When most people buy a home, they plan on staying in the home for a significant period of time in order to get the most return on their investment. However, when you buy a pre-existing home or you decide to purchase a new build in a developing neighborhood, down the road, you may realize that the home doesn’t have everything that you’re looking for or it may even have features that you don’t really need or want. What’s worse, you may buy the home knowing that it’s not really going to meet your needs. Why settle for a home that you’re going to regret purchasing or make changes to at a later time, when you could simply build a custom home to begin with?

If you happened to read our last blog, you’ll know we’ve already listed some of our top reasons as to why you should build a custom home and we’d like to finish our list for you today.

Why You Should Build A Custom Home Continued

Easy Upkeep

When you buy a pre-existing home or even a new build, you can’t be sure that of all of the materials that were used were of high quality or if the workers cut corners to speed up the building process. If the home is older, you’ll also have to worry about how much longer things like the roof, furnace, hot water heater, and air conditioner are going to last before they need replaced. When you build a custom home, every item in your home will be new, up-to-date, and you can hand-pick your home builder and general contractor to ensure you are putting your home in the hands of people you can trust. When your custom home is finished, you won’t have to worry about things breaking or needing replacing until years down the road, making a custom home very low maintenance.

Tax Benefits

When you choose to build a custom home, you can write off a good amount of the cost on your taxes. You have the ability to deduct interest paid on your home, property taxes and points that were paid during the home building process, and if you’re a first-time homeowner, you could get a first time homeowner tax deduction. Be sure to consult with your accountant in order to determine the tax benefits you could enjoy if you build a custom home.
