Arguably the biggest benefit to designing a custom home is that every aspect of the property is tailored to your unique wants and needs. However, if you’re looking to preserve the long-term value of your home and potentially sell down the line, you’ll need to balance your family’s desires with choices that will entice other homeowners in the future.
Luckily, you can still make architectural and design decisions that are perfect for you while maximizing the home’s value in other ways. From deciding on the perfect location to choosing the right design/build firm for your needs, these tips will help you get the most out of your custom dream home without compromising.
Choose a Prime Location
When it comes to building custom homes, the old adage “location, location, location” is key. Investing in a prime location will ensure that your home retains its value over time and remains a solid investment for you and any future homeowners.
Look for locations with easy access to grocery stores, shopping or other amenities, as well as stable neighborhoods with good schools. Location can also go beyond the neighborhood your home is in. Location impacts other aspects of home value, such as square footage, lot size and floor plan, so choose your home location with these factors in mind.
Have a Full Home History
Having a complete and accurate home history is essential for ensuring the long-term value of your custom home. Luckily, as the first and only owner of the property, you’re already starting ahead of most property owners.
To ensure that you maximize your home’s value through home history details, make sure that all information, such as original architectural design plans and contractor’s invoices, are well documented and stored in one place. This will make it easier to troubleshoot any issues that may arise when selling and will also give potential buyers a full picture of the history of the home.
Spend Your Design/Build Budget Efficiently
When it comes to custom homes, budgeting is everything. Make sure you understand exactly what you are getting for your money and look for areas where you can save without sacrificing quality. You want to make sure that your home is built to last and that all the materials used are of the highest quality.
Building a custom home also allows you the unique opportunity to optimize your spending and your home design at any point. Many home construction companies will tell you if one aspect of the home construction was able to be performed under budget so you can allocate that money to a higher-end finish or additional feature elsewhere in the home, helping to boost the home’s value for the same final budget.
Use Top-Tier Luxury Home Builders
After choosing a location and budgeting your finances, one of the most important steps in the process is choosing a qualified custom home design expert who can bring your dream to life. By investing in a premier design/build firm, you’ll receive their expertise in how to maximize the long-term value of your home as well as their design and workmanship capabilities.
When searching for the right architectural design firm, make sure to research the builder’s reputation and experience in building luxury custom homes. You should also note their track record of delivering custom homes on time and on budget to ensure that your money is maximized.
