There are MANY benefits and rewards you’ll gain when building your own home. Below are just a few of them.
Save Money. A typical builder’s profit can range from 18 to 20 percent of the total cost of construction and land. In addition, Realtor fees can range from 5 to 7 percent of the total price of the home. By eliminating these two fees, you can easily save 25 to 30 percent of the cost of your new home. And by doing just a little of the work yourself—like painting or landscaping or clean-up—you can save upwards of 40 to 50 percent of the overall cost of a new home.
Have the home you want the way you want it. By building your own home, you make all the decisions. You get to choose the plan and the features that are most important to you rather than letting someone else decide those things for you. You decide where to save money and where to spend up on things. And you decide exactly the location to build it. No more compromises!
Learn exciting new skills. You’ll be embarking on an exciting journey and one that will let your talents and creativity grow. You will be the “boss” of your project and will learn how to effectively manage many different types of people and get them to do things your way. You’ll have control of the finances for the project and will set up a bookkeeping system. You’ll use your own creative abilities to solve problems, save money, and build wealth!
Increase your net worth. Not only will you save substantial money by building your own home, but you’ll increase your net worth as well! It’s like a bank account for the future!
