New Year, New Home: Benefits of Building a Custom Home
Now that we’ve entered the new year, many people across Canada will begin to look into moving. Moving into a pre-built home may seem like the best option, but choosing to build a custom home can be more cost-effective, and it ensures you get everything you’re looking for in a new home, especially when you build your custom home with Omega Homes. There are a lot of benefits to choosing to build a custom home rather than moving into a pre-build that get overlooked because people have the misconception that it is a difficult process, but with the right home builder, it doesn’t have to be. Here are a few of the most important benefits you’ll experience when you embark on the journey of building a custom home with Omega Homes.
Total Control Over the Design
Finding a home that meets your needs can be difficult, and finding one that suits your style can be an even bigger challenge. The last thing you want to do after investing in a new home is to invest more into getting it to meet your design needs. One of the biggest benefits of choosing to build a custom home is having complete control over the design, because it allows you to create a home that is uniquely and perfectly yours. From major design details like floor plans and layouts to the small intricate details like flooring and backsplash choices, you can customize your home from top to bottom. This may seem overwhelming to some people, but with the right team of designers and contractors, all you need to do is explain what you want and what your budget is, and they can make it a reality.
Inclusion of Amenities
We all have different needs and interests, and when you move into a pre-built home, you’re moving into a space that was designed for someone else’s specific needs or the generic needs of the public. Having control over the amenities in your custom home will greatly benefit you during the moving process because you won’t have a long list of renovations, but it will also benefit you for years to come. Having amenities that suit your unique needs will make your day to day life less stressful, so you can focus on the things that really matter. Perhaps you like certain appliances in your kitchen like a gas stove or even small features like a pot filling faucet. Although those are just two examples, going through the trouble of getting gas and water hook-ups put into a pre-built home can quickly turn into an intensive renovation. When you build a custom home, the possibilities are truly limitless. Perhaps you want a full-on spa bathroom with a steam room because work is stressful, and you need a place to unwind; you can make that a reality before you even move in. There’s no reason you should have to settle when it comes to moving into a new home, and building a custom home with all the amenities you can dream of ensures you’ll never have to.
Power Over the Budget
As we noted earlier, one of the most common misconceptions about building a custom home is that it’s more expensive than moving into a pre-built home. The reality is, one of the greatest benefits of building a custom home is that you can do it on your own budget without going over because of bidding wars or closing costs. The right home builder will work with you every step of the way to stick to your budget, while still creating a home that is uniquely yours. When you purchase a pre-built home, the price is firm, and there’s very little room for negotiations. Plus, you could end up paying a premium for a home that is in disrepair simply because of its location. Building a custom home allows you to choose a location that suits your needs, and then create the home of your dreams all within your budget.
The beauty of building a custom home is that you’ll have the peace of mind, from start to finish, of knowing exactly what you’re getting. We’ve all heard horror stories of new homeowners discovering faulty wiring or cracks in the foundation of the pre-built home they purchased. When you build a custom home, you aren’t relying on honest sellers and qualified inspectors to disclose everything to you, you get to be a part of the process from when the blueprints are drawn up, to when the final wall is painted.
Start the new year and your custom home build off right with Omega Homes!
