Luxury Real Estate Trends – Buying Custom Homes
Life after retirement has certainly taken on a new meaning in recent years. As Baby Boomers have become empty-nesters, the concept of keeping your home that you raised your kids in for the rest of your life, has become a thing of the past. Today’s luxury homebuyers who are retired have other plans in mind, ushering in a new attitude when it comes to selling the family home in search of new endeavors.
After the kids have left the nest, a couple’s home is often no longer what they need. They may want three or four bedrooms, for when family visits, but don’t want to deal with the maintenance and upkeep on older homes.
There’s a lot to consider if you’re interested in selling your home and upgrading to something more modern.
Why Choose a Custom Home?
Custom, luxury homes have created a new experience for homeowners in recent years. Having a home built that’s customized to meet your own unique needs is a wonderful way to ensure you never want to move to another house again. Plus, with certain communities, such as The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Dove Mountain, there are extra perks to homeownership, like the ability to have The Ritz-Carlton staff take care of your yard work, laundry and other maintenance.
If you own your existing home outright, you’ve probably been in your home for many years, and since the housing market has strengthened in much of the country, you’ll likely come out on top if you sell your house, allowing you to put that money into your custom luxury home.
What are the Benefits of Buying a Luxury Custom Home?
By definition, a custom home will allow you to build a space that’s specially designed for you. Here’s a look at some of the features you may find beneficial as you begin your build:
Architects and designers can build a home that’s adaptable to any physical restrictions you may have. Additionally, you can create a home that’s designed to make your life easier as you grow older. Customized homes can include:
- Wider first-floor spaces and hallways to better accommodate mobility devices;
- Outdoor ramps at front entrances to allow ease of access for walkers or wheelchairs;
- Lower kitchen cabinets to prevent food and dishes from being stored out of reach;
- Bathrooms that enable people with physical disabilities to use the shower, tub, or toilet independently.
If there’s something you’ve always wished your current home had, now is the time to speak up. With a little forethought, your customized home can easily be modified for different stages of your life. Your current home would likely require costly renovations, and an apartment simply has too many restrictions to be altered significantly.
By building a brand new home, you know everything that comes with it is new, too. Everything that could cost you a fortune in an older home is fresh out of the box, so to speak, and shouldn’t require maintenance for many years to come. If you were to purchase an older home, consider how much you might spend on:
- A new roof
- Plumbing and wiring repairs
- Foundation problems
- Mechanical system breakdowns
Your brand new home will give you peace of mind, and many builders offer a warranty for new builds, should something go wrong soon after you move in.
