Build Your Dream Home

Build Your Dream Home With a General Contractor

Buying a home is considered one of the greatest accomplishments one can make.  There is no better feeling than that first day of becoming a homeowner, especially when it’s a home that has been custom built from the ground up.

Let’s be real.  Building a custom home requires a truck load of money, a skilled general contractor, a clear vision, and enough patience to make it to the end.  Without one of these characteristics, you’ll feel like pulling your hair out throughout the building process.

Here are a few ways to make sure your getting the most out of your custom built home:

Due Dilligence

Doing your due diligence is the first, and most important step you can make going with a custom built home.  Securing the right loan officers, Investing in the right property, and interviewing several contractors are essential in successfully building the home of your dreams.  Without thoroughly doing your due diligence, you may run into legal issues, or you might even hire a general contractor who can’t get the job done right.

Meet With Architects

Whether you have a vision already, or your mind is a blank slate, you’ll want to meet with reputable architects to go over blue prints, and come up with a plan that fits the lot that is being built on.  An experienced architect will be able to tell you what’s possible, and things that are not likely to be able to be included in the custom home.  They are also great at maximizing space, and will be able to take your vision and improve upon it.

Hire a Moving Company

If you want to make less work for yourself, then you’ll want to make sure that you have hired a moving company to move your stuff from the old location to your new home.  Most professional movers are experienced in boxing, packing, loading, relocating, and unloading so that you don’t have to stress about moving any of your items yourself.  Having the right moving company on your team will have you quickly settled into your new home once you get the keys.

Upgrade Your Home

Add Value To Your Home With Upgrades

Want to quickly add value to your home?

The obvious answer for everyone would be yes.  The best way to add value to your home is by making upgrades to all the right areas of the home, both inside and out.  The main reason why you would want to do this is because you are considering putting your house on the market in the near future.

You’ll want to get the most out of selling your home, and that’s done by making some changes prior to putting it on the market.  Here are a few areas that you can upgrade to instantly add value and make your home more appealing to potential buyers.

Kitchen

Everyone loves a beautiful kitchen, especially potential buyers.  Kitchens are the main feature of the home and are usually the deciding factor in whether or not someone puts in an offer.  Kitchens that sell today are ones that are wide open with spacious counters and are convenient for cooking and accessing all appliances in the kitchen.

Master Bathroom

Although everyone loves a master bedroom, most people are more intrigued about the master bathroom that connects with their sleeping space.  This is a huge buying for future home owners as a master bathroom can have people fall in love with the home.

People spend a good amount of time in the master bathroom with the amount of use it gets.  Whether someone is getting ready in the mirror, taking a long warm shower, or getting down to business on the toilet, people want a spacious bathrooms with high end features.

Landscape

Didn’t think taking care of the front and back yard were an important aspect of improving value to your home?

Think again.

Let’s not forget backyards either.  A well designed backyard is another key feature in adding tremendous value and making a nice profit when reselling the home.  Backyards are for accommodating friends and family, lounging around a well lit fire pit, barbecuing on a warm summer night, and playing with  with the little ones.

A perfect backyard gives the homeowner another living space where they can spend their time outside for various reasons.
