Are You Ready to Build a New Home?

Reasons Why You Shouldn't Wait

5 signs that your ready to build your next home from McLean & McLean Custom Homes

Here are five signs that you're ready to build your next home!

1. You Need Space

Whether your family has officially outgrown your current home or you're drooling over the thought of a larger deck or a home office, it's a sign that it's time for an upgrade! One of the many benefits of hiring a custom home builder is that you can decide what features to incorporate into your new home that best suits your family's needs. Outgrowing your home should be viewed as a great opportunity, not a headache. If you're feeling like your running out of space, building is probably the way to go!

2. You are Interested in a Specific Area

So you have fallen in love with a neighborhood - it's close to work, walking distance from your children's school and a couple minutes away from your must need amenities. Sounds great, what's the problem? Finding the perfect house in your perfect neighborhood is unfortunately easier said than done. Building your next home allows you to have more control over choosing the area that you love and then you can switch your focus onto what you want your home to be. If the idea of living in a new neighborhood excites you, you are ready to start building your dream home!

3. You Have a Bigger Budget

You have run the numbers and came to the conclusion that you're financially stable enough to move to a bigger and better home! Having a higher budget will ensure that your home is everything you want it to be and more, even a small budget can get you great things. Most people assume that building a home is more expensive then purchasing an already built, but it is often the opposite! Settling into a new home should be an exciting time but unfortunately for many they feel a strong sense of buyer's remorse, not because they bought a home but because they are not financially where they wanted to be.

4. You Don't Want to Deal With Surprises

We can all agree that older homes have their charm, but often behind their charm is an abundance of hidden problems. Broken plumbing, gross mold and even cracks in the foundation are not as charming. Your home will be built with new materials and hopefully under warranty so you don't have to worry about expensive repairs in the future. Building a new home reduces your chances of unwanted surprises and helps your stress levels significantly because let's face it, moving into your new home should be a fun experience!

5. You Have a "Dream Home" Board on Pinterest

We live in the Pinterest age which means many of us have unrealistic expectations that just can't be achieved with an older styled home. If you're like the average Pinterest user that means you have a dream home board that you drool over daily. When you go through the home building process you can actually make your virtual dream home a reality!

"We couldn't be happier with the finishes"
"We were so pleased with the new house M & M designed and built for my husband and I. Every detail that we felt important was included in the project and we couldn't be happier with the finishes. It was like an HGTV show!

"Stress free"
If you are looking for a stress-free building experience, look no further for a builder. Right from start to finish, we can't say enough about how smoothly everything went. From the builders to their contractors, everyone was so helpful and easy to deal with. No question ever went unanswered and they stand behind their work. We would recommend McLean and McLean to anyone looking to purchase a custom home.

"You have built our dream home!"
We want to thank you for bringing our vision to life. You have built our dream home! You were on site daily to make sure everything was progressing as planned and ensuring no details were forgotten. From the preliminary stages through to the end, we could see the integrity that you have and it is evident through your entire construction team. It was a pleasure getting to know your family and we would absolutely recommend you to any of ours.

"Beautiful home with high-end finishes"
We had never built a home before. We got a couple home designs that we liked off of the internet and they had an architect put what we liked best about the two designs together into one house plan. Scott and Michelle were very supportive about what we envisioned and provided their expertise and advice to us along the way. Their crew was excellent to work with and very accommodating whenever we wanted to check in on things. The build was right on time and the end result was as we had hoped; beautiful home with high-end finishes, classic with clean lines and, most of all, welcoming and comfortable for our family, friends and guests.
