How Much Does Building a Custom Home Really Cost? May 11, 2017

Rockford, Winnebago
How Much Does Building a Custom Home Really Cost? , Rockford, Illinois

Everyone has their own idea of what the perfect home is, which is why house hunting can be so difficult. In addition to wanting a place that’s a great investment, you want a space that suits your personal style, has the amenities you need, and simply feels like home. According to the team from New Leaf Homes in Rockford, IL, the best route for many future homeowners is to build a custom home.

The most common myth about building a new home is that opting for a new construction is always more expensive than buying something previously built. In reality, this isn’t the case for many homeowners. In fact, building a custom home can actually save you money in the long run. 

The Real Cost Of Building A New Custom Home

Aren’t New Construction Homes Primarily For Wealthy People? 

Absolutely not! The great thing about building a new home is that you can make it as large and extravagant or small and cost efficient as you want! Just because you opt for a new home does not mean you have to spend a lot of money. 

How Can You Make A New Construction More Affordable?

It’s actually fairly easy to keep an eye on your budget when you go the new construction route because you can select all of the finishings yourself. Small things like engineered hardwood floors, reclaimed light fixtures, and poured concrete countertops can save you a lot of money on a new construction.

Once your home is complete, you’ll find that a new home saves you money in lots of different ways. New homes have new windows, better insulation, and more energy-efficient appliances. This often translates to lower monthly bills than many people in older homes have, which adds up over time. 

Won’t It Take Longer To Pay Off A New Home? 

Not necessarily! In fact, many people choose building over buying because they’re able to pay for things at their own pace. As long as you manage your budget while you design, there’s no reason you can’t get a new construction within your budget.

When you have a new home, you don’t have to deal with costly repairs or renovations. Many homeowners who purchase used homes fail to realize just how much money they’ll spend on renovations to make their spaces livable. Plus, new homes come with brand new warranties on everything from craftsmanship to appliances, so you’re covered for years.
