Why Now is the Time to Invest in Custom Built Homes

_______

Did you know that most homebuyers spend 30-60 days shopping for their dream house? The first week or so is exciting, but the process gets discouraging pretty quickly.

If you've bought a home before, you understand the pitfalls: there's a property you love, but the house isn't big enough. Or the house itself is perfect -- except that the location isn't ideal.

Unless you're incredibly lucky, the best way to find your perfect home is to consider custom built homes. Here are a few of the reasons why.

You Can Get Exactly What You Want

Trying to fit your existing family and lifestyle into a house that wasn't made for you can feel a little like shoving a puzzle piece into a place it is not meant to go. Custom built homes, on the other hand, are the perfect fit.

How many bedrooms would you like? Would you like your main living spaces to be open plan, with the kitchen, dining room and living room all blending seamlessly into one another?

Want an attached greenhouse, a sunroom, or a backyard patio with plenty of space for entertaining -- and that brick pizza oven you've been thinking about?

Custom home builders will give you exactly the home you've dreamt of. Even if your ideas are still a bit unfinished, they can help you refine the layout, style, and amenities that will make this house a home.

You Can Build the Last Home You'll Ever Need

Are you part of the Baby Boomer generation? If so, you might be considering your options for retirement. While there are plenty of advantages to senior living communities, many people -- 87% of all Boomers, in fact -- would rather continue to live at home.

This is called "aging in place," but it can be difficult to do if your home doesn't have certain features. For example, walk-in bathtubs, attached caretaker facilities, and wheelchair accessibility are important to consider as you grow older.

This is where custom built homes can be a godsend. The builders can advise you about the amenities and floorplans to consider when you want to age in place -- and then they can provide it.

Location

It's the central consideration of real estate for a reason. Maybe you are already living in a neighborhood you love, and you don't want to leave. On the other hand, you might be ready to relocate -- but can't find a house to suit you, for a price you like, in the area you're considering.

With custom built homes, all you need to do is find the parcel of land that's located where you want to live. This can be much easier than trying to hunt down the right home and the right location.

Why Consider Custom Built Homes Now?

According to the National Association of Homebuilders, the custom built homes market is slowing down, at least temporarily.

This means that it's a buyer's market -- and that by choosing a custom built home, you'll get more bang for your buck.
