3 Advantages Custom Homes Have Over The Current Market

Advantage #1: Wider location options

A major benefit of building a custom home is that you can build it wherever you want!

Location is everything, but when you’re looking for a home on the current market in an area that suits your wants and needs, you’re limited by what’s available.

Custom homes, however, bring with them the greater flexibility to choose where you want to live. In the Collingwood area, for example, you can choose to be a bit more secluded for increased privacy without sacrificing proximity to all the amenities of a city neighbourhood.

For more on this, consider our Handy Checklist For Buying Land To Build a House.


The freedom to choose where to build is a huge advantage that custom homes have over existing builds.


Advantage #2: The ability to build a dream home

By definition, custom homes are unique dwelling spaces that are designed specifically for their owners.

Not only can you choose a particular location, but you can customize your home to your vision for it. Everything from theme to layout, and all fixtures from floor to ceiling, and all points in between can be designed according to your specifications.

From the early stages of the process, you can meet with your custom home builder to discuss dreams and budget.

The next step is to meet with a designer, an experienced craftsman, to discuss preparing preliminary drawings to your specifications (unless of course you already have drawings that you would like to work with).

These drawings will be reviewed and reworked as needed to ensure your total satisfaction with the final product. The design stage is not complete until you're satisfied.

As the home is being built, you will be guided through the process of making selections for all internal and external home materials, colours, and design elements.

Advantage #3: Quality assurance

Custom homes bring with them the backing of the builder, whose continued good reputation will be at stake based on the success of the project.

L. Patten & Sons, for example, is a proud member of the Tarion New Home Warranty Program, meaning your investment is protected from the time of deposit to possession and beyond.

Prior to your possession date, you will meet with the us on site to do an inspection of the home. Together, we will note any deficiencies or seasonal work that may not be complete.

Warranties, service call schedules, and operation of systems within your home will be reviewed with you, resulting in peace of mind and a smooth transition into your new home.

Custom homes offers a level of quality assurance that isn’t offered by builders mass erecting homes in urban areas.
