When deciding between building a custom home or buying a ready to move in home, there are many things to consider. Starting with your home's purpose, are you going to live there just for a couple of years? Are you getting this home to grow your family in it? Or do you want to age in it?

After you define your home's purpose, the second most important factor to consider is what your budget is. Then, of course, time is essential to decide between building a custom home or buying a new home in Edmonton.

To help you on your decision, we have put together five good reasons to have your home built by a custom builder:

#1. Custom home builders can build your new home where you want it

Building a custom home is a unique experience in which the homeowners can plan and choose every detail in their home. This includes having the chance to select the quality of the building materials, choosing their finishes, and planning the overall look in their home.
If you like having projects and already imagine getting involved in the process of creating your dream home, most likely building a custom home is an excellent choice for you.

Custom builders are usually working on only few projects at a time. As a result, they are not afraid to look into options such as urban infill lots, allowing you more choice of where you want to build.

#2. Custom Homes Are Unique

As a rule, you can expect almost complete customisation from a custom builder. To begin with, a custom builder is working with a greater range of design options, often built on a single plot. This allows you to select most of the details of your new home.

When buying a ready to move in house, you spend most of the time looking into different models and layouts that can fit your needs and at the end, the most common result is that you will not be fully satisfied with the new home. If the house is under construction, any change to modify current plans could cost you money and, in some cases, the builder can not make the changes because of the amount of work involved. With a custom builder, you will have the opportunity to change things you dislike, and keep in mind that for Custom Builders, the “Upgrade” term does not exist.

#3. Saves Money

Although a custom home is often a large initial investment, it can save you some serious money in the long run. By investing in a custom home, you will create the exact dream home you want. No messy home installations, fewer basic repairs, and no additions are necessary. From the beginning, you and your builder will design the home together. Your ideal space, realized!

#4. Budget Control

Many people believe that building a custom home is much more expensive than buying an existing home. This isn’t necessarily true. When building a custom home, you decide how your new home is constructed within the limits of your budget. You can control the price point of every single thing that goes into your new home, from construction materials to special features.

Your custom home builder will take your budget into consideration during each stage of the construction.

#5. Choose Materials

Choosing your own materials can be incredibly beneficial to your home in order to save money, be energy efficient, or create a certain feel and look. You will also have the opportunity to use the most efficient and sustainable materials available right off the bat! You can discuss possible material and appliance options to cut down on maintenance as well as to achieve the look you desire. You’ll be surprised how much you can save. By working with your builder, you can consider all your options to have the best dream home possible.
