It Suits You

This is the most common reason UrbanLUX Builders hears from those who come to us wanting a custom home. As individuals, we all have different tastes and different ways of doing things. We also have ideas of where we want things in our home and what is most convenient for us. For example, you may love having a kitchen island with a sink; others may not. You may want a jetted bath tub; whereas, others may simply want a stand-up shower. Others dream of a huge backyard for their kids and dogs to romp in; some don’t want a large yard that they have to take care of.

With custom home builders in San Antonio, everything is built according to your specifications and how you like it. Thus, when your custom home is built, it fits you like a glove, with everything being extremely comfortable.


Another common reason UrbanLUX Builders in San Antonio sees for those who want to build a custom home is location. Many custom home builders want to get away from it all, so they look for out of the way locations to build. One popular location to build a custom home is in the mountains. The mountains are a beautiful place to spend your free time. You are surrounded by forest, you have fresh, clean air to breathe, and the sunrises and sunsets can’t be beat. Many people want to build a home on a body of water, such as a lake or the ocean for the exact same reasons — to be surrounded by beauty. After all, with only one life to live, you want to enjoy it.

One of our communities in San Antonio that offers amazing, breath-taking view is The Canyons at Scenic Loop. Here, you are surrounded by the beautiful Texas Hill Country and are still only minutes from the amenities of San Antonio. People crave peace, quiet, and luxury all in one, which is one of the best things about luxury home building.

We mentioned out-of-the-way places to build a home, but another place people build custom homes is in the city. San Antonio is a perfect example. People move here for the great lifestyle, standard of living, and warm climate. They love the history, the culture, and the people here. Moreover, they may have family in the area as well that that draws them here.

When you partner with a luxury home builder, such as UrbanLUX Builders, you can build on a mountain top, on the side of a hill, or in a neighborhood in the city close to good schools and community. It’s your dream, and we do our best to make to make it come true.

Lower Maintenance Costs

Many people believe that building a custom home in San Antonio is too expensive. They think it’s much cheaper to buy an existing home and then remodel it to their specifications.  This thinking can be fundamentally flawed.

When you invest now in a custom home that you will enjoy for the foreseeable future, you will be saving money in the long run. One way that custom homes in San Antonio are cheaper than existing homes is the fact that in new homes everything is new. This means that you won’t have much maintenance costs in the first ten years of home ownership. This is not only convenient (after all, who wants to deal with a busted hot water heater?), but it can save you thousands of dollars in maintenance and repair costs. And if something does break, it’s covered under a warranty of some sort, so there’s no money out of your pocket. 

Furthermore, there will be no home improvement costs that can add up quickly when you consider whole kitchen remodels because your home is exactly how you want it when you buy it. If you’ve ever remodeled before, you understand not only the time involved, but the expense involved in a remodel. There is definitely something to be said for having a brand new luxury custom home to live in.


Everyone has their own reasons for choosing to build a custom home, from the location and convenience to the lower maintenance costs associated with a new home build. UrbanLUX Builders understands the desire to have a perfect home, which is why we are in the home building business. We focus on customer experience, so the moment you contact us to the moment you close on a house and beyond, we’re here to make sure your custom home build goes smoothly, efficiently, and is exactly how you like it.
