Are you planning to move to a new house and afraid to make a bad decision? Both buying and building a house is an important and exciting step forward, but they still can drive you crazy with all the paperwork to deal with and money to spend. So, how to choose the better option for your budget and needs? 

New home construction in Las Vegas area

Nevada has a very active real estate market with lots of homes for sale. Houses get sold fast and new ones keep coming onto the market, so there’s no lack of real estate here. Due to many new construction projects, the cities of Las Vegas, North Las Vegas and Henderson are constantly attracting so many homeowners and homebuyers. Their neighborhoods including Summerlin, Green Valley Ranch, Lake Las Vegas, Seven Hills, Southern Highlands, Royal Highlands, Anthem, The Fountains, etc. are the most desired locations for building new homes. If you want to buy a house, Titon Construction Company will provide you with new construction home listings, so that you could learn more about homes for sale in Nevada and choose the most suitable one for you. 

Is it cheaper to buy or build a new home?

Both buying and building a new home lay a huge responsibility on you. However, we can say for sure that the quicker process is definitely buying a property, as you can move in as soon as you've paid for it. On the other hand, building a property gives you much more freedom and control. You get to choose every detail and feature of your future home from the location to the number and size of rooms to finishing touches inside and outside. But be ready to wait till you could finally live in your newly-built home. To facilitate the construction process and make it less stressful, it’s really worth hiring a professional new custom home builder who will deal with all permits you need and do a quality job with the funding you provide.

When it comes to prices, building new homes in Las Vegas is usually more expensive than buying, especially if you want to implement every single unique detail and feature. However, the price mostly depends on the location. That’s why building a home could often end up being cheaper.

Titon General Contractor can estimate your construction project, so that you’ll know approximately how much your custom home will cost you. Our new construction home listings will help you compare similar houses for sale in different communities of Las Vegas, Henderson or North Las Vegas. This is a good strategy for you to figure out what will be cost-effective for you: buying or building a new home.

What is the most expensive part of building a house?
