The competitiveness of the housing market is fierce. Today’s home buyer has many more options than were available 10 years ago. They may find several homes that are perfect, or near perfect, during their search for a new home. Customization in the home building process has nearly everything to do with that. If you’re considering buying a home because you think the building process is too expensive, keep reading.
Retirees aren’t necessarily going to be looking to build a house near the best schools in the area, and people with children aren’t going to look for a retirement community. Lifestyle has a lot to do with the location of the home you choose to buy or choose to build. Consider traffic patterns and proximity to things that are important to you.
The Price Range
The size and location of the home are primary considerations where price is concerned. Consider buying or building outside city limits if you can find the size house or land you want in the price range you need. Your budget will help determine the size of the house as well as the materials you choose.
The Builder You Choose
Types of builders are generally broken down into three basic categories. The track builder builds homes in subdivisions using similar floor plans and pricing for each home. They may be hired by the property owner or an HOA and be required to stick to specific parameters. Semi-custom builders have a wider variety of floor plans, but they still have a few limitations on design and materials. Custom builders like us have a broad variety of design options and our only limitations are building codes and your budget. Okay there may be a few more, but you get the idea.
The Lot or Land You Choose
It doesn’t really matter whether the lot you want us to build on is flat or hilly. We can excavate to create an amazing home site. You should consider the difficulty of driving to it in the winter or during spring rains if you choose property with a steep grade.
