Why Build a Custom Home?

Purchasing a new home is an exciting moment in a person’s life. Whether it’s a first home or dream home, the housing market is full of options: fixer-uppers, modular homes and custom built properties. If you’ve decided on creating your dream house, here are 10 reasons why buying a truly custom home is a great investment.

1) A HOME FOR THE FUTURE

One of the most common reasons people move is to accommodate growing families or empty nests. Your home can be designed to serve you for decades, creating a living space that fits your needs today, while taking in account whatever the future may hold. Whether you are planning on expanding your family, needing space for work, or anticipating your family’s needs in future years.

2) LOWER MONTHLY ENERGY BILLS

Purchasing an existing home can come with many challenges. A common issue with existing homes is updating appliances, heat and cooling systems and fixtures to be energy efficient. Those upgrades can get pricey and may not always be outright apparent to homebuyers. A custom built home can provide homeowners with the opportunity to factor in the latest energy efficient technologies and substantially lower your monthly energy bills.

3) LAYOUT TO FIT YOUR LIFESTYLE

Whether your passion is entertaining family and friends or having space to relax by yourself, a custom home’s layout gives you the option to choose what’s best for you. Open concept layouts for living rooms, dining areas and the kitchen have become a popular design for homes. But you can also work with Teakwood Enterprises to design space for a home office, cozy living room or made to measure storage areas — whatever your home needs. Teakwood Enterprises can provide you with 3D renderings of your new custom home, helping you visualize and approve your space.

4) HOST WITH THE MOST

Sometimes, it’s more fun to stay in. Especially when your home has the space to host all your friends and family. The ability to comfortably entertain guests can have a huge impact on a homeowners’ quality of life. A custom built home can be sure to highlight your hosting strengths. Enjoy the outdoors and accommodate for a custom patio or deck. Or bring the party inside custom kitchen and dining room space.

5) DOWN TO THE DETAILS

Custom homes are a true expression of the homeowners. From the foundation to the doorknobs and handles.  With Teakwood Enterprises, our clients can start with a blank sheet of paper and we can help them design their perfect home. We work closely with our vendors, subcontractors and employees to be sure our clients are happy with every inch of their new home.

6) TECHNOLOGY IN THE HOME

Being “smart” isn’t just for phones anymore. With technology advancing more and more, there are plenty of ways to keep your home up to date. Custom building of your home can integrate smart appliances, home security and the latest tech trends right into the design of your home.

7) BUILT WHERE YOU WANT IT

The number one rule is real estate is location, location, location. But sometimes, your dream address and dream home aren’t the same. Custom building your home gives you the chance to get the perfect house exactly where you want it. With 30 years experience, Teakwood Enterprises can design and build any style of custom home.

8) AN INVESTMENT THAT GOES A LONG WAY

Homeownership is a great investment and can grow exponentially in a good market. That being said, when you’re ready to sell, having a custom built home can make your property a more attractive listing. If you’re not interested in selling, think of a custom home as a personal investment: something you designed and created with help from top experts and quality builders that will serve you for years.

9) LOWER MAINTENANCE COSTS

Buying an existing home can feel like a gamble, specifically when it comes to unforeseen maintenance pitfalls. Problems with the foundation, roof or even home layout can present themselves years after the paperwork is signed. What you save in buying an existing home might cost you in improvements and Building a custom home ensures you are investing in a new home with state of the art building materials and quality features. We help bridge the gap between design and construction, working closely with our suppliers and contractors. So if something breaks or needs repair, you’ll know exactly how to get the materials you need and who to call for repairs.

10) OPPORTUNITY TO CHOOSE YOUR BUILDER

From a 200-square foot tiny home to a 12,000-foot custom home, Teakwood Enterprises can help design and produce a custom home that is personal and unique to the homeowner.
