Are you debating the merits of building a new custom home versus buying a pre-existing property?

With the current real estate market conditions in northern Utah, the financial advantages of a new build are just one of the many benefits a custom home can offer. Finding a pre-owned house that checks all the boxes on your must-have list can be difficult – if not impossible – to accomplish. And, even if you do find a property that works for your family, you’re likely to find yourself in a bidding war with other interested buyers.

Before you make your choice, consider these top benefits of building a custom home.

No. 1: Everything Will Be to Your Specification

Maybe you loved the countertops in your last house but, in exchange, you had to put up with flooring that you really didn’t care for. Or maybe your family has been coping with insufficient closet space, bathrooms or garage room. You won’t have to worry about any of that when you build a new home, as you’ll be able to design the house of your dreams.

No. 2: You’ll Get a Builder’s Warranty

In Utah, custom home builders are required to provide a full warranty to every buyer. And that means that you won’t have to worry about paying for repairs, no matter what goes wrong. Simply pick up the phone and call your builder’s warranty department to request service.

No. 3: You Won’t Inherit Anyone’s Problems

Buying a pre-owned house is very much like buying a used car, in that you inherit the previous owner’s problems along with their mess. With all new systems and finishes, you won’t have to do any maintenance, cosmetic repairs or lift a finger to clean away the remnants of the previous occupants. As for repairing or replacing the roof, furnace, AC, etc., you won’t even have to think about these headaches for years or even decades.

No. 4: You’ll Realize Maximum Return on Investment

New houses provide maximum value and return on investment (ROI), as compared to homes that are older and potentially located in less desirable areas. And, because new houses are extremely energy-efficient, you’ll save money every month on your utility bills, as compared to an older property. In many cases, lenders offer more favorable loan terms for new builds, potentially saving you even more money.

No. 5: You Get to Choose Your Custom Home Builder
