A lot of decision-making goes into building a custom home, and the first decision you have to make is one of the most important. The lot you build on will impact everything from how much space you have for your home and the property value of your new home to how much money you’ll have left for the actual construction. Here are a few tips about how to find the perfect lot for you.
Know What You Like
Part of building a custom home is living in your dream house, including the very land you’re living on. You must know what you’re looking for before selecting a lot. Do you want something with a waterfront view, something close to the local school, or a place you can walk to work from? Are you simply looking for peace and quiet? Answering these questions will narrow down your options significantly and help you choose.
Know the Community
Most of the time, you’ll be building in an area with an established community. If you’re deciding where to build your home, you should get to know the people you’ll be living around. If you don’t get along with the neighbors, don’t enjoy the restrictions placed by the local homeowner’s association, or can’t see yourself fitting in, you should probably look for a different lot.
Consider the Finished Product
You might already know what you want your dream house to look like. It’s a good idea to imagine what the house will be like if it’s on the lot. The lot itself can impact everything from the direction the home faces to its size. This is your chance to account for size, shape, slope, direction, plant life, and even the local architectural style.
