Why Should You Build a Custom Home?

When it’s time to build your new home on the Crystal Coast, C.O.D. Home Services can help deliver the custom home of your dreams. We’ve been building homes in the Emerald Isle area for many years and have the experience and local knowledge to give you a beautiful, unique, custom home.

A custom home is the ultimate in personalization

Building a home offers many advantages over buying an existing house or a builder’s model. It’s made to suit your needs and you have control over the entire process, with our experienced team here to guide you through design and construction.

When you build your custom home, you get to include design elements and features that are important to you. From exterior finishes to cabinets and countertops, you’re picking the products that you want to see. In our initial consultation we’ll discover what it will take to make your home perfect for you; we’re here to make sure construction and budgetary needs are considered, but the final decisions are yours.

A custom home is, essentially, a blank canvas. Your new tailor-made home will be built to fit your personality, giving you a unique space to enjoy for years to come.

And when it comes to location, we can build on a lot you already own or help you find the right lot for your needs.

A custom home is more functional

Your custom home is built for the way you live, rather than the way a builder thinks the average person wants to live. Don’t want a formal dining room? Then we don’t build one. Instead, we’ll use that space for other needs, like a larger great room for more extensive entertaining, a home office, a library or a home theater.

Open concept? More separate rooms? It’s up to you. There’s no need to settle for an existing home that’s going to require extensive remodeling to get it where you want it to be.

A custom home doesn’t have to be more expensive

A common myth about custom homes is that they cost a lot more. While some do, there are also a lot of cost savings inherent in building a home.

First of all, by getting everything you desire in your custom home you’re spending money on the features you want to, not those you don’t care about. You’re also not going to be spending money updating and remodeling right after you move in.

When comparing to an existing home, you’re going to be able to get more efficient appliances, better windows and doors, higher-quality insulation and plenty of other features that are going to reduce the cost of operating the home.

Finally, even if the original price tag is a little higher, those costs can be spread out over the lifetime of your home if you’re taking advantage of today’s historically low mortgage rates.
