Unless you're searching for a vacation home, you probably plan on moving out of your current space before settling into your custom dream home.
Do you sell your home before the new one is finished? What options are there for seamlessly transitioning from one to the other? These are the questions we aim to answer in today's blog!
The benefits of building before selling...
Every situation is different in terms of finances, household, and needs from a home. With that being said, there are a few up sides to building a home before moving out of your current space.
One such benefit is the ability to move once and be done. Moving is no small task, especially if you're moving with a large family or young kids who might be shuffling in and out of school during the process. By building your new home first, you can move, switch schools (if need be) and get re-acclimated to a new environment in one fell swoop. You also avoid the need to find temporary housing in the form of a friend, family member, rental property, etc.
... or selling before building
Of course, selling your home before building your dream space also comes with its share of benefits. For example, can rest easy knowing that, after the sale of your home, you'll be better prepared to invest (financially and time-wise) into your dream property. Selling before the build also offers you a chance to tie up loose ends, in a way. In this version of the process, once you build your home and move in, there's nothing to worry about besides simply settling in and enjoying your new space (because you'll have already taken care of the sale and all of the steps like staging and decluttering that go with it).
Time constraints and how we can help
Like we mentioned earlier, there's no perfect answer. We have clients who could easily benefit from either one of these processes--you just need to figure out the route that's best for you. We can help with that, of course, by providing you with information about the length of your build (so you know what to expect, or how long you may need rental accommodations for) as well as step-by-step updates on the progress of your home.
We hope that today's blog has helped you to better understanding the construction process (and the logistics behind it). We of course know that you might have more questions--and we're more than happy to help answer them. Call us today to learn more!
