Add at least 10% More Value to your New Home with this Simple Prescription for Success

What if you were told that you could have a home with 10% greater value by focusing on capturing a mountain view that didn’t seem so great in your eyes? Would you ignore it? What if that value could have been created without costing you a nickel… and without reducing the objectives you looking to achieve in your home?

It is ludicrous how much value is lost, and money is wasted by not taking advantage of your land’s best attributes. For example, shielding the lot’s troubling influences, like road noise. This mismanagement should be a crime. The problem is custom home buyers are not educated by “the professionals” and unbeknownst to them the value evaporates because of this colossal mistake.

To start, let me ask you a simple question based on an unusual premise. Let’s say you are not mesmerized by mountain views. For that matter, city lights at night aren’t your cup of tea either.

Now, imagine you just purchased a residential lot; remember, you don’t care about mountain or city views. Would you actually build a home that completely ignored both?

The reason I ask this question is because many professionals involved ignore the unique, and many fantastic characteristics of the building site. Hence, opportunities missed.

I must admit, I’ve never been asked in my 30 years of practice as an architect to shun a mountain or city view. Experience has taught me to believe that people become so penny-wise and pound-foolish or they are so deep in the weeds thinking about the floor plan itself they miss remarkable opportunities.

This should have your attention.

The $120,000 Mistake

Seriously though, this is a big problem. So much value and money is lost on home after home. Let’s illustrate this problem with money instead of percentages. So you just completed your home and it’s worth $1,000,000. You move in and you’re informed that it would have been worth $1,120,000 with the simple change that wouldn’t have created any additional cost? Wouldn’t you be really angry? I know, with absolute certainty, that I would be. Burning $120,000 for no reason seems really stupid, doesn’t it? But, it happens every day. What is mind boggling, is the solution is so simple.

Why settle for nice when it does not have to cost a nickel more to be fantastic, or even better mesmerizing. It is simple, do not let your professionals overlook or get the siting of your home wrong! Imagine, every time you are in your great room or bedroom, all you have to do is turn your head, and a striking view is in sight. Not to mention, your home will be unforgettable to your family and friends.

Trust me, 30 years designing homes showcasing breathtaking views never gets old for my clients. The icing on the cake is what this does to the value of your home. It will be worth more money and resell easier, than a home with the same features but without maximizing views and the land’s characters.

Your Prescription to Success

Here’s proof how crazy awesome this works. The following case study called, A tale of 2 Homes shows that you don’t even need a big special lot to capture views. It illustrates the premise that capturing views increases the value of your home. You will understand what some “professionals” believe is inconceivable – a home that cost less to build, is sold for more money, in less time than its neighbor, despite looking the same from the stre

I can bet based on 30 years of designing, engineering and working with builders, who have sold over $2,300,000,000 ($2.3 billion) of my work, that the homes highlighted in the case study are of considerable lower value and cost than the home you plan on building. This is the point, using the same principles in the case study will net you more home that capitalizes on the land’s innate characteristics for less money and is more valuable when completed. I realize that is mind boggling, but it is true. Click Here to see more.
