How Blu Compares to Custom Built & Existing Homes
There is typically a 15-20% premium for new homes vs. existing homes, according to Trulia; furthermore, green homes have a 9% premium vs. typical homes, according to a study by UC Berkeley. While there have been limited sales of Blu homes, our resale data show that Blu homes appreciate even more, with resale or market value upon completion, often at 25%+ above the cost to build.
More Accurate Estimates
Our third-generation Blu home products are now 80%+ complete in the factory. Depending on your site complexity and design choices, the scope of site work (foundation, excavation, etc.) can also be minimized. Under these conditions, with Blu’s fixed factory prices, we can provide estimates that are more accurate, at a much earlier point in the process, than comparable custom home builders. We believe this is a major benefit, especially in inflationary conditions like California’s building market over the last decades, where custom builders with largely changing labor & materials costs.
Blu's luxury prefab homes typically take half the time of custom homes. For teardowns, we are even more advantaged vs. custom building, as the existing home can be comfortably inhabited up until permits are attained and your Blu home is already complete in the factory; at that point, the Blu home can be placed and completed on a new foundation, within weeks. This compares to a 2+ year process for teardown and stick rebuilds, typical in California, after permits are attained.
Blu builds in a climate controlled, well-equipped, 365-day a year staffed factory where we recycle all waste and build with deeply experienced craftsmen and women. We use state-of-the-art equipment to cut our components and materials that have been vetted by our leading architects, customers, and factory building team over three generations of world-class, award-winning products. Our products are simply better quality. They feel heavy, comfortable, and healthy because of how they’re built - which is impossible to replicate on a site, in the rain, snow, and weather conditions that makes typical custom home building subject to mold, toxins, misalignment, and other challenges.
