Why You Wouldn’t Want To Build Your Own Home
As stated in our previous blog, the debate between buying and building a home is an age long debate and there are very valid and practical reasons to build your own home, but on the flip side there are very valid and practical reasons why you SHOULD NOT build your own home.
Here are some reasons why you SHOULDN'T build your own home:
You like paying more.
With our unique homebuilding program, you are building equity from the start. With a low down payment, there isn't a huge financial investment up front. And, since all of the appliances are new and the home itself will be new, you won't need to worry about replacing a roof or a furnace right after you close.
You don't want the hassle and headaches that come with construction.
Okay, we admit it, this one is valid. How many people do you know that have built their own home and haven’t complained about the process? Building a home is a lot of work when you factor in the decision-making, planning, and dealing with the workers. For months, you will constantly have to worry about receiving a phone call that something has gone wrong. But then again, we help you to manage the process in a much more streamlined manner.
You take pride in doing your own home improvements.
Hey, who doesn't love to spend a whole Saturday with their honey-do list? If you build a home then it’s going to be new for a while and the chances of you having to make any home improvements are slim. If you buy an older home or a ‘fixer upper,’ you can take pride in doing those home improvements yourself and design it with your own ideas and character.
It can cause A LOT of stress.
When you are building a home, you have to make decision after decision and constantly deal with things that have gone wrong and it can put a lot of stress of both you and your spouse and could cause some unnecessary disagreements and arguments between the two of you.
You don't like getting exactly what you want out of things.
We get it... It's fun to have something to complain about. The wall that's in the wrong place, how much better the space would be for entertaining if you could combine the kitchen and family room, how much easier it would be to get ready for work if there were two sinks in the master bathroom... We get it!
