New Home Building – Finding Vacant Land

Postby » Sun Feb 06, 2011 12:48 am

One of the most important decisions you will make when you build a new house is choosing where you will build it.New Home Building New Home Building – Finding Vacant Land If the lot isn’t already in your possession, you’ll have to go hunting for the right building lot. It’s not as simple, however, as just finding something that looks good; there are many things to think about.

Vacant land – is it a good place to build a new house?

Here’s a list of questions to ask about potential building lots before you make an offer:

* What’s the zoning? Be sure that the land is zoned appropriately for residential building.

* Can you afford it? What’s your budget for land? You may be able to save money in initial cost, and possibly in taxes, by buying from an individual rather than a developer. Remember that country lots are usually cheaper, but putting in a well and septic system will be expensive and may offset the savings. Don’t forget to consider property taxes in the area.

* Is the location right? Think about where you want to live. Should it be in a residential area where neighbors are close or a more rural setting with land around and more privacy? What’s the commute like to work, school, shopping areas, relatives etc.
