When you want a house built, you have to look for a home builder. They will be able to build a house that you may spend the rest of your life in. This may be the home where you raise your children, have wonderful memories and live out your days. One of the things that you need to think about with your builder is what kind of builder for your house that you want. There are two types of builders of home to choose from; custom home builder and production home builder. These two builders build homes but they do it in a very different manner. So, when you need a construction on a home, which should you choose? To answer quickly, it is primarily based on your needs and the amount of money you can spend. However, let’s delve a little further into the differences between a productionbuilder and a custom builder of homes.
A custom builder will build on the land that you own and very few custom builders own the land they build on but they are the minority. One of the biggest advantages for a custom builder is that they build custom and unique houses that are built to a specific plan that you help create. Typically, a custom builder will build single-family houses rather than larger buildings like condos and apartments. On average, custom home builders will build 25 or fewer house in all and the homes they do build tend to be high-end homes that cost more.
A production builder will build land on property that they own. This land is bought by the builder, the home is built and then you buy the home and the plot of land from the home builder. The production builder will not build custom and unique homes and will instead build based on plans that you have limited choices over. You can choose types of counters, carpeting and extras like that but overall you buy what the builder makes without consultation. A production home builder will also build many different types of houses including rental properties, townhouses, condos and single-family houses. Unlike a custom builder, the production builder will make many more than 25 houses a year. Production home builders also build homes for all price levels, from entry-level to luxury.
