Potential clients have asked us a series of questions regarding the process over the years. We have compiled a short list of frequently asked questions and answers to help you prepare for the beautiful journey to home ownership ahead of you:
Why should I build a home when it would be easier to just buy a home that is already built?
At first glance, purchasing a home that is already built may seem like the easier option, but there is no greater satisfaction than seeing a home that you designed turn into reality. You will be involved in every detail of building your home from the architecture of the outside, to the finishes, flooring, and hardware of the interior. Building your own home gives you the creative freedom to get a space that will cater to every one of you and your family’s needs. You will get to oversee everything and choose all of the features so you can make adjustments as you build and utilize design styles that may not be available in the homes that you are looking at.
Aside from the creative freedom, house hunting is a tiresome process that doesn’t always result in achieving your dream home. There are certain expectations you may have about the home you want, budget restrictions, and even location requirements. It will be a challenge to find the perfect home in the right area with all the tiny details that you dream of. When you choose to build your home, you are affording yourself the luxury of getting to have control of every aspect of your home.
Will it be more expensive to build my home versus buying a home on the market?
The simple answer to this question is: No, it will not be more expensive to build your own home. In fact, many families have found that building their dream home is a cheaper option than buying a pre-built home. There are several factors that weigh into the price of buying/building a home and our team will happily guide you throughout the entire process of deciding your budget and deciding on the specific cost details. When purchasing a home, prices are mostly set in stone with little wiggle room on what is an acceptable price for the home. You may be able to negotiate slightly but when you build your own home, you will get to pick all of the materials so you can rest assured that you will stay on budget. Building your own home with UBuildIt not only allows you to select the materials you desire, but also be in charge of the budget.
What is the difference between a custom home and a production built home?
Consumers often call production built homes, “cookie cutter houses” and other similar terms related to the design being duplicated multiple times. You have probably seen local neighborhoods with multiple houses that are either identical to one another or closely resemble each other. These are production built homes that a builder and an architect worked together to design and then duplicate multiple times. This type of home will not be customizable to your vision nor will it be guaranteed to meet the special needs of your family.
A custom home, one that is built from the ground up, is a home that is truly one-of-a-kind. As the project manager of your home, you will be able to determine room sizes, types of fixtures, layout, and all the other details throughout the building process. Our expert staff is here to assist you throughout the journey of designing your very own custom home.
