Production vs Custom Builders - What's The Difference?
This short Team NuVision video explains these broad categories.
- Production: build many homes from a limited set of home plans with finite options for customization.
- Custom: build one-of-a-kind homes or highly customized plans usually with direct client involvement.
Both production and custom homes can range from simple to complex, and inexpensive to high-end. And the construction quality - which is a big factor in long-term price ownership costs, and enjoyment - can vary from “passes inspection” to superb, for either production OR custom homes. Production building has become more customizable and production builders have economies of scale on their side; if you buy a pre-construction home in their development your design choices or square footage may be as good or even better than a custom builder could provide for the same price. Evaluate both options in person before making a long-term decision.
