Are your jobs absolutely secure? Is there any possibility of needing to move within the next ten or fifteen years? I know people say their job is secure, they will never move, and so on, and two years later find themselves moving to another state.

Also, the more you decide on custom features in new construction, the less likely you are to recover the cost when selling. pauleckler already mentioned this in regard to improvements made to an existing house, but the same problem can arise when changes are made to a new house.

Also, how much do housing costs fluctuate in your area?
