April 07, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 162

Deciding if you should build a new home or just buy an existing one is a difficult thing to do. Building a home offers many great advantages, but so does buying an existing one; If you choose to build a home, you get to make decisions about the details of the home and you can watch it take shape. That is something really appealing. On the other hand, if you choose to buy an existing home, you will be saving yourself from the tough decisions that you have to make when building a home. To help you decide, I have listed the advantages as well as the disadvantages of building a home to serve as guide if building is the right one for you.

-Building a home gives you the control over everything. One great advantage is that you get the control over everything. You are the owner and you pay builders to build the kind of home that you have in mind.

- Gives you the freedom to decide for everything. You have the freedom to decide about the features of the home. Nobody's going to tell you what to do and what not to do.

- Allows you to get professional advices. Whenever you need advice, you can ask your builders and architect. They will be pleased to help you.

-Allows you to learn new things about home construction. You supervise the project therefore you learn things that you may never know before.

-Home ownership. You are not renting the home. It is yours and that gives a sense of fulfillment.

Disadvantages:

-Building a home is expensive. Even if you have the budget, unexpected costs can occur and paying for unexpected expenses could cause problem to your finances. So when building a home, be ready for cost overruns because unexpected expenses occur in almost every home construction.

-Takes so much time to build. Money is not the only concern, but also the time. It will take few months or a few years to finish a home and waiting for construction to finish can be disheartening. It also needs a long-term financial commitment so it can be really costly.

-Tough decisions to make. As the owner, you will have to make decisions and you will have to solve every problem that will occur. Dealing with those considerations on a daily basis throughout the home building process can be really stressing unless you've got a positive mental attitude.
