Why Build Now

Published on April 19, 2022

Are you on the fence about building a new home in Southwest Florida? Here are a few factors to keep in mind.

  • Low Existing Home Inventory – If you haven’t found the home you want, then it’s likely it won’t come on the market anytime soon.  Low inventory and strong buyer demand mean few options and fierce competition for existing homes.
  • Customize it – One of the benefits of building a new home is that you can customize it to your specific needs.  By building new you get everything you want in a home.
  • Energy efficiency – New homes are more energy-efficient than their older counterparts.  Better insulating material and new windows help keep homes cool in the summer heat and are easier on energy bills. 
  • Low-interest rates – Mortgage rates are still sitting at historically low levels, which can help offset the cost of building.  Waiting too long could result in a higher interest rate and higher building costs.

The demand for new housing comes with concerns about the industry’s ability to keep up with the increasing demand for materials and labor.  As a custom home builder, Aubuchon Homes works closely with clients to communicate any anticipated delays. 

Aubuchon Homes also uses a cutting-edge construction management website and app. It includes a client portal to encourage good communication between everyone involved with each home.
