What is a “tear-down” in Real Estate and is it a good option for me?

tear down

Everyone has heard that the three most important things in real estate are location, location, location. Because, let’s face it, your dream home on the wrong piece of land will NEVER feel like a dream home. However, you can always build your dream home on your current property with the help of the number one custom homebuilder in Central Texas, Giddens Homes, and our customizable build on your lot Central Texas floor plans. So, what is a teardown, and is it a good option?  To help provide a better understanding of what this entails, let’s take a look at two of our most recent home buyers and why each chose to replace an existing home with a new home.

Our first family has been in their home for almost 20 years. They absolutely love their huge yard with mature trees, swimming pool, guest house, etc., but the house is just too small for their growing family and needs a complete overhaul. They also realized that the land was much more valuable than their current home itself. Through the Giddens Homes Build on Your Lot Central Texas program, we are tearing down and removing the existing home (while keeping the pool and guest house) and replacing it with the large single-story floorplan they’ve always wanted. Their new custom home will include all the modern design elements they’ve dreamed of and at a price not too far from the cost of a total renovation and an addition to the old house would have been.

Our second family had some very specific needs for their dream lot and needed their new home to be close to amenities and work. Every available lot they could find was too far away to meet their needed proximity. They found their dream property, but it had a 40+ year old home on it that was too small and had never been renovated. Working with Giddens Homes Build on Your Lot program, we will replace the aging home with a customized two-story home that fits their lifestyle to a tee, plus their new home is in the heart of everything they desired most.
