If You’re Ready to Build a Home in the Houston Area, Chesmar Is Ready to Get to Work
Has the time come to purchase a house in the Houston area? At Chesmar Homes, we know the prospect of home ownership can elicit a lot of strong emotions. On the one hand, there’s the excitement of starting the next phase of your life. On the other, there’s the anxiety that comes with making such a major investment. One question you’re probably wrestling with is whether you should purchase a previously owned home, or have someone build a new home for you. While it’s only natural for your pulse to quicken when driving past a house for sale that seems perfect for you, there are many reasons to keep your emotions in check.
Why Choosing to Build a Home is Often the Better Option
While preexisting homes usually offer the advantage of being move-in ready, there are a number of inherent drawbacks to buying one. These include:
- Structural damage – Although every home must pass an inspection before it can be sold, hidden issues such as mold and mildew growth, corroded wiring, and termite damage can go unnoticed. Even newly renovated homes can be structurally unsound if most of the “upgrades” were merely cosmetic.
- Cramped floorplans – Older homes often have small kitchens walled off from the dining area, low ceilings, and inadequate closet space. All of Chesmar’s new homes have open floorplans, vaulted ceilings, and big, beautiful closets.
- Lack of customization – Buying a preexisting house can mean settling for things you’re less than thrilled with, such as lower-grade countertops and poorly configured cabinets. Sure, you can make changes after moving in, but that requires money and dealing with construction disruptions. When you partner with Chesmar to build a home for you, you’ll be able to tailor it to suit your aesthetic preferences from the get-go.
Once you’ve weighed your options, we think the choice will be clear. All of our homes offer an exceptional level of comfort, style, and of course livability.
