You’ve finally decided what community you want to live in and maybe even a custom homebuilder. Now it’s on to something tricky, picking a lot to create your new household on. No worries, we are here to help you!
Have kids? Then their well-beings should be considered when choosing the perfect spot of land inside your subdivision. Lots that are in culs-de-sac offer more seclusion while still remaining neighborly with less traffic.
Typically, larger plots are on the corners. This can afford you more space to build your house on – but also remember that this could mean more lawn work. If you are a gardening enthusiast or looking to add some accessories to your backyard, then check out this location in your chosen community.
Access to the outside
If you’re looking for accessibility then you should consider a lot close to entrances or exits in the community. While there might be more traffic or noise, it will grant you a quicker commute to and from work. This might be an appealing option if you come and go more often than most for work or already have a longer drive ahead of you every morning.
You are my sunshine
How much sun exposure are you looking to get? This will also play a critical role in lot selection. Be aware of trees, direction the plot is facing, and how your home will be sitting on the lot. Does it provide enough sunlight that you’re looking for? Or maybe even too much sunlight? Are you looking for sunlight in your basement instead of a flat lot that won’t let in as much? Talk this one over with your custom homebuilder. They can help you navigate through this to find the best option here.
Another element to take note of is the prospect of privacy. If you’re looking for more seclusion in your living space, check out the back of a community or a lot that buts up to a tree line, lake, or other natural elements. This can help offer more solitude and quiet surroundings.
There are so many options when trying to figure out where you want to live and building your new home. Make sure to stop and really consider every possibility so that it can really be your dream home!
