It can be quite enticing to buy an older home, but those fixer-uppers can actually be a nightmare. What seem like simple enough repairs can turn out to be much more extensive than first thought. That can lead to a drain on your time and, more importantly, your finances.
So, you have decided to build a new home instead? Good move! However, the choice is not always cut and dried here either. Some builders are better than others and some do a better job with certain styles of homes than others. Your input in the process can sometimes be limited and that hardly seems fair when you are making an investment that will cost you a great deal of money.
One way you can make your input clearly known is by choosing a prefabricated home. This way you can choose from quite a few different designs and select the one that reflects your tastes and ambitions for the home.
Prefabricated homes in Ontario are also an excellent choice because of the climate. The various sections are manufactured completely indoors and then transported to the site and assembled. This is much faster than building a structure from scratch outdoors where weather can delay things considerably.
Don’t be fooled by this convenience, however. There are no compromises involved when you purchase a prefabricated home. They look every bit as nice as a traditionally built structure, are just as durable, and possess a resale value comparable to any house that has been maintained properly by its owners. Chances are you have driven by and admired many prefabricated houses without even realizing that they were manufactured in sections at a factory.
There are a number of excellent custom home builders that specialize in prefabricated houses. Ask around, do some research, and you will likely be highly satisfied with the home you select.
