We all know the saying: “There’s no place like home.” And this is even truer if you invest in a luxury home. This truth is because if you buy a house that someone else has already lived in, there’s usually at least one thing that you wish you could change. But if you’re getting a custom luxury home, every inch of that house is made to your liking. There will be no place like home for you. So, below are five things you should consider when making such an investment.
1) The First Rule of Real Estate
The location of your home will affect how much you can sell it for in the future, how convenient it is to live there, and how much you’ll enjoy it overall.
Be sure to consider how far you’ll be commuting to work, the schools that are close by, and what your neighbors and overall community will be like.
2) Build it, Don’t Buy It
Consider more built-in bookshelves, cabinets, and entertainment centers. Building in your furniture will improve your space in ways that purchased furniture cannot, it will also add value to your new home which essentially means it will pay for itself.
3) Amenities are Limitless
If you’re getting a luxury home, you have the option to include any amenity you can think of.
But make sure to choose ones that make sense for you to save money and space.
For example, don’t waste a big part of the property on a basketball court if you’d use a movie theatre more.
4) Your Home is Not a Museum
Some people design a home so precisely that they never even enjoy it. Everything has to look untouched like it’s some museum.
Remember that this is your home, and it’s for your enjoyment. Design it with coziness and functionality so that you enjoy it as much as possible.
Make your home a place where your kids want to hang out and where they want their friends to come hang out. It is always easier to keep your kids safe in your home. A game room, playset, basketball court or some other available activity will make your kids enjoy your luxury home.
5) Choose a Quality Builder
You’ll have an endless list of contractors who would like to take on your project.
To make sure you choose the best one, consider:
Their previous projects
How customizable they are
Another essential element to look at is the reviews left by prior clients. Be sure to read the reviews with an open mind. Some customers may be satisfied while others might be disappointed. But, just because someone isn’t satisfied, doesn’t mean the contractor isn’t good at what they do.
By keeping these five things in mind, you’re on the fast-track to living in a customized, luxury home that there will be no place like.
