Nine Mistakes to Avoid When Building a New Home – Part 2

Tuscany Homes, a custom home builder Vancouver WA, wants to make the process of building a new home as pleasant as possible.

That’s why we’ve compiled a list of the nine biggest mistakes to avoid when building a new home. In this installment, the second of three, we look at mistakes made about size, resell value, and mortgage.

Building Too Big. You may think you want an Aaron Spelling-sized home but in reality you don’t need a mansion. Big houses are expensive to maintain and hard to keep clean.

Sure, you want some size but a properly designed 2,500 square foot to 3,000 square foot home will have plenty of room for a family.

Consider this…

The National Association of Home Builders says it costs, on average, $105 to build a square foot of new home. So, if you eliminate just 50 square feet you’re saving more than $50,000.

Not Thinking About Your Home’s Resale Value. Okay, you’re building your dream home and you plan on dying in it. That’s sounds great but if you want to make God laugh just tell him your plans.

You have no idea what is going to happen to you in the future. Also, if you give your home to your descendants they may want to sell it.

That’s why you should think about your home’s resale value before you even build it.

You may want an indoor squash court, a comic book humidor, and a built-in coy pond but will they add any resale value to your new home?

Allowing Your Mortgage to Get Out of Control. If you build a well-designed home with a reasonable mortgage, you can have a custom home builder Vancouver WA, say Tuscany Homes, add things like French doors, crown molding, and chic light fixtures in the future.
