Is it cheaper to build or buy a house?

In this Book of Ideas we will deal with some of the aspects concerning the greater or lesser convenience of buying or building a house. We will see what the timing of the purchase of a house is, focusing on the time to devote to research and on the preliminary bureaucratic ones.

We will then see some of the advantages and disadvantages that building a house entails, focusing particularly on the issue of mortgages. In fact, for individuals to have access to so-called construction mortgages can be complicated.

Another issue we will focus on is that of prefabricated houses, seeing what are the main advantages and risks that this solution entails.

We will therefore try to propose a small guide on aspects that it is important to consider in advance when it is necessary to decide whether to undertake the path that will lead to the purchase of a house or whether to undertake the path of construction, considering the alternative represented by the prefabricated houses.

That of the house is certainly the most important choices in everyone’s life, which involves a wide range of aspects, from personal to economic ones. And that therefore requires a collection of in-depth information, which makes it possible to decide with due knowledge of the cause and serenity.

So let’s tackle this little journey together with the advantages and pitfalls of choosing between buying and building a house .

The difficulties in accessing credit due to the economic crisis have in fact made it more difficult to buy a house. These difficulties are added to the time to devote to research, which naturally involves long timelines, appropriate to the delicacy of the choice.

First of all, you will have to decide whether to go to the market of the already built houses or to the one of those under construction, and whether or not to rely on a specialized agency. Choices that involve different costs and times.

In any case it may be important to know that, according to a recent research by Nomisma, the average time to reach the closure of a sale negotiation concerning residential properties has reached 9.5 months for new homes and 8 months for used ones . Reasonable time given the importance of the transaction, but not immediate and to be taken into due consideration.

All you need to know before building a prefabricated house!

Building a prefabricated house has many advantages: low costs, construction times, quality of materials and innovative technological solutions.

All the aspects just listed, lead more and more often to consider this type of construction, towards more classic options.

Even the modular building allows wide levels of customization to meet the needs of the end user, but there are aspects to be taken into consideration before choosing the prefabricated house of our dreams.

Naturally, before giving away to the construction of our prefabricated, it is necessary to find the most suitable ground where to lay the foundations, therefore to verify that everything is to norm.

It is absolutely essential to pay attention so that this can be buildable, free from physical, environmental and legal constraints, in addition to the constraints of the municipal regulator plan and that it is endowed with a single license.

It is also advisable to check the slope, any risks of landslides, the presence of water courses and the possibility of connection to services.

Take for example this prefabricated house proposed by the Sommerhaus Piu, the Sommerhaus Piu 65. As we can see, thanks to the choice of ecological materials and a careful design that levels the floor level, this house perfectly matches a land surrounded by greenery, minimizing any kind of environmental impact.

There are some expense items that need to be taken into account. Before the purchase and therefore the construction of the prefabricated building, it is necessary to make an expense statement that includes the following steps:

  • Possible total cost of the modular house (price per sqm., Finishes, equipment and accessories)
  • Costs related to the construction company (Excavation and land settlement)
  • Technical expenses (Design and construction supervision, geological surveys and safety plan)
  • Bureaucratic expenses (Practices, permits, stamps, urbanization charges)
  • Service connections (water, gas, electricity, telephone and sewer)

In the picture you can admire TheZeb Easy01 project by Thezeb Green Buildings & Interiors. The mission of this company consists in designing and building modular ecological and quality homes, supporting the customer during the production phases with maximum clarity on the cost items.
