives you the flexibility to have things just the way you would like. But even with the added conveniences of a developer, there are some drawbacks as well.

Building your dream house offers tremendous sentimental value and advantages in the long run. When you build a home, you can have everything your way from the carpet in the den to the cabinets in the kitchen and everything in between, both structurally and design-wise. There are definitive feelings of emotional fulfillment and pride in a house that has become “your baby.”  Also, having everything brand-new and up-to-date is a tremendous advantage when you build instead of buying an existing home. For instance, all the appliances will be brand-new and likely under original warranty. Furthermore, the construction materials and building code will be up to the latest safety standards. Modern society also is reflected in a newly built home: Everything from wiring for high-speed internet to the latest in spatial, acoustics and architectural trends can be added without much trouble.

Additionally, the advantages are not just limited to your property. If you are building a new home in a new neighborhood, you will often find these developments to feature recreational facilities, community lawn maintenance and location closer to the newer parts of town (read: better shopping, newer schools, etc.). Kevin Daum, CEO of Stratford Financial Services, also cites some added tax and financial benefits, such as being able to deduct the interest, points and property taxes paid along the way. Daum says, “Done right, there can be significant profit in building as well; otherwise spec builders wouldn’t be doing it.”
