Buying an existing house might seem like the easiest option when you’re considering a new home. With an existing property, there are no major decisions to be made about design, materials and fittings; you can simply walk in and make it your own.
While this is convenient, there are also many benefits to custom building, and in the long-run it might be worth the extra effort because you will have something which is uniquely your own.
Here are Allaro Homes top 5 reasons to custom build your home:
Money. A custom designed home can be a much cheaper option than an existing house. People are happy to pay big dollars for the convenience of a turn-key house, so if you’re willing to take on the work of a new build, you’ll reap the rewards.
To calculate just how much you can save, compare the construction costs with existing homes in the same location that have similar features. This will give you an idea of how much potential profit you could make. Be realistic with your figures and don’t forget to factor in hidden building costs to get a true understanding of the savings.
It’s made just for you. A custom-build can be designed to suit your lifestyle and provide all the features you need. Not all Cairns builders can offer this. It gives you an opportunity to put your unique stamp on your home and creates a great sense of ownership and accomplishment.
Energy efficiency. The orientation of your custom house can be planned in relation to sun and wind patterns, enhancing energy efficiency in your home. This can reduce energy bills substantially by making the most of passive heating and cooling. In tropical regions such as Cairns, houses should be angled to benefit from cooling breezes, funneling the breeze through the house.
Quality appliances. This is one of the great advantages to custom building a home; you aren’t forced to live with someone else’s choices. If you buy a house that doesn’t quite meet your standards, it’s easy to tell yourself it’s only temporary and you’ll update soon. The reality is that most new home owners don’t have any spare cash for several years to buy new appliances and make changes in design and layout. With a custom build, you will get the appliances and layout that work for you without compromising.
