How does it work? Purchasing a lot to build a new construction home on

You’ve decided you want to build your dream home. Now, you need to hunt down and snatch up that perfect piece of paradise to call home. Here’s how to go about finding just the right spot:⁣

Consider the general layout of the home you want to build. Sprawling ranch? Front-porch farmhouse? Two-story bungalow? The lot you choose should complement the home you envision.⁣
Save time by narrowing down where you want to live. Then research available lots in those areas.⁣
Link arms with an agent who knows local builders and can help assess a lot’s potential. You want to be well-acquainted with a lot’s slope, drainage, and utilities.⁣
Check with the local zoning office about the land you’re interested in purchasing. Pay attention to surrounding land as well and try to weigh what future zoning and construction will happen in the area. Your agent can help!⁣
If you’re looking to buy in an established neighborhood, research minimum square footage or building materials requirements. Ask about HOA fees or restrictions that could limit your number of pets, vehicles, or home additions down the road.⁣
Meet with reputable lenders familiar with construction loans to learn your financing options.⁣
Work with an agent to write and negotiate an offer.⁣
Attend your closing and break ground!⁣

If you’re leaning towards new construction, but haven’t found the right lot, I’d love to help. DM my email and let me know what you’re looking for – zip code, school district, acreage, etc. As I chat with my network of agents and hear about lots, I’ll reach out – you’ll be one of the first to know! I can also set you up to receive email alerts the second a listing hits the MLS that fits your wish list. Can’t wait to hear from you!⁣
