Build Your Dream Home


Why Build?

The primary reason you will want to build is you get to select exactly goes into your new dream home. But there are many more benefits to building…

It is possible that purchasing a used home may be initially more affordable, but not necessarily in the longer term. You should consider the possible future expenses associated with an older home. From the new more open floor plans, which are more conducive to the way we live today, to updated finishes and colors, everything is what you want from the start, so you won’t have to spend additional funds redoing the home after you purchase it. You will also get the added benefit of the current higher standards of energy efficiency codes and less upkeep associated with used homes.

New construction almost always beats older construction. Older homes usually mean dated windows, insulation and appliances, which means dollars flying out the window, literally, on wasted energy. Older homes have more existing wear and tear, which means certain things may need more maintenance, or they may need replacement. Typical items which may need replacement are the electrical, plumbing, furnace, roof and air conditioning systems.

Unless you can find an older home that has been completely upgraded with no deferred maintenance, and is exactly what you want, building your own new home with the help of a licensed contractor may be the way to go.
