There is nothing more satisfactory than moving into a new custom home that has been built to match your personality and lifestyle perfectly. However, some homeowners are deterred by some myths about custom home building that may cause concern. The truth is that they really are just myths and not a legitimate cause for concern! Find a few common fears about custom home building here and allow Platinum Builders to debunk them for you.
Myth #1: It’s too expensive
Many home buyers assume that a custom home will cost more than standard options since they are designed to suit your specific tastes. However, the truth is that the price of a custom home is influenced by many variables and it won’t necessarily be more expensive than an existing home with comparable features. Features such as style of home, number of bedrooms, and square footage are key in determining the cost of a project and we can determine that in our first meetings with you.
Myth #2: It’s too time consuming
Any construction project is prone to timeline delays due to factors beyond human control, like the weather. However, once you approve our design plan, the project timeline is the same as any other home, even if it is being built to your exact specifications. The only thing that can delay construction is the selections process but when you work with a leading builder in the area, any timeline delays will be handled just as swiftly as any other project.
Myth #3: I need to know design
Custom home building may deter some home buyers because they think they have to design the home themselves and, as a product of that, they believe that they need to be familiar with home design. However, the truth is that you don’t need to have any of your own design knowledge to create the perfect custom home. Platinum Builders will work with you and listen to all your wants and needs to deliver a house plan that meets your personality and lifestyle.
Myth #4: Home builders upcharge for premium features
It is true that home builders make their profits based on the total cost of your home and some home buyers may be wary because they think that custom home builders will steer them towards more costly features. However, home construction is a highly competitive industry and quality builders value their reputation and referrals from clients more than the bottom line of one project. You won’t encounter such tactics when you work with a high-quality builder like Platinum Builders.
Myth #5: You have to buy a lot before your custom home construction
Some home buyers believe that they need to do a lot of their own buying before their dream home construction can begin, such as purchasing a lot to build their home on. However, the truth is that experienced home builders can assist you in finding the perfect lot for your perfect home by evaluating price ranges and neighborhoods that fit your criteria. After helping you find the right lot for your custom home, we will proceed with your construction.
