3 Best Benefits of Building a Custom Home
Wondering whether to buy a preexisting home or build a custom home? You’re not alone. There are a lot of factors to consider when contemplating your next home investment. And while the general assumption is that a pre-built home will be a better financial option, you could be sacrificing some of the amenities and features you’d get from designing your own custom home. So how do you decide? Here are the 3 best benefits of building a custom home.
1.) Start brand new
When you purchase a preexisting home, you may end up with extra space you didn’t need or lack of space that you wanted. Also with a pre-built home, you’re also possibly buying the previous owners unknown maintenance issues, like structural integrity, quality of building materials used, dated appliances, and more. Building a custom home guarantees you’re getting everything brand new which could dramatically save on maintenance costs in the future.
2.) Energy efficiency
When you build a custom home, you ensure that your house will be built with consideration and materials that save you money every month and meet the highest energy efficient standards. There is also a Federal Residential Energy Efficiency Tax Credit to offset annual expenses for your custom built home. This credit allows for up to thirty percent of certain green building materials to be deducted from your taxes.
3.) Quality safety standards
Another advantage to building a custom home is the complete assurance that your home is being built in accordance to the most up to date safety codes. It can be difficult and costly to retrofit a preexisting home to meet the most current safety standards. Custom built homes assure important safety measures and regulations are being met such as up-to-date wiring systems. And you can be rest assured that hazardous materials that can be found in older, historical homes such as asbestos, lead, and formaldehyde will not be present in new home building products.
