Custom Home Builders
If you are interested in a new home and debating against existing “pre-loved” homes or building one, it is possible you have a few wrong ideas or missing facts about custom home builders. Here are a few things you may not know about going this route or may not know all the facts about:

  • Custom home builders are expensive. This is the most common belief out there and the reality is that it isn’t always the case. Yes, there are certainly ways in which your custom home budget can get out of control, but it doesn’t have to go that way. Taking extra time at the planning stage or going with a semi-custom home can minimize costs and budget overruns.
  • Custom home builders take forever to build a home. There can be some things, such as weather and backordered materials, which are beyond your builder’s control that can result in some delays. However, experienced custom home builders have many contingency plans for minimizing delays. While it does take more time to build a custom home than one from predesigned plans, this can be reduced by going with a semi-custom option. You’ll still end up with a unique result that best suits your needs, but it will take less time.
  • Custom home builders will build anything you tell them to. It is true that custom home builders will work diligently to give you the results you want and have a great deal of leeway in terms of giving you everything on your list. However, they must also follow building codes, so you have a home that is safe. There can also be things from an engineering standpoint that cannot be done.
