If you already own your lot, we will assist you deciding on the best floor plan to complement the natural lay of the land. Things to think about when purchasing a lot include:

1. Location. Consider convenience to schools, shopping & freeway access.

Rual or Subdivision, Country Or City

2. Investigate property tax base in the area and area growth. The growth of a given area will determine how fast the taxes might go up over time.
3. Resale is often a consideration. It is usually best if you build in an area that has a good history of resale.
4. A community setting will generally have sewer, water & sometimes sidewalks.
5. If a rural setting is more your style, you will need to consider the cost of a well water system and the cost of a septic system of some kind. Mound-type systems are the most common septic systems. For more information on mound systems, please feel free to contact us.
6. Investigate for any possible hidden cost involved with your lot location before purchase if possible.
7. Carefully consider how you and your family will use the land and space you decide on.
8. Call to schedule a free site review before or after your purchase.
