BUILDING A CUSTOM HOME
You know exactly what you want. You can envision your perfect home in your head. But how do you make it a reality? What are your options? Where do you start?
You’ve made a great first step. The UBuildIt System has empowered thousands of people just like you to build their own custom home. Your UBuildIt Construction Consultant will advise you through the process, giving you the control and confidence to make smart decisions that will allow you to avoid costly mistakes and build more home for your money.
Acting as your own building consultant on a do it yourself home building project means more of your construction budget goes directly to labor and materials instead of project management fees and overhead. How much more? Most of our clients build up to 25 percent more home for their money.
Builder markup on a new home ranges from about 18% to 30%. Simple math shows that even at just 20% markup, you'll be paying the builder $50,000 on a $250,000 home... that's as much as $100,000 on a $500,000 home! By building yourself, you get to keep the majority of that money in your pocket, or add more upgrades to your home.
The appraisal on your home is based on market value for homes in your area. And since the vast majority of homes are built by builders, not individuals, they all have the builder markup figured into their worth. That's good news for you because the appraiser doesn't know — and doesn't care — that you did it yourself. Presto! The home will appraise just as if you'd paid the builder markup, which means you'll find yourself instantly in an equity position!*
What you do with that equity is completely up to you. Some people upgrade their new home's furnishings. Some people choose to just sit on it and let it grow and enjoy the feeling of knowing they've just added to their net worth. Regardless, the savings that comes from building your own home is clearly one of the major benefits of taking the project on yourself.
