A custom home build gives way to the imagination, with a seemingly endless variety of options and a home that is tailored uniquely for your needs, wants and tastes. If done properly a custom home can often add more value due to its uniqueness and customisation.
A custom build can involve demolishing, extending or partially developing an existing house. Alternatively one may consider demolishing and doing a New Home Build with a project home builder.
Although a custom home can be more expensive than doing a new home build, it's not always the case, because you decide how your home is constructed within the limits of your budget. It allows controlling the price of construction materials and finishes.
As the price of land increases more people are maximising on their investment by doing a custom home build. Costs will depend on multiple factors, but can range from $3,000 to $10,000 per square meter. An average custom build will cost between $300,000 and $1.5M.
