Why Build a Custom Home?

Long-term Cost

There are a lot of myths about building a custom home.The first is that building a custom home is always more expensive than purchasing a home. While the upfront cost of building a custom home can be greater than what is associated with buying an already built home, many people forget to take into consideration hidden costs of home purchasing. When buying a brand new home, it will cost to upgrade certain features, repaint, add wallpaper, change the floor plan and other updates. These costs aren’t associated with the initial price. With buying a previously owned home, unexpected maintenance, repairs and replacements can really start to add up. Building a custom home means you can pick each material and option to fit your budget. Glidewell Construction is happy to work with you to find the best value for your budget.

You Get What You Want

This is the biggest benefit to building a custom home – you truly get what you want. Homes available for purchase don’t have the same options for personalization that custom homes do. In the custom home building process, you’ll get to select your preferred option for flooring, cabinets, bathrooms, appliances and more. When your home is done, it’s exactly what you’ve always wanted! Custom homes also allow you to have the most up-to-date features for your lifestyle, and can incorporate the latest innovations in energy efficiency and smart technology.

Greater Choice in Location

Custom homes can be built on land you already own or can give you time to find an area you’d like to settle down in. Greater control over where your home is located means you’re more likely to love it. You can be as far away or as close to your neighbors as you want, and choose school districts for your children.
