When you’re looking at buying a house, you think of all the features that you want it to have. Maybe you want a certain flooring type, a garden tub in the bathroom, and an open kitchen with bar seating and an island. But when you start the search, how many homes do you come across that meet your exact criteria in the location you want? Chances are, very few. Maybe it’s time to consider a custom home.
When you go with a custom home, you get to choose everything. This includes not only the floor plan, but all of your appliances and features as well. By being able to pick out the appliances that will best suit the needs of your family, you won’t have to worry about replacing ones that are already there, and might be outdated.
Another great advantage to building a custom home is that it can be designed strategically to afford you more privacy. When you work with the architect and the builder, they can help you to figure out the best orientation, and window placement, to achieve this. They can also help you to figure out the best way to get the most natural lighting as well as optimal views.
Older homes are more prone to air leaks. The appliances inside may also be outdated. With a brand-new custom home, you can be assured that it is as energy efficient as possible. This includes better insulation, energy efficient windows, updated HVAC systems and more. An energy efficient home will keep the interior comfortable while reducing your energy bills.
Speaking of saving money, a custom home can help you to do just that in the long run. When you buy an existing home, you have to spend money making updates on older appliances and making repairs on things that have broken. With a custom home, everything you want and need is already there, and it is brand-new.
Simply by being able to design your dream home – the floors, the counters, the cabinets, the hardware in the bathroom – and have it built from the ground up, that in and of itself is a major benefit. Creating the custom home of your dreams and then being able to live in it will ensure that you are left with a home that you truly love.
Building a custom home will allow you to bring your dream home to life. At Porter’s Neck Plantation and Country Club, we work with the best designers to help you achieve this goal. Along with a house you will really love, you will also have the advantages of our gated community, and easy access to beautiful downtown Wilmington. Call today for more information!
