A new home build or remodel can be a very exciting time, but it can also be a stressful one.  Having the right teams in place, however, like a reputable custom home architecture firm, can decrease your stress level while increasing the usability and value of your home.

Architects Add Value

The widely accepted opinion of the real estate industry is that architect-designed homes tend to be valued at as much of 50% more than comparable homes that utilize catalog plans or are builder-designed.  With architect fees making up a much smaller percentage of your home’s value, the ROI can be quite a rewarding surprise.

Not to mention the obvious benefits of having a home that is custom tailored to meet the needs of your family, lifestyle and landscape.  One of the most influential aspects of compatibility between a homeowner and a home architect is appreciation for a particular style of home.  At ACM Design Architects we have an inclusive portfolio of homes that can help homeowners to identify which projects align most with their particular tastes.

Architects Increase Efficiency

Homes built from stock plans are notorious for their inclusion of unwanted or unusable space.  A custom home architect can expertly plan for kitchen storage, closet space, and even energy efficiency of the layout, tailored to your furniture, design tastes and use.  This in turn can increase the efficiency of the space, and lower the risk of unforeseen additional costs that would be required to make use of the space like storage systems, or furniture items to replace those that do not work with the space.

Ultimately, selecting an architecture firm to design your home may cost a bit more up front, but with the reduction of inefficiencies and increase in features that add comfort and value, your ROI will be far greater, and your home will be more attractive to buyers if you ever decide to sell.
