Why You Should Have Your House Built

You have decided that, instead of looking at homes for sale, you want to build your dream home. There are several choices when it comes to buying a lot and building a home. Most people choose to hire a contractor to build a stick-built house while others prefer to purchase a modular home. There are benefits to both ways.

Here are some benefits for hiring a contractor to build you a home.

  • The price between a modular home and a stick-built home is often pretty comparable. However, stick-built homes often appraise higher so it is easier to get a mortgage loan for one.
  • Stick-built homes can often be more customizable than modular homes. You can design a house any way that you want it. The possibilities are endless!
  • Since stick-built homes are a common way to build a home, it is easy to find people who are able to build one for you. However, it is important to find the right contractor. It is also easy to find sub-contractors to put all of the finishing touches on your home.
  • With the way that your home would be built, it is not hard to make changes during the construction process. You can still be working on how the kitchen will look as the foundation is being built. Many times, you don’t have to have everything picked out at the beginning like your appliances. You have some time to figure out what you want.
  • Stick-built homes will appreciate in value so that you will make money if you ever decide to sell your house.

When you decide to build a new home, you should hire a contractor and have a stick-built home. They appraise higher and appreciate in value so you will make money when you sell it. You can also customize it even more than you can a modular home. If you are having trouble making decisions, you will have more time to make them and you can even make changes during the process.
