Time to Move? Here's Why You Should Build a Custom Home, Bigfork, Montana

Though your starter home contains many memories, you’ll eventually start to outgrow it. As you add members to your family, you’ll likely need more space and want to enjoy the convenience of certain upgrades. Here are some of the benefits of building a custom home when the time comes to expand.

Why You Should Build a New Home

Design Freedom

custom homeControl over the design is one of the biggest incentives to build a custom home. Think about what doesn’t work for your family in your current space, and re-imagine everything from the floor plan to the fixtures. Extra rooms for the kids are a must, and you might also want an office or gym. You may even want to install a pool in your backyard for relaxing and entertaining. 

Better Location

Proximity to amenities is yet another reason why you might choose to move into a new home. When you build a custom home, you get to select whatever location you wish. If you have school-age children, you may want to prioritize school districts, or you may want nearby banks, hospitals, and shopping. If you want a bit more peace and privacy, build in a neighborhood that puts plenty of space between properties. 

No Renovations

You may have considered renovating your current home rather than building from scratch, but it might not be worth the money. Home additions only provide you with so much extra space, and it may be more practical to design your own custom home. The latter can provide a better long-term investment and could have a much higher resale value. You also won’t have to deal with the hassle of renovations or construction happening at the home you already live in.

Energy Efficient Upgrades

If your current home is energy inefficient and you regularly notice steep utility bills, it’s probably time to move. Build a home with coated windows, durable roofing materials, premium insulation, and energy efficient appliances. You’ll also help the environment by reducing your carbon footprint.
