Build Your Own Home: How To Make Your Miami Dream Home A Reality
So you’re ready to buy a home in Miami? Fantastic. You’ve picked one of the most diverse, vibrant, and exciting cities for your future home, and you’re going to love the life and passion and adventure the city has to offer. But if you’re new to buying real estate, it could seem a bit overwhelming. Condo or townhome? On the beach or downtown? Yard or no yard? On the water or inland?
There are so many questions to ask and things to consider when buying a new home, but there is one question you may have not considered yet: Why not build your own home?
Modular homes are hot right now in the Miami real estate market, especially among millennials, first-time homebuyers, and investors. These customizable homes are built in one location and then transported (very carefully) to their final destination and set on a solid foundation on an empty lot. This cuts construction time roughly in half, allowing you to get into your home much faster than building a traditional home from the ground up.
Have you ever found the perfect home, but you’re not crazy about the location? Or you find a beautiful piece of land, but aren’t fond of the actual home? Modular homes allow buyers to construct the home of their dreams on the lot of their dreams. And they offer far more control in the home-buying process. Here’s how it’s done:
- Pick the property: In order to purchase a modular home, you need a place to put it. You must own the land where you’re planning on building the home. The difference between a modular home and a manufactured home is that a modular home is placed on a permanent foundation and can’t be moved, so it’s vital that you love the spot you pick.
- Decide on the space: The great thing about modular homes is that you customize them to meet your needs. Instead of buying a four bedroom when you really wanted a five, or settling on a two story when you wanted something smaller, you can decide how much space you need when you build your own home. You have a say in the floor plan and layout, so you can really be in control of how the home works for you and your lifestyle
- Find a builder: It is vital that you find a builder who is knowledgeable, experienced, and trustworthy. Shop around to find a builder who you feel comfortable with. Ask for a tour of houses they’ve built in the past to get an idea of what they can provide. Ask questions about upgrades, what is NOT included, and what you can do to customize your home even more. At Urban Infill, we offer guidance and expertise while leaving buyers in charge.
- Hurry up and wait: Once the land is picked out and your home is designed, you can sit back and wait for your home sweet home to be complete. Usually, modular homes have a much faster construction time than traditional houses, so you’ll be able to move in and enjoy your house faster than you think. When it’s all set, you can hire a decorator to really jazz the place up, or you can put your own touch of personality and style into the home that was built for you.
Never before has it been so affordable, so easy and so convenient to build your own home. Urban Infill is focused on helping you create a home that is unique to you, in a city that flows with your lifestyle and fits your personality.
