We talk about maintaining the value of your home, while enjoying the time you spend in your home. Here are some tips that will help you in making your decisions.
Before finalizing home plans and beginning construction, compare the home you’re planning with others on the same street. You never want to be the most expensive house on the block; you won’t get your money back when you sell.
Don’t Select a Builder Based Solely on Bid:
When choosing a builder, don’t select the one with either the highest or lowest bid. A high bid doesn’t guarantee a superior product and the lowest bid could mean that you’ll be hit with extra costs as construction progresses. Often, the low number is to reel you in and the extras will be tacked on later. At Croce Construction you can be sure you will receive a legitimate bid based on your project and the work will be done to your complete satisfaction.
A well-established local builder will have plenty of nearby subcontractors and suppliers to rely on, meaning no costly travel delays while waiting for out-of-town crews and materials. By hiring a Croce Construction you will find we understand your neighborhood and your needs better then others and have worked in homes similar to yours. We also understand how to deal with local government and obtain proper permits.
Build for Your Future:
When planning your home’s layout, think not only about your current lifestyle but also plan for a few years down the road. For older adults, a master bedroom on the ground floor is a smart bet. Also, including a shaft that could one day be an elevator is a good idea. The space could be used as closets now and easily converted to an elevator should the need arise.
If you have young children or planning a family, then you must take their future needs into consideration as well. A well thought out nursery can make an easy transition into a teenagers future needs. Let us help you make some of these important decisions.
Don’t Go With the Latest and Greatest:
Fill your home with technology that will stand the test of time. State-of-the-art features are great but quickly become outdated. Buy products that have been on the market for a year or two. They’re less expensive, readily available and any initial kinks and design flaws have been worked out.
Nothing betrays a home’s age like trendy, of-the-moment fixtures. Let’s say that Brazilian cherry hardwood is all the rage, then it goes out of style making your home look dated. Select fixtures and features that are classic so your home always looks current.
