Unless money is no object, having a home custom built is an undertaking that doesn’t seem to make much sense given the slew of existing homes selling at bargain prices.
But good deals aren’t changing the minds of folks who would rather spend the money to have a home custom built, and get exactly what they want, down to the finest detail…
Chris Tsonton, president of the Home Builders Association of Greater Cleveland in Independence and owner of Pepperwood Homes in Hinckley, says custom homes are attractive to people wanting to take advantage of all the new products on the market, many of which are more energy friendly. And they would rather start from scratch than remodel or retrofit a home for size and/or energy efficiency.
“That leaves them more leisure time to do the things they enjoy, including entertaining in their new home,” Tsonton said.
