Buying your first home is a big decision, and there’s a lot of things to consider before you take the plunge. You may be weighing up your options, trying to decide between buying off the plan OR engaging a custom home builder. Ultimately the decision will come down to personal circumstance and budget, but for many people the ability to design their dream home from the ground up proves impossible to resist.

In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on why we think a custom build is a much better alternative to buying off the plan.

No Limits to What Can Be Achieved

Everyone homeowner has something they don’t like about their house. This could be anything from loud pipes through to small rooms or inadequate amenities for the size of the family. When you buy off the plan, you do not get to customise the home to suit your needs. If you buy an existing dwelling, you’re usually buying someone else’s problems which can end up costing you a fortune to fix. Both these scenarios leave you unsatisfied and wanting more, and then you either need to move to a new house prematurely or invest some serious cash in time intensive renovations.

Working with an experienced and capable custom home builder puts you in the driver’s seat. You can customise your home design to suit your exacting requirements. Perhaps you fancy the idea of a home theatre, maybe a fully equipped gym? We can make that happen. A custom home design means no compromises – you get exactly what you want. The satisfaction and enjoyment you will get out of your home over the years is priceless.

More Affordable Than You Think

At Trusted Building Group, we work according to your budget. The biggest contributors towards the total cost of a house are materials and labour, but savings can be made by opting for alternative materials which can still meet your aesthetic goals. We can also steer you in the right direction in terms of design choices or the best ways of going about the build to conserve money. We are a full-service building company here to serve you and manage your build from inception through to completion. Our extensive industry connections and experience give us the confidence to deliver exactly what you want without exceeding your budget.

Luxurious Designs and Quality Workmanship

A home is a place to relax, entertain and enjoy. Everyone has different lifestyle requirements, but a standard project home is unlikely to meet these needs. Often these homes are built in the shortest time possible, and corners may be cut.

When you work a custom home builder, we pay attention to detail and go to great lengths to source high-quality products that will meet your needs. For example, you may want to have a stone or marble benchtop in your kitchen rather than cheap laminate offered in many project homes – and we’ll be happy to oblige. A custom-built home will not only look stunning, it will also be exceptionally functional as it has been tailor made according to your needs and specifications.

Unique Homes are Special Homes

Seeing the same old cookie cutter home designs again and again gets stale. A truly unique home will take pride of place within the street, and when it comes time to sell, you will reap the rewards. It is not uncommon to read about unique home designs setting new suburb sales records. People want to buy something special, and they’re willing to pay a premium for it. Opting for a custom design is a smart investment for any home owner, and you can rest easy in the knowledge that when the time comes to sell you will make a tidy return on investment.
