Benefits of Building a Custom Home in Northern Virginia
When choosing between purchasing an existing house and building a new one from the ground up, you can expect many benefits from the custom build option:
- Energy efficiency: New homes are built to a higher efficiency standard than those constructed decades ago. High-performance windows, insulation and appliances keep your energy bills down from day one. If you buy an older home, you may need to upgrade these elements to meet your expectations. Because of our dedication to sustainability and efficient building practices, our custom homes use less energy than older homes half their size. Our homes always meet or exceed ENERGY STAR qualifications because we use energy-efficient building materials and products in all of our homes. This adds value and efficiency to your home. Structurally sound, climate-adapted and energy-efficient home designs reduce your carbon footprint and exposure to household air pollution, excessive heat, cold, and dampness.
- Location, location, location: One of the most important aspects of buying a home is finding the right location. Sekas Homes has active on your lot programs with single-family homes at various stages of construction. You can also request to have your custom home built on your own lot or a homesite we’ve purchased.
- Craft a design that works for you: House hunting can be a heartbreaking process because you’re forced to make compromises. A custom home can have every unique feature you want, from a two-story patio to a media room to a dog washing station in the garage. The sky’s the limit!
