What's Happening

Buying a home can be incredibly exciting, and also, well, a bit overwhelming. With so many factors to consider—from location and size to price and condition—it can be a daunting task to find a home that ticks every box without breaking your budget. On top of that, you’d really love to find the perfect design and layout to fit your unique style. Want our humble opinion? Don’t settle for a home that’s old, needs repair, and only has some of those features on your must-haves list. Buy the house you actually want! 

Choosing a new custom-built home can be the best way to get everything you’re looking for without having to settle or be surprised by unexpected costs. So, say “Thanks, but no thanks” to bidding wars, and pros and cons lists, and say “Yes, please” to picking out the special details on your new home at Daybreak. Here are seven of our top reasons for buying a new custom home.


At Daybreak, it’s personal. Here, you can pick out just about every aspect of the design, from the layout of the rooms to the finishes on the walls. That means that you can create a home that reflects your personality and suits your lifestyle perfectly. Instead of going back and forth on what you’re willing to sacrifice, or how to come up with the extra money if the house is over budget, opt to design and build your dream home from the ground up.

Say goodbye to buyer’s remorse. When buying an existing home, there is always the risk of hidden damage that may cause you to incur extra costs. You may find that the home needs extensive repairs or renovations that you weren’t aware of before purchasing. Not at Daybreak! You can rest easy knowing that your home was built using the latest technology, energy-efficient features, and high-quality materials and workmanship.

Low Maintenance

We love a good DIY…just not when it comes to home repairs. And when it comes to professionals, hiring help to fix a fixer-upper can be a big drain on the ol’ piggy bank. So why sink your savings into a place you know will need extensive work? A new custom home is designed to be low maintenance, with everything from the plumbing to the electrical systems in top condition. This means that you can spend more time enjoying your new digs instead of worrying about that noise you can’t pinpoint or the funky smell in the basement.

Energy Efficiency

When we say we make moves with eyes toward the future, we mean it! Daybreak homes are built with energy efficiency in mind, which means that you can save money on your utility bills. Features such as high-efficiency windows, insulation, and heating and cooling systems can help to reduce your energy consumption and lower your carbon footprint.


It’s been said before and we’ll say it again: it’s all about location, location, location. When you build a new custom home, you have the freedom to choose the location that best suits your needs. So what are you looking for? A spacious abode near miles of trails? A house near the lightrail to catch your daily ride to work? Whether you’re a commuter wanting to live a short walk from a TRAX station or a family looking to be a stone’s throw from an accredited school for the kiddos, Daybreak has you covered.

Yes, it’s a place to live, but it’s also part of your financial portfolio, so let’s ensure a return on that investment! A new custom home is likely to have a higher resale value than an older home, especially when you include high-quality features and finishes. In addition, buying a new custom home can be a great way to save money in the long run. Remember those low maintenance costs and high efficiency fixtures we talked about? Those savings add up. Plus, there’s no need to worry about mold or pests that the previous owner forgot to mention.

Health and Safety

About those mold and pest problems we were just talking about—they aren’t just a wallet-concern, but rather a very serious health risk that no one should have to live with… especially after making such a big purchase. Because new custom homes are built to the latest safety standards, you can enjoy peace of mind knowing that your home is safe and secure.

Final Words

When you really think about it, a house is much more than just a house—it’s an investment in your life and future that should bring you joy each and every day. Building a new custom home can be the best way to get everything you’re looking for without having regrets. At Daybreak, our homes are a reflection of the families living in them.
