Build Your Own House:  Choosing a Lot or Land

It's a great time to purchase the lot for your dream home.  Whether you want to build now or sometime in the future, the supply of land is good and prices couldn't be better.

This video reviews all of the important considerations for the owner-builder when choosing a place to build a new home. We discuss in detail the 20% rule and important items to review prior to purchase including zoning of the property and adjacent property, utilities, soil conditions, topography, setback requirements, and dirt balance. We also discuss the visit to the local building department and what questions to ask.
