Three Ways to Make Your Custom Luxury Home Into an Investment

Luxury custom home designs

There are a number of benefits of having a hand in designing your own luxury home. Between getting the perfect home for you and your family’s needs and saving money, luxury custom homes can actually be designed with a sale in mind. Just because you’re designing a custom home doesn’t mean you’re necessarily going to live in it forever, and you might as well make it an investment. If you think you’d eventually like to sell your custom home for any reason, or just want to make it even more valuable, here are a few things you should add to the luxury house plans.

1. A Smart Home System
One thing you should consider adding to your luxury home plans is a smart home system. These generally include a network of security and alarm devices in the home. Since safety and security are big issues when it comes to the home, it’s important to set an easy-to-use system in place. These types of systems usually connect smart phones with things like smoke alarms and security cameras.

2. Energy Efficiency
Making a home energy efficient is also another attractive quality for a resale. First of all, it will save you money in the time you’re living in the home — ENERGY STAR certified homes can save you about 20% on annual utility bills, which is a huge selling point. Adding spray foam insulation to make the home more efficient can actually save about 50% on insulation costs too.

3. A Luxury Outdoor Space
Another strong selling point for a home and something you can enjoy in the meantime is adding an outdoor space to your luxury house plans. Work with your custom home builders on this one because the possibilities here are pretty much endless. Infinity pools are very popular, but you could also add an outdoor cooking area, a bar, or hot tub.
