Buying a home is easily the front-runner for the most important financial investment you will ever make. Each day, hundreds or even thousands of homes go up for sale, giving buyers a myriad of choices. While purchasing pre-built real estate may seem like the quickest, easiest and most cost effective route to purchasing a new home, it may not be your best option.
Here are just a few perks of custom building your dream home.
You get to choose the builder. Choosing the builder allows you to ensure that the vision for your custom built home is understood, expectations are met and at the end of the day you truly have your dream home – down to the very last detail. Researching builders allows you to choose one whose values, style and price range line up with yours. Here at Pioneer Log Homes our team of world class designers and log home builders will ensure that your dreams become a reality.
Your can control your environmental impact. While mass produced homes are required to meet certain building codes, their appliances, windows, and doors may not be the best in terms of energy efficiency. Further, older homes may have an even greater negative impact on the environment depending on which upgrades they’ve had. A custom built home allows you to choose the most efficient and environmentally friendly appliances, windows, doors and other home amenities from the very beginning. What’s more, you’ll save in the long run as your bills will be lower and you won’t have to incur costs associated with upgrading. The company you choose will also have a direct impact on the environment based on their environmental policies. Read more about Pioneer’s commitment to sustainable building here.
