Buying vs Building a New Home

Should You Buy or Build Your New Home?

It is part of the American dream- building your own home. Designing it just the way you want it. While it sounds nice, it may be just that- a dream. There are clear disadvantages to building your own home over buying an existing structure, but here are a few pros and cons of each.

Time

Buying a home takes time. Building a home takes a lot more. If you are not willing or able to take on a full-time job of designing, managing construction, handling contractors, negotiating material prices, and more, building a home may not be for you.

Experience

You really need to know what you are doing to build your own home. It is not enough that you helped repair your stairs or put up some drywall. Setting the foundation and building a sound structure that meets building codes is much more complicated. If you do not have professional construction experience, you may not be the best construction manager for the project.

Money

If you are sitting on a fortune and you need to spend it fast, building your own home may be the right decision for you. For those of us normal folks, building a home just is not in the budget. It is much cheaper to buy an existing home than to pay for construction. If you have had any experience in building, you know that the project will always cost more than you think.

Tell Me What You Want

The real benefit of building your own home is that you get exactly what you want. Existing structures are always limited in one way or another. Perhaps the kitchen is too small and cannot be expanded, or a beautiful four-bedroom home only has one bathroom. Whatever it is that you want, you can design it and build it.
