“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.

Questions to consider

  1. Do I have a hard time making decisions?                                       Yes or No
  2. Once I make decisions, do I struggle with wanting to change them?      Yes or No
  3. Am I a perfectionist?     Yes or No
  4. Is my schedule so busy it’s difficult to find time to do the things we enjoy? Yes or No
  5. Does uncertainty and lack of control add stress to my life? Yes or No
  6. Are we regularly disappointed by interactions with other people? Yes or No
  7. Do we handle conflict by looking for the win/win situation?  Yes or No
  8. Do we have some available time in our life for the next two or three years? Yes or No
  9. Are we realistic enough to recognized that things aren’t always perfect?    Yes or No
  10. Is our family life stable enough to handle the additional activity? Yes or No

If you answered “NO” to the first six questions and “YES” to the last four, your READY to build! If not, you may want to consider waiting on the building process. If your answers were different on more than three or four questions, Bruce suggest you buy a house that is already build at this point of your life.
