Tract homes are those that can be found in estates and these are a number of homes that are pre-designed. Custom homes are those built according to their own specifications and desires. With tract homes, all one has to do is to just choose the house and close the deal on it, then one can add on or change what they wish to. Custom homes are built on any piece of land one wants and one will design and build the home from scratch.
A tract home is perfect for those that wish to move into a home as soon as possible while custom homes will take some time to build and are perfect for those not in a rush. Tract homes are built on standard land space and may not have a large yard while custom homes could be built on large pieces of land. It may be cheaper to buy a tract home but a custom home will save money, as there is no need for remodeling after moving in. The choice rests on the owner in the end.
