Everyone wants to live in their dream home and at one time or another have thought about what their perfect home would look like. Not everyone though has the opportunity to build a custom home exactly to their specifications, but in Idaho that can be your reality.
If you are dreaming of selling your current home, and moving into a custom build there are few better places than Idaho. It is a quickly growing real estate market and state economy. However, the median home price there is still only $265,000, according to May data from Zillow.
In upscale Coeur d'Alene a high end custom home can still be built for as low as $300,000 and throughout the state, many custom homes can be purchased for as low as $100,000. This makes a custom designed home attainable for many in Idaho.
Keep in mind a custom home is a big undertaking. For many, it may be best to look for an existing home, or rather explore homes that can be expanded or even demoed and rebuilt to custom specifications. Demolitions can cost as little as $9,000 and range up to $20,000, so keep that cost in mind if you decide to go that route.
Contacting an expert, local real estate agent should be your first step if you want to begin exploring a custom home in Idaho. They will best be able to help you find a location that fits your needs and help you evaluate whether purchasing vacant land or a tear down is right for you.
