Custom Built Homes Offer More Value

St Augustine Custom Homes

In today’s seller’s market, trying to buy a resale home makes the process of buying a home even more stressful than usual. Buying a home is one of the more difficult situations in life, so why not choose instead to build your own brand new home where you don’t have to deal with searching for an acceptable home when you can build your dream home. Glenn Layton Homes, a custom home builder in St Augustine FL can make your dream a reality.

Aside from the stress of trying to buy a resale home, there are a number of other reasons why a custom home is a better value and choice. One is the quality of the build. Custom homes are built with the latest in building practices and materials, resulting in a home that better suits today’s buyers and is also more energy efficient, leading to a home that is more comfortable and helps save you money on energy bills. Older homes are often drafty, with poor insulation, outdated windows, and appliances that use more energy than necessary.

Plus, with a brand new home, you don’t have to worry about redecorating or even more drastic changes, because the house is already built and decorated according to your tastes from day one. Many people don’t factor in the extra costs involved in updating a resale home. Those costs can be simple ones, such as repainting, but they can also be major ones, such as replacing an outdated kitchen or fixing faulty, aging wiring, or even replacing a leaky roof. With a resale home, you never know what problem may come up as appliances and more age and fail. This often leads to costs that not all home owners are able to afford.

On the other hand, with a brand new home, you have everything new so there’s less risk of problems. Should there be a problem, you have a warranty that will cover most major issues. Warranties typically cover the exterior – windows, roof, siding, etc. – for up to 10 years and the interior for one to two years.

As mentioned previously, new homes are also built with today’s owner in mind. You’ll find more outlets, larger windows, seamless indoor/outdoor living areas, open plans, walk-in pantries, spa-like bathrooms, patios and decks that are like second living rooms, and you’ll definitely find smarthome technology in our homes. Ever since we build the Smart Home for HGTV back in 2013, we’ve continued to keep up to date with the latest changes and updates and have made smarthome technology a standard part of our home package, adding to your home’s value, while also adding to its ability to help save you money, make your home more convenient and comfortable, and also keep you safer. Older homes require a lot of expensive work to add in the kind of technology we build into our homes from the very start.

These are just a few of the reasons why buying a brand new home from a custom home builder in St Augustine FL like us is a great idea. We will work with you every step of the way, keeping your budget in mind, while also keeping  your dreams in mind to help you create your ideal home. From the day you move in, it will be what you chose, not what someone else chose and you can feel at home much quicker, knowing you were the one who decided everything from flooring to finishes and so much more. This new home is uniquely you, which is a fantastic value that you won’t find in any other resale home.
