Advantages of buying a custom home
Choosing a new home is one of the largest and most personal decisions any individual or family can make. And for some, a custom home is the answer to their dream. Inexperienced buyers may shy away from building a custom home due to the hassles and costs of such a project. Today, however, there are options for obtaining a custom home that skirt some of the disadvantages of managing the build oneself.
“Building a custom home gives you the freedom to build the home you want, where you want, on the land you want,” said Clay Schulz, president and CEO of Paradyne Homes, a second-generation development company with a strong reputation for customer service and quality homes.
Schultz noted that more buyers are embracing custom home opportunities in San Diego North County for a variety of reasons.
“People want out of congested city areas,” noted Schultz. “At the same time, they want a home with personality and options for designing exactly what they want.”
North San Diego County offers a beautiful setting as well as the sought-after climate that makes the area a great location to live. There is land that allows for customization of a home as well as room for future growth.
Fortunately, options for building a custom home exist today that give buyers the best of both worlds: the flexibility, freedom and options of a custom home in a setting that works more like purchasing a home in a master-planned community.
“Through a custom builder like Paradyne Homes, buyers can choose from a wide selection of floor plans, make small modifications and choose design details they like to create a signature home matching their wants, needs and desires,” Schultz said.
Schultz noted that individuals interested in building a custom home should select the appropriate builder. Key factors to consider are the builder’s reputation, the services the builder offers, their ability to educate and offer assistance and their ability to deliver the buyer’s vision.
“At Pardyne Homes, we understand that a full-service experience is crucial when building your dream home,” said Schultz. “We can walk you through the entire process — from finding the best location to site preparation and finding financing, obtaining building permits and completing construction. Paradyne offers plans that give buyers multiple choices allowing them to be involved in developing their dream home.”
Schultz added that the advantages of building a custom home in North County include less traffic, more privacy, and more space for freedom and flexibility.
“Opting for a custom home is really about lifestyle,” Shultz said. He also noted that building on larger parcels gives homeowners the option to make changes to their home to fit their needs in the future.
“We’ve had customers who were able to add space to accommodate elderly parents and others who’ve done truly unique additions,” said Schultz.
Customization also allows people to more affordably pursue other factors that support true independence such as options for solar power and private wells.
“Custom homes offer flexibility and durability,” said Shultz. “Through a builder like Paradyne Homes, buyers really get the best of both worlds.”
