Building a Custom Home vs Buying

Custom Home Builder

In many cases, people often find it difficult to decide between building a custom home vs buying an existing home. At Alderidge Construction, we understand how important it is to have a home that is not only beautiful but will also function well for your family for years to come. That is why we offer custom home building services for people who want to build their dream home and renovation services for people who want to turn an existing house into their dream home.

Benefits of Building a Custom Home

While building a custom home does not offer the same convenience as buying an existing house, building a custom home will allow you to get exactly what you want in a house. Deciding to build a new house will also allow you to ensure that your home is better for you, as it will be built to meet new energy codes and standards for heating, ventilation, and cooling and you will not have to worry about asbestos, lead paint, or mold.

Even though building a new home can cost more than buying an existing home, building a new home can make it easier to recoup your investment. This is because newer homes can often sell for more money and will require fewer repairs and less maintenance.

Benefits of Buying an Existing Home

The two main benefits of buying an existing home are convenience and cost. Once you have been pre-approved for a mortgage, a qualified real estate agent can help streamline the process, making it easier for you to pick out a home and put in an offer. Even though the process of buying a new home involves a range of different steps, the convenience of being able to move in almost right away is often compelling enough for people to choose buying a home over building one. Another benefit of buying a house is that it is easier to purchase an existing home in an already established neighbourhood close to your work, school, friends, or family.
