Four Reasons to Build Instead of Buy


Share this post

One of the most distinct features we offer at McCall Homes is the fact that you can build your own home here in Annafeld. While we do offer move-in-ready homes here in Annafeld, building your own home the way you want to build it is a unique experience, and we wanted to give you four reasons why you should build your own instead of buying it.

Owning a Home or Owning Your Home

Owning a home has always been one of the most satisfying and rewarding experiences a couple can enjoy, ever. It is up there with the graduation of your child, probably! When you build your home, you are not only owning a home, you will be owning your home, a home that you designed yourself. Building your own home takes that special experience of buying your first home, and multiplies it by 10!

Your Needs, Your Decisions

At McCall Homes, we offer you 18 different plans, each with different sizes and shapes. But it is not only about selecting the floor plan. You also have other options, like detaching or attaching the garage or building a larger garage instead of the standard two-car garage. You can also get a fireplace if you want to. You can even change the type of roof you want for your home, with or without an attic, and how big you want it to be. 


Something often overlooked by new homeowners is the fact that your house needs to be up-to-date with the current newest building codes. When you buy an older house, chances are some things may not be up to code. And to make your old home compliant with the new regulations, you might have to pay for very expensive repairs and renovations!

Unleash Your Inner Architect On A Budget

When you build your own home, you can tell the story of every nook and cranny in your home because you yourself have made it happen. And you will make this happen for the price of buying a ready-made home. If you wanted to build a home from scratch, it would have cost you almost twice as much as buying an already existing home. With our pre-made floor plans and expertise, you will not have to incur the costs of building a home from scratch!
