There’s no one-size-fits-all answer, but the reality is that it may be best for you to buy a custom home in Middle Tennessee than it would to buy a preexisting home.

6 Advantages to Buying a Custom Home

While some advantages are obvious (you get to choose your own floor plan and home style), there are a handful of other advantages to buying a custom home that many people don’t consider.

  1. Buying a custom home could be more cost-effective in the short-term than buying a preexisting home. Home building contractors frequently offer discounts or give you negotiating room that could shave several thousand dollars off the price of your custom home.
  2. Everything is new – and covered by warranties. When you know that everything in your custom-built home is brand new, you’ll avoid being hit by hidden costs emerging from unseen structural damage, deteriorated electrical wiring or a corroded plumbing system that desperately needs to be replaced.
  3. You’ll probably save money each month. Having a new furnace, new central air conditioning and new appliances in a custom home means you could save more than $1000 in utility bills each year. Alternately, pre-existing homes come with used HVAC equipment that could last another ten years—or fall apart in six months and cost you thousands to replace them.
  4. Your custom home will be smarter than its preexisting counterparts are. You’ll be able to integrate the latest-and-greatest smart technology into your brand-new custom home.
  5. Your home will be truly unique. When you create a custom home to your specifications, nobody else in the world has a home like yours.
  6. Your custom home is already up-to-date. You don’t have to worry about your custom home being non-compliant with building, environmental and safety codes. Professionally licensed homebuilders have to comply with the latest codes and ensure your home is safe – and there’s no guarantee on preexisting homes.
