Building a custom home is a dream for many. Who wouldn’t want to own a beautiful house suited just to their taste? Many consider this dream to be out of reach, when in fact it is more doable than one might realize. When considering if a custom home is right for you, you likely have a list of common custom home questions. Here are the top five.
1. What Exactly Is a Custom Home?
A custom home is a new construction build that is designed to meet the owners’ preferences. It could be totally designed from scratch, but for homeowners who prefer to start with a sound and well-designed base, Viking Custom Homes offers luxury custom home floor plans that one can alter and change accordingly. We will work with you to come up with a design that suits your wants and needs.
2. Are Custom Homes More Expensive?
Many people also believe that custom homes are out of their price range, but you would be surprised. Custom homes can actually cost just about the same or less than other homes of interest on the market. At the same time, it is understood that a luxury custom home will cost more than the average house, as its materials are of higher quality. The price can range based on the size, materials, and customization of your home. It can also have a greater return on investment based on where you maximize the budget.
3. How Do I Budget for a Custom Home?
Your custom home budget will generally go into the land, the design, and the construction plus landscaping. You can set a budget based on what you would spend for a regular house, but the best way to understand the costs is to talk with a custom home building company. With a set budget from you, we will respect it and work with you to create a home that works for you.
4. Do I Need My Own Land Lot to Start?
If you have a plot of land already, Viking Custom Homes can work with you to build there. If you do not have land, no problem! We are always searching for new homesites and will work with you to find a prime location given your work, school, and amenity needs and preferences.
5. How Long Does It Take to Build a Custom Home?
It typically takes between 7 months to 2 years to build a new home. Building typically takes less than a year. The custom home journey begins when you seek out a reliable company of your choice, work out the finances and permits, find land, and finalize the house design. At Viking Custom Homes, we make the process smooth and straightforward. Chat with us for more information!
