There’s something fun about the thought of building a new home from the ground up. For many, there’s also something daunting and scary about the thought. When it comes to a home, many people choose to buy an existing home rather than build new. Reasons for this could include lot availability, locations, lower costs, less hassle, and less “unknowns”.
