The process of building a house is always exciting. But here’s the thing: It’s a lot simpler than it sounds. (Wait, did someone actually say that building a house was simple?!)
Humor aside, building a house can be a long and exhausting process. Of course we aren’t here to scare you away from the prospect of building a house. We’ve said it numerous times in the past — it’s one of life’s most exciting adventures and an investment that can often last a lifetime and beyond.
What we are to do, instead, is to urge you to carefully consider the options that you have… and trust us when we say that you have several of them.
Among them is the option of custom building your Calgary home. If you are unfamiliar with this topic, here are 3 reasons why you should build a custom home instead of a production home:
Custom building your home gives you more freedom. Yes, freedom! Here’s a little known fact: Production homes in Calgary come with very, very little freedom. While they may be cheaper than custom homes in the city, you are simply giving up freedom in order to spend less money. If you are set on building the house of your dreams, then you can only do this by hiring Calgary custom home builders.
Custom homes are worth a lot more in Calgary: Nobody wants to build a home with the intent of selling it, but life happens, and sometimes selling your home is inevitable. As we said above, building a house is an investment that lasts a lifetime and beyond, but it’s also a HUGE investment. Generally speaking, custom homes have a higher resale value than production homes in Calgary… and the older they are, the more valuable they become.
Custom homes are fun! Lastly, custom homes in Calgary are simply a lot more fun to build than production homes. Not only will you have the last say on everything, you will even have the chance to experience what it’s like to live in the house you’ve always dreamed of. A good deal, no? 😉
