Seeking a new home can be extremely exciting yet equally stressful, so its important that you are completely happy with your choice of property. Realistically, this is seldom possible and many compromises usually have to be made in the process. The location may be ideal with picturesque views, yet there is no garden, no good local schools, tiny bedrooms or other disappointments. There can be any number of things you would love to change in order for a new home to suit you and your family perfectly. Even when you think you have finally found the best property for you, there is still the potential risk to your happiness of the property chain! According to reports one in three purchases fall apart due to a number of complications, leading to frustration.
Many people are now opting to build their own homes, which gives them a great deal of choice in just about every aspect of their new home. They can decide on the positioning of the building, amount and size of rooms, type of kitchen and bathroom installation, overall design and style of landscaping. This puts potential home owners in the driving seat which ultimately results in a higher rate of satisfaction.
Government support of the choice to self build has been extremely evident recently, with substantial funding made available for these projects and tax exemptions put in place. The move to encourage people to build their own homes is hoped to bring the UK in line with other European countries such as Austria, where 80% of all homes are self built. Half of all the homes constructed in Germany and Belgium are also self build.
It is an exciting prospect to design and build your own idea of perfection, knowing it will be handed down from generation to generation.
