I'd rather design and build my own.
So I chose old house with the plan to do some heavy renovations.

You would rather design and build your own like I said I would....but you would buy an old house and renovate it? That's not building your own house, its just making changes to where the design suites you best.

My dream is to design and build my own, then everything would perfect, exactly how I want it. Buying new/building one through a builder can give you some customization, but it's a huge ripoff. Every option and upgrade is tremendously marked up and some actually save my boss money, but people have no idea and pay through the nose for it.

I've owned one town house and two older houses. Tip #1 buy property with as much land as possible. A townhouse is a good first choice.

New houses are nice, but do your research. Try to find out who they subcontracted the various tasks to. If the builder won't give you a list of their subcontractors, don't buy the house. Being in construction for years, I have seen some very shady developers. The good thing about an older house is that you know what problems it has.

A condo. Specifically a condo that I used to have in Napa, CA. I REALLY miss that place.
