Buying a Home VS Building one
One of the major investments we make in life is the purchase of a property and one important consideration is whether it is cheaper to buy or build a house. There are plus points to both however, and the choice should not always be down to which project will work out cheaper. If you decide to build a custom home in Toronto you will no doubt have thought long and hard about it, and will want to find a contractor who will be able to give you everything on your wish list, and all within a reasonable budget.
Using an experienced builder such as Woodcastle Homes will mean that the cost of building your custom home in Toronto could well work out cheaper than you first thought. We will hand hold you through the complete project, and help you to realize your dreams. What originally started in your mind as the perfect home for you can be brought to fruition when you decide to build your custom home, rather than buying one ‘off the shelf.’
Maybe you have seen a plot of land in the countryside where you could build your idyllic ‘country cottage,’ and want it to become your ‘forever’ home. The major benefit to building a custom home vs. buying one is that you will be able to incorporate everything, (as long as it is physically possible,) that your family wants within a home. You may have decided that living space is more important to your family than bedroom space, or that you want a large open plan living area, rather than separate rooms. Whatever design you have in your mind, we can show you the reality, and between us, we could end up with a design which is even better than you had thought was possible.
One of the main benefits of building rather than buying a home is that you do have the scope to customize your plans as you progress. When you buy a home off the shelf, there may be little opportunity to extend or make an addition to the home. If the cost of building a custom home in Toronto is something which you may feel is an issue, then why not take advantage of a preliminary enquiry with Woodcastle Homes?
When we receive your initial enquiry about having a custom home built, we will discuss with you the design and construction process and also deliberate over the possible costs and timelines which would be involved. This can initially be done over the phone, so you will not even need to make an appointment. We have in place a four tier pricing system so at this stage we would be dealing with a rough estimate, which will at least give you an initial idea as to the potential cost of building rather than buying a home. This obviously would be more concrete as plans progressed.
Bear in mind that we would also be using the most up to date of materials and technologies and so would be able to ensure that your new home was not only a cost effective option, but also an environmentally friendly one.
