Austin Custom Home Builders

Austin, like any other major US city, is no stranger to the phenomenon of cookie-cutter suburban homes. But with the motto: Keep Austin Weird, the city definitely has a sizable population of homeowners who shun this type of home and community. This has attracted a good number of custom home builders to the Austin area. Plus, with the weather, lifestyle, and culture, Austin is going to continue to be a popular place to live. Even if you don't have a 78704 zip code, there's an unmistakable Austin way of life that cherishes the personal and unique. Here's some specific things to consider when hiring an Austin home builder.

Custom Home Builder: Austin, TX
Until people start looking into it, many of them wonder why more homeowners don't custom build their homes. They may know that it's more expensive, but they don't understand the process that makes custom home building so expensive. Real estate developers buy sizable chunks of land and build subdivisions because it dramatically reduces the cost when contractors can work on multiple homes at the same time. This also helps defray some of the cost of the land.

This doesn't mean you can't custom build a home in Austin proper. It just means you'll have to pay a bit more to get the same quality home with comparable amenities and installations. On the other hand, it's nearly impossible to underestimate the impact a new home has on your life as a whole. If you see yourself living in Austin the rest of your life, a custom built home is still a viable plan regardless of the cost. With real estate as it is, a new home may just look like a brilliant investment. Plus, you'll be able to construct a home with the latest green building technology, solidifying your status as a true Austinite.

The Cost of Home Building in Austin
When it comes to home building, there's no one set price that can be quoted. Cost is, naturally, a function of exactly where in Austin you're building, how big your home is, and how elaborate the design is. The national average for a custom built home is just under half a million dollars, and Austin home builders are in this ballpark.

The hidden cost of building a home in Austin isn't in the initial cost but in your long-term investment. In the previous decades, real estate developers, expecting a population boom, have over-built around the city. The population, as you probably know, has exploded but not as expected. This has led to a slow rate of appreciation in home values and a corresponding loss in home equity. Eventually, the population will catch up, and when it does your home equity may go through the roof (Austin is consistently ranked in the top 10 cities to live), but it's not there yet.

Of course, there are still great investments out there. Austin's east side is on the verge of a much publicized revival. While real estate values have already started to increase, much like the announcement of increased projected earnings from a publicly traded company, as the revival becomes more and more of a reality, real estate values will continue to boom.

The problem here, of course, is this revival is being spear-headed by major land development companies, not individual homeowners laying out custom home building plans. Trying to find a lot suitable for custom home building near enough to the city to take advantage of this revival is all but impossible. No, the most popular and plausible place to hire an Austin home builder is out in the hill country. Here, you have enough open land to find a great lot without the same rules of the economy of mass home building. If you work on the outskirts of the city or work from home, you may not need to live within the city proper itself to avoid a long commute to work every day.

Austin Lake Houses: Home Builders for Lake Travis and Other Lakes
One specific kind of custom home builder in Austin is lake house home building companies. Both because it's less common to develop entire subdivisions and because the cost of building a lake house attracts wealthier homeowners, lake house building often falls on custom home builders. Special considerations for the terrain, soil consistency, and homeowner preferences frequently come into play when building a lake home. You might think that custom lake homes are a specialized niche, but there are many, many companies in the Austin area to choose from. Whether you're looking into building a home on Lake Travis, another Austin lake, or somewhere else in the Hill Country, you'll be able to choose the home builder that's right for you.
