Five reasons to build a new home
You can hire a real estate agent, search the market for months, get disappointed and keep the cycle going. If only a different option existed, but wait - there is! You and your family could have a brand new home built by YOU! These are the five reasons why building your own new home is better than searching the real estate market.
You might of found the perfect home, but can’t compromise on the neighborhood it’s located in. That’s a bummer. Back to searching again. You and your family can stop this madness and weeks to months of searching for a home built by your own imagination! You can find a plot of land in an established neighborhood with the right atmosphere, street noise, amenities and other essentials you desire. You won’t even need to compromise on neither the location nor house!
Say goodbye to fixer-up projects
The home you purchase might not have enough square footage, big enough garage, a newly updated kitchen or bathroom and the list can go on. You spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on a home all for it not to be what you want?! Wondering how much the average renovation or fixer-up project costs a family?
- Adding square footage: on average $7,000 to $100,000
- Basement addition: average $18,711
- Plumbing, electrical and structural: an average sum of all of these $1,133 without installation by the hour.
This money can easily be put away into a bank account, used to put a downpayment on a plot of land or purchase materials and hire a contractor! Plus, fixer-uppers can take months to years to complete and STILL might not be exactly your dream home.
The latest appliances, doors and windows can make a world of difference. A simple installation of an energy-efficient refrigerator can save you over $270 over the next five years! So what are the benefits to living in a new, energy-efficient home?
You’ll have a peace of mind because everything from inspections to installation is done by professionals! You’ll find with your new home and energy-efficient installations there are reduced leaks and drafts, along with consistent temperatures and more improved indoor air.
