If you’ve been on the hunt for your next home, you understand it can be challenging to find a house that meets your needs, aesthetic appeal and fits within your budget!

As one can imagine, there are many benefits to building a home. Not only do you get to select every detail to your liking, you also get to decide what components of the home you want to splurge and save on!

Additionally, you can make plans for future renovations that align with your vision. Perhaps that dream walk-out basement needs to wait until the kids’ college fund is taken care of. When you build a home, you can plan for those future renovations and design the framework accordingly.

We understand that purchasing a home is a huge investment that can often be an overwhelming experience. At Hearthside Homes, our goal is to guide you through the process so you can avoid the headaches that are often associated with building a home.

Here are a few reasons you should consider building your next home with our team:

1). Ability To Personalize

One of the best things about building a home from the ground-up is having the opportunity to select every detail! Unlike purchasing an existing home, you get to hand pick every component of a custom build. From the tile to the trim and everything in between, we can help you create a space that is uniquely YOU!

Believe it or not, having the house built just the way you want it can actually SAVE you money! Think about it, when you move into a pre-owned home, you’re more than likely going to want to swap out the paint and some appliances. By building a home, you ensure you’ll get exactly what you want from the start.

2). The Perfect Lot

A beautiful house with a bad lot is like the Chiefs without Maholmes – it’s definitely not ideal! Having the right lot can be a huge deciding factor in whether or not you purchase a particular home. Maybe you want a cul-de-sac for the kids to ride bikes, or you need a yard big enough to entertain your furry friend. Whatever your needs are, getting to pick your perfect lot definitely has its perks.

3). Quality Of Construction 

A huge benefit to building a home is being able to monitor the quality of construction. Often when you purchase a home, you don’t discover it’s flaws until disaster strikes. After all, when you tour a house, do you even know what’s beneath the surface of the drywall? Did the builder cut any corners that you’ll have to repair in the future?

When you build a home with Hearthside Homes, we’ll include you throughout the whole process. You’ll be with us from the time we pour the foundation, to the time we hand over the keys. By being included during the construction process, you’ll be able to witness first-hand our attention to detail and the craftsmanship that comes with it.

4). A Floor Plan That Fits Your Family

When you build a home, you can pick a floor plan that will comfortably fit your family. Believe it or not, there’s more to this than one might imagine. Depending on the size of your family, you might need additional bedrooms, bathrooms, and even an extra spot in the garage!

Whether you’re just starting your family, or you’re transitioning to being an empty nester, we can help you select a house plan that will work for your family for years to come!

5). Energy Efficient Options 

Did you know that picking the right materials up-front can save you thousands in the long run? From appliances, light fixtures, to heating and cooling systems, there are several smart decisions you can make that can drastically reduce your spending and environmental footprint.

Not to mention, it’s important that the house is properly insulated and that your windows and doors are adequately installed. This is yet another reason why it’s important to pick a builder you can trust.

6). Safe Neighborhood

Safety is obviously a huge priority to many homeowners. After all, what’s a beautiful house if you can’t sleep soundly at night?! This is one of many reasons why we work in conjunction with specific neighborhoods.

7). Best School Districts

If you have school-aged kids, building a home in a specific neighborhood definitely has its advantages! By choosing where to build your home, you can also select your child’s school district. This has several benefits including shorter commutes to school, like-minded families to socialize with and giving your children the best possible education.

8). Better Resale Value 

Life often throws you curveballs you never saw coming. When you build a new house as opposed to buying a pre-owned one, you’re more likely to benefit from the resale value. Even if you’re not planning on ever moving, it’s great to know that you made a great investment.

9). Quality Of Life 

Some couples enjoy having a project to work on around the house, while others avoid renovations at all cost! Do you want to spend your weekends fiddling around with a to-do list, or would you rather take that time to have experiences with your family? If home-improvement projects make you want to wrangle with your spouse, a new build home can definitely ease some tension!

10). The Little Things Make a Big Difference 

Believe it or not, it’s the little details that can make a huge difference in the functionality of your home. When you build a home, you can incorporate extra outlets, determine lighting placement, door positioning and storage solutions! All of these smaller details, combined with your builder’s years of expertise will ensure that your home is functional and accommodating for years to come.
