There is nothing wrong with purchasing an existing home, of course. It is still the most common option. However, building your home can also provide you with a number of fantastic advantages. In some areas, building is less expensive than buying a home, especially when you factor in any extensive remodeling you need to do.

In addition to this, there are other reasons to consider building instead of buying:

  • You get to design your own home. You get exactly what you want. You get to move into a home that is exactly the way you want it. For most people, this is at the heart of their reason to build.
  • You know the condition of every system in your home and you even get to make decisions about them. How important is that air filtration system? You know the warranty and condition of your home’s roof, plumbing, lighting, and so on.
  • It also offers some key health benefits. New homes can be built to be energy efficient. They are also less likely to have toxic paints in them or mold present.

At the end of the day, only you can decide if buying a home or building a home in Michigan is the right decision for you. The good news is there are many reasons to build today including its overall accessibility and value. Work with a real estate agent to find the ideal property to build your dream home on. It is worth the process.
