A custom home is a unique home designed and built for a homeowner. These homes are drafted and built from the ground up according to the owner’s ideas. A custom builder allows the owners to help layout the floorplan as well as choices in paint colors, countertops and much more.
A buyer that wants to customize aspects of a home is a great candidate for a custom home. Often, custom homes become part of a family and is handed down to many future generations.
A spec home is built from plans that are already pre-determined by the builder. In most cases, buyers don’t have as much say in floorplan and interior design. However, spec homes can appeal to a variety of needs for families, empty nesters or professional couples relocating for work.
Buyers who don’t have the time for a custom build or are relocating for a new job are a good fit for spec homes. If buyers expect to live in the home for a temporary time frame, a spec home could be the right fit.
If buyers are going to live in the home for a long time and want a better quality of home, build custom. Home offices for remote jobs are more popular due to Covid. Therefore, it would make sense to have a custom home built to match that specific need.
