Why You Should Pre-Plan Your Custom Home

Posted by John Graziose

The Rochester area is experiencing a housing boom, leaving home buyers competing against one another for the few available homes in the area. High demand and low inventory mean buying a home can take a long time, and the home you find might not even be the home you want.

What's the solution? Work with a reputable builder like Gerber Homes to build a custom home.

Benefits of a Custom Home

Unlike existing homes that have been used for months or years by previous homeowners, custom homes offer personalized luxury. You can have a home that is built to suit your wants and needs. 

  • Built to your specifications - Work with our team to create a home that's built just for you and your family.
  • No competition. Building your own custom home eliminates competition from the home buying process. When you build a custom home, it's just you and your contractor, working together to create a home you can love forever.
  • Turn-key results. When you buy a home that someone else has lived in, you may spend several months fixing the property before moving in. When you build a custom home, it's turn-key from the minute your contractor finishes.
  • Low maintenance for years. The home that you build will likely not suffer maintenance issues for many years, because all of the systems will be brand new. What could be better?
