Everybody dreams of a home that’s being designed for their unique taste and lifestyle. Custom homes not only reflect your style and preferred aesthetics, but they are also made to make life easier, even in the smallest of ways. The idea of having a custom home is great, it is your dream home after all, but there are a number of myths tied to building a custom home that has deterred many consumers from pursuing them. Most people think that the building process for a custom home is very long and generally more difficult than traditional homes. Below we have debunked some of the most common myths associated with custom homes.
1. Designing a Home is Hard
The idea of a custom home is intimidating for a lot of homeowners because they’re afraid they will have to do the design process alone. You can be as involved or uninvolved as you’d like during the design process. The process requires no designing experience from the homeowner. All the owner has to do is have an idea of what they want the finished product to look like, and the architect or home designer will create the plan on how to make their vision a reality.
2. Lots of Hidden Costs
Another reason that homeowners shy away from custom homes is that they fear they will end up spending much more than they intended. They are afraid that their home designer will dupe them into choosing things that they can’t afford, and will end up in a massive amount of debt trying to bring their dream home to life. While there may be some dishonest builders out there, at Virtual Homes, we pride ourselves on having an honest and reliable team. We always explain to our customers exactly what it is that they’re paying for and what they can expect the finished product to be like.
3. Custom Homes Take Too Long to Complete
Like any other building project, there are some things that can happen like bad weather that you can’t control and may set the project back. With the advancements in modern technology, building a custom home actually takes the same amount of time as it takes to build any other home. The only difference is that the home is built based on your exact specifications.
4. Custom Homes Are More Complex and Complicated
Building a custom home should be an exciting process; not a stressful one. While there are lots of decisions to be made by the homeowner, each decision will lead to the completion of your dream home. At Virtual Homes, we want to take the stress out of the process and help you navigate your options by giving you the pros and cons so that you can make the most informed decision.
