Why Build Custom?

Why Build A Custom Home?


Almost every day, we talk to homeowners who ask us the question: Why build a custom home instead of just purchasing an existing (pre-built) home?  Often, these homeowners have misconceptions about costs, what dealing with a custom home builder is all about, what they can and can’t customize, etc.

Please allow us to shed some light on the core advantages of building a custom home, so you can decide for yourself if buying an existing home or building a custom dream home best fits your lifestyle and your needs. While a custom built home isn’t for everyone, it certainly can be a great option for many!

Here are some great answers to the question: why build custom?

A Truly Custom Home Builder

One thing to keep in mind if you are considering your options is that many builders throughout Richmond claim “custom home builder” status. However, few and far between actually deliver a true custom home building experience and end product. Make sure when you’re considering a custom home that you ask all the right questions and that you’re chosen builder (if not Creative Home Concepts) can truly customize each and every detail. A “track” home with a few custom options is not a true custom home. While these sorts of homes are fantastic for many homeowners, those looking for a more unique and personalized custom home continue to gravitate towards true custom builders like Creative Home Concepts.

As we say all the time, “The Difference Is In The Details!’

Keep reading! Building a custom home presents so many advantages!

Everything You Need: Nothing You Don’t Want!

Why build custom? Because the first thing you think when walking into a house shouldn’t be compromise. We’ve all seen beautiful houses that we think we’d love if we added a few things to really make it our home. We’ve also all walked into a room of a house we’re looking at and thought to ourselves “I have no idea what I’m gonna do with this space!” Unfortunately, this is commonplace when homeowners consider purchasing a pre-existing home. Oftentimes, these homes lack the core features you really want, and on the flip side offer features you don’t really need. After all, that home was built for a different set of homeowners who might not share your family’s needs and desires.

A custom built home is just that – custom built for your family. From the day you move in, your new custom home will include everything you want and need out of your dream home. Is the first thing you think of when buying a pre-existing home how you’d have to remodel? You’re likely far better suited to consider building a custom home from the start!

Take a look at our Custom Homes Gallery to see some great examples of dream houses we’ve built that perfectly fit our client’s needs.

The Perfect House in the Perfect Neighborhood

Maybe you’ve found a neighborhood you’d love to live in, but couldn’t find a house that fit your needs (or vice versa). Building custom is one of the best ways to insure you get exactly the house you want in exactly the neighborhood you love!

Creative Home Concepts builds custom homes in many of the finest neighborhoods in Richmond. We’re proud to be one of the builders in great neighborhoods like Hallsley (and its age-targeted subdivision, Saville Park), Raleigh Manor and Cedar Green. We can even build right on your lot!

When you choose to build a custom home, there’s no need to compromise on anything.

Everything Is Brand New

A brand new custom home means every single aspect of your home is 100% brand new! From your new siding, new appliances, new roof, new windows, new heating and cooling systems…you get the point!  You can kiss any unwanted “surprises” goodbye when it comes to your custom built home.

We build exactly what you want with exactly the right details to custom fit your home to your lifestyle.

Brand new everything also means brand new methods for home construction, including our intense focus on maximum energy efficiency. Homeowners throughout Richmond have become more conscientious of their footprint on the environment. They demand their homes be built with energy efficiency in mind, and we think it’s a fantastic idea! At Creative Home Concepts, we utilize the most modern techniques for creating maximum home energy efficiency.
