There comes a time for us all when we want to get our own home and we don’t want to rent anymore. You are paying rent to your landlord and this equivalent money could be paying for a mortgage on a home that you actually own. However, as you look around for your new home, you never seem to find the right home that has all the things that you want in a house and a lot of them have all the things that you don’t want in a home. We all have a picture in our heads of the perfect home, but it seems to be unattainable. However, have you considered building your own home and building it the way that you want it to look?
That dream home will only ever be possible if you decide to build it yourself and there are a number of reasons why doing that would be a great idea. Let’s look at just some of the benefits to building your own home.
- Customise it To Suit Your Tastes – Because you are in charge, you get to choose everything about your new home. You get to choose what size it is going to be, you get to decide on the number of bedrooms and what size they will be. You get to choose the stone and you get to choose whom you think is the best home builder in Auckland. You want it to be a two story home? OK, that’s possible. You want a winding staircase just like in the movies? That’s definitely possible and on and on it goes. If your budget will allow it, you can do anything you want when building your own home.
- Energy Efficient – You are starting from scratch, so you get to choose all your appliances within your home and you get to choose the most energy efficient building materials as well. All the appliances will be brand new and so will be working at their optimum which means that you get smaller electricity and gas bills. All the new, modern air conditioners, boilers and other appliances use much less energy than their former counterparts and because they are new, there will be less service charges required and that will save you money also.
- More Affordable Than You May Think – Remember, building your own home means that you get to set the budget and there is no middle man hoovering up the profits from selling the building as would be typical in the standard home purchase from a building contractor. You get to work with the builder and together you decide what is best and what will keep you within the budget that you have both agreed upon. The builder quotes you a price for the new build and so there shouldn’t be any hidden costs further down the line. You stick to the budget and you get the exact home that you have always wanted.
Be sure to get the right builder and make sure that you trust their decision and together, you will build the home that you have only dreamed about before.
