“How do I avoid spending too much money on my house?” Chris asked. “I’m not the most real-estate knowledgeable guy out there, but all you have to do is look around this region and you find people who paid too much for their houses. We have friends who are underwater. I don’t want to spend more than I have to spend.”
“But we do want a nice house,” his wife Wendy interjected. “Sticking to the budget is important, but we also have to remember that this is going to be our home.”
The primary advantage of choosing a design/build contractor for your Upton home is you maximize the value of your new home budget. Rather than paying top dollar for an architect to design plans and a general contractor to build from them, a design/build contractor handles it all. This introduces savings into the cost structure right from the get-go, and the savings only increase from that point.
Your Design/Build Contractor will work closely with you to ensure your home has everything you want and none of the extraneous expenses that you don’t. There are design choices you can make to keep costs down – such as room sizes, material choices and floor plans – without compromising in the terms of quality, safety, and comfort of your home.
There are architects out there who are more in love with their own vision of what a house should look like than they are with listening to what you actually want. We think that’s ridiculous. When you’re having a home custom built, it should be a home you enjoy thoroughly, reflecting your vision, wants and needs.
We understand that having a home built can seem like an overwhelming prospect. We’re sure you have questions. We have answers. Give us a call. We’d be happy to talk to you and give you the information you need to make a good decision.
