Rome wasn’t built in a day!
Building a house will take time. From finding a plot, seeking building permission, to designing your home, these steps alone can take anywhere between 3-8 months if EVERYTHING goes to plan. Hit some roadblocks though, and you can expect this timeframe to increase.
On the other hand, buying a house will also usually take many months as everyone in the chain rushes to sell their house to buy their new one. All this waiting around is comparable to the grueling task of watching paint dry. Then one day, just when you thought the paint was dry, low and behold, you receive a call saying that your sale has fallen through! Some people go through this process several times only to call it quits and stay where they are!
