Building Designer Sunshine Coast

Deciding whether to build or buy your new home can be a tough decision. There is a lot to consider and you want to be sure you are making the right choice for you, your family and your future.

There are many reasons why choosing to build your home is a much better option than buying an existing property not only right now but in the long run as well. Here are just a few of these reasons.

Size of land

When you build your own house, you have much more creative control than you would if buying an existing home, especially when it comes to the size of the land. When buying an existing home, it is possible that the home takes up a considerable amount of the block, meaning that you have little room to landscape and design to fit your won tastes. When building your own home, you get to decide how much outdoor living and entertaining space you have as well as the layout of the house and where your windows face.

Design features

Building your home means that you get to pick and choose the fixtures that you love. Ever been to a house with an annoyingly small or impractical sink, or a certain fixture that you wished you could change? When building you can design the features of your home specific to your needs and your preferences. It is easier to design a house or find a floorplan to fit your needs than find an existing built house that does.

Ongoing costs

Buying an older existing home may incur many ongoing costs. For example, you may need to upgrade fixtures and fittings within the home or have to add modern features. When building you are getting a brand-new house built to the highest standard. Newly built homes also are built to higher energy efficiency standards than older homes. This means that when building a home, you will overtime save money in electricity costs and can be sure that nothing will have to be added or replaced for many years to come, if ever.
