Vancouver, British Columbia being home to some of the most affluent and influential people in the world is absolutely jam-packed with luxury homes and extravagant pieces of real estate. When you take all things into consideration, it’s really no surprise that the housing market in this part of the world has boomed so dramatically in such a short period of time. After all – you’ve got the beaches, mountains, world-class restaurants, and pretty much anything you could want all within an hours drive. For this reason, this city is adored by most people who visit.
Getting a luxury home built in this region of Canada is extremely common and the process has become relatively seamless over the past few years. Whether you’re in need of something modern, chic, and elegant – or you’re looking for something more rugged, old-school, but still luxuriously timeless, we’ve got you covered. Having over two decades of experience in the industry, we know what it takes to fulfil our clients wishes and bring their dream luxury homes to life.
Why Build A Luxury Home Rather Than Buy In Vancouver?
There are many reasons as to why one might prefer to build their own luxury home rather than buy one that was previously built. First and foremost, you get to design your home to your liking. If you’re like most people who build their own homes, you plan on living in said home for the long-haul and possibly even decades. If this rings true, then it will make perfect sense that you would have more to gain by building your dream home as you imagine it. By doing this, you can truly enjoy the house you’ll be living in to the fullest for a pretty sizeable chunk of your life. Sure, you might already be prepared to make some compromises and move into an already-built home that checks of almost all your needs and desires, but you can never be 100% sure of how that will turn out in the future.
On top of having everything laid out exactly to your liking, there’s one big factor to take into consideration that doesn’t get mentioned nearly as often as it should. No matter how you slice it- when you buy a home from a previous owner, you are buying something that has deteriorated on some level. Regardless of whether the home was 5 years old or 35 years old; a previously built home will be broken down, to an extent. You can never know for sure what the previous owner(s) had done to it in their time and you’ll never be certain about how much longer certain things will last before inevitably needing to be replaced. This can mean things like roofs, siding, foundations, etc.
When you build your own home from scratch, you can be 100% certain that all things are freshly built with the best materials. You do not have to worry about things breaking down on you as you can have confidence that your home was built to last and that you will take care of it.
Is Building A Luxury Home In Vancouver Tedious?
One concern that is pretty common in this industry is the question of if getting your dream luxury home built will be a tedious and painful process. Depending on how much man-power a given construction company is able to free up and the schedule of the buyer, a luxury home can be fully completed rather quickly. On the short end of the spectrum, you could be looking at 4-8 months and on the long end, you might end up waiting 12-18 months. A lot will depend on the design of the home, requests that you’ll make, and various other factors.
The most tedious part of this process for most people will actually be their custom design process. When you’re starting from nothing at all, it can be easy to get overwhelmed at the sheer amount of choices you have. Do you want granite, tile, or even marble? Do you want extra high ceilings, and what kind of layout are you thinking of for the basement? These are all basic things that you’ll need to find the answers to if you are someone that is looking to have a luxury home built. While it can be tedious, we’ll do our best to guide you along the way and help you make the best decisions possible given your budget and desires.
How Much Will It Cost Me To Have My Custom Home Built?
The answer to this question will depend on several different factors. There is a very wide range when it comes to budget planning and estimated cost of luxury homes that we built. For a basic, conservative project, you could be looking to spend as ‘little’ as $500,000 – $750,000. However, this is rarely the case for many of our clients and certain individuals can be looking to spend multiple millions of dollars. Again, it is quite difficult to place an accurate estimate on the cost of building a custom home because it generally varies greatly from project to project.
