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.

Whether you are starting from scratch in a new home, planning to sell your existing home, or just want to change up the vibe where you currently live, one or two coats of paint are sometimes all you need to transform a room. Changing a kitchen from a sterile white to an inviting, warmer space can help bring a family together at mealtime. A basic master bathroom can turn into a cheery oasis that brightens every morning. No matter what type of atmosphere you’re trying to achieve, choosing the right paint colors is an important first step.

When choosing paint colors, think about how you want to react when you enter a space and what feelings you want it to evoke. Think about how you plan to use the space.
