3 Advantages of Building a Custom Home

By | Home Maintenance, News - Company | No Comments

Thinking of Building a Custom Home?

There are many reasons to build your brand-new custom home rather than buy an existing home, but we’ve summed up three huge benefits of building your own custom dream home with us. To Van Manna Homes, “custom” means our team works one on one with you to make sure your home fits your lifestyle so you get exactly what you want and more.

1. It’s Custom
The title says it all. The main advantage to building a custom home is that it is customized to exactly what YOU want to make it your dream home. What are the chances of finding your dream home – the EXACT home you want – on the market? Slim. When you choose to build a custom home with Van Manna Homes, you have input in every aspect of the building process; we work one on one with you so your home is perfect to you. You could buy a home on the market that you LIKE, but chances are you will end up renovating or upgrading the home to make it a home that you LOVE, which can add up quickly and end up being quite costly. You get exactly what you want – no ifs ands or buts. Your custom home should be unique to you and your family; a place designed and built specifically for you, where you create new memories and traditions over the years.

2. Low Maintenance
Another huge advantage to building a custom home is that everything is NEW! All the materials and appliances will be brand new, and our team uses the most cutting edge building methods and up to date safety codes. A custom-built Van Manna home is worth every penny spent upfront; it prevents you from spending money on costly renos and improvements down the road. When buying an existing house, there is always the uncertainty of the state of the home, whether that is the condition of the original foundation, structural integrity, or quality of the materials and appliances originally used. When building a brand-new home with us, you also have the option to build energy efficiently and use materials that will save you tons of money in the long run. Building a custom home means less time spent on maintenance/retrofitting and more time enjoying your home!

3. Choice of Location
A huge benefit to building a custom home is that you can build it wherever you want! There’s no need to sacrifice an ideal neighborhood or a school district which you likely would when buying a home on the market. Location is everything! Whether you choose to be a little more secluded for maximum privacy, you want to enjoy all the amenities of a trendy inner city neighborhood, or anything in between – the choice is yours, and there is something very satisfying about that. At Van Manna Homes, we can build your new home OR if you are already in a location you love, we can renovate your current home to make it exactly what you want.

The Van Manna Homes team always provides one-on-one service and we are devoted to perfecting your custom home. Ready to build your dream home? Contact us today!
