by Ryan Wright

If you are looking to build a custom home, make sure that the features you include in your new home are features will appeal to a broader audience. By including features that other luxury and custom home buyers are interested in, you can increase the value of your home.

#1 Large Walk-In Closets

Large walk-in closets have not lost their appeal as time goes by. People still like to have big closets for all of other clothing. Many people like to collect a large variety of clothing items that they can wear for a long time, such as hats, shoes, and jewelry. When people couple-up, they often bring together really large wardrobes, which require really big closets. Big closets have been appealing for a long time, and they are not losing their appeal as a selling point.

Adding large closets not just to the master bedroom, but to the other bedrooms in your home as well is a great way to increase the appeal of your home. Since you are customizing your home, add some square footage to your home with some great custom walk-in closets.

#2 Smart Technology

Next, it is much easier to integrate smart technology into a new home than an existing home. Adding in smart technology such as smart lights, alarm systems, entertainment system, thermostats and even shades as you build the home. Once you have these systems in place, you can easily upgrade your smart technology over the years as technology advances.

Adding smart technology systems to your home now can increase its value down the road if you ever need to refinance or sell your home.

#3 Add Details & Features to The Bathroom

When you design the bathroom, be sure to add in extra details and features. For many people, the bathroom is not only a functional place, it is a place to relax as well. If you want a truly custom bathroom feel, don't just put a shower and tub combination into your master bathroom. Put in a shower and a tub. Make sure that your tub is big and relaxing; you can go with a classic claw foot tub or you can go with a more contemporary classic Jacuzzi tub. Be sure to add more than one sink to the space, and lots of counter space as well. You can even add a steam room if you want to go really custom.

The key to choosing upgrades to your custom home is to choose upgrades that appeal to you while also increasing the value of your home. Increasing the value of your home will make it easier for you to refinance and to get a home line of credit and it will help you get a better return on your investment if or when you sell your new home down the line.
