If you have a plot of land and are wondering what to do with it, this is a great time to turn your dream home into reality. Whatever your reason, it may be something you’ve been dreaming about for years, so why not get started?
Every step of the custom home design process—from choosing your floor plan to selecting your interior features—is exciting and we can’t wait to help you get started with this adventure.
Unlike moving into an established home, building your dream home does take time, effort, and a lot of planning. Here are six factors that tip the scale in your favor, making now an ideal time to get started.
Made For You
The most common reason to build your own home is because it is designed specifically for you and your family. From the color of your front door to the design of your window panes, everything in your home is customized to suit your preferences.
Your home’s layout is also decided based on your family’s needs. How many bedrooms do you prefer? Should you go for a single-story or multi-story house? Do you want a garage? What about the kitchen? Do you want a separate laundry room? No matter what you desire, we have a floor plan to fit your needs.
At Madison Homebuilders, we offer over 30 floor plans to suit your lifestyle, or we are happy to consider your custom plan. We can build any of our house plans as designed, or you can customize your favorite Madison plan to suit your needs. With our staff of in-house draftsmen, you don’t have the added expense of hiring an architect to draw your plans, and there is no added cost to you to modify any of our plans. Want to move a room, change walls or reconfigure the exterior? No problem! Getting your plans just the way you want them is just one of the great services we offer our clients.
While designing the layout, remember to involve the other members of your family and consider their valuable inputs too. After all, you will all be sharing this new space together and it needs to be comfortable for the whole family.
Pay For What You Want
Why pay for space and home features you don’t want or need when you can build a custom home that suits your lifestyle and paycheck. With a custom home, you have the chance to get things just the way you want them. You structure your space to work for your family and lifestyle instead of changing your lifestyle to fit the space.
But, can you afford to build a home right now? While custom designs often come with significant costs, at Madison Homebuilders we make building your own home – on your lot, affordable and the timing couldn’t be better.
Rising Mortgage Rates
Mortgage rates greatly impact home buying decisions. When the rates are up, your payments increase. Given the recent trend, mortgage and construction loan interest rates are rising and are only expected to rise further. As per the Mortgage Bankers Association, the 30-year fixed rate mortgage will be 4.6% by the middle of 2018 and 4.8% at the end of the year.
So, if you are planning to finally build that new home on your lot, there is no better time than now to lock in a low rate before they rise again. Moreover, Madison Homebuilders guarantee real savings. Because we build your home on the strength of our company, you won’t need a costly construction loan and you’ll save up to 2% of the cost of your home in closing costs.
Lower Maintenance Costs
Existing homes are naturally subject to more wear and tear and can be costly to maintain as they age. Conversely, when you invest in a new home, your maintenance issues should be few and far between. There is nothing better than a new home with brand new everything! To top things off, every Madison home comes with a 10-year home buyers warranty.
The quality of your new home will largely depend on the quality of the home builder you choose to make your dream a reality. Do your research, ask around, and make sure you select a company that has a good reputation. You want to choose a builder that has experience building the kind of home you have in mind. What are the standard features that come with every home they build? Is granite standard or an upgrade? Do they offer quality appliances? What about flooring options?
