Do you want to ask that How much does it cost to build a house?
We all have a dream to own a house. We want to live in our dream house. A place where we want everything to be our style and our desire!
We build a house as per our choices, whether it is big or small. We add designs, separate rooms, fixtures and furniture, landscape painting or something else that we want to see in our house!
However, to build a house is not an easy task. It is somewhat expensive.
As it is a one time in life investment, we pay extra attention to the planning.
Whenever, we estimate the average cost of the house, we need to conclude the cost of various resources.
If we are going to add anything extra for building an appealing house, then we have to pay extra for that. And all these things increase the cost of house!
You have two choices – either to buy an existing home or to build a new one.
Advantage of buying an existing home is that you may get a well settled society, good environment and also you take less time to adapt to that environment.
But, the main drawback of existing home is you are not happy either with the room or designs of the rooms, kitchen etc. and you have to adjust with the existing features of the house. Then you start to imagine that you would have made investments the other way.
If you are going to build your house, then you can give any design to it or add fixtures as per your own choice in your house. And, also the feeling of new begins in your new home only!
You are the first one to enter in your new home. Also, your new home is free from all negative energy or any kind of negative environment. How peaceful is that!
So, it’s better to build a house than to buy an existing one.
One has to estimate the cost of all the resources required to build a house and all this expenditure adds to the total cost of the house.
Before building the house, you have to pre-plan each and everything that requires attention during construction, so that all the things are under your budget. And, it will avoid extravagance also.
Build A House
If you are going to build your house, keep these things in mind for saving your money to maximum extent:
Budget of the whole process of construction:
You have to keep in mind how much are you going to spend to build a house. If you have decided to spend fix amount of money then your home will build under your budget. And, you can avoid extravagances during construction, which are the consequences of the prompt action.
For this, you can also secure construction loan to build a house.
Buy a property for the house:
Firstly, you have to look up for some good piece of land for your house. How would you come to know that it is a “good” piece of land?
You have to check all the facilities there. Facilities include proper supply of electricity, water, transport and communication. You have to make sure that you get the basic necessities of life over there.
You have to look whether the environment is good or toxic for the health.
Soil of the land needs to be checked as well, that whether it is suitable for the house or not.
If you have kids, then you also have to look for a better society.
You can also take help of agents who will help you in finding the proper land for your dream home.
And, if you are satisfied with the facilities, then you can pay and proceed further with that land piece, which is yours now.
Also, pre-plan the mode of payment. There should be proper funding for the home construction. This is a very crucial point to remember when you buy land to build a house.
Designing for the home:
Generally, people think that designing for home is not expensive, so they avoid to add this in their budget. But, let me tell you, designing is not as cheap as you think. It is quite an expensive job!
So, do add this expense in your budget. This is the first step in construction of home.
And, one’s dream home begins with the designing and sketches of the home. You can take a look at your dreams for designing and this is the beginning of your dream home construction.
You may add all the things in your new home. If you want a swimming pool or a lawn garden, then you can add all these in the designing and sketching.
Also prepare some design for water drainage system. If possible, try to build a house which is in harmony with the nature!
Designing for bedrooms, living rooms, kitchen, and bathroom should be done.
Grant Permission and inspection:
Permission has to be taken to build a house on the land. It is a time-consuming process and quite nerve-racking, so leave this to your contractors!
As they are fully aware of how to take permission and what does it takes to grant permission, they will handle things quite well.
Also, the construction has to go through various inspections till the completion of house to prevent any unwanted and unexpected damage to the house.
Insurance for construction:
Before starting the construction of house, it is good to buy construction insurance, so that your investment for house would be secure.
This insurance protects and provides security to your investment.
Now, the construction of house starts.
It includes all the steps required in building a house. It involves all electrical fittings, water plumbing, roofing works etc. that usually take place as the construction begins.
Each type of work requires an expert (plumber, electrician, carpenters etc) who will give better finish to their work.
At last, there is a final vigilance to make sure that the construction meets all the prerequisites and plans, and it will make your dream house come true.
It’s time to add beauty:
After the construction of home, it is ready for landscaping and enhancing the beauty of the home.
You can add the beauty to rooms, kitchen and bathrooms. You can add fixtures as per your choice to make your home more appealing.
Italian marble tiles or granite counter tops are the fixtures that add beauty to the kitchen. But these fixtures are expensive and add extra cost to your budget.
Decorative plants and shrubs in corridors make your home more appealing. This Decoration may also depend on the seasonal plants.
High quality electrical appliances and modern power saving appliances are more appealing and expensive. So, keep all this in mind during budget, so that the cost of these appliances will not exceed the limit of your budget.
To build a house is an expensive task and as I said it before, it is a once in a life time investment. So, one has to make sure that there will be proper budget of his home.
Cost of the house depends on your needs. If you want to build a house for single family, then it would be less expensive.
Similarly, if you want to build a house for big family, then you have to pay more for it. You can also go for home loan. And, insurance is the best option for securing your investment.
Here, we are talking about the home so that if you are going to build a house, then you must look for good contractors. They will help you a lot during the construction. Also, they are well aware of all the permission required to build a house.
If you want to add some fixtures and luxury item, then it will increase the cost to build a house.
Cost of house simply depends on the type of house you want.
If you want everything standard and luxurious, then you will have to pay more for it.
Various factors are responsible for the cost of the house. Size of rooms, number of rooms, landscape, type of fixtures, decorative walkways, electrical appliances – all these factors decide the cost of the house.
So, before you build a house, always keep in mind the budget of the house. All the extra things must be added in the total house cost. These all things together make the cost of your house. Or I can say, all these things determine the cost of the house.
Build a house and make it home!
