Your home is the backdrop of your life. It’s where your days start and finish. It’s where your family feels safest. And it’s where memories are etched in the landscape of your life. Home, after all, is where the heart is. So you want a home you love, right? If you are making a decision on your next home, have you considered the possibility of building a new home instead of buying an existing house?
Many folks think building a home is out of reach for them. But in fact, it might be a more attainable option than you think. Here are a few factors to consider.
A Kansas City home building experience for you
Everyone wants a home that reflects their personal preferences and individual style. Finding everything you want and need is hard to achieve when purchasing an existing home. The best way to get all the pieces to your perfect home puzzle is by building it the way you want. At Lumber One, we work with builders on hundreds of new construction homes a year. We have a long list of the top Kansas City home builders we trust and recommend. We can help you identify the builder that will fit your needs and budget.
The timing is right.
If budget is a concern, which is common when considering a home purchase, then winter might just be the optimal time for choosing to build a new home. We know winter can be a time of hibernation, and though home builders don’t necessarily pack it up for the winter, it is definitely a slower time. This drop in demand brings down the costs of supplies, like lumber, making it a more financially feasible option. Also, it’s important to keep in mind that there are home builders for every size and every budget.
The market is in your favor.
In general, there are not a lot of houses on the market. Particularly for growing families, there is a real shortage of homes in the Kansas City area. And home buying options will likely continue to be limited as we head into the colder season. Low inventory drives up the cost of purchasing an existing home thus making a case for considering new construction.
Building a new home in Kansas City can feel intimidating.
It’s a big investment but with the right builder, and a workable budget, you can achieve this dream. Even if you just want to talk through the idea of a new build, give us a call. We would love to help! 913.583.9889
