Clearly, we’re big fans of choosing to build an Asheville custom home as opposed to purchasing one that might not fit all your needs well. But we understand that this may be one of the biggest investments our clients undertake so we’re always eager to steer them towards making sound choices about their finances during the process. With unlimited options along the way, there are a lot of things you can spend money on while building your custom home, but they’re not all created equally. We have some suggestions about areas of the project we think are more beneficial to spend money on and some that are less of a priority. These ideas are not only useful in guaranteeing that your home will stand out, but they’re also a huge part of what will help you get the best return on your investment. We get into those categories in today’s blog!
Frequently, we see clients opt for purchasing the least expensive lot they can find with the intention of focusing their funds on the actual building of the house. We always recommend against this! If you can afford a better lot, you should always opt for that instead. Buying a better lot to build your house on will help tremendously when it comes to property value. If you choose an up-and-coming neighborhood or a lot with beautiful landscaping and acreage, you’re starting off on the right foot with the knowledge that you’re bound to get a great return on your investment, should you ever want it! If you need to sell your home in a few years, this will also help to speed up the process as potential buyers are sure to be more interested in ideal or beautiful locations.
The Visualizing Phase
You’ve bought a beautiful lot and you’re ready to buy the building material, right? Not quite…First, you’ll want to invest in a skilled architect and an interior designer that understands your aesthetic. It’s always a good idea to invest in the visualizing phase! The people that work with you to help you dream up and design your home can help you finalize details, brainstorm useful additions, and help pinpoint what you’re really looking for. Beyond the look and feel of the home, these professionals can actually have an immense impact on your day-to-day by designing rooms and spaces in a functional, efficient manner.
The Heart of the Home
Whether or not you like to cook, you have to eat. So why not invest in a great kitchen? This is one room you’re guaranteed to use several times a day and having a luxury, beautiful, and effective kitchen design will make your life so much better. Furthermore, when potential buyers are looking at new homes, the kitchen can be the deciding factor on whether or not they choose to make an offer. Out of all the rooms in a home, we recommend putting the strongest emphasize (and investment) here in order to set yourself up for a great living experience and increasing property value.
