Land is a Great Investment
After all, they’re not making any more if it, right? One of the most common reasons we hear for buying land is to eventually live on it. For some of us, the idea of building on your own piece of land to call home may sound like an expensive and time-consuming project, but that’s not the case at all. In fact, developing your own property is a cost-effective and customizable way to increase your net worth with a solid investment.
Save Your Money
On the lower end, the potential amount of money you can save by building your own house is about 25-30% of the price you would pay to buy a house that’s already been built. This percentage alone comes from just the builder’s profit and the realtor fees in buying a house. And, if you’re the type that doesn’t mind putting a little elbow grease in to your own project, you can increase those savings to upwards of 40-50% by doing some of the building on your own (landscaping, painting, cleaning, etc). Who would have thought that a little time, patience, and footwork could payoff so much?
Get Exactly What You Want
Another benefit of building your own house is that you get to choose what you want to build and how you want it built – this could be anything from a small cottage or a green home, to a dome home or even a larger house. Have you been looking for a house to buy with the right amount of open space and amenities you’ve been dreaming about? Well, look no further and start building your dream home!
There is no better feeling than having accomplished a project this big on your own. So why not make your next project your dream home? With so many potential benefits that come along with building your own home, why wait to start making that dream happen and watch as the benefits fall into play shortly after.
