4 Signs You’re Ready for a Custom Home

cal-755-1stave-049
Do you sometimes fantasize about that custom home that you’ve been wanting all your life? The home that you’ve been dreaming about for quite some time? The one with the chef’s kitchen, the extra bedrooms, the dedicated office, the home theater – whatever it is that you’re lacking in your current home. But how do you know that you’re really ready for a custom home? Sure, your new home “works” for you – but you have all these dreams about a perfect layout and every tiny detail in your head. If you can get your mind off your dream home and can’t find anything with the cookie-cutter builders in your area, here are 4 signs that you’re ready to take the dive into a brand new construction custom home in Naples.

  1. Your list of upgrades is getting prohibitively long.
    We all love our homes. We’ve made them our own over the years with decorative details and beautiful furnishings. But what about those windows that you’ve been wanting to replace? And the french doors that are getting just a little too old? Maybe you were thinking about adding a pool or considering relocating your kitchen appliances. Over time all of these little upgrades that you’ve been considering may price you out of the value of your home. If you’re considering more improvements than you have opportunity for value growth in your home – it’s probably time to consider looking into a custom home.
  2. You’re running out of room.
    More storage space, a dedicated office, or just a place you can go to be alone – all of these are on your list for luxuries that you’d like to see in your own home. But when you’re limited in square space or the size of your lot, it’s time to rethink things. Undeniably, if you’re wanting to increase your square footage – it’s probably time to upgrade to a custom home.
  3. Your style has evolved over the years.
    What worked for you when you first purchased your existing home and your style now may have changed dramatically. Where you might have loved your cabinets, flooring and walls 10 years ago, they’re just not doing it for you anymore. Over a decade (or longer if you’ve been in your home for that long), architecture changes a lot. The transitional home’s architecture is going to be completely different than a home built in the 90’s, 00’s or even 5 years ago. If you think you’re ready to completely change the style of your home, you’re probably ready for a custom home.
  4. You’re not excited about where you live.
    Location, location, location. We hear it from realtors all the time, but it’s probably one of the most important considerations in a home. Whether you’re just not excited about your community anymore or whether you’re looking to relocate to Southwest Florida, you may be considering a new location. Take the time to really assess what moving to a location could mean for your routine. If you’re ready to make a change and find yourself spending more time in a different area, or are just sick of the weather where you’re living right now – it’s probably time to get in touch with a custom home builder in a location that you can see yourself in in the long term.

A custom home is a huge undertaking, but the reward is great. The layout you’ve been dreaming of with immaculate details all around is just a phone call away. You don’t have to settle for a home you don’t love in a location that you’re not excited about. If your home is getting too small, or just isn’t what you need – it’s time to reach out to a custom home builder in your area and get the ball rolling.
