The reasons why you SHOULDN’T build your own home:

Let’s start with the bad side of things: the reasons why you should buy an existing property rather than building your own. One of the main reasons why people prefer to go down this route is quite simple: it is less stressful. Not only this, but you are likely to benefit from mature trees and landscaping, you can negotiate on a price (meaning you will often get a better deal), and you are more likely to benefit from neighborhood amenities, too.

This is not always the case when building your own home, as this often means buying a plot of land, which tends to be in an area that is not as developed yet. Moreover, the cost of building your own property is likely to be much more expensive.

  1. I built the home I’m living in, and I swore I would never do it again. I think i’m going to stick to that promise. However, it perhaps should be an experience everyone goes through once just so they can say, “I’m never doing that again!”
