The main criteria to consider are the natural features of the building lot. For example, if your plans include a walk out basement, a lot with a fair amount of slopes and hills will be best suited for your plans. Take into consideration the movement of the sun. Will sunlight be coming through your windows directly or at a sharp angle? Window placement can directly affect the natural lighting of your home and be used for heating during winter months. If you would like your luxury custom home to include large windows but also allow your privacy, you might consider a lot with trees.
One of the greatest options of the luxury custom home is that the home is built around you. Many factors may contribute to the length of time involved in the building process: what are your financing arrangements? What are the most important details of your custom home plan? What are the excavation requirements of your building lot? Because there are so many unique factors, Rich Home Building and Development must give you a quote on an individual basis. We can also assist you in planning your budget and timeline for the custom home plans you are seeking. Contact our office at 315.797.4512.
When considering the numerous options of your custom home plans, you must consider how long you intend to stay in this home. As a general rule, if you are staying in the home for ten years or more, it is recommended that the project be built to suit your personal taste and lifestyle. If you are uncertain about the length of stay at your custom residence, then a high resale value may be of more importance to you.
Landscaping is a major factor in home resale value. Landscaping should be low maintenance and neat. It should enhance the attractiveness of the home from a distance. Another factor that determines resale value is the comparison between your home and the other homes in your area. If your home has a single car garage and every other home on the block has a double car garage, it could negatively affect the resale value. Features that distinguish your home from the others around it could positively affect the resale value. Features such as a whirlpool or a stone fireplace can make a home more attractive to a buyer. Avoid any features that are blatantly contrary to the features of the neighborhood.
Take advantage of Rich Home Building and Development’s years of experience. Do not hesitate to ask our input on how a specific feature of your custom home plan may add or detract from the resale value of your home. In many cases, there exists a balance between features that add to the resale value and the features that make your home the home of your dreams.
