What are the advantages of building a custom home?

We’ve put together a list of some of the benefits of building a custom home.

Tailored to your needs

From the first point of contact, our custom home builders will listen carefully to your ideas and take the time to understand your expectations and lifestyle. You can have the home you want built exactly how you want it. 


As every block of land has its own unique characteristics, layout, and location, our custom home builder will collaborate with you, the architect and engineers to create a design that maximises your land’s potential and aesthetic. This leads to stunning, eye-catching homes that bring life and character to the area. 


It’s in the name – a custom-built home means you can customise every single aspect of your dream property.


A good project manager will ensure a higher level of quality control and will monitor all projects and make sure everything is well maintained. They should be providing you with regular progress updates and on-site meetings – giving you peace of mind knowing your home is in great hands. 

Energy efficiency

When building your home, we can work together to ensure that it is well insulated and that all the appliances and technology are modern and as energy-efficient as possible. 

Money saver

The initial cost of investing in a custom home may be higher, but in the long run you’re going to save money as all the important stuff will already be exactly as you like it and all the internals (plumbing, electricity etc.) will be up to date which should reduce any unforeseen problems. 


Many of our clients talk about the ease of the entire process, the rapport you develop with your builder and the flexibility to build a home that you’ll love.


As each project is managed individually, any concerns can be dealt with quickly avoiding unnecessary delay. As prestige home builders on the Gold Coast, our team at CMR plans every aspect of your build right down to the last lightbulb, ensuring your dream home is completed on time and on budget.

CMR Constructions offers all of this and more to customers looking to build their dream Gold Coast custom home. Give us a call for a consultation and see what we have to offer you!

Why build a custom home?

The biggest reason why building a custom home can be beneficial is it can be exclusively tailored to your needs and lifestyle, whatever they may be. There are a few different options when looking for a new home. 

First, we have the tried and true method of simply moving into an existing home. This way you can choose your neighbourhood and budget and find a home that suits you. It saves a lot of time and energy as the home is usually mostly ready to go, however, there may be some need for renovations etc., and there is little flexibility in the design.

The next option is a project home, which is a home built to a pre-determined design in large volumes. Compared to the standard method of buying an already existing house, project homes offer some more flexibility as they can still be placed on a block of land of your choosing. They are relatively inexpensive and convenient, but the downside is that there is little room for changes to the design when compared to the next option, a custom-built home.

A custom-built home allows you to design all aspects of your home, from top to bottom. CMR Constructions are custom home builders on the Gold Coast who understand that building a new home is one of the biggest investments most people will make in their lifetime, and so we work with you every step of the way to guarantee you get the home you want, your way.

With that being said, let’s take a closer look at the difference between a project home and a custom home, and some of their advantages and disadvantages.
