Am I Really Ready to Buy a Custom Home?

Posted by Meriam Reed on Oct 9, 2015 12:29:27 PM

Am-I-really-ready-to-buy-a-custom-home_If you’ve been casting curious glances at your Naples-area home lately and wondering if it’s really the home you want, you’re in good company. It’s a pretty common occurrence—especially if you’ve been in your home for a while. But what if it’s going to take more than a fresh coat of paint and some new flooring to create the kind of environment you have in mind?  What if you want a whole new design and feel—one that reflects your sense of style and your unique lifestyle? Is building a custom home your only option? 

One of the great things about building a new custom home is that you get to start with a clean slate. But before you pursue that path, here are a few questions you should consider. 

  • Do I Like My Existing Neighborhood or Community? Think a bit about what enticed you to buy where you are now. Are those things still valid? Do you like the way the area looks? Is it convenient to the things you like (or need) to do? Does this area feel like home?
  • Will I Be Able to Maintain Relationships? It takes time to create and develop new relationships. Will moving allow you to maintain those relationships? Will it still be convenient to get together with friends for cookouts, book groups, and other gatherings? Or will distance pull you apart? 
  • What Will My New Neighborhood Be Like? Sometimes it’s nice to make a fresh start. On the other hand, when you move into a new community, you have no idea what the makeup of the neighborhood will be like. Yes, you’ll have the opportunity to shape your new neighborhood, but that’s not everyone’s cup of tea. 
  • Do I Really Want the Hassle of Moving? When you’re young moving just doesn’t seem like that big of a deal. But most of us tend to collect “stuff” as we collect years. And some of it is nice stuff, too. When that happens, moving is more of an issue. It’s a disruptive inconvenience—and an added expense. 

Those are all legitimate questions you’ll want to consider before taking the plunge of building a new custom home. But here’s a final question that can render all of those other questions moot: 

Can I get the custom features and new look and feel I want without moving? The answer is yes. But you’re not going to achieve your goal with simple cosmetic changes like slapping some paint on the walls or even by refinishing your kitchen cabinets. To get the custom results you want, you need a combination of great design and quality craftsmanship. That’s a big reason to use a design-build remodeler for your home renovation. 

A design-build firm takes a custom approach to your home renovation. It begins with evaluating your needs, lifestyle, and sense of personal style. And then the craftsmen work together with the designers to create the unique space you want in your home. 

Whether you’re looking to create a spacious and inviting new kitchen, a stunning master bathroom, or to totally reinvent and upgrade your whole home, Reed Design Build has the skilled designers and quality craftsmen who can turn your dreams into reality and allow you to enjoy the home you’ve always wanted—right where you are!
