Before you can build that dream home, you must first decide where to build it.
Buying a lot comes with a number of important matters that must be addressed. How do you know if you’re building in the right neighborhood? Is it convenient to work and good schools? Does the land have access to utilities? Are there any legal or environmental concerns?
That’s why it’s best to talk to an experienced contractor before buying land. A reputable general contractor will have the knowledge and relationships to help you select the best lot and navigate the purchase process with minimal headaches and without spending more than you have to.
Keep reading for a summary of the issues to ask about when purchasing a lot.
Research the neighborhood and nearby amenities. Different concerns may arise depending on whether you’re building in an urban or rural location.
Make sure your project is in compliance with all building codes and other regulations before you sign on the dotted line.
Characteristics of the lot will impact the design of your home and requirements to ensure the stability of the structure. These factors will also affect your vulnerability to flooding, high winds and other natural disasters, and may increase your construction costs and insurance rates.
All of these issues will affect where you’re allowed to build your dream home as well as your budget. Consulting with a contractor before purchasing a lot will help you make the right decision, saving you time, money and frustration in the process.
