Build or Buy? Three Reasons to Build a New Home

When you are ready to start the next chapter with your family and move to a bigger home, it may seem easiest to simply buy a home that is already on the market. But there are a lot of advantages to building your home from the ground up. Here are some reasons to build a new home for your family.

Floorplan to Fit Your Lifestyle

You know your family’s needs. Perhaps you need an office or den to work or study at home. Perhaps you need a mud room off the garden. You might need a hobby room or extra children’s rooms for use as your family grows. While you can find a home that will meet your basic needs, only a home that you build from scratch will meet every desire and need of your family.

Lower Energy Bills

The technology behind construction has changed dramatically over the last 20 years. A home built today can be built using eco-friendly materials that help you keep your energy costs low. Choosing the right windows, insulation, doors, and foundation can make a huge difference in how much it costs to heat and cool the space.

Lower Maintenance Costs

If you buy a home that is even just 15 or 20 years old, it is going to need some maintenance. Building a home from the ground up means that everything about your home is brand new. You are not likely to have much in the way of maintenance or repair costs for many years.
