Buyers of new homes in Fredericksburg TX often ask about the difference between custom homes and semi-custom homes.  Many of our subdivisions are populated with semi-custom homes but the rolling hills of Texas Hill Country are speckled with a variety of custom home designs.  Whether buyers choose to build custom homes or semi-custom Fredericksburg homes usually comes down to time and money.

Custom Homes

Buyers choosing lots for Fredericksburg custom homes normally want original, unique designs.  They want to make decisions about many if not all aspects of the home's interior and exterior as well as its positioning on the home sites or land.  The sky is the limit and folks building their dream homes like to be involved in choosing everything from the ground up, exterior to interior, as well as energy efficient systems, outdoor living, swimming pools or barns, etc.  

The process usually takes longer but may be more fulfilling.  The home becomes a work of art and conversation piece.  There is a history to the selection of each light fixture or recycled mantelpiece.  

See information about builders such as Tony Roberts and pictures of custom homes on our Sage Premium Texas Real Estate website.


Semi-customhomes in Fredericksburg are usually much faster and less expensive.  Many buyers prefer pre-designed homes.  The ability to see similar existing homes or plans helps them to imagine the finish product.  And they do not have to purchase blueprints.  

These buyers select from the floor plans and styles offered by the builder.  Floor plans and building materials can usually be changed somewhat to accommodate personal uses.  These buyers may also select from a list of features, colors and materials, and products.  However, the homebuilder has usually narrowed down the options.  

The semi-custom home is a great choice for home buyers who are satisfied with midrange quality and functionality.  Semi-custom homebuilders strive to stay within budgets.  Semi-custom builders usually rule out high-end home products.  As the builder may purchase a number of quality products in bulk, the semi-custom home normally costs less.  

The semi-custom home is not a good choice if the homebuyers want to make too many modifications to the homes.  These modifications drive up the price.  In addition, this homebuyer may not be satisfied with the end result.
