So, you want to build your dream home from the ground up – wonderful! Here are four must-dos before you buy that perfect residential lot.

Decide On Community Style

Think about what type of community you want to build in. Near schools, bike paths, shopping, and businesses, whether you want your neighbors close or a mile away… buying your own lot gives you so many options to choose from.

Choose A Builder

Buying a lot means choosing a builder (usually). Do your research on potential builders in the area. You will want to consider if you want a completely customized home or the ability to choose from a few stock options. Some lots come with a particular builder already attached/provided.

Property Conditions

Doing a site visit is critical. You want to be sure you see the entire property and surrounding area. Certain things can go unnoticed in photos such as environmental problems.

Work With A Professional

Work with an experienced buyer’s real estate agent or broker during the purchase process. If possible, have your builder or architect involved before committing to a lot or land.
