Why Should I Build a Custom Townhome?

Why Build a Custom Townhome With Crestview Builders? 

What’s the best reason to build a custom townhome? Simply put: to get everything you want, exactly the way you want it. That may seem like a no-brainer to some— but for others, there are certainly a number of factors to weigh in on before you make your decision

Whether you’ve been working your way up to transition from renting to homeownership or are simply ready to leave your current home and build lasting memories in a new one, Crestview Builders is here to help. Below are just a few of the many reasons you might want to consider building a custom townhome with our expert home builders: 

Choose A Floor Plan That Suits Your Lifestyle

One of the biggest benefits of building a custom townhome is choosing a floor plan that not only fits your current lifestyle, but is also mindful of your family’s future. An incredibly common reason people find themselves uprooting their lives, selling their homes, and going through the tedious home buying process is to accommodate their families in one way or another— be it because their family is growing or to better care for older parents/family members by inviting them to live directly in their homes. 

If we’ve learned anything from 2020, it’s that life can certainly be unexpected. When choosing to construct a custom townhome from Crestview Builders, our expert home builders will work closely with you and your family to weigh the pros and cons of the various floor plans we offer and find what’s right for you in both the present day and in the future as well.

Location, Location, Location!

When you choose to build a new custom townhome rather than purchasing an existing one, you’re in control of your home’s location— and there’s a lot of power in that. Whether you’re planning a family and want to ensure you’re near the right school districts or simply want to be closer to loved ones, location is everything when it comes to home ownership. That’s why Crestview Builders offers new home construction services in very specific subdivisions across Illinois, like Ashwood Park and Hidden Creek in Naperville, Grove Estates in Oswego, and Fox Wood Estates in Woodridge.

 

Enjoy the Amenities of Your Choosing

In addition to controlling the environment surrounding your home, you can also choose exactly what unique style details and custom amenities you’d like to include when you decide to build a new townhome. At Crestview Builders, a few of the standard inclusions for our custom townhomes include: 

  • 10′ ceilings on the first floor
  • Granite countertops & island cabinet in the kitchen
  • A gas line for dryer hook-up
  • Beautiful ceramic tile on all bathroom floors, tub, and shower walls
  • Oasis oversized soaking tub on tiled platform in master bath
  • Full 42″ beveled glass mirrors covering full width of vanities
  • And much, much more!

Should I Buy or Build My First Home?

Which Option is Right For You?

If you’re looking to buy a home right now, it can be difficult. If you’re like many Americans, you may be asking yourself whether or not you want to buy or build your first home. There’s currently a limited housing supply in most areas, and sellers often have many bids, which can drive up the price. However, having a new home built can be costly in some cases too. So how are you to know whether buying or building is the better option – especially if you’re a first-time homebuyer?

 

Buying a Home: The Pros and Cons

Buying a home is a great option if this is your first time in the real estate market. Many homes are move-in ready, so all you need to do is move. While that in itself can be a hassle, at least it’s the only hassle you’ll have to worry about. You won’t have to learn builders’ lingo or make a slew of design and decorative decisions in a short amount of time. You can find a home that appeals to you today and make changes later if you decide you want to.

However, buying can be surprisingly expensive, especially if the home you have your eye on attracts a lot of attention. If you’re looking to buy, it may be a good idea to look at homes with asking prices that are slightly below your budget. This way, if there are many bids put in for it, you can better afford a competitive bid that may have to be slightly more than the asking price. Older homes can also come with hidden problems. Make sure you get a home inspection to find as many of these as possible, and negotiate with the sellers to either get them fixed or lower the selling price so you can have that taken care of yourself.

 

Building a Home: The Pros and Cons

If you’re the type of person who wants to have control over everything in and on the home, then having your home built is a better way to go. While home construction from the ground up may sound intimidating, having the right builder and construction crew can make all the difference. And if you’re concerned about waiting to have the home built, don’t be! In fact, many home builders can have the new home ready for you in just 3-4 months, while the average home search takes about 10 weeks. And that doesn’t even include the bidding process, home inspection, and closing date!

However, keep in mind that you will pay for the convenience of having everything exactly as you want it. A National Association of Realtors survey found that the median price of home construction was $85,000 more than purchasing an already existing home. Also, be sure to keep location in mind. While choosing a rural, never-built-upon location may erase the hassle and cost of having to demolish an existing structure, the cost of accessing water, electricity, and other utilities may be higher.
