This Laurel Oak model custom-built home by Vertical | Design + Build exemplifies substance and style. 

Whether you are buying or building a home it is going to be a major investment of time and money.  You may be contemplating if you should buy an existing home or have a home built. The housing market is currently quite competitive for buyers.  So much so that it can be very discouraging.  Some start thinking that having a new home built may be the way to go.  We get it, it is a big decision.  Which is the right choice for you? 

Do your research.  Look at the pros and cons of both buying an existing home and building a new home.  One component that most people look at is the time factor.  Building a new house can take approximately 7 months.  However, closing on an existing house can take about 48 days.  This really may not be an issue if you are not in a rush to move out of your current home. Vertical | Design + Build can show you what the home build process will look like.

For first-time homebuyers, buying an existing house may be the best way to go. On the other hand, if you are an experienced homebuyer you may like all of the benefits that come with building a home.  With a new home build, you will have the opportunity to customize the home to fit your needs.  You will not be looking at the maintenance costs of buying an older home such as adding a new roof in a couple of years or replacing the HVAC system.  When you have your home built, it is all brand new and you will be the first to live in it.  If you do decide to sell it, the resell value is going to be to your advantage because you are the only one that has ever lived in the custom-built home. 

The private gated entrance adds to the prestige of this luxurious custom-built home.  Professionally curated landscaping perfectly complements this lovely home.

Let’s talk about the fact when you have a new home built, it will be energy-efficient, especially when you build with Vertical | Design + Build.  We go above and beyond to make sure the homes we build are built with energy-efficient materials and systems.  Having lower energy costs is a big win, especially here in Florida.  You may not get that energy efficiency benefit with an older home.

Ultimately, it comes down to what appeals to you and what meets your needs.  Each family or person's needs are different.  No matter if you are a first-time homebuyer or an experienced homebuyer you know where your value and quality standards stand in the home buying world and Vertical | Design + Build stands for value and quality.
