If you are considering building a home, you might find yourself feeling overwhelmed at the thought of the cost, decisions, and time required when working with a custom home builder. But, you also like the idea of having your family’s lifestyle and personality influence the design and layout of your new home. Situated between the ease of purchasing a move-in ready home and the complexity of designing one from scratch, a semi-custom home offers ‘the best of both worlds’.
Choosing the Design That Fits Your Family
Semi-custom home builders offer a library of designs from which to choose, and then provide the ability to make limited changes to the layout to more closely fit your family. Once the design is selected, you customize the materials and finishes used in the building of the home. Semi-custom home builders offer a wide variety of items and styles to choose from that are most popular with buyers, exhibit the highest quality, and offer energy efficiency. The design team’s purpose is to help you create the home you envision.
Save Time and Money
A semi-custom home offers several ways for you to save money and time while building your new home. When selecting your semi-custom home, the land comes with the price of the home, which eliminates the costly and lengthy process of identifying and purchasing a lot for your home. Moreover, because you are selecting from a predetermined inventory of layouts, your new home can be designed, costed out, and constructed much faster—and, therefore, at a lower expense to you—than that of a custom home builder. Additionally, the builders ability to buy materials in bulk also allows for lower costs.
Show Your Character
The design team for your home builder can work with you to ensure that your vision for your new home encompasses your personality and character. You have the ability to select special features, a variety of floorings, and fixtures for your home that create the overall expression of who your family is and the lifestyle you enjoy.
Enjoy the Community
Home builders often build semi-custom homes within a defined community that provides many added benefits to your new home that you cannot find anywhere else. These communities typically offer amenities that you and your family can enjoy, including dedicated green space and parks, club houses, pools, and homeowner activities and events to build a sense of community.
