Reasons To Fall In Love With The Idea Of Building Your Own Home
It’s Valentine’s Day and love is in the air… Spring is just around the corner and people are starting to dream of flower beds and backyard barbecues. Many of our new clients have fallen in love, in love with the idea of building their own home. Why, you may ask?
Less Of An Initial Investment.
With the Homestead program, your initial investment is much smaller than a down payment on an existing house that’s on the market.
They want to have all of the extras that mean so much to them, without the cost of a major overhaul if they need to revamp an existing house that’s on the market.
Our clients are looking for man caves and finished basements. Anything to make their home more their own and display more of their personalities.
When you build your own home, the only constraints you have to the design are what’s humanly possible and what your budget can handle. Other than that, you have full control over what room goes where and what every surface could be covered in.
Added bonus: You’re not just tied into what’s on the real estate market at that point!
One of the more recent trends that’s taken homebuilding by storm is the open floor plan. Lots of little closed off rooms makes for some very stuffy living.
Having open space contributes to more natural light filtering through your home and more of a “lived in” feeling.
Most of our clients don’t start off with a Ph.D. in homebuilding (is this even a thing?), but with our program and their hands-on work as their own general contractor, they learn so much about what all goes into building a home of their own.
When you’re taking on the challenge of building your own home, there’s a pride that comes with that. Sure, you’re not swinging the hammer every time or doing everything yourself, but with the hands-on process here at Homestead and acting as your own general contractor, our clients feel great pride when they’ve completed the building of their new home and they can say they did it themselves.
And The Best Reason : NEW.
Moving into an existing property can come with hidden expenses from significant home upgrades and repairs. With new construction, your home is NEW. There is no need to worry about needing to replace a roof or fix the foundation as soon as you move in.
Plus, you are the first owner so it still has that “new home smell.” Delightful!
