As you look at homes for sale in North Scottsdale, many of them might start to blend together. After all, many neighborhoods have the same floor plans for sale, complete with similar exteriors. If you want to avoid living on a street where all the houses look the same, it’s time to consider custom and semi-custom homes. Fortunately, DC Ranch has both! Now you just need to decide which option is best by learning the benefits of each.
Why Buy a Custom Home?
If you have a long list of features you want in your next house, a custom home might be right for you. This type of house can be built exactly to your specifications. With a typical tract home, the builder gives you few choices when it comes to the materials and colors for your countertops and cabinets. But with custom homes, you can choose any material or color you want for the countertops and cabinets in your kitchen and bathrooms, so you’re not limited.
Of course, selecting your own finishes is not the only custom home advantage. You also get to design your own floor plan, with the help of professional architects and designers. This allows you to be as picky as you want, so if you would like every bedroom to have a walk-in closet and attached bathroom, you’ve got it. If you want a basement with a wet bar, or a casita for your guests, you can just include it in the design.
You can even choose the land where your custom home in North Scottsdale will be. Whether you’re looking for a custom home in DC Ranch or on the eighth hole of one of Arizona’s premium golf communities, you can choose the perfect location for you. Once you decide how large the lot should be, you will find out how much space will be in between you and your neighbors, which is not an option in many traditional neighborhoods full of tract homes. For example, The Country Club Village within DC Ranch offers custom homes on lots from .75 acres to more than 2 acres.
Why Buy a Semi-Custom Home?
As great as it can be to have a lot of choices as you build your home, the custom building process can be time-consuming and overwhelming for some. If you want to narrow down some of your options to make your decisions a little easier, semi-custom may be the way to go. Instead of having unlimited options for the exterior trim, the flooring, or the kitchen countertops, you can choose from a list of choices. Of course, the list is longer for a semi-custom home than it is for a tract home, giving you a happy medium of some choices without being overwhelming.
The other advantage of buying a semi-custom home for sale in North Scottsdale is that it will take less time to design and build your house than it would with a custom home. This is because you don’t design your home from scratch; you choose from existing blueprints and then make any adjustments you want from there. This means you could be in your new home within months when you take this route, saving you time and money.
