Lot Purchase Guide

The first step to building your dream home is locating and purchasing the lot or land.  There are many things to review prior to buying the building lot.  Some are obvious like location, views, and schools.  But what about the hidden items that can get you into trouble?

In this guide, we show you what a professional builder reviews prior to purchasing land to build on.  There are many hidden costs associated with a lot that can seriously impact your budget.  We show you how to identify and review these costs so there are no surprises.

The guide also shows you how to identify restrictions on a given property.  Things like square footage and building material requirements are covered.  How about easements and building setbacks...are you familiar with those?  This guide reviews some of these items that will impact the type of dream home you can build on a given property.

We also talk about the bonus items in the guide that will help you determine your costs to own a property prior to building.  If you plan on purchsing a piece of land now to build in the future, you will want to know what your annual costs will be for ownership.

 You can purchase the Lot Purchase Guide at the Armchair Builder ESTORE.
