Custom homes come with a wide range of benefits that spec homes typically don’t. However, many people don’t recognize building a custom home is an option for them because they have absorbed common myths about them and written it off as a possibility. Today, our team at Smith & Company Custom Homes & Remodeling would like to debunk a few of these common myths.

Common Myths About Custom Homes

  • Myth #1: Custom homes are prohibitively expensive. Many people believe custom homes are only for wealthy people, but that isn’t the case. Custom homes come in all shapes and sizes, so you can still have one built for you that suits your budget. It doesn’t have to have the luxury features that many associate with custom homes; it just has to have features that work for your specific needs.
  • Myth #2: Custom homes have poor resale value. Some people fear that customizing their home too much will tank its resale value. This belief is understandable since keeping things generic makes a home appealing to a wider range of people, but there are plenty of buyers who will appreciate the unique qualities your home has to offer if you ever decide to sell.
  • Myth #3: You need to know about architecture. You don’t need to have knowledge of or experience in architecture if you want a custom home. As long as your builder understands it and has all the appropriate credentials, they will help you create a home with a layout, materials, and features that bring your vision to life.
