“Should We Build or Should We Buy an Existing Home?”

Bruce Upchurch Should we build or buy

Before you begin the process of building your custom home, a serious question should be considered and answered!

“Should We Build or Should We Buy an Existing Home?”

In a consumer-driven economy, many families have been stretched and stressed because the timing wasn’t right or they weren’t the right profile of person to be building a custom home. They would have been better off buying an existing home than going through a process that wasn’t suited for their life stage, temperament, or timing.

“To build or to buy.” That should be your primary question to answer.

To help you decide, ask these 10 important questions… Be very honest. Answer each one carefully. Keep in mind there are NO right or wrong answer. You’re simply trying to determine the best course of action at this point in your life.

#1. Do you like the builder?

You are going to be spending 6-10 months working with your custom home builder. That’s a long time to live with something you don’t like. Chances are, if you get bad feelings in your initial meetings, those feelings are going to come back with a vengeance as work goes on. It is important to take personality into account when making such a big decision.

Building a custom home is a huge investment in time and resources, and there is only one chance to get it right. It’s your home. It’s your money. Make sure the custom builder you are working with appreciates that and works to make you happy. If you get bad feelings at the start, take your project elsewhere.

Where We Build

Add A Safe Room to Your New Custom Home

Consider A Safe Room When Building Your Custom Home.

Have you considered a Safe Room when building your custom home? Safe Rooms are usually the size of a large closet or pantry that is finished out with the same home décor, but the inside is built to withstand high winds and flying debris.  Bruce Upchurch uses the best quality materials when building a custom home. This is even truer when adding a safe room to their customs homes. They build them to withstand high winds and flying debris; reinforcing the walls with rebar and concrete.  If you have questions Contact Us or call 901-331=3242 | Email: bruce.upchurch@gmail.com
