In the UK we have a housing shortage – in some parts of the country, the lack of housing, or at least affordable housing is much more apparent – take London for example. Many people have been priced out of areas that were once priced in a way that the average working person could afford to live there but now need to earn a high wage to purchase a property there – one great example of this is Peckham.
The Government are aware of this housing problem in the country, and as well as a pledge to build new affordable housing for people, many people are starting to explore a different avenue – custom build homes.
Custom build homes are a bit of a mix of self-build homes and a new pre-built home. So, for people looking for a home that is tailored and built to suit their needs, but without some of the hassle and stress that can come from having their own self-build project they are the ideal solution.
There are many companies that can help you, such as custom build homes Birmingham by Ifurb if this is the route that you choose to go down when purchasing a new home. It is a scheme that gaining in popularity quickly, so have a look around and do some research. If you know anyone who has done the same, maybe it would be worth speaking to them to see if you think it is a choice that would be suitable for you and your family.
