Are you excited at the thought of building your new dream home, however are still weighing up the pros and cons of whether to go down the project home build route, or custom building a home that is uniquely designed for you and your lifestyle.
Firstly, let’s look at the difference between the two options:
A project home is sometimes referred to as a ‘cookie cutter’ home. Home Display Villages represent a number of project home builders, who offer a range of pre-designed plans, based on the same footprint, with a range of standardised inclusions.
A custom home is a uniquely designed home, which is tailor-made specifically to the individual needs of the client, with consideration to the characteristics of the block of land, orientation, privacy and lifestyle.
Now that you understand the difference between the two options; if you are serious about creating a dream home that is designed uniquely for you – a quality custom built home is the way to go!
The key benefits are:
- From the first point of contact, your builder will strive to develop a personal rapport with you, to fully understand your ideas, expectations and most importantly your budget. They will offer suggestions, alternatives and up to date design innovations to maximise your investment.
- As every block of land has its own unique characteristics, (some of which can pose the need for innovative problem solving), a custom home builder and designer will collaborate to come up with the best design solutions to meet your needs.
- Create your own floor plan, style and select inclusions that reflect your personality and style. Financially investing in a quality custom built home is a prudent capital investment, versus the risk of investing in a home that is identified as a stock standard design dotted throughout your suburb.
- Communication and flexibility – a custom home builder ensures that a high level of quality control and monitoring is maintained at all times. Regular contact and on-site meetings throughout the build process is paramount to client satisfaction. Whereas with a project home build, due to the high volume of homes being managed at the same time, impromptu communication or onsite access can be difficult to arrange at short notice.
