Building a custom home allows you to make your vision a reality.

“The dialogue between client and builder is about as intimate as any conversation you can have, because when you’re talking about building a house, you’re talking about dreams.”

– Robert A.M. Stern

Production homes can be less expensive than custom homes, but when it comes to your wish list, you’ll have to make some sacrifices because of their restricted design limits. Custom homes, on the other hand, are one-of-a-kind—designed and built from scratch to embody your dreams. The process is highly collaborative, typically including the homeowner, custom builder, architect, and various other parties involved in the design and logistics. If you think a custom home may be right for you, here are six of the many benefits you’ll reap.

  1. A custom floor plan. With production and pre-existing homes, what you see is what you get. Making major changes to a floor plan requires knocking walls down, dealing with the inconvenience, and investing a lot of time, money, and effort. Do you want an oversized bedroom? A laundry room on a second floor? A first-floor master suite? These options are easy to get if you choose to custom build your new home.
  2. Location, location, location. Maybe you’re in search of the perfect mountain view or a secluded spot near the lake. The ideal location increases the value of your home while also making it the perfect place to live. Production home builders don’t have the liberty to build on any plot of land, but when you choose a custom home builder, you can find that perfect, enchanting spot you really love.
  3. Lot optimization. When you buy a pre-existing house or a production home, you have no control over the placement and design of the building in relation to the piece of land it’s on. Building a customized home allows you to work with designers and architects to take advantage of the positive features of the lot on which you’re building. You can make the most of important factors like sunlight and shade, air flow patterns, and the trees and foliage surrounding the home.
  4. More for your money. Custom-built homes can actually cost less than some production homes when you factor in the packages of options from which you must select. And with a custom home, you pay only for the space you want and need. With an existing or production home, you often wind up buying unused space for which you’ll pay a mortgage and taxes for many years to come. If you build your custom home to be energy efficient, you may also be able to take advantage of federal tax credits that allow you to deduct as much as 30 percent of the cost of certain green building materials.
  5. A smooth construction process. Building a new home can be a complex, arduous process. Custom home builders reduce the stress by acting as the single point of responsibility for hiring and managing contractors. This ensures a seamless design and construction process that results in the home of your dreams. When all parties are on the same page, it makes it easier to work within your budget and the established schedule.
  6. Superior quality. Building your custom home from the ground up dramatically reduces the chance of substandard construction. Working with a trusted and experienced custom home builder virtually guarantees your satisfaction, so it’s important to do your homework and choose your builder carefully.
