The current housing market has real estate costs rising dramatically in metropolitan areas. With lots for new builds at a premium, many people have started to look in the countryside for land to build their home. Living an accessible distance from the big city can provide an affordable compromise that benefits the entire family.
How are you going to find land to build on? Keep an eye out for land auctions, farmland that is being sold off in parcels, and other rural real estate listings for vacant lots. Aside from browsing online listings, attending an auction could give you the chance to cut a deal with the seller or to get a sense for land values in your area.
An Experienced Builder
After you purchase land, you should hire an experienced builder to conduct a lot inspection before you start construction. Mapping out the lot topography and key details like septic, electric, water, and other amenities will help you prepare the property for construction.
If you have your own land out in the country, it’s only natural that you want your own unique home — not a cookie-cutter design.
