Often, semi-custom homes combine the best of both worlds for homebuyers. Semi-custom home construction is an easier option for many home buyers because it offers the convenience of buying a ready-to-move-in home, a plethora of customizable options, all without the complexity of designing a property from scratch.
At the start of a semi-custom home build, a contractor will be able to provide a potential buyer with a library of their custom designs. In this outline, they will likely have a list of eco-friendly material options, layout choices and potentially a backlog of subcontractors to choose from. From these proposed design plans, clients can select the floor plan that will work best for them, as well as pick out colors, finishes and more to suit their design wants and needs.
If you have a clear vision for your new home but aren’t interested in spending the time and money needed to fully customize it, a semi-custom home might be perfect for you. With these home builds you can eliminate a lot of tedious, overwhelming choices such as finding the right subcontractors on your own or picking from a list of thousands of floor finishes. Semi-custom contractors can help to cut down on a lot of the stress that can come about during the custom home process.
Mitigate Build Downtime
From start to finish, constructing a home usually takes anywhere from six months to many years. When it comes to moving into your new home, most families do not want to wait that long. The time it takes you to build a home can be reduced by half when you hire a semi-custom design firm. A semi-custom home includes the land within the price, so you won’t have to spend a lot of time or money on purchasing a lot. Furthermore, with a semi-custom home, not only will your builder be able to buy materials in bulk for you, but you will also be able to lower your costs.
When you choose a semi-custom builder, you need not worry about your home looking like everyone else’s on the block. As with most semi-custom homes, the majority of the non-customizable options will deal with the pre-designed floor plans. Otherwise, you will have the ability to select special features that are unique to your style.
These can include different flooring finish options, light and appliance fixture styles, appliance finishes, as well as countertop materials or even paint colors. Semi-custom builders can ensure that your unique style is incorporated into their pre-designed floor plans. A semi-custom home can work with you and for you to best suit your family lifestyle needs at a much cheaper price and faster timeline.
Semi-Custom Neighborhoods & Amenities
When you opt to work with a semi-custom builder, you’re likely going to be moving into a defined housing community. These semi-custom communities typically offer amenities such as a dedicated green space, dog parks, club houses, pools, along with various homeowner activities or events to build a sense of community within the neighborhood.
