Luxury custom homes used to be something reserved for the rich and powerful, but that is no longer the case. With a vision in mind, and reasonable expectations, virtually anyone can make a luxury home their own. Take a look at just a few facts about custom home plans you probably didn’t know!
Designer home models don’t cost as much as you think they do. You’re paying for the amenities you’re asking for, yes, but custom home builders only charge about 15-25% of the entire price of your home. That’s way cheaper than most are led to believe!
Popular amenities usually come and go, but the ones that are popular right now are mostly practical, rather than focusing on the luxury factor. Some examples of practical items include solar panels, geothermal HVAC systems, energy efficient systems, and smart systems. The smart systems link devices, electronics and security to allow the owners to control their home from smartphones and/or tablets. There are of course luxury items at the top of the list though, including infinity pools, stone bathtubs, custom wine cellars with tasting rooms, vineyards, spa rooms, full outdoor kitchens with wood-fire pizza ovens, and more.
One of the biggest contributors to the rise in luxury custom homes is the benefits that will come in the future. When you think about it, custom plans are actually cheaper than other living options. Many people move into a home that they only kind of like and then spend thousands of dollars to renovate their home to make it what they want. Combine that expense with what you’ll save with eco-friendly features in a custom home, and the resale value of luxury homes, and the amount you’ll save exceeds what you’ll spend!
