Spring is traditionally a time of transition and new beginnings. New shoots emerge from the ground, animals come out of hibernation, and people finally want to be outdoors again. It’s also a time for a fresh start. There’s a reason homeowners do spring cleaning. Throwing the windows open to let clean air inside, getting rid of winter clutter, and putting away heavy jackets brings a feeling of lightness that only spring can provide.

As the days get longer and brighter, use your extra time and energy to take on a few DIY design projects. Whether you do a small decoration project or revamp an entire room, it’s a great way to take your spring cleaning to the next level and make your home more inviting.

Many people dream of being able to invest in a rental property but feel that it is a difficult financial goal to achieve. If you are able to do it, you can increase your monthly income, have more to put away in your savings, grow your net worth, and—best of all—have somebody else paying off your mortgage. One way to make this dream come true, especially if you don’t have a lot of extra cash to invest, is to build a duplex. You can live in one unit and rent out the other one, decreasing your monthly living expenses and allowing yourself to save for the future.

One of the Adair Homes floor plans that investors love is the Pines, a stylish and affordable duplex that you can either live in or rent out for even more monthly income. Each 1,200-square-foot unit has three bedrooms and one-and-a-half-baths, making it the perfect size for a small family.

6 Adair Homes that Investors Love

Whether you’re a seasoned investor or just starting to think about creating an income stream for your retirement, real estate investing is a smart long-term plan. While some investors choose to flip existing homes, there are a lot of reasons that building a new custom home is a smarter path. The main reason is predictability. When you buy an existing home, you have no idea what you’re going to find when you start the remodeling process, which can blow your budget and potentially turn your investment into a money pit. On the other hand, when you build new, you know how much it is expected to cost, when the work will be finished, and what the final product will look like, because you get to make all of the decisions.

Choosing a contractor to build your new custom home is a big decision, and it can be an intimidating one if you have never done it before. Like with any other major moment in life, it makes sense to evaluate a few different options before you choose the path ahead. Comparing multiple builders will give you the perspective you need to decide which one is the best fit for your project.

You have to consider many factors when building a custom house: what you want in a home, what responsibilities are yours during the building process, and—of course—how much you have available to spend. There’s a lot to juggle, and the process can be stressful at times, even in the smoothest of building projects. So the better your contractor is, the more enjoyable your experience will be. Working with a knowledgeable, reliable builder helps ensure that you get a quality home built on a predictable timeline and within your budget.
