To say the real estate market in the Carolinas is booming would be an understatement. For decades, metropolitan areas in the state like Charlotte, Raleigh, and the Triad have been some of the fastest-growing cities in the country. Asheville, Wilmington, Boone, and many of the smaller cities have expanded substantially in the last twenty years.
Since 2020, the rise in working remotely has given people the freedom to choose to live in places that suit their lifestyles. With an abundance of natural beauty and access to the great outdoors, towns like North Wilkesboro, Wilkesboro, West Jefferson, Statesville, Morganton, and Hickory are now growing as quickly as ever.
North Wilkesboro was featured by USA Today as one of America’s “Zoom Towns,” or places benefiting from the rise of the remote office place. The journalist writes:
“As millions of workers have adapted to remote work in the past year because of the COVID-19 pandemic, small towns across the country have welcomed new residents, who suddenly can live and work where they choose rather than where their jobs dictate.”
People are choosing to call our area home, drastically impacting the housing market. In the best of times, shopping for a house is challenging. You know you’re not going to find everything you need and want in an existing house. You know you’re going to have to make compromises. You can typically negotiate accordingly and find some comfort in potentially getting a great deal.
That’s not the case today. You’re likely going to have to bid above the asking price for a chance on a home that meets even some of your criteria. And you’re going to have to put your bid in quickly. If you don’t yet live in the area, you might have to put in your offer sight-unseen. That’s leading more and more people to ask themselves whether it would be better to find some land and build a home.
ExCo Design – Build is here to help answer that question. Should you build a custom turn-key luxury home in our area?
What is Turn-Key Luxury Home Design and Build?
We use the term “turn-key” to describe our custom luxury home building process. This phrase helps us convey that we are not merely crafting a quality home but a luxury experience from beginning to end. In this article, we want to dive a little deeper into what we mean when we say we design and build turn-key luxury homes and how that benefits each of our clients.
Why Many Home Building Projects Are Frustrating:
According to the Washington Post, many who set out to build a custom home give up on the project:
“[A] high percentage of prospective home buyers start out thinking they may want to build a custom home but then end up buying an already built “spec” home or working directly with a builder to modify a home that is in the process of being built.”
The process, per the article, is daunting and confusing, and custom home buyers often start in the wrong place. Many seek to purchase a lot first, then find an architect, and then hire a builder. What they don’t realize is they are competing for desirable lots with spec home builders and developers while possibly overlooking property with potential because they don’t have the eye of an experienced luxury home builder.
Why You Shouldn’t Give Up on Your Dream Home
It’s virtually impossible to find a pre-existing home in the location you want that has everything you want inside and out. Even with extensive renovation, you will have to make sacrifices and compromises. You can have the home of your dreams. You don’t have to compromise on the needs and desires of your family. And, you can have a great experience.
The key is a turn-key custom luxury home design and build.
