Great Reasons to Invest (and Build) Your Dream Home

Why build your dream home?

Having your own home is probably the single largest investment you can make. However, turning your dream home into reality always involves the struggle of deciding between buying one or building a custom home design.

To help ease this kind of dilemma, here’s a question to ask yourself: why don’t you invest your money into something you are 100% happy with?

Browsing through hundreds of listings can be a daunting process, not to mention that it can also end up in complete agony when you find out that the house you’re hoping to put your money down on has been outbid by another buyer.

Building your own home, on the other hand, offers you endless choices and possibilities of what kind of design you want and what you pick to go inside. Additionally, knowing that it’s your dream home and it’s something that you have fully customised for you and your family can provide you with utter satisfaction.

Skeletal phase of constructing a home

Let’s take a closer look at some of the best reasons why it’s a great thing to adopt the self-build ethos.

Best value for money

Purchasing a home that already exists in the market typically comes with a fixed price range. Building a home, on the other hand, will provide you with the ability to customise your home based on your determined budget. That said, having those two extra bedrooms is not impossible as long as you have a well-thought plan for building.

Your dream house, your call

When you go with an existing home, it’s inevitable to encounter some little parts of it that you don’t like. Dealing with a little dysfunctional niche here, an awkward corner there can be stressful, not to mention costly. This is another dilemma that custom building can solve. With the help of a professional home developer like Preferred Homes, you can precisely create what you need based on your preferences.

Get in on the action

You can live in an already existing home for years but you’ll probably not understand quite how it works. Of course, you can have the basic knowledge about plumbing or how the electric circuits work but do you really know what makes it tick or how it was built in the first place? Getting the front row seat in your own home construction, on the other hand, will provide you with a newfound respect for the home development trade and you will also have an in-depth understanding of how all the inner workings of your home tie up. Right from signing the contract to site inspection until the minute the last finishings are applied.

A more low maintenance home

Home maintenance is usually a huge factor that most homebuyers fail to consider that only throws them off guard when the time has come to deal with the repair costs when large appliances break. Another huge advantage to having a custom-built home is that everything is new, which means that every facet should have very little to no maintenance at all — at least not for a long time. Once your dream home is ready for move-in, you’ll be worry-free and can enjoy your brand new living space without getting stressed with unexpected expenses.

It’s good for your soul

In addition to all the cost savings you can benefit from when you choose to custom build your home, there is another major plus that you can enjoy. The feeling of watching your home get built brick by brick is second to none. Not only are you providing for your family but you’re also the project manager of the living space you all enjoy.
