The Top 3 Benefits of a Custom Home
Custom home plans are becoming more and more popular in recent years. Whether it’s the economy becoming better or society’s obsession with all things shiny and new, the fact is that luxury home designs are on the rise. There are, of course, quite a few benefits past the “shiny and new” aspect that make these designer home models beneficial. Read on for just a few ideas of those benefits!
The first benefit is that it’s good for the environment! If that makes you scratch your head, think of it this way: since these homes are built with newer and more energy efficient appliances and amenities, they use less water and less energy. Both of those combined equal a smaller carbon footprint.
Another benefit to custom home plans is that you can connect everything in your home, adding to the previously mentioned efficiency in your home. For example, many people are requesting for their custom home builder to install a smart system. This would connect all devices, electronics, and security measures, making them controllable from smartphones and/or tablets.
Lastly, you get more for your money. Rather than buying a house that you kind of like and spending the next decade making renovations until you’re happy with your home, you can just move into a home with the specifications you want. Custom home builders only charge about 15 to 25% of the price of building your home. Some of the most popular features people ask for are spa rooms, custom wine cellars with tasting rooms, full outdoor kitchens complete with a wood-fire pizza oven, vineyards, stone bathtubs, infinity pools, solar panels, and geothermal HVAC systems.
What do you think about these benefits of custom home plans? Is this something you would consider for your own home? Why or why not?
