Richwell Custom Homes Question of the Week

FountainWhen you’re planning your new custom home, one of the most important things that you might not think about at first is the landscaping, i.e., the “curb appeal.” Your yard and the features in it are the first thing that people see when they come to your home, so it’s something you should definitely put some thought into when you’re in the initial design phase.

Of course, you don’t want to just have a nice lawn and some pretty azaleas. After all, this is your dream home! Why not do something extraordinary to really catch the attention of passersby?

For this week’s Richwell Question of the Week, we’ve come up with three options of out-of-the-ordinary landscape features you might want to consider.

So, if you had your choice, which of these would you want for your new luxury home?

A.     Babbling brook fountain

B.     Charming gazebo

C.     Stunning perennial garden

To Build or Not to Build? That is the Question.

To build or not to buildWhen you’re looking for a home, you have the choice to build or buy. Price, time, amenities… they‘re all important. But what’s most important is that you get exactly what you want—your dream home!

Building your own house gives you the opportunity to have the home you’ve always wanted, while avoiding the hassle of maintenance that comes with buying an existing house. No aged, failing appliances or expensive updating for the plumbing and electrical wiring. Newly built homes often have minimal maintenance for the first 10 to 15 years, come with a warranty, and have up-to-date safety codes that can save you money on the utility bills.  From the latest in home technology to “green” building options, you can add what you want. It’s all up to you!

Building your own home is the best way to get that spacious kitchen you’ve always wanted, with top-of-the-line appliances;, large rooms—with a skylight in the bedroom and built-in shelves in the den; and that deluxe patio out back with the built-in grill. You dictate everything according to your own personal preference and lifestyle.

Buying a house is less time consuming and often costs less. But remember: when you build your dream home, you’re investing in yourself and you don’t have to compromise on anything.

Deciding to build or buy a home isn’t easy. It’s a big decision that you need to put a lot of thought and consideration into. So make sure you take the time to weigh the pros and cons so you can decide what’s best for you.
