Have you been constantly tossing around the idea of building a custom home? While making the initial decision to move forward can feel a bit overwhelming, there are fortunately a few clear signs to help you realize that you're ready to pull the trigger:
1. Your current home is not functioning for your lifestyle needs.
Maybe you have a growing family and don't have enough bedrooms to accommodate everyone. Perhaps you've made the decision to work from home, but don't have the space to dedicate to a home office. Or, if you do a lot of entertaining, you're finding that you don't have the square footage to comfortably host a party at your home.
If you're spending a lot of time in the car each day to go to and from the office, you're missing out on a lot of valuable family time at home. If you can find a home in a neighborhood that is more convenient to your office, children's schools, and other activities that you're involved in, you'll be able to eliminate a lot of stress in your life and will gain back this valuable time.
3. Your home is not the exact style that you would prefer.
You made some compromises in regards to style when purchasing your existing home. While you've been able to make some cosmetic changes such as updating the kitchen cabinets to better appeal to your taste, you can't give your home an overall architectural facelift. However, by going the custom home building route, you can build exactly what you want from the ground up.
4. Your current home just doesn't feel like home.
Regardless of the improvements that you've made to your current home, it still just doesn't feel like home. Maybe this is because you feel that you've had little say in any of the design elements of your home. A home is a reflection of who you are and should show glimpses of your personality. When you have an opportunity to go the custom home building route, you can incorporate details from your wish list into the design, such as ample storage, an open floor plan for entertaining, and a spacious master bedroom on the main floor.
If you can relate to any of these symptoms, it's worth your while to explore the custom home building process.
