After working closely with our customers for years, we've heard every question in the book about what makes a good homesite. Today, we'll be detailing out what you should be looking for when searching for the land you want to build your Dream Home on.

List of things people should take into consideration when looking for a homesite:

1. Location

One of the most important things you should take into consideration when looking for land, is location. If you have a family, you might want to look for a location within a certain school district. Maybe you would like to live in a spot that is close to work or other community amenities that spark your interest. Wherever and whatever it may be - Red Door Homes can pair you up with a trusted REALTOR to help you find your DREAM location!

2. The Future

When buying a piece of land, many people get caught up in the present and forget to think about the future. For example, how much space and land in between you and the road? The trees on this land may need to be removed based on the home's location. Make sure to think about where your future home could be placed.

3. Think About the Things You Don't Want to Think About

It is important to think about the cons of the property you are considering. Even if you think you have found the perfect piece of land, make sure you know the setbacks (how close you can build to the border of your property). Also, don't forget to think about utilities such as power, waste, and water - how will you get them and what will they cost? Luckily, these are all things Red Door Homes can help you with! We offer a FREE Land Evaluation to assist you in making sure your Perfect Spot doesn't put you in a tight spot!

4. Make Sure The Lot Is Buildable

Another key component you need to take into consideration when looking for land is that the land is buildable. First and foremost if sewer service is not available the land must "perk" or be suitable for a Septic System. Don't purchase property without confirming this!
