Design and Build vs. Buying Pre-designed and Built Houses
So you decided that it’s finally time to have a new house. That’s great! If you’re like most people, it’s the realization of a life-long dream.
Now, you’re presented with two options:
Should you hire an architect-contractor to design and build your dream home?
Or do you move in to a pre-designed and built house?
Pros of Pre-designed and Built Houses
It’s usually a faster way to realize your dream of owning a home. You can easily find a subdivision with units that are ready for moving in. This is because these houses are usually pre-designed and built by developers with the purpose of selling them out fast.
It also takes out the back-and-forth process between the architect and the client. When designing a home, there are comprehensive meetings that tackle every nook and cranny of the home. This can take weeks. This is why pre-designed homes are faster. They’re already designed for you.
There are also some instances wherein they’re cheaper. But make sure to check the materials used. There’s a chance that they used low-end materials to keep the cost down and make the prices more attractive. You should also consider the location.
If you do your homework well, you may find a beautiful and high-quality pre-designed and built home. It’s not exactly the dream home that you had in mind, but it’s still your own home.
Why Go for the Design and Build Route?
Owning a home is going to be one of the biggest, if not the biggest investment you’ll make in your life. Doesn’t it make sense to make sure that you’ll invest in a home that you’ve exactly dreamed about?
Sure, it may take longer, but our clients will tell you that it’s an enjoyable process. The design phase is one of the best parts of this project. From the first meeting when you share how you want your dream home to look like to the final meeting when you approve of the design. The excitement is immeasurable.
Besides, what’s a few days or weeks making sure that you have the design of your dream home?
In addition, you can have a unique home. A lot of subdivisions, especially the low-end and mid-end ones, have similar-looking homes. Experienced developers will put out amazing designs, but if you want a house design that you can proudly call your own, then you need to hire an architect that can put the unique design in your mind into paper.
If you’re on a budget, you’ll be happy to know that you have options – from low-end to high-end. An experienced architect-contractor will provide you with options that can make the price lower or higher. On that note, you’d appreciate the fact that you have options – for parts as small as the towel rack to be used to the type of roofing.
If you have to pay more, then you’ll soon find out that it’s worth it once you see the home of your dreams.
