There comes a time in your life when you might ask yourself, “Is it time to build a new home?” It can be a tough decision. Your current home may be “good enough.” Or you look around and there are some things that you would change to make it more livable for you and your family.
Building a home is much more time-consuming than buying an existing home. You’d need to have meetings with the builder. Make inspections. Change things. Pick out cabinets, sinks, countertops, flooring. It could take 6 months to a year.
But, if you truly want the “ideal home,” then consider building. You’ll have to make up your mind to be patient and devote the time it will take for you to work with the builder through the entire process.
And, if you like the home you are living in now but would like to change a few things, you might want to consider “modifying” it. Maybe you would like to add a family room. Increase the size of the garage. Add a second story. Change the kitchen layout or add a fireplace. One of the things to consider is the “market value” placed on your home improvements.
