Building Your Dream Indiana Home

The quest for finding the perfect Indiana home for sale may leave you with a desire to build your own house in Indiana. Many people dismiss the idea, thinking that it will be too difficult or too expensive to build, especially given all of the talk about supply challenges. At CENTURY 21 Scheetz, we want to help you fully realize your home building dream and show you the affordability of having a custom space to call home in Indiana.

In building your dream home in Indiana, you will get to have exactly what you want, where you want it. To begin the process, you should start by speaking to a REALTOR®.

Finding a company to carry out your vision is the next big step. You can chose to either work with an architect and construction company separately or use a home building company. Your REALTOR® can help you make this decision, weigh the benefits of each option, and recommend the best people and companies with whom to work. You can read more about CENTURY 21 Scheetz preferred builders here. 

You will also need to purchase land in your desired location.

Things to Know

Financing the building of your home is similar to financing a typical house purchase. You will often be able to either obtain a construction loan, or you will have the option to finance through your chosen company. However, construction loans can often have higher down payments than a typical mortgage, so you will need to factor that into your budgeting. It also needs to be acknowledged that building your own home is not a fast process, and can take up to a year or more. For more information on financing options, whether for a traditional home purchase or to discuss new construction financing, contact our team at Milestone Home Lending.

The benefits of building your home in Indiana will be well worth the wait. By building an Indiana home, you will get exactly what you are looking for in a home and be able to customize even the smallest details. New construction homes in Indiana also require less maintenance, as everything is brand new. If you aren't sure about building, but are interested in the benefits of a newly built home, you can view new construction homes for sale in Indiana here.
