Building your home vs Buying your home

Building your home vs Buying your home

Millenia ago, our ancestors moved from land to land, constantly on the move. Over time, with the discovery of agriculture, humans started settling down and building community and culture. Fast forward thousands of years later, and there are diverse communities and cultures all over the world. And, thanks to advances in transportation, easily moving to different states or countries is now a possibility for many. With all these options, it may be hard to find where you want to settle down for the rest of your life, but you’ve hit the jackpot once you find it. The Rio Grande Valley is rich in history and culture, with great areas to choose from. Once you find where you want to stay and build your life, Infinity Homes can come in and help you build your home.  

 

What might be the burning question when it first comes to getting your forever home: Do you buy a house, or do you build it? Each option has its advantages and disadvantages, and Infinity Homes is here to help make the decision a little easier. While we specialize in building homes, we can also help you find available homes that we’ve previously built for communities and subdivisions. 

 

Building your home: 

Pros: 

  • Completely customizable. From floor plans to colors, all the power is in your hands. 
  • No need to worry about repairs and replacements inherited from a previously owned home. 
  • No competition against other home buyers 

Cons: 

  • There may be unexpected costs that increase the price of the build. 
  • It takes an average time of 7 months to build a home. 
  • A lot more decisions to make, including landscaping. 

 

Buying your home: 

Pros: 

  • You’ll be able to move in much sooner. The average time closes a purchase on a home is 45 days. 
  • Landscaping is finished. 
  • You can negotiate to a lower sale price. 

 

Cons: 

  • You may have to compromise on certain aspects of your home, leading to buyer’s remorse later on. 
  • There may be a lot of housing market competition, especially if you are looking in a highly sought-out neighborhood. 
  • Any changes you want to make will take time and money, outside of already paying for the house. 

 

We hope this brief overview can help you decide which option would better suit you and your needs, whether you live in Edinburg, McAllen, Mission, or even Brownsville! Infinity Homes is here to help.
