custom home“To build or not to build,” a question that a lot of homeowners ask when trying to figure out whether to purchase an existing home or have a custom home built by a custom home builder in Myrtle Beach. There are a few benefits associated with purchasing an existing home compared to having a custom home built. A few notable ones include the fact that it is already move-in ready and some existing houses come with a distinctive history and could be quite nostalgic.

But, an existing house also has its own set of disadvantages. It is generally not constructed to suit everyone and it may not meet your standards. There is also a big risk that when you buy a house, you’ll find out that it has a long list of maintenance and repair issues. Existing houses don’t commonly come under warranty like new custom homes do.

Benefits Of Having A Custom Home

Complete Personalization

The most important benefit of having a new home construction is that you will have the opportunity to get what you want. With a cookie-cutter home, you won’t get a home that suits your personal preferences. Even if you find one, you’d have to search through a lot of houses before landing on the perfect one. Even after doing all the tedious search, the possibility for complete satisfaction isn’t good.

Unique Finishes

Having a custom home builder construct your dream house will make it far easier for you to add in distinctive features into the house while it is still in the planning and design stage.

By building a custom home, you will be free to design your living room to highlight a piece of heirloom furniture that’s been with you for several generations. You can also add interesting building materials. You will have limitless options.

Custom Floor Plan

With other pre-existing houses or cookie-cutter homes, what you see is what you get. Having major changes to the floor plan would warrant knocking down walls, taking care of inconveniences, and putting in a lot of time, effort, and money into getting what you want.

Do you need a bigger room? An office that you can access from outside the main home? You can get all these by building a custom home in Myrtle Beach.

Lower Costs

You will save a lot of cash while getting your dream home and that means not having to deal with doing reconfigurations, upgrades, and repairs along with spending the initial outlay to purchase a pre-existing house.

Having a custom home built will allow you to choose your own finishes, which lets you pick the style you want at a price that offers you the maximum value for your money.

Lot Optimization

If you purchase a pre-existing house, you will have no control over the design and placement of the building according to the land where it is situated. But working with a custom home builder allows you to work with architects and designers so you can take advantage of the positive features that land has to offer.

With custom homes, you can make the most out of shade and sunlight, trees, foliage, air flow patterns, orientation, and size of the available space.


Building a custom home allows you to have a home with your desired level of privacy. You have full control of the home’s orientation and other features you’d like to have in your home.
