Building vs Buying: What you Need to Know
Many families looking to buy a new home are faced with the same problem. Should we buy a home that already exists or build a brand new home? There are so many factors to figure in, so here are the top reasons why building a home is a better idea than buying.
- Your family gets exactly what they need.
It can be stressful driving around with a realtor looking at homes that are missing things your family needs. Not enough bathrooms, tiny kitchen, etc. Wouldn’t it be much easier to sit down with a home builder with whom you can describe your perfect home and have them make it a reality?
- Building a home is safer for your family.
When moving into a previously owned home, you have to make sure that the home does not come with its own set of problems, like mold. Also, building standards are much higher than they were in the 60’s and 70’s, making your newly built home much safer for your family.
- It’s greener to build a new home.
While this may not sound right, it’s true! Homes built now are made to be more energy efficient, with better insulation and better windows. Which leads me to my next point…
- Green homes save you green!
By building an energy efficient home, you will ultimately save money on utility bills. Green homes will also increase the resale value of your home, making it a much better investment.
- It costs more money to renovate than build.
So your family has found a home at a great price, but it needs some work. It costs way more money to fix what’s broken than to build it right the first time. Think of the stress of your family living in a work zone, too.
