Building Your Own Home From Start To Finish

The housing market is a mess right now. It’s filled with properties that people buying homes can’t afford. If you’re looking for your dream home, it probably isn’t on the market. If it is, it’s most likely not in your price range. Even buying with a loan won’t get most people the home that they want or imagined. That’s why many people are instead looking into building their home. Building your home is perhaps easier than you imagined. It used to be a possibility that was only available to the rich but now everyone can afford it. There are plenty of businesses offering this possibility, but we’re getting ahead of ourselves. On this post, you’ll find a complete guide to building your own home.

Plan What You Want
The first thing that you should do is plan what you want your new home to be like. You should think about how many rooms you want and what unique features you would like built in. Perhaps you would like a swimming pool in your backyard? If you bought a home you would probably be looking at paying well over a million for this possibility. But, since you are building your home, it can be fitted into a budget that is far more reasonable. Think about everything you want in your new home and forget about price for now. We’ll worry about that later.

Design A Budget
You then need to think about the absolute maximum you’ll be willing to spend on this new home. That might include a potential loan that you could take out. Remember, you don’t have to pay for the home right from your own pocket. Similar to buying a new home, you can borrow some of the funds. This is typically the only way most people can afford to build a brand new property. Write down a number that you are comfortable with and work with that. Again, it might be amended at a late stage, but you don’t have to worry right now.

Find A Builder
Your next step to take is to find a builder to create your home for you. You should be looking for a company who will take the job on from start to finish. Don’t settle for a company that will complete half the job for you and expect you to sort out the rest. When a home has been built it should be ready to live in without any extra work from you. That’s the job that you’ll be paying them for. Be careful when you hire a builder because you need a team that you can trust. It’s important that you don’t make the mistake of falling for the promises of a scam company. We recommend you look into Roe Builders. They are a great company that could provide everything you’re looking for.

Buying Land
Once you’ve arranged a building team, they will work with you on a budget you’ve chosen. They’ll tell you what you can and can’t afford based on your budget, and they shouldn’t pull any punches. After that, it’s time to buy the land. You need to choose a place to build your home. We recommend you buy land in an area where there is already development. That way your new home can be part of a new planned community.

When you walk through the door of your finished home, we guarantee you’ll be walking into the house of your dreams.

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO...
