Choosing where you are next going to live is a big decision. Moving is costly and time consuming, so while it is very exciting, it is also something you want to get right, to ensure you end up with the home of your dreams, somewhere you can be very happy for many years to come. Perhaps the first decision you will make is whether to buy a property that is already built, or a plot of land upon which to build your own house. There is no one answer as to which option is the best, it depends on your circumstances and your own personal preferences. Here are some of the benefits of each option, that may help you to make this important decision…

The benefits of buying a house

You can move straight in

The great thing about a house that is already built is that you don’t have to wait around, you can move right in, making the process so easy. If you are moving for a new job, or for extra space because you are expecting a baby, you will likely want to take the quicker option of a ready to move into home.

Usually more central

If you want to be in the heart of a city or town, close to amenities and transport links, then you are more likely to find what you are looking for if you check out ready built homes, as plots in city centres don’t come along so often.

The grounds will be well established

If you love your garden, you may prefer to choose a property with landscaped outdoor space that has matured over several years. When you build your own home, of course you can include a yard too though it can take a long time to achieve your dream garden if you are waiting for plants and trees to grow.

The benefits of buying a plot

You can design it exactly as you want it

There is no need to compromise when you build your own home. You won’t have to worry that one of the bedrooms is a little on the small side, or that your lovely large American style fridge freezer won’t fit in the kitchen, as you can design your home with all these things in mind.

Everything is brand new

When you build your home, of course everything is new, so you will have a range of guarantees if anything goes wrong. This comes in addition to that lovely feeling of every single aspect of your property being fresh and unused. No one else has lived there before, neither used any of the furniture or house appliances.

Ultra-modern and environmentally sound

When you build a new residence from scratch, you can take advantage of the very latest technologies and innovations to ensure you build an energy efficient home that will save you money and will contribute towards a greener and healthier planet too. At the same time, it is the small details that can make your life just a little bit easier, such as some extra plug sockets right where you need them and USB charging points for your gadgets. You can choose to install a built-in speaker system or a high-tech security system. Many older homes are lacking such facilities, though these have nowadays become basic needs for some people.
