A major benefit to buying a new home with WestWind Homes is you get to pick the perfect community. If you have to start by looking for an existing home that meets all your needs and preferences, location often takes a back seat.
When building with WestWind Homes, you can put some time into thinking about what the best school system might be. You can find a location closer to work that is still close to family. You can find in a particular part of town that you and your family enjoy. It’s really up to you because, at this point, all you have to think about is where you want to be located.
Avoiding Hidden Problems and Costs
Some will say that building custom costs a little more, and it can, but it can also save you a lot of money, time, and trouble in the long-run. Rather than immediately making a list of a dozen expensive projects you’ll need to do over the next decade, you can start with something you’re already satisfied with. You’re also not paying for all the items and upgrades that were added for the original owners but that you don’t like.
Not only that, but pre-existing homes often have hidden problems lurking under the surface. Maybe mold has been building for decades in the crawl space, and the inspector missed it. Maybe pests like insects and rodents have taken up residence somewhere unseen. Maybe the water heater, or HVAC system, or roof, or foundation, or any number of other things are on their last legs. With a custom, new home, you avoid all this baggage and get to start fresh.
