When you build a custom home, the sky’s the limit: You have countless options to choose from, and innumerable ways to attain the house of your dreams. One of the most important decisions you’ll make in the entire process is the where. In what geographic area are you going to build your custom home?
At SeBern Custom Homes, we’re partial to the greater Chicagoland area, and we’re always happy to explain why. Here are just a few of our top reasons why you should build your custom home here in our neck of the woods.
Why Build in Chicagoland?
Chicagoland is an epicenter of sports and culture.
For one thing, Chicago has a rich and robust cultural lineage. Start with sports. Whether you grew up with the Bulls dynasty or rooted for the Cubs in their recent World Series victory, you know that there are some great teams here—teams with lots of fans and plenty of heart.
But that’s just one aspect of what we’re talking about here. Chicagoland is also a hub for music and for stand-up comedy; performers as diverse as Tina Fey, Stephen Colbert, Chance the Rapper, Bill Murray, and Common honed their chops here in the Windy City. There are always shows happening, and never a loss for things to do.
And then there are the museums—recognized as some of the finest art museums in the country. In particular, the Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art is the home to some of the most vibrant and varied works of art you’ll see anywhere.
When you build in Chicago or Chicagoland, you enter into a world that’s worthy of endless exploration.
Chicago is beautiful.
Plain and simple. Yes, Manhattan is impressive, and there are scenic vistas on the California coast—but for gorgeous city skylines, it’s hard to top Chicago. Buildings like Tribune Tower serve as local landmarks, but in truth, there are countless streets and neighborhoods you can explore, always being wowed by the city’s loveliness.
Life in the Chicago area is affordable.
You may have heard all about the sky-high cost of living out on the California coast. And maybe you’ve also read the reports of all the young professionals and families that are flocking to the Midwest, with Chicago serving as their hub.
There’s a simple reason for that: In Chicago or Chicagoland, you can still get real estate for a reasonable price and enjoy a life of luxury for much less than what you’d pay in, say, New York.
Chicago is full of up-and-coming neighborhoods.
As you seek to make the best possible real estate investment decision, you naturally want to think about communities that are on the rise—and Chicagoland is full of them.
No matter which side of the city you choose, you can find areas that are only now coming into their own, growing in value and prestige with each passing day.
Now’s the time to buy into these areas—and if you’re not sure which neighborhoods hold the most promise, we’re happy to offer recommendations.
Incidentally, it’s also worth noting that some of the top neighborhoods in the area are beyond the heart of the city—so if you’re looking for a quieter, more suburban life for your custom home, Chicagoland can accommodate you.
A custom home allows you to have the lifestyle you always wanted.
No matter which part of Chicagoland you choose, what’s most exciting is choosing the home layout of your dreams. That’s the part we love working on alongside our clients.
When it comes to designing a custom home, there’s little restriction on what you can do. You’re in the driver’s seat with regard to size, floorplan, traffic flow, amenities, materials, colors… the list goes on and on.
Looking for the kind of day-to-day living you’ve always wanted for your family? With a custom home, built in Chicagoland by SeBern Custom Homes, you can achieve it.
