Build or Buy?

An age-old question, should you build a house or buy a house? There are many advantages and disadvantages to both, so it will ultimately come down to what your particular situation is. Building your dream home is something everyone wants to do, but sometimes it’s just out of the question. This can be down to a number of factors, but it’s generally financial issues that are the main concern.

To build a new home there’s the cost of buying the land, employing builders and architects as well as the cost of furnishings and paint etc, then of course the whole moving process with a removals, packing and storage company. However you will be getting your dream home with everything in the home designed by you. That’s something that’s priceless. Although a house in the making can also take a long time to complete. If you want or need to be in a new place quickly there’s no doubt buying is the way to go.

Buying is also great if you have something in mind already with a figure in mind and don’t want to bother with all the drama of starting from scratch. It’s easy to blow to budget when you’re building, not so much when you buy. The downside of buying is that you probably won’t get exactly what you want, but you’ll come pretty close. You can always do some renovations at a later stage if you find yourself wishing you had a particular feature.

Also, with builing there’s not a lot a land left to build on in town, sure there’s a lot out in the country but what if you want to live in a particular suburb in London? You won’t find any land in London to build on for an affordable price that’s for sure !
