Generally speaking, homes aren’t built like they used to be, different products are used as new materials and techniques become available due to the constant need for reducing build costs, as well as to improve things like a property’s thermal efficiency rating and sound proofing. It all sounds good, if it’s done properly, the sad thing is that a lot of ‘generic’ homes just aren’t built with the care and attention that should be expected from such a purchase.
Everyone else has got one so, we should get the same…
The above, type of mentality is widespread, it does not discriminate and even worse, it makes no sense. Only a small percentage of the world is happy with what they have, fortunate enough to not be bound by needing to be in competition or, feeling ‘less than’, if they don’t have the latest iPhone or whatever else It might be. Unfortunately, for the world’s largest proportion of people, they are bound within that mindset, however, the great thing is, they don’t need to be.
How on earth did it decrease in value?
Buying property or, the land on which to build a property is a good long-term investment however, how good an investment, however, the end result will highly depend upon who builds the home and, what you do with it over time to increase the potential resale value. Clearly the last thing on a person’s mind, if they are buying the property as a home, but it’s something you need to consider, your family may grow, things change, something might happen that means you have to sell.
Not great, especially if your property doesn’t have anything unique about it. It’s one of the main reasons people choose to use custom home builders and contractors in Canberra, at the very least they can expect to get a property that will hold its value better.
How is someone like me going to be able to afford a custom home?
In general, house prices have increased over the years, regardless of what is happening in the economy, or, world of finance, somehow, or another, the overall price of property has increased over time. This is great news for anyone using a custom home builder because, they, or you are buying into a long-term, unique investment that should have a better rate of return, whatever that may be, with a custom home, you can that little bit surer.
