After careful consideration, you have decided that custom homes are the way to go. You want something unique that meets your needs more than the typical production home. After a visit with a mortgage broker, however, you have come to the realization that your perfect dream home is a tad beyond your budget. Does this mean you have to settle for a production home? Actually, no it doesn’t. There are a number of things you can do when custom homes are beyond your budget.
- Lessen Upgrades – While it is tempting to think your home needs to have all the bells and whistles, consider that many can always be added later when you get your next bonus or tax refund. If you are just a tad short of getting the home of your dreams, hold off on things like the high-end faucets, decorator lighting, top-of-the-line appliances, and expensive flooring. While you will pay more in the long run to buy both the first setup and the second, if this gets you to your ultimate goal, it will have been worth it.
- Consider Semi-Custom – You can usually save a tremendous amount by going with a semi-custom instead of full custom home. You’ll also be able to add more luxury features and still come out better off in most cases. While semi-custom homes do not have the same uniqueness as custom homes, when you do various customizations, you will still feel like your home is one-of-a-kind.
