Quick Move-In vs. Custom Home

Quick Move-In vs. Custom Home

Posted on June 4, 2019

Trying to decide if you want a move-in-ready home, or custom designed retreat perfect for your family? What fits your stage of life? Below are some points to think about as you decide if you’re ready to buy an already built, quick move-in home at Mariposa or construct a gorgeous custom home. There are pros to both options, but here are a few considerations:

Quick Move-In:

  • Simple and Stress-Free
  • According to US News & World Report, buying an existing home is less stressful than building a new home. No need to spend time researching what you want. You already know what exists. No worry about zoning laws as well.

  • Ready to go
  • Appliances and other features are already in an existing home. The potential for major delays from construction crews is not an issue since it’s already built.

  • Less Expensive
  • According to the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), the average cost of building a new single-family home is more expensive than purchasing an existing home.

    Custom Home:

  • Exactly What You Want
  • Let’s face it, a new customized home designed with your specifications, is quite a selling point. You’ll be able to get exactly what you’ve always dreamed of in a home.

  • Building is Easier Than You Think
  • Mariposa’s reputable builders have terrific track records of delivering custom homes built to exact specifications in a timely manner. Your project can be executed at the cost and deliverables you choose.

  • Brand New
  • You won’t have to sink money into updating electrical systems, fixing aging materials or bringing items up to code. And, you may want to incorporate the newest green building innovations or other upgrades.
    Mariposa’s quick move-in homes offer desirable floor plans and popular amenities based on solid experience and a strong design sense.
