Is it more expensive to build a custom Home?2017-11-01T02:01:16+00:00

It is not necessarily more expensive to build a custom home. First of all, you control the amount of money spent and how it is allocated which allows you to build a home that meets your needs and specifications. Another thing to consider is your utility expenses. One benefit to building with Walden Homes is we think green. We build our homes to be as energy efficient as possible by using energy star appliances, high R-value insulation, double pane vinyl windows and much more. See our Standards list. This means big savings in your homes operating costs. Most of our homeowners have moved from smaller to larger homes and have seen significantly lower energy bills in their Walden Home. Most importantly, consider that building a home is usually the largest purchase you will make and thus your biggest investment. A custom home will always appreciate better and hold its value longer than a production home. Why settle for a house when you could build your dream home.
