A custom home allows the freedom to design a floorplan to your family, work, and lifestyle needs. For nearly a decade, Noffke Homes has been designing and building our client’s forever homes. Check out our top seven reasons to build versus buy an existing home.

Functional Design

Finding precisely what you want in an existing home can be daunting. A custom home allows you to design a living space that fits your current lifestyle, while also considering your future needs. If you’re planning to grow your family, move in a parent, design a pet suite for a furry family member, or crave a dedicated craft room, a custom build allows you to get everything you want, the way you want it. At the core of Noffke Homes’ values is building beautiful quality homes that will stand the test of time. We pride ourselves on functional, cutting-edge design with beautiful details that will grow with your family’s ever-changing needs.

Express Yourself

A custom home is an expression of the owner’s personality. From the doorknobs, light fixtures, and kitchen appliances, you have the opportunity to hand-select the finer details. At Noffke Homes, we collaborate with the industry’s most sought-after artists. Our in-house designers will partner with you to execute your vision and a style you will love for years to come.

Go Green

A custom home will include energy-efficient features, such as appliances, lighting, plumbing fixtures, heating and cooling systems, and landscaping. Take your green practices a step further by choosing sustainable building products such as bamboo flooring, reclaimed wood, or solar panels.

Integrate Technology

Adding smart home technology upgrades your home with the most modern, convenient elements while allowing a level of personalization depending on your family’s needs. Security systems, home automation systems, and smart thermostats are simple and effective ways to build a safer, smarter home. Even if you don’t pack your home with gadgets from the start, Noffke Homes are tech-ready. From high-speed internet wiring, solar panel prewire, to an electric car charging station, your home will be ready when you are.

Location. Location. Location.

Finding the right home in the right location can nearly be impossible. Build where you want to be in a custom home. The right place means sending your children to the most desired school district, moving closer to family and friends, or more accessible to local conveniences. Noffke Real Estate can take over the exhausting task of finding the perfect location and selling your existing home promptly, should you need it. Our knowledgeable team of real estate experts is committed to a great home buying and selling experience.


When you buy an existing home, you could be paying for features and unnecessary space you may not want or need. When you build custom, you have the freedom to choose where you invest your dollars. From the start, the schedule and budget are created with your goals and timeline in mind. Our standard features are what many builders charge an expensive upgrade fee. Discover the elegant features exclusive to Noffke Homes at no additional cost to you.

Lower Maintenance Costs

Everything is new in a custom home. Many of the building materials, appliances, fixtures and even the structure of the home come with a warranty. Live without the headaches of a leaky roof, failing heating and cooling system, or broken faucet. As a Noffke homeowner, you receive a 10-year warranty, ensuring you’re as satisfied with your home years from now as the day you moved in.

Building a home can be exciting and overwhelming. Our in-house team of experts will assist you through each step of the process. The newly opened showroom allows clients to explore design ideas, access our versatile services, and connect with a knowledgeable team of experts in one convenient location. We invite you to experience the Noffke Homes difference. For more information, visit NoffkeHomes.com or call (253) 299-4076.
