Why Building Your Home Is The Smarter Option.
If you have yet to get to get onto the property ladder, then you have a few difficult decisions to make ahead of you. You could buy one of the many thousands of homes that are built every year all across Australia that all look exactly the same and lack imagination when it comes to their architecture. If this is the kind of home that you want to live in for the next 10 to 15 years then that is entirely up to you. You may find yourself coming home in the evenings when the sun has set and walking up the driveway of your neighbour’s house because you thought it was yours. This is typical of these mass produced properties because every single one looks the same.
You could take the other option and talk to a reputable builder in construction and speak to them about the opportunities to build your own home from scratch. There are many construction companies out there that are more than able to create the home of your dreams and to stay well within the budget that you have laid out. Now that I have planted the seeds in your mind, maybe you would like to learn more about the benefits of building your own home as opposed to buying one.
- It’s exactly how you want it – When mass produced housing developments are created, you have absolutely no input into how the house is built and so it isn’t customised to your needs at all. The beauty about custom homes is that your building a home that reflects your personality perfectly and it lets people know who you really are. You will be creating not only a property but a home for your partner and for the kids that you’re going to have in the future.
- It will save you money – Many people wrongfully assume that if they buy a property from one of the many homebuilders that it’s going to save them money over the long term. The opposite is actually through and the average house price all across Australia is almost $500,000 and you could build your own home for less than this and it would be much better.
If you are concerned about your carbon footprint then you have total control over the building of your home and so you can make it more energy efficient and this will help to reduce your overall carbon footprint. You will be getting the home of your dreams and you would be doing your bit for the earth.
