To Build Or To Buy? Benefits Of Building A New Custom Home

During the process of transitioning out of a current home, prospective home buyers will be faced with a decision that will determine the rest of the shopping process – a proverbial fork in the road. That decision is whether to buy an existing home or to build a new custom home from the ground up. While there are merits to each option, there are benefits to building a new custom home that may not immediately come to mind. We want to help you stay informed through every step of the process and make the decision that will provide the most value to your life. Here are some of the benefits of building a new custom home.


When you build a new custom home, you avoid the situation in which you inherit the problems of a previous home owner. It’s analogous to buying a used car, where you’re taking on the problems associated with the pre-owned vehicle. This can be a fun challenge for some people. But unless you are prepared to undertake a list of improvements, building a new home will likely be a much more rewarding, comforting, and valuable experience for you. When you work with Echterling Builders to build a custom home, you will be involved in the process. You will get to put your unique sensibilities into the house from the beginning. 

When you build a new home you also reap the benefits of brand new materials (such as roofing), which can lead to lower insurance costs. 


Municipal codes and requirements change over time, so in order to be compliant many aspects of an existing home will likely need to be updated . This means that at the time of resale, the home buyer may be faced with a potentially hefty renovation cost. When you build a new home, your resale value will be more resistant to change at the hand of outdated codes. 


Echterling Builders builds new homes on the cutting edge of energy efficiency standards. In our new homes, we use 90% LED lighting, spray foam insulation, better technology in our doors and windows, and heating/cooling units that are smaller and more energy efficient. 

The new custom home may cost more up front than a comparable existing home, but the monthly financial burden is less – which leads to savings that can compound over time. 


When you build a new home with Echterling Builders, you know your home is covered. Our warranty covers clearly-defined deficiencies so that you know exactly what kind of protection you can expect. The warranty also creates a sense of value in resale, because it is transferable. Our 10-year structural warranty helps to create an air-tight sense of security for your custom home. 


You are creating greater value for your home when you build new, especially if you build in a subdivision. You’re able to build to current styling, so you don’t have to undergo massive remodeling projects in order to remain up-to-date. Your home will maintain its value for much longer than if you were to buy and update an older home. 

We create a sense of value, not only in your new home, but also in your life.

  • Incredible! This blog looks just like my old one! It’s on a entirely different topic but it has pretty much the same page layout and design. Excellent choice of colors!

  • Hi there. I discovered your web site via Google while looking for a comparable topic, your website came up. It seems great. I have bookmarked it in my google bookmarks to come back then.

  • I never knew that building a home from the ground up gives you multiple options on how it’ll look like and which amenities you’d like inside. My brother wants to own a home to fulfil his dream of a gaming room full of consoles and computers. Maybe we should consider finding a contractor that can make his dream a reality.
