What is a custom home? Main Idaho Real Estate Insights

Sometimes it is defined by the quality or upgrade of amenities. The truest form of a custom homes is that it was designed by the owner of the home or for the owner of the home.

If a builder drafts, designs and builds a home to sell, it is technically not a custom home. This is called a 'spec' home. Additionally, when the original owner of a custom home sells their home, it technically is not a 'custom' home any more. Once the original owner moves out it is a 're-sale.' Remember, a custom home is built for a specific family or person.

If you want a custom home it must be designed for you and built for you, This word is over used by many. If you search the MLS for "Custom" Homes you will see many listings. This could in fact mean that every home is a custom home. Learn more about Idaho Custom Home Builders.
