Building A Custom Home Doesn’t Have to Cost More

Northeast Ohio Home Sales 2010-2011-resized-600.jpgAMHERST, OHIO – Property prices and the state of the housing market can be a depressing subject nowadays, especially for first-time buyers mired in a host of other economic challenges.

Inflation. Continued spikes in oil prices and fragile consumer confidence.

But the outlook’s stabilizing, especially in Northeast Ohio and locations where the cost of living is relatively lower.

According to the Plain Dealer, sales of new and existing houses were up 18.3 percent from October 2010, when the housing market was in a slump after a popular tax credit for buyers expired.

What’s more, consumer perceptions of quality and value have also shifted, and first-time buyers through veteran homeowners are discerning drivers of greater options, flexibility and pricing.

A less-known fact is that the price of designing and building custom homes is no greater than pursuing model or track options. However, it does allow homeowners to work closely with their builder every step of the way. This provides greater personal and creative liberty, which helps ease first-time buyer anxiety, and enables them to take control of the purchasing cycle.
