    Decisions to Make During the Custom Home Process

    by Kathy Gulvas

    When looking at homes, there is something to be said about building your own home. Designing a home exactly the way that you want it is often a dream come true. You also can't forget that you are going to have brand new appliances and a kitchen built just the way that you want it!

    That being said, there are many decisions that need to be made when you are planning your custom-built home. Here are some things to think about.

    Finding the perfect homesite

    You are going to want to find a homesite that is close to the local shops and amenities that you use the most around town.

    You may want to be a part of a community, part of a neighborhood, or off alone on a larger spot of land in the country. Because there are so many options, it is important that you take your time and look around before you choose where to build your dream home.

    Picking the right community

    Many people find themselves in love with a certain community or neighborhood. They may be out driving and see a new community growing right before their eyes or have their eyes set on one that’s been in their area for years and years.

    Some communities offer special amenities for their residents, including playgrounds, parks, walking paths, gyms, and pools. With research and searching, you can find a community that has a little bit of everything.

    Choosing a style of home

    There are many different styles of homes to choose from in Florida from larger single-family homes to condos to townhomes. Which one is right for you depends on your needs, your wants, and your dreams.

    You also have to decide on the look and feel of your future home. Florida is home to a variety of home architecture for inspiration.

    Deciding on the right size

    The size can be one of the hardest things to decide. Do you think about the future and how much room you’ll need or just how much space you need right now. How many bathrooms? Do you want entertainment spaces, a large kitchen, outdoor areas? There’s a lot to consider.

    What else do you need? 

    This is the time to dream about what you really want in a home. Dreaming about building your special home can be a lot of fun, but there are some decisions to be made on the way.
