Are you considering building a new home but aren’t sure if you want to build a custom home or not? This post explores the pros and cons of both production homes and custom homes so you can be fully confident in your decision.

Production Homes: PROS

Production home communities feature a limited series of home designs with the same floor plan and exterior design elements over and over again. These kinds of homes are usually seen in larger neighborhoods in established suburban areas. In Florida, these types of developments are popular due to the accessibility and amenities included in the community. Most production home communities will feature an exclusive builder throughout.

Production homes are an extremely cost-effective way to own a new construction home. The timelines for production homes are usually accelerated over custom builds due to the limitation in selections and floor plans. If having a lot of choices and decisions to make causes you stress, a production home may be the right decision for you.

Production Homes: CONS

In a production home community, many homes look similar on the outside and are often labeled as “cookie-cutter.” These communities often have smaller lots and give the homes the appearance of being on top of each other.

Custom Built Homes: PROS 

The benefits of building a custom home include personalization and flexibility in the process. A custom home builder will work with you to design your dream home. They provide you with the options and the variety of selections available to accommodate your desires for your new home, from the kind of countertops in the kitchen to the type of outdoor entertainment space, the right builder will make it happen. 

Custom Built Homes: CONS

Having a say in floor plans, design elements, and finishes comes at a cost. Custom built homes tend to be more expensive than production homes and a longer timeline for completion should be expected. In the end, you will be living in a beautiful home that is just the way you want it.
