Have you been hesitant to start your next building project? Since the beginning of 2020, a mix of high prices, long lead times, and general uncertainty have caused many people to let the dust settle on their building plans and construction projects.
But if you’ve pressed pause for the last few years, here is some good news — now is the perfect time to reinvigorate the momentum behind those building plans.
Here are four reasons you should start building today:
- There is truly no perfect time.
Like most things in life, there’s never a perfect time to start chasing after what you want. Sometimes you have to jump in and get started, even with a list of unknowns. Many factors contribute to building costs and construction timelines, so instead of waiting for the stars to align, set the building process in motion sooner rather than later.
- Your time is precious.
At some point in life, clocks seem to move at warp speed. You never want to look back on your life with even an ounce of regret, so starting your building project today means you’ll have more time to enjoy the beauty of your new home, luxury barn, or event venue. It also means you’ll have more time to build treasured memories that will last a lifetime.
- You can’t predict the future.
No one could have predicted the unbelievable impact of the pandemic on the entire world. Hopefully, we never see anything like it again, but unexpected events can happen anytime. Because you can’t predict the future, the best time to start building is right now.
- Building material prices have dropped.
Perhaps the best piece of news in the construction world is that building prices have finally started dropping since their peak in 2020–2021. In fact, as of late 2022, prices are down more than 60%. Now is the right time to get started on your next building project while prices are trending down. Who knows when they’ll start increasing again, so don’t put off your building timeline any longer.
If you’re on the fence about beginning your next building project, let this be a motivator to start moving forward. You’ll have more time to enjoy the quality craftsmanship of a beautiful building with friends and family if you get started today.
